Fantastic vegan food and cozy atmosphere

This is such a sweet place, everything was perfect, mainly vegan food and a few vegetarian choices. I ordered the soup of the day (which was beetroot), really good, and ate a toast with spinach, tofu and sundried tomatoes, which was the best toast I ever ate! The atmosphere in there was so cozy, super cute ambiente and the owner of the shop, a lovely lady, also helped us planning the rest of our day and finding the trains/busses etc. we needed to get.

Pros: So many vegan choices, Reasonable prices, Lovely owner

Too good to be truth

Small, cosy, very clean with great staff.
Don't evan know where to start, if with the delicious mushroom toast, the amazing vegan nata or the avocado and cocoa pie.
They have a very good selection of savoury and sweets, vegan and vegetarian as well as drinks, my favourite drink is the golden milk .

I absolutely recommend it. I love it ❤️❤️❤️

Pros: The food is amazing without processed ingredients , The staff very kind and loving , The prices are very good

Cons: Its addictive

Fantastic find

Mela Canela is a great find in the town of Sintra
It’s a small and simply but beautifully decorated cafe serving mostly vegan and some vegetarian food at reasonable prices.
We had roasted vegetables on toast with hummus (filling, tasty and unique), fresh tasting vegetable tarts (several) a coffee with rice milk and a most excellent sweet potato brownie (yes, sweet potato) with fruit and nuts on top. The raspberries lifted it to another dimension. All in all that came to €15.
The hostess and owner Mela and her staff are beautiful, warm people who were just wanted to thank over and over for the experience.

Pros: Unique and delicious offerings, Very good value, Warm staff
