Stopped here for a mid day snack. English is not spoken, but we managed to place our order accurately. Good for snacks and quick bites.

The place is very warm giving an aspect of a home atmosphere. Good attention from the staff. But it will be better if they accpet credit card.

This place has a nice coffee, a good Pão de Queijo, some nice cakes and that is it. No wifi, does not accept credit cards and staff is not really helpful.

Best espresso I have had in Brazil. Almost like in Italy. The fresh juices are also very nice. If you want a nice, light lunch, go here.. They have a variety in toasts. Take your time, cause it will take a while between your order and serving... But it's more than worth it!

Went here for a coffee late afternoon. The place itself is lovely, right in the historic centre. We sat upstairs and waited to be served. The waitress didn't have much idea about what was going on (we speak Portuguese so it wasn't a language problem). After ordering we waited about 30 minutes and politely chased the order a couple of... More

In the historic part of Paraty. This place is unassuming but with character to have you day dreaming the day away. The staff are nice and let you sit as long as you like. The coffee is tasty and reasonably priced too.

Located in the historic district of Paraty, this immaculately clean, upscale cafe provides a nice place to rest your weary feet while enjoying excellent coffee drinks. The menu and the offerings feel less authentically Brazilian than many other places but sometimes one isn't looking for authentic Brazilian.
