Besides very slow service, and quiches are sold at R$ 26,00 and what they bring you is a mini quiche which doesn't even fill the palm of your hand.

I visited here in August during the Rio Olympics 2016, both before it got busy, during and after the games. I stayed with my wife and teenage son and got to know the place really well. Had lunch or brunch here a few times. Although the sandwiches are great and the hot food (specials) always enjoyable, it is the deserts... More

Sat down for a breakfast and checking my emails. Service and food was good. The juice menu is excellent and tasty! A nice little place with free wifi.

Hard to resist breads, sweets, waffles, and all sorts of temptations! Perfect for a snack in the middle of the morning, an afternoon tea, even lunch, all accompanied by a nice conversation and a superb experience for the senses. For snack type guys, this is paradise. The appearance, the smells, the brightness, all senses are exposed to a very rewarding... More

The food is good, I tried a sandwich it was well stuffed, but the service is terrible, it took about 20 min for a coffee and to put the sandwich to take away and there was a few people there. So go with time and patience...

We walked by this restaurant on our way from our apartment to the Siqueria Campos Metro stop during our Olympics stay in Rio and were tempted by the displays of cakes and pastries. On a day with a break from events we stopped in and enjoyed a late lunch with son having a chicken Caesar salad, husband a chicken Caesar... More

Great place for cakes. Popular spot always jam packed with people. Place bakes its own stuff and bought some great tasting biscuits to take home.

The Bakers was a block away from our apartment during our Olympics visit. It quickly became our to go breakfast/snack spot. The croissants and pastries are delicious. Coffee is nice and strong. There's plenty of breakfast options such as omelets or waffles. While the majority of the staff do not speak English, there is a gentleman there who speaks very... More

This Bakery was close to our hotel and we went several times. Each time found the service very slow whether we had sit down service or take out...take out took over 20 minutes for 2 cappuccinos and 2 pastries and there was no line up! The food is very good though... lots of variety from eggs, waffles, sandwiches, pastries, cakes... More

Conveniently located and great service. I had the best iced cappuccino I've ever tasted! Just a shame I only discovered this place on my last day - otherwise I would have visited every day. The place has recently been expanded - not surprising as it's an absolute gem. Highly recommend this to anyone!

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.
