The Depánneur is a really nice Delicatessen in the heart of Botafogo, on the long stretched main square of Botafogo, at Botafogo Metro Station, on Rua Nelson Mandela. Botafogo turned out to be the neighborhood in Rio, where I use to stay most of the...More

Definitely go here if you love breakfast. Pretty good service, the food is amazing, and the take away will have you returning, like we did before the flight home.
