Wonderful Place for Nostalgia!

It is probably the best place in Rio to have tea or breakfast or even lunch, altho´not well known for its cuisine. The old world charm and the beautiful mirrowed salon from Vienna elevate your mood. It has famous pastries that were being made almost a hundred years ago. It´s just a perfect place... read more

We visited Confeitaria Colombo in 2006 and decided to return during our next visit to Rio. The old world charm supported by fast professional waiters serving delicious coffees and snacks or pastries had not changed at all in the intervening 9 years and definitely did not disappoint. A "must see" around lunchtime in central Rio.

Colombo used to be the in place for the Rio socialites to be seen delicately sipping their tea or coffee and nibbling at one of the many delicious cakes and pastries and other delights. Although the customer mix has changed somewhat, the fitting and fixtures have not, this alone makes it a must for visitors! The lift up to the... More

This is a very traditional place in Rio. Used to be a point where the rich people used to get together in the XIX century. The food is good and traditional.

While the interior is pretty like everyone claims, the pastries weren't that great (although they looked great). Very over priced!
