Whether you're in for an espresso or want to have lunch, this is a good choice. The atmosphere is quiet, it's never full and you can always find a place to sit and enjoy a good book with your food.
The food is nice and well-priced (it looks very posh but the prices are quite reasonable!).
They also have art exhibitions and cultural events such as book launches and round-tables.

Espaço Edla is close to the train station in Sintra. They always have some paintings/watercolours in exhibition and the place aims at being something between modern, vintage and rustic: lots of white, comfy seats and pillows, stone walls and gourmet products (some not gourmet, but stemming straight from the Portuguese typical food products).
They have sandwiches, toasties, scones and several sweets, besides a daily lunch menu. The staff are nice and helpful, although the service can sometimes be a bit slow. Then again, I can't imagine why anyone would go there to be eating in a hurry.
The food is good, but if you have a sweet tooth I'd highly recommend the following exercise: look at the sweets display window; close your eyes; go "Eeny, meeny, miny, moe"; eat the sweet that destiny picked for you. Enjoy!

Lovely surroundings, but service incredibly slow. We didn't order anything complicated from the menu, but we waited 45-mins from point of ordering for our coffees and OJ, then a further 15-mins for 1 of our sandwiches, and finally 10-mins later we had the full order. I wish I could say that the sandwiches were worth the wait, but I'm afraid not. There were 2 staff on, and when we came in we were the only customers, so really cannot understand the wait
