I am of the kind that likes expressos and books. I found both in this place. The atmosphere is cozy, the service friendly. A nice place to stop while walking the steepy Streets of the city.

Wonderful decoration , great coffees and beers and teas. Together with a " petit gâteau ", perfect combination with one of their many hot or cold coffees ! Very nice Belgian owner; Vincent gives you all kind of advise about the City and surroundings... I highly recommend this unique place, because the City lacks of this kind of cultural places!

Loved the whole experience there. Comfortable place where you can have a nice soup, good pão de queijo and, specially a fantastic banana petit gateau. Seriously, if you like banana, go for it. They also have a cool selection of beers. Really enjoyed it.

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.

We stopped into this cafe for a cool drink on a very hot December afternoon. The tables are comfortable and the large windows let in a cool breeze. My husband was thrilled to find some nice beers on the menu (other than the ubiquitous Skol) and I had a delicious iced coffee. We didn't try the food because we'd already... More
