This place can not be missed in Santa Teresa! My wife and I had a great time there. We enjoyed the desserts (especially the banana cheese cake and the brownie with chilly pepper jam. The staff was also very attentive. We'll always recommend it! :)

The cafe is unique. Beautifully decorated patio is a dream to be sitting in a hot day. They serve excellent espresso and also artisanal beer, like Brazilian IPA, which is hard to find.

They have a great selection of sandwiches including a pastrami sandwich that took me back home. The home made lemonade is wonderfully refreshing. The atmosphere is engaging. It's just up off the street in the dancing shade of large trees with interesting artifacts dappled all...More

Santa Teresa
Santa Teresa is a bohemian enclave hosting many local
artists’ studios. The narrow, winding streets of this
neighbourhood were revitalised years ago, and visitors
can now stroll through this area to view magnificent
mansions dating back to the late 19th and early 20th
century. A highlight not miss: Museu Chacará do Céu, a
former mansion turned museum which houses works by
prominent Brazilian modern artists.
