My friends and I had a take away breakfast from here and I can't wait to go again to stay in one of the rooms and enjoy an eat-in breakfast. People queue to get into Saudade so plan ahead if you want to visit. The...food is delicious and the menu varied. I had Saudade coffee which I loved and did not manage to get anywhere else in Portugal. I also had the Omega Sandwich which was divine. The staff are super helpful and friendly, service is great, and the decor is brilliant. They cater for people with celiac disease. Can't wait to visit again and cannot recommend this place enough.More
Service, food, drink and location makes this the perfect spot. Our service was excellent and friendly and even made friends with a beautiful dragonfly that had wandered into the room. Ordered the panini which normally is nothing to get too excited about but it was...outstanding. To close the meal we had the famous apple pie that we (mostly me) ate in its entirety. Just fabulous. Enjoyed Cafe Saudade in all categories.More
A warm and friendly welcome into a comfortable setting that was only topped by the fantastic lunch and great coffee. Overall a wonderful place to have a meal or grab a quick coffee and snack. Will definitely be back when in Sintra next.
We loved everything about this place. Went for a breakfast and everything was delicious: salmon sandwich, cheesecake, coffee, fresh juice, yogurt. Interior is great, but the staff is the best:) When leaving we wanted to take pastel de nata with us, but we accidentally dropped...it on the floor, they exchanged it for us for free and did not even want to take a tip. The way they handled this simply made our day:)More
Delicious vegetarian ( but also not vegetarian) food !! The sandwiches are very big and the Sintra pasteis are amazing ! The people are so nice and friendly , would definitely recommend visiting this place !
Very nice cafeteria with excellent service.Very nice and cozy atmosphere. Charming decor. Huge menu selection. The food and drinks were fresh and absolutely delicious. Very good coffee. The staff are also great and the prices are good. After a wonderful day on the walk, this...is the best place in Sintra for a break. I definitely recommend it.More
After couple of years we came back to this place and were very pleased to see it hasn't changed. The best apple pie ever is still there, as well as the most chocolaty cake you've ever seen. And the atmosphere is like in your grandma's...house. I hope they never change.More
We stopped here on our way back to the train station after a lovely day wandering around beautiful Sintra. The decor was quirky and there were little rooms off the main area. The service was very good with the lady taking the time to describe...the different craft beers. I had the orange cake which was very big, moist, light and delicious. The scone arrived and was almost the size of the plate! The fruit inside was juicy and plentiful and as the scone was so big we all got a bit. Really glad we found this lovely place.More

I apologize for not seeing your question before now. I hope if the restaurant was open and you went, you were not disappointed. I know they are usually open on a Sunday. Again, my apologies for not seeing your question prior... More
