The temple of coffee in SP

São Paulo has terrific expresso options but if you were to pick THE temple, this would be it. A house full of coffee ninjas for your best experience.

Great menu, great environment, great decor, amazing coffee. The only downside is that I have already tried twice not paying for the optional 10% service (since I was not staying for the coffee and I had brought my to go mug), and they made a huge fuss about it, they made me feel super bad about not paying the 10%...

This hole in the wall coffee place is easy to miss with a rather inconspicuous logo and sign hidden behind foliage. Went there on the recommendation of a friend and was not disappointed. They serve really good coffee in an experiment style. You can choose one of many "rituals" (which probably should be called "experiments" instead) where they will compare... More

Visit this place if you love coffee. If you don't like coffee still visit , it will change your mind. Tell them it's your first visit and the staff will explain the concept. You can go for just a coffee but the different rituals offer the opportunity to try coffee in different ways and the cakes aren't bad either -... More

Beautiful space and a great menu. Great selection of drinks and beans. In the vila madelena neighborhood and tucked into a small set back space. Darling patio seating and relaxed decor. If i lived in Sao Paulo, i would make extra efforts to visit this coffee house weekly.

There are several coffee shops that roast their own beans in São Paulo (Santo Grão, Suplici etc), but Coffee Lab is much more than that - its a full coffee experience hosted by enthusiasts. Apart from making a fantastic coffee, the staff are very happy to walk you through the pros and cons of wide range of coffee making paraphernalia... More

Definitely among the best coffee shops in São Paulo. The coffee and food quality is excellent. Unfortunately the menus are filthy and the the smell is unpleasant when the coffee beans are being roasted. Service style is weird: you have to stand up to place your order, even if a waiter is right next to you. Then you get served... More

It is a great place to drink coffee. Well trained professionals, free wi-fi, free drinking water (it is not a habit here). You have several options of coffee experiences: a) you can try the combination between coffee and cream cheese; b) you can prove coffee made with tap water and with Italian mineral water; and so on...

Staying in Pinheiros

Neighborhood Profile
Exploring Pinheiros, a neighborhood known for cozy restaurants and cafes, you will notice a youthful energy. Several cultural centers and institutes surround the area and even its main church, Calvário, hosts a traditional Brazilian “Festa Junina” - a celebration with traditional music, dance, and food during the months of June and July. On the weekends, residents gather at Benedito Calixto Square, a loud and crowded area where people enjoy live music drinks alongside the antiquities fair.
