“I didn't eat anything--but the decor is amazing”
Reviewed October 14, 2013

I wanted to see this famous confeitaria. It is very stunning and there was a very long line to get seated on the first floor. This was around 4:30-5:00, which would have been tea time. We went up to the second floor as well which was nearly empty--they had a special buffet for 50 reais per person. It is worth it just to see the place even if you don't eat there. The food looked scrumptious.

“Traditional place to see in the centre of Rio”
Reviewed September 27, 2013

Confetaria Colombo is an amazing and inspiring place, the interior of the this well known coffee house was kept original. Unfortunately the quality of food, sweets and coffee did not meet our expectations. We loved a live piano music.

“Old school charm..”
Reviewed September 16, 2013

Beautiful old cafe with numerous cakes and sweets. We had lunch here, reasonably easy to find. Spectacular old furnishing including, massive period mirrors, which oozes old school extravagance. Wait and front of staff are friendly. Try and avoid the crowds by going before lunch or late afternoon. Worth visiting. Recommended. We found the food to be high quality and were very full upon leaving..
