Ouro Preto has a lovely café scene but café cultural stands out. You cannot beat its prominent location off Praca Tiradentes. The place is beatiful. We went on a Saturday afternoon and there was live bossa nova entertainment. The menu is diverse and the waiter spoke English. Plus, wifi is fast and free. Check it out!

Ouro Preto is a delicious old town and Café Cultural is a real shelter for gastronomy and Culture Lovers. You can buy very interesting books and have a coffee in the restaurant. Good homely food from Minas mixed with International Cuisine. The interior decoration is elegant, everything you need to have a great time with your friends! I strongly recommend... More

Imagine a very cozy place, where you can read your book, chat with friends or just take your time sipping a cup of coffee or a glass of wine (or beer). That,s the perfect place to do that. Very friendly. And warm decoration. Indeed I recommend it.

Best coffee with ice cream i've ever had. Wont get 5 stars because the kitchen was closed, despite the fact that it was 5:30 pm and the place closes at 7 pm. But excelent service and ambience

The café is very comfortable, with sofas and soft chairs, and the coffee excellent, but despite a menu on a chalkboard outside, there was no food available when we visited. The kitchen was being re-decorated, as far as I could make out with only minimal Portuguese! The art exhibitions were also interesting, and we were sad that we could not... More

We spent several afternoons hanging around this welcoming place. Had beer and ice cream, not any real meals, but we liked the feeling a lot.

Plenty of cafes and bars serve the tourist trade in Ouro Preto - it's finding where the locals go which promises something extra. The Café Cultural sounds a worthy place - attached to the tourist information office, with an art gallery upstairs - but it turns out to be pleasantly lively and tasty. Specialising in bottled beers, it also serves... More
