I thought this was Subway but Subway was next door. This was better and cheaper and bigger subs! Paulo the person who served me gave the Portuguese list in English so I knew what I was getting and it was more cheaper than Mc Donalds and more filling. I only paid 7,725 Reil and a Big Mac is 23 Reils.

Went here twice for desserts, so we tried some of their splits, the petit gateau, and a bunch of the ice cream flavours. As English-only speakers we didn't find it any more difficult than elsewhere to order, and the staff were understanding. The fruit in the splits was quite tasty, and they offer a good variety of ice cream flavours.... More

Really good to go to for coffee and/ or dessert. Numerous ice cream flavours. You choose. tub size and the. just as for as many scoops of as many flavours as you like. You pay by the weight! Not many staff speak English. I asked for what I thought was hot chocolate and I received a glass filled with what... More

Hi, Carmenere. Thank you for your avaliation. You're right, the most part of our staff don't speak English, but we have the menu in English to help. We also stimulate our employees to learn the language, dedicating part of the service time to practice with Duolingo application. Our hot chocolate that is more consistent and creamy, however, is not melted... More

They have good icecream. Expensive but good. We ordered one iced coffee and they gave us espresso. When we told them it was wrong they didn't say sorry or offer to make it right, they just blamed a coworker. We even asked in Portuguese.

Oficina do Sorvete serves sandwiches (like subway does) and more than 50 ice cream flavors. Pick as many flavors as you wish and choose from different toppings, fruits and sauces (white chocolate, bananas and strawberries are among the best). You'll receive a payment ticket and can pay after you've finished your ice cream. Nothing beats this ice cream on a... More

Huge selection of delicious ice cream flavours with toppings. You pay by weight and the prices are very reasonable. Also serves drinks and lunches.

The ice cream "Fabrica do Sorvete" is like the Bariloche's ice cream - the best ice cream in the world.

First the good things: beautiful place, good parking, great looking ice cream. The bad: horrible service, they should be ashamed. We went here to get 2 strawberry splits and the place was more or less empty. There was plenty of staff doing nothing at all so we placed our order and to our shocking surprise, the staff started arguing amongst... More

The 15cm sandwich was around $3-$4. We had the Peru and the Beef. Both were adequate. For my taste it had a bit too much cheese and a little too few veggies, but I guess It's mostly my fault for not knowing enough Portuguese to ask them to modify the recipe! :)
