This is definitely my kind of place! It's an institution based in Centro Rio. The place just takes you back...waaaaay back! The decor is just amazing. Service was pretty good too. There was a long line when we arrived but it moved fast enough I suppose given how very long it was. The selection here is so big! I would say the quality is not the best but I think this place makes up for it in ambiance and variety. My mom ordered the afternoon tea special and she really loved how soft the bread was. We tried many things among the 4 of us, including the capirinha tart, passion fruit tart, Portuguese Belem tart, hazelnut tart, walnut tart, chocolate cake, and tiramisu. Everything wasn't bad I guess but the desserts here definitely look better than they taste. My favorite was actually the tiramisu. Stop by and treat yourself!
