Good bakery, not exceptional

We went to have lunch and desert. The food was ok but I would not go there for lunch again. We had desert and it was good, deserving the four stars I am rating!

Classic Sao Paulo's kind of bakery. They have everything from candy to sparkling wine, from mortadela to coxinha. The staff is very helpful, the buffet is very good and even better if you ask for sandwiches on the counter. Definitely a good place for a quick bite if you're coming back from "balada".

Nice selection of breads and desserts. The price is not super cheap, but is not very expensive either. Service may let you down sometimes, but if you are looking for a quick meal or something to eat during the night this will be a good choice. Bear in mind that this is a bakery/ deli (like the famous "Padarias", very... More

Big buffet, with many types of bread, sweets, salads and soups. The place is always busy, particularly at late night.

Water was expensive but the food was not. Pão de queijo e mini coxinha tasted just ok, nothing to come back for. Beware this place is very crowded!

- Tip to Tourists: No Wifi - Expect a full house regardless the hour on this 24/7 bakery. Although it is overpriced, the place is a great option if you whether want to grab a quick meal (more expensive then other options serving the same food in the area) or to spend some time with your friends Shrimp Risotto or...

Really big and complete but without any real appeal about others. The menu seems a book and the food is expensive for a bakery.

I love Bella Paulista for breakfast, a coffee in The Middle of The day, lunch, dinner or late Night soup! The food is always very good, it is open 24hrs and you can appreciate The different "tribes" that circulate in the rainy São Paulo.
