Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

They serve the same sweets as Piriquita 1 but have no table service, so you can take it to your table. They have a terrace (meaning some people were smoking). So it's not quite as charming as the lower shop, but it's a good option...if the lower one is too crowded.More

Our continued appreciation of the Portuguese pastry showed no signs of slowing down in Sintra as we carefully selected 5 pastries for our lunch time treat. We then sat outside the palace and demolished them with reckless abandon. As always they went down very well...and are highly recommended.More

Nice little pit stop for coffee and the traditional cake of Sintra - Travesseiro. Table service was a little shambolic though; I was sat at a table for quite a while without being acknowledged. The waiter saw me sitting there but tried to avoid making...eye contact. After a few minutes I got up and went to the counter to ask for a menu, after that service was pretty quick. I also wanted some tap water, but the waiter flew away so quickly I didn’t get a chance to ask! So again I had to go up to the counter to ask for the water. Coffee was good, and the cake was lovely. First impressions weren’t good due to poor customer service, but I enjoyed my cake.More

One of Sintra’s oldest bakeries, here one can buy all the local staples and it’s definitely worth sampling pretty much all of them, maybe throughout the day while hiking the nearby hills. Travesseiros and queijadas are the unmissable favorites and while they are all super...tasty, they are certainly a sugar overload.More

Visited on a Friday afternoon during a tour. Tried a travesseiro dessert per our guide's recommendation. Ordered the traditional with almond and cream. I didn't particularly enjoy it, but my husband did. The restaurant itself was very cute, clean, and also had indoor seating.

Our guide showed us this place and said that there we can try a special local cookie from Sintra. Here it is, on the photo! Very delicious, soft and sweet. Just try ;)

Clean, prompt service in these difficult times. Pastries the best. Nice undercover area. Pavement outside being refurbished in the street so be careful.

Before leaving Sintra, we couldn't miss visiting Piriquita ... The place is packed, and for one reason: everything there is delicious. The classic is the Travesseiro de Sintra, but there are so many other options that I really wanted to eat one of each... Unfortunately,...they are not exactly friendly, and a little bit confusing (they brought some things we didn't order), but it is worth anyway!More

Very lovely place. Their desserts surprised me - the quality was better than other pastry shops I've visited. Too bad the staff wasn't the friendliest...

We ordered the chicken salad with mango and the tuna sandwich. Both were very good and prices are really reasonable. Coffee was great too. We will return

This is a sister restaurant to Piriquita, the first of its kind. They specialize in traditional and delicious Portuguese pastries, with a specialty of the unique Sintra pastry called the Travesseiro. It's a filled puff pastry with several kinds of filling. We tried them all...and they were all terrific. The other pastries are also tasty. The rest of the munu is just ordinary. Just come for the Travesseiros.More
