Every time I visit Sao Paulo, a trip to Benjamin Abrahao is a must! The freshly baked breads, pastries, petit fours are simply delicious and the small restaurant also offers freshly prepared food. This is a really great bakery and highly recommended.

The food is great. Smells so good you'll always end up bringing home more than what you planned. It tastes great, looks amazing. But the service is below the average. Not very organized when standing on long queues, and they don't help you much. Sometimes you order something, and keep there standing, waiting for it, until after a long time... More

For baked goods lovers, this is a must go. You can't miss it while in Sao Paulo. Great environment and products, freshly baked and replaced all the time. Sweets and treats are a sin! Coffee lovers, you won't be disappointed at all! After so many years (this is the third generation in charge of the business) it's getting even better.... More

It's becoming almost like a tradition in são paulo, restaurants packed with poor service. Although this restaurant | bakery has some good tasting food like the delicious croissant, the service is so poor and amateur that it is enough to spoil the meal. If you enter this bakery happy and warm hearted, you will undeniably leave it with a headache... More

This is a good bakery ("padaria"), no better than one other in this neighborhood, but the service is sub par. Non-existent customer service at their website. In our last experience, our family went there to have breakfast (my wife, our son (baby boy in a stroller) and myself) and although half of the tables were free, there were previous customers...

A bakery one only finds in big cities: absolutely everything a bakery can offer, nice friendly service and a pleasant paulistanos crowd.

I use this Place most days when I am in Sao Paulo, just round the corner from my house. Sells lovely Bread, Ham and Cheese.

You have to try any kind of bread there, everything is fresh and delicious. The croissant is the best.

Brazilians in São Paulo love to have their late breakfast in nice "padarias" during weekends. Nice croissants, cakes, tipical "pao de queijo" and, of course, a nice cup of coffee with milk foam.

This is a must go. Everything is good in there. The "caseirinho" bread and the ham and cheese croissant are my favorites.
