Really good location, just at the Tiradentes square. The place is beautiful! And the great beer selection make it even better. Regional and international brands. The owners are really nice, and if you don't know witch beer to order, ask Vincent. He is from Belgium and know all about them. Worth the visit.

This place took me by surprise with its fairly large beer selection. Vincent, the owner, has found the best local beers and some of the greats from across the ocean (Belgium). Staff is friendly and a great resource if you are looking for something to do or see in Ouro Preto. Try the Bäcker beers, especially the Trigo (German weizen).

The local beers were a great find. Backer beers are worth a try. Pleasant cafe for coffee or a beer or a snack and very central with tourist info centre in same building. Attentive service from staff with some English.

A nice little cafe with extremely comfortable sofas. A perfect place to relax and enjoy a selection of teas, hot chocolate or beers while listening to some nice music. Great atmosphere! Vincent, the belgian owner, very friendly and helpful, has good tips for restaurants. Highly recommended.
