Incredible multi-course brunch is a great way to start the day on a Sat or Sun. Our best memory of Rio.

Excellent cuisine of irreproachable quality and impeccable service between Lagoa Rodrigo de Freitas and the Botanical Garden (Jardim Botânico neighbourhood). The breakfast and the brunch on weekends are superbs too, as their bread is considered the best in town. They fail in lighting (could be better with indirect light; that would make the atmosphere cozier and more intimate).

it is a nice place where to have an above average brunch....everything is of good quality (although not extraordinary).the jam is homemade and we loved it....sandwiches amazing! unfortunately they serve a poor quality coffee and a really miserable chocolate (nescau) this is unacepptable in a place like this that charges a lot. overall the service was good but not impeccable: we had lot of trouble with the garcons because we had to continuosly ask to replenish our cup of coffee: in a place like that you expect the waiter to CONTINUOSLY go around the tables to refill coffee (that should be hot.....yes it was not hot)

it is hard to say if i would reccomend it or not:
they serve good quality food, it s an experience...
still for less than what they charge you can have afternoon tea with glass of champagne @ the ritz in London....

so it´s really up tp you if going or not....

The weekend brunch here is just amazing.

The owner clearly loves both food and her diners. It's a joy just to watch her!

She serves up a cornucopia of delights from great sweet pastries, breads to some of the best scrambled eggs I've every had.

The price is a bit more than we expected, but it was really worth it.
