Café Girondino lies close to Mosteiro de São Bento, in downtown São Paulo. It´s charming and elegant inside. But, as soon as I sat down, I´ve found out that the place has no wi-fi. Every self-respecting café in SP offer this to its customers. Then...More

Traditional Coffee shop in downtown São Paulo. Also has a restaurant. Great stop for good coffee when you are shopping in "25 de Março" area.

To truly know São Paulo, you have to start at the old
center, full of history and landmarks with stories to
tell. Get a taste of local food at the Municipal
Market, and if you are brave enough, head to the
crowded shopping street “25 de março” for cheap deals
on a wide assortment of items. Beautiful buildings in
this area include the Post Office Building, Luz
Station, Pagé Gallery, Pateo do Colegio and the iconic
