Café Saudade

Cafe in Sintra

This former bakery, where Sintra’s famous queijadas (crisp pastry shells filled with a marzipan-like mix of fresh cheese, sugar, flour and cinnamon) were made, has cherub-covered ceilings and a rambling interior. It's a fine spot for pastries (the massive scones are a travel highlight in the making), lighter fare or an evening glass of wine.

A gallery in back features changing art exhibitions. It also runs a refined guest house, Chalet Saudade, nearby.
