This was one of the culinary highlights of our Rio trip - an awesome old style grand cafe - great coffee and snacks too if your feeling peckish - went back twice more really enjoyed

We went here as part of our tailored tour and weren't disappointed. The food options were delicious, service was excellent and the history and architecture was a fantastic bonus.

We have enjoyed some Brazilian sweets and pastries at Confeitaria Colombo in Rio de Janeiro. The place atmosphere is amazing. The building with its mirrors covering most walls and the view from the second floor is quite nice. Confeitaria Colombo is a tradition of the "old Rio" when the city was the Capital of Brazil.

We were at Confeitaria Colombo during a weekend and it was very busy. The atmosphere is fantastic and place is really nice. Service was poor, few waiters had no time to give attention to clients. Food was ok, but not unforgettable. Visit a very nice place of historical Rio de Janeiro and have some "appetizers" at the front bar counter.

We visited the most antique house, and we loved it! We had lunch there. The meal was delicious, and the price was reasonable. We recommend it!

The building is amazing and the atmosphere is very cozy! Everything is delicious! It's perfect for a break in the afternoon or to have nice breakfast during the week. You can also have luch there. Price is a little bit high bit it worths!

Confeitaria Colombo is a cool place to have some coffee, eat some snack or sweet made there. Worths the visit in both locations, Forte de Copacabana and city center!

Staying in Centro

Neighborhood Profile
Centro
Downtown Rio is the place where this city was born. With modern skyscrapers sharing space with historical buildings and landmarks, this neighbourhood is living proof that the old and the new can live together harmoniously. As you would expect, downtown is where all major companies house their offices. However, the region isn’t restricted to businesses. Gems such like the “Paço Imperial,” which is a cultural centre that used to serve as a residence for governors of Brazil, can be found here. Pedra do Sal, a Monday night street party, is also in this neighbourhood. This landmark is the birthplace of samba and is famous for its “roda de sambas” (“dance circles”). Stop in for one and get closer to discovering where Brazilian happiness comes from.
