Best fricking coffee so far in Brazil, and how pleasant people are in the south, only adds to that. You only have to walk by and you know you gotta stop and have one.

This coffee shop sells only coffee. The locals queue up only for the coffee. They could sell all sorts of other stuff (muffins, sandwiches etc.) But they don't. They concentrate only on giving you outstanding coffee. They do all the important stuff like ensuring the cups are warmed too. I had the best coffee here in 6 months travelling around... More

We had an excellent trip to the central market and it was a delight surprise to find this little cafe in the market after yet another full steak meal. Great coffee and they also have nice package coffee beans and chocolate, so we got to finish the gift shopping too. Don't miss it if you are already in the market.

It all depends on expectations. After reading these great reviews, I skipped breakfast at my hotel to come try it out. Yes, the coffee is good. And that is it. The atmosphere is not that special (except that it is located in the beautiful Mercado Publico) and there is no food to speak of to go with your coffee. The... More

Tasteful and excellent quality coffee inside Mercado Publico. Not very cheap, but a good experience at all.

Inside the Mercado Publico, a tourist attraction by itself, because there you can see, smell and taste this southern city, you'll also find the Cafe do Mercado. In two small stores, one upfront the other, you'll taste one of the best espressos in town. Wifi is available for free and other coffee drinks too. Visiting downtown Porto Alegre, just a... More

Cafe do Mercado is a tiny place located at the Public Market, where it's possible to enjoy a tasty expresso, and take home fresh grounded coffee. It smells very good, and tastes well also.

This place is almost a fetish. Everything is about coffee, and good coffe. Started in the public market, with a small place serving the coffee made out of grains they sell, and now, well... its still the same thig, only bigger lol

It is a very old and traditional market where still today you can buy excellent choices of Brazilian and imported foods. The Barraca 51 and the Cafe are special places to eat and have a very good fruit salad and ice cream.

This large cafe/outside bar was close to where we were staying in Porto! It was a great find and just what we needed after a hot day's travel. We tried out their home made pizza dough garlic bread which was delish, tried their authentic lemonade, huge G and T and the local speciality a sort of steak, burger sandwich thing... More
