The confeitaria in the Forte de Copacabana has one of the most impressive views in the city, i recommend it even for just coffee or a caipirinha!!! I've gone for breakfast and lunch and both are really good :)

I can't remember what the food was like, but just being in Rio's Cafe Colombo is a great experience. One of the greatest places I have ever been. With a little imagination you can see yourself sitting there a century ago, amongst the grands-seigneurs of the era, the well-to-do. The space, the mirrors, the woodwork ... cafe Colombo is a sort of time capsule. Go there.

(The form of this page forces me to pick a month of the last year for my visit, but I visited the place years and years ago. I suppose it's still the same. Some things should never change.)

It is for sure one of the best candy shop that I have ever been!! I went there to a wedding, but one week later i went again. The wedding's service was amazing, the food was awesome. The place is like you're in a "belle-époque" movie. The Colombo has an classic air. Every time i go to Rio, i go there. It's a classic and obligatory stop!

You have to go to this place while in Rio, specially for the one in Downton Rio. Don't expect amazing food, only simple and overpriced one (but good) in one og the most beautiful rooms of Brazil.

Going to the confeitaria Colombo is stepping back in time to one of the city's best cafes during the belle- époque. This was one of the places to first show movies in the city and used to be the hang out for Rio's bohemian writers and artists. It's architecture is still in tact and is absolutely beautiful. You can stand at the cafe in the front and order petiscos - snacks like cod balls - or sit down for a lunch or afternoon tea in the elegant restaurant inside. It's a classic and is stunning! An absolute must for Rio!
