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.

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.

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!!!

The second floor had a great buffet, but the first floor is full of great taste, from coffee to dessert, the maracuya cake is delicious.

Built in the 20's, with giant Belgian mirrors all arround, stylish small tables and chairs, it is really worth the trip and the waiting line for a meal or just a snack.

It keeps the old tradition. The food is extraordinary and the place a typical tropical belle-epoque café and restaurant. It's really worth visiting.

Amazing buffet lunch - the food was gorgeous. Fish, meats, more meats, sides, salads - everything. Then dessert - miniatures of all the treats in the bakery downstairs (so don't eat any before lunch!). Mmmmmm try a little of everything. A couple of dishes were a little salty, but otherwise exquisitely cooked and presented. Would be good it there were... More

This place is for sure something else. The little streets in the downtown are all kind dirty and weird, but when you get to “Confeitaria Colombo” you just know I’ve found it, ‘cause it’s so different from everything else. Through the glasses doors you can see the lights, the vintage style and you’ll feel like in different year. Anyway, that... More

We had the buffet lunch on the superior floor level, the food was very good and there was plenty of different options all included in the buffet. Unfortunately we couldn't try them all even if we stayed there all day we were just to full. The deserts and cakes are gorgeous and again there are so many options the problem... More
