“Great place for a snack and a beer”
Reviewed August 26, 2013

We were told about this small cafe/bar in Santa Teresa by the guide we had for a Tijuca forest trip. They had a great selection of sandwiches and beers and pretty good coffee, all served in an outdoor terrace that overlooks the street below. Great ambience, people watching and even birds if you are so inclined (I spotted both Columbina doves and Aratinga parrots sitting there). We had some quick ciabatta sandwiches, which were excellent and served with a garlicky chimichurri. And if you're nervous about your Portuguese skills, don't worry about it. The menu is in English and Portuguese and the servers have good-fluent English. They can also point you in the right direction for buses or other directions should you need them. Definitely worth a visit it when you're in Rio.

“Great Setting”
Reviewed August 8, 2013

Lovely ambience, pretty terrace perfect for a beer or two, good service. Didn't eat here but was a lovely spot for a few drinks; good spot to relax and people watch on the streets of St Teresa below.

“Amazing setting”
Reviewed August 8, 2013

I loved this place, it felt like being in a treehouse! The food was really good, and we enjoyed sitting on the quirky terrace under the trees. (until it started to rain and we went inside - equally nice in there too though!) Definitely worth a visit.

“Sit on the terrace and let time slip by.”
Reviewed June 26, 2013

I loved the elevated terrace of Cafecito. You could find a quiet table or look out over the street and enjoy a meal at your own leisure.

A bit pricey but well-worth an evening of your time.
