The experience is nice but it would be great to have eggs benedict with english muffin as opposed to toast bread. It’s just not the same. Can’t find English muffins in Rio? Learn how to make them.

Hi and thanks so much for you feedback! And yes we have made English Muffins but we actually found that people preferred our homemade brioche toast for the Eggs Benedict vs the English Muffin. If demand grows for them we'll absolutely make them again.

Been to this place several times and its always good. The main point is you can find the little things here that you can't find anywhere else in Rio - like real cheddar cheese or a bagel, lox and cream cheese with capers or mac 'n cheese or a real ceasar salad or blueberry pancakes. And it all tastes good. Breakfast is served all day too. It's not real cheap but it is worth it. Most of the wait staff if not all speak English, and the menus are in English too. It's become a Sunday brunch kind of place for me - forgot to mention the eggs benedict. Highly recommended.

Made my order with my friend. Waited 45mins for food to be served. Then they brought out his food and they had forgot mine. Had to wait another 15mins while my friend finished their meal. No refund. no free drink. Just expensive prices for poor service.

Service was great and for even better. Not many places serve English type breakfast in the area so this is good.
