“Fantastic tea place”

Reviewed 8 December 2013

we were trying to 'kill' sometime while waiting for the train back to Lisbon. we happen to come across this shop. initially we thought it was a shop selling some handicrafts due to the display of some costumes from 'romantic era'. however, we were hugely wrong as it happens to be a restaurant. the 'tea set' that consist of a caramel muffin & espresso caught my eye. coz the set cost 1.20 euros. my friend and i both got 1 set each and it was just amazing!
we also bought some packets of biscuits and marmalade as gifts. the people wrapped them up nicely for us!
the shop is about 5min away from the Sintra train station. go down the super steep steps and turn to the left. u'll be able to find the shop.

Just wandered into this very pretty space, quiet and cozy. Lunch was a very good value and the food was pleasant, with lovely desserts. Waiter was attentive and helpful.

Gorgeous cakes at very reasonable prices & fantastic coffee. Well worth a detour from the station, go down the very steep stairs opposite the station entrance

I visited this, because on the 2nd floor there´s a guest house from the same owners and the breakfast is served in the tea house. Fresh bread, milk, tea, cooffe, cheese, ham, jam, juice and if you can resist (I doubt you can) there´s a few beatiful cakes available as well. More traditional or more fruity, all of them just...gorgeous!

Also there´s 2 things I must detach, the decoration of all place...just gorgeous and modern. And the other one, the empathy of the owners/service, very,very,very nice people. They know how to make the guest welcomed and confortable. The couple, they are such a great hosts!

The place is very quiet and we went in to have a cup of coffee and a piece of cake - really great lemon cake!
The prices are quite good for the size of the servings and the quality you get.
The service might not be superfast, but it is polite and extremely friendly.
It is a good place to spend a little time eating, taking a look at the gourmet food products and the art exhibits they have.
I didn't taste the icecream, but they had really interesting flavours, like goat cheese or pumpkin. Next time!
