we ate in the bakers on our last day, wanting to kill some time decided to have a leisurely brunch. It is such a bustling but organised place. It is a mixture of a deli and sit down area. We sat down for breakfast, our waiter was very attentive and spoke perfect English. The menu was varied and both the... More

The Bakery became a place of deliciousness & delight while in Rio. We went so often the staff grew to know us & generously tolerated our lack of Portuguese - & our lack of familiarity with cake ordering process!

We came here because of the good reviews. However, the breakfast selection disappointed us. We ordered an apple strudel which looked nice, yet it contained a whole miniature apple which was not peeled, deseeded and it even had a petiole which wasn't removed (see photo). The cheese-filled pastry was fatty and not tasty at all. Not recommendable!

We've been coming to this bakery for over two years, and we highly recommend it. Delicious pastries..., scrumptious sandwiches...., great coffee and much much more! Make it a point to stop by when in Rio, you won't regret it!

Beautiful cakes and pastries make this place a good stop for a light bite. There is a sit-down restaurant in the back, or grab at the counter. I would make this a stop for breakfast too.

Our guide recommended The Bakers and it's definitely worth going the little way from Copacabana beach to visit. I had the best iced cappuccino and strudel while my other half had a delish slice of chocolate cake. Friendly smiley service too.

Cute, excellently decorated, you wouldn't believe you were in Copacabana beach but in a british-style cafe! Having said this, mostly locals were eating here and had a brazilian ambience with good value brunch/afternoon tea options (cakes, pastries, etc). 100% worth a visit even if for 15 minutes in between your sunbathing! Might be hard to get a table.

The Bakers was our breakfast spot in Rio. Inexpensive, good, and convenient. Couldn't be beat! They have the BEST croissants, too. Plus, free WiFi.

Staying in Copacabana

Neighborhood Profile
Copacabana
The rowdy Copacabana is one of the most traditional and old areas from Rio de Janeiro. This neighbourhood is a blend of Brazilian soul - crowded, rowdy and traditional. This neighbourhood has a bit of everything: bars with music, pubs, street fairs, chaotic streets, and many shops. All these things and more live side-by-side. There are options for all price points and tastes. However, the most powerful draw in Copacabana is still the fantastic view of the coast and the incredible beaches.
