Tucked away in an area with loads of high street chain stores is this oasis of old charm and class. The food was excellent and not pricey and the atmosphere with the stained glass ceiling unsurpassed. Had a long stretched out lunch and desert here. Highly recommended (we did this after visiting the Cathedral, just nearby).

One of Rio's classic eateries, with a beautiful old time interior. You have the choice of going in for a restaurant meal or ordering coffee and snacks at the bar on the first floor. Since it can be confusing your first time, here's how you order if you go for snacks and coffee: 1. walk around and choose what you... More

Confeitaria Colombo is one of the most interesting places to have from a little bite of typical old time sweets normally originally from Portugal or a nice afternoon tea with special and again old fashioned recipies , or else have a nice lunch with a violin player in a calm and in luxurious atmosphere of the 1920's belle epoque style....

When you go to Confeitaria Colombo, it looks like you're in the 20's. It's a beatiful place, surrounded by mirrors and a very beautiful ceiling. It's ideal for lunch, some coffee and dessert. The sandwiches are tasty, with the option of salad or french fries. You have to wait in a row in the months of december, january and february... More

This place is historical and beautiful. It´is an excellent place to visit. And it´s better arrive early because it´s common to find it full.

It is just one of the oldest coffee places in Rio, where very famous people from all world have been there. You won`t find a place with such a class and history to have a cup of coffee in Rio. Everything is just very good!!!!

Looks like you are in Paris at Belle Epoque. The place opened 120 years ago. The desserts are nice and the place is always full. They have a small restaurant on the right side and another more formal on the first floor. We decided to try the small one. It was 2PM and they had only two choices. Meet or... More

Had the opportunity to visit here after a local tour guide recommended it to me. So glad they did, I would have missed a wonderful experience otherwise. The restaurant is from a bygone age and it's wonderful huge mirrors from Antwerp make it a great place to try some local specialities. I was overwhelmed by the choice of sweet and... More
