“Beautiful, expensive spot”
Reviewed 6 August 2014

The 19th century building and wood, mirror and glass interior is spectacular. It is well worth poking your head in if you are walking around Centro. The snacks and sweets are very good. Try a cachaça tart! Tea on the top floor is an option for those who like that in the afternoon. Coffee drink? Be warned. A cappuccino will come with a mountain of what can only be described as icing on it. If that weren't enough, it will already have sugar and cinnamon in it. Pack a toothbrush for this visit. Our party had three cappuccinos and a small assortment of treats. The bill ran R80, which is quite a bit I'd say. Servers seem tolerant of having to wait on customers. There might be a line, but it moves quickly.

“Must go”
Reviewed 10 July 2014

If you are in Rio and walking around downtown, you must stop at this place.
The old building where it stands is just amazing.
Food and desert are also a temptation. You won't regret.

“A must see and taste!”

Food is good and desserts are amazing! So good it is hard to pick one! The building itself is a beauty. Definitely a must see if you are visiting Rio. They also have a branch in Forte Copacabana.

“lovelly lunch”
Reviewed 5 July 2014

Beyond the marvellous meals you may have the experience to have a lunch at a art nouveau place from the 19 th century. On the weeks you may listen a pianist in this wonderful place where the chicken croquette is divine!!!
