Fortunately I didn't travel to far to have brunch in this place. Anyone who thinks this place is good probably eats breakfast at McDonald's. First of all services is bad, waiting time terrible and food quality very average. Unless you are very hungry and this is your last hope try to find something else. I was waiting 30 min for... More

We went here a few times during our trip to Rio. They offer delicious soup at a reasonable price (20BRL). Their caprese salad was also very good. They offer vegetarian choices, and have a large assortment of deserts. A lot of the products sold in the shop are also kosher.

Visited this place for brunch and we ordered chicken fettuccine and the roast beef sandwich followed by a strawberry and cream eclair and apple and sultana pie. All dishes were delicious and the service was great. This bakery/cafe comes with so many options both savoury and sweet and the decor is beautiful. Another bonus is that they have free wifi... More

We ate here twice during our stay in Rio. It's an excellent place with a decent amount of options. I had the risotto once and a sandwich the next time both of which were amazing. They have a huge selection of cakes. Again we tried a few of these and all were incredible. Definitely worth visiting this place while you're... More

Went twice during our trip and no one in our group had something they didn't like. Everyone was very nice and made an effort to understand our English. Would have gone every day if we visited earlier!

At first we didn't realise this was a restaurant because it looked like a shop from the outside but we decided to check it out and saw all this amazing food in display and cakes. We have been a few times and it all tastes good and well presented, service was great too. Love it.

In a recent visit to Rio, I rented an apartment on Rua Santa Clara. My apartment happened to be right across the street from "The Bakers". I ate there for either breakfast or lunch almost everyday during my week long stay. I was never disappointed. There is a wide selection of food and sweets. The service is excellent, by the... More

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

Staying in Copacabana

Neighborhood Profile
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.
