“The excellence!”
Reviewed December 3, 2012

When my friends told me to visit Colombo, by the photos I've seen It was not a very friendly place, but when I got there I was amazed, cuz those giant mirrors on the wall, the toasts and the "must eating" ice cream make this place one of the bests I've ever visited!!

“Every tourist must stop by”
Reviewed December 1, 2012

One of the most touristic spots in Rio. Very nice place to take your family and spend some hours.
Every time my mom visits Rio she always stop by at Colombo to take a coffee break. Since 1894, a very classic point in Rio. Been there last Nov/2012 and was really nice to come back again.

“Cafe Colombo!”
Reviewed November 16, 2012

Downtown Rio and lets face it there isn't much to see down there but Cafe Columbo is and experience. Food isn't so special but it is still good. When you look at the architecture of the building, just think how thay managed to transport those gigantic mirrors from Europe over 100 years ago by sailing ship, totally intact. In the modern world they would struggle. Truly a feat of the old world and craftsmanship. You'll love it.
