We stopped here for lunch, on the recommendation of our tour guide during travel here in Sintra.
It's got two locations. This one is up the hill, and the more popular one is at the foot of the hill, on the small street, and is crazy-packed.
The service here was VERY good. The waiters spoke english, and were very accommodating. The food was nothing extraordinary--the basics, mainly. But we had a nice seat near the window to enjoy the breeze. Of course, the desserts are what drives this place. The "almendria (sp?)", and the little "pillow" pastries were excellent. I couldn't find an equivalent in Lisbon proper. The service was a *little* slow, mind you.

When Sintra is crowded be prepared to wait a VERY long time just to buy a pastry. It seems each transaction is a virtual novel of intrigue....

I'm not sure why Piriquita I is listed as closed on tripadvisor. I was there a few weeks ago and the place was bustling, as it is perhaps the best pastry shop in the world. I'm not exaggerating, and the prices are very good. Many of the photos shown here for Piriquita II are actually of Piriquita I.

I recommend stopping here at the start of your trip to Sintra and at the end. It is worth it. I had a Pastel Nata for 1.20 euros. This is like a big slice of chocolate cake with pieces of sesame candy in it. Another pastry was only 1.10 euros. A large (Americano) coffee is 0.90 euros. Lemonade is 2.20 euros. See my photos!

Another great thing about Piriquita is that it is in the center of town, just down the road from the premiere attraction in Sintra, Quinta da Regaleira. See my review on this if you wish. It is a much more memorable attraction than Pena Palace or the Moorish Castle.

This place was recommended to us by a local, so we decided to try the desserts there. This place is also where Portuguese people go for a cup of coffee and desserts, the place was full, but we could easily find a table outside. Don't miss the Travesseiros (pastries with almond and egg yolk filling) and Queijadas (small pastries with cheese and cinnamon filling).

This is a must eat while in Sintra. For heaven`s sake, try their queijada and their `almofadinha de sintra`. They taste incredible. The whole restaurant is phenomenal. The waiters speak some english and it will cast your memory back to old times. Wonderful restaurant
