Avoid this rip off. The worst ribs I’ve ever bought, the meat tasted like it was boiled 10 days ago, frozen and then boiled again for me to eat. It was grey, tough and tasteless. Simply awful. Then they drown it in a mediocre sauce...More

I went for breakfast and it was quite nice. The staff were very attentive! Prices are not too bad and they have plenty of choice! I went for the “bodybuilding breakfast” and my partner went for the “chicken and waffles”. They are really big portions!...More

I travel to Brazil pretty often and each time I dine at Gringo Cafe. Every visit, the food gets better and so does the service. If you’re in the mood for American style breakfast, lunch, or dinner, you will for sure want to visit this...More

As a Gringa (read: American), I can 100% recommend this place for a more american style breakfast. I've been here multiple times and have loved everything. Prices are pretty reasonable for a nice brunch. The last time I went I got a cappuccino for 6R...More

Came here almost everyday for breakfast. Everything is made at the time so it’s super fresh. Each time it was perfect and always served with a smile. I think one of the beat places around ipanema for breakfast
