Description: The Guerin namesake has been aligned with pastry arts for almost a century, Dominique Guerin’s grandfather opened his bakery in the suburbs of Paris in 1921. It was here, during WWII, that Gaston Lenôtre began his training, laying the foundation for the culinary revolution the chef would later lead. A few decades later the Lenôtre-Guerin relationship would take another turn, when in the early seventies a young Dominique Guerin would begin his own training with Lenôtre. Guerin’s work with the master brought the young chef to Rio, for the opening of the Rio Palace (now Sofitel) in 1979. Thirty years have passed and in between Guerin worked in some of the finest restaurants around the world before returning to Copacabana – first as the pastry chef for Sofitel, now as the owner/operator of Boulangerie Guerin."Nathan M.

Not a place for a meal. I went with my wife for lunch and had tp come back for dessert. The desserts were amazing. A++++ my wife is a sweet freak and she already told me that we need to come back every day while we are in Rio

Great espresso ever, Quality is amazing, I think they do not use Lavazza but they don't need to.

Suggest to try the Croissant as well, they have several options.

A good place where to have breakfast. Just ask for the "menu breakfast" and then add some itens you would like, by seeing them at the balcony.
Finish with a regular strong coffee.

Great coffee and pastries... great for a quick breakfast or snack. The cappuccino was great. They are a great staff and there is wifi connection. I had the croissant aux ammendes, just coming out of the oven and it was glorious!

The visual is very nice. They made a very good investment there. We ate the best pain au chocolat outside France.

Croissants are so so as they are not "pates feuilleté" like the pain au chocolat.

Products there are high quality but also ridiculously overpriced. 2 croissants, 2 pains au chocolat, 1 pain aux raisins, 1 espresso, 1 latte and 1 very small juice can cost you BRL 50, what is outrageous.

Service is very cordial, too well-trained that became artificial...

There are no seats to eat there, only very uncomfortable improvised benches. If you are willing to go, it's better to take away.
