We loved this place without a name that is called Cultivar Brasil. Looking for a breakfast in Santa Tereza, it was simple and crowded. A good sign. It is foremost the best place in Rio to try the Pao de Queijo - according to one...More

This small, cosy restaurant is probably best place to have cheese bread, açai juice and tapioca wraps in Rio. It’s located in the Saint Theresa neighbourhood. We visited twice (once at breakfast time and the other time around lunch time). It was always crowded. The...More

Ok, so you must be thinking :"Is it the right place?" It is very simple, don't have any signal at the door with the name, very small, a few seats and always the daily journal on the table! It is close to the cinema of...More

My second time in Rio, and I've sampled the pao de queijo in almost every street corner...this place outdoes it all. Delicious acai, incredible pao de queijo, and if they have it in stock try their cashew pasoca too! Amazing!

We had to walk 25 min to get to this place and it wasn't an easy walk (steep). But we liked the acai and cheese bread so much that we did it 4 days in a row. Always packed with locals and tourists. Best acai...More

This small place is always full and all products are organic. The staff does not speak english. The portions are enormous. So make sure you order a small Açaí if you also order a portion of Pão de Queijo as we could not finish ours....More

You guys, half a liter of acaí is a TON of acaí. We got one (it's a large size - the small is 300ml) and split it between the two of us. I felt like I was on the verge of a diabetic coma for...More

We walked straight past this little place - no branding anywhere, just 5 tables and a counter! The Acai Bowl was super simple and delicious with a mini side of granola, and the holy heck - the pao de queijo were SO GOOD. A collection...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.
