Best Tapioca in São Paulo

If you want a quick and tasty meal, go to this bakery. Amid so many options of snacks and sanduiches, my favorite continues being the Tapioca (original Brazilian food) with white cheese.

For R$20 you can have an all-you-can-eat afternoon tea with unlimited coffee and juices. Some of the pastries seem a little old/dry, but generally its all good. Staff are pleasant and attentive, and generally it is a nice quiet place to meet wih friends.

This smart bakery in a pleasant residential area has an upstairs cafe where you can have sandwiches, juices, coffee, etc. In the afternoon they have an 'all-you-can-eat' buffet which is incredible value at 21.40 Reals. For this, there is a great selection of hot and cold savouries/sandwiches, sweet treats and fruit and you can also drink as much fruit juice... More

I love my sweets and cakes, my sweet tooth never deceives me....So, I obviously had to check out what the rave is all about and I must say that there are much better bakeries in Sampa. Not that anything tastes foul, however, all these deliciously looking pretty cakes taste average. My friend and I, had in the last 2 weeks... More

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.

Staying in Higienopolis

Neighborhood Profile
Higienopolis
Elegant, charming and filled with green spaces, Higienópolis is an upper-class residential neighborhood with great restaurants, interesting cultural institutions and fine shopping. Visit Buenos Aires Park, a dog-friendly and safe place to relax during the day. There you can get a feel for the local life, as it’s not a mainstream tourist destination. For dining, Vilaboim Square is a trendy place with tasty food and a nice bar environment for happy hour. Walk a few blocks and you’ll come to Higienópolis Shopping Mall, where luxury shops (and also some affordable stores) are a favorite distraction for locals.
