Quick easy and healthy, Big Polis was our breakfast stop every morning in Rio, an acai with granola or a juice... great start to the day. The burgers were also great for a quick lunch.

They served faster than it took the 4 of us to choose the order. The juices are fresh and tasty, the sandwiches generously stuffed. Can't imagine a better way to have a quick lunch in Leblon.

You will find all across Rio two places that serve amazing sandwiches and juices. Bibi and Big Polis. They are both excellent serving amazing fillet mignon sandwiches which are better than the prego and the burger. Dont dont miss this fast cafe.
