I used to come here before their makeover and returned for the first time after. It's nicer. Cozier, with a tidier look, less chaotic. However, service has slowed down too. Their chocolate croissant remains one of the finest things I've ever tasted. Do not - I repeat - do not leave this place until you've tasted it. It eats all... More

I've visited this bread house for 20 years, after their renovation which they reopened recently, the service has fallen drastically. It takes longer to get your orders when in the past you could take it immediately. The variety of breads has fallen with the new opening and by the time I reached the register to pay, there were more orders... More

This bakery used to be a great choice for breakfast in São Paulo. In the last two experiences I was very disappointed due to the poor service and the appearance of the space related to cleaning aspects. In addition, two refrigerators weren't working and it seemed the bakery was closed.

If you want a quick and tasty meal, go to this bakery. Amid so many options of snacks and sanduiches, my favorite continues being the Tapioca (original Brazilian food) with white cheese.

For R$20 you can have an all-you-can-eat afternoon tea with unlimited coffee and juices. Some of the pastries seem a little old/dry, but generally its all good. Staff are pleasant and attentive, and generally it is a nice quiet place to meet wih friends.

This smart bakery in a pleasant residential area has an upstairs cafe where you can have sandwiches, juices, coffee, etc. In the afternoon they have an 'all-you-can-eat' buffet which is incredible value at 21.40 Reals. For this, there is a great selection of hot and cold savouries/sandwiches, sweet treats and fruit and you can also drink as much fruit juice... More

I love my sweets and cakes, my sweet tooth never deceives me....So, I obviously had to check out what the rave is all about and I must say that there are much better bakeries in Sampa. Not that anything tastes foul, however, all these deliciously looking pretty cakes taste average. My friend and I, had in the last 2 weeks... More

Every time I visit Sao Paulo, a trip to Benjamin Abrahao is a must! The freshly baked breads, pastries, petit fours are simply delicious and the small restaurant also offers freshly prepared food. This is a really great bakery and highly recommended.

The food is great. Smells so good you'll always end up bringing home more than what you planned. It tastes great, looks amazing. But the service is below the average. Not very organized when standing on long queues, and they don't help you much. Sometimes you order something, and keep there standing, waiting for it, until after a long time... More

For baked goods lovers, this is a must go. You can't miss it while in Sao Paulo. Great environment and products, freshly baked and replaced all the time. Sweets and treats are a sin! Coffee lovers, you won't be disappointed at all! After so many years (this is the third generation in charge of the business) it's getting even better.... More

Neighborhood Profile
Elegant, charming and filled with green spaces, Higienópolis is an upper-class residential neighborhood with great restaurants, interesting cultural institutions and fine shopping. Visit Buenos Aires Park, a dog-friendly and safe place to relax during the day. There you can get a feel for the local life, as it’s not a mainstream tourist destination.
