“Fine but overrated”
Reviewed September 6, 2013

I don't really see why this place has such overwhelmingly positive reviews. Nothing against it, it's good enough, but it's not great and certainly not fantastic. I had a prawn pastel and a banana and apple juice, both were tasty (though contrary to some reviews stating the food is incredibly healthy, the pastel was anything other than healthy, as you'd expect of a pastry snack full of cheese) and service pleasant, prices were reasonable. It was not even close to the best eating experiences I've had in Rio though! Come on people, Rio's got better to offer - culture and foodwise - than this!

“Great juices and food!”
Reviewed September 3, 2013

Great place for a quick bite (their pasteis are great!), they have a huge juice selection. Either eat right there or take it "to go" and eat at the beach only 2 blocks away!

“The essense of Rio's culture”
Reviewed August 14, 2013 via mobile

BB lanches is a staple of Rio de Janeiro culture. The fact that the food is amazing is irrelevant. The fact that service is awesome, with Marconi on the lead, is also off the point. The fact that it is healthy and tastes really good is not key either. The atmosphere, of seeing barefoot surfers meeting their suit and tie bussinessmen buddies, meeting Brazilian TV stars, meeting models and wanna be models, meeting simple beachgoers, while standing up and eating a quick meal that takes hours due to chatting, is PRICELESS. This place is the face of Rio. Mandatory to understand Cariocas, and Brazil as a whole, over a simple meal.

“The best corner snack in Leblon!”
Reviewed June 25, 2013

Incredible amount of fresh fruit juices and very good quick snacks to go along. Clean, fast and efficient service. Forget tables, it's a typical stand-up boteco from Rio!
