“Cafe Ipanema - Great coffee”
Reviewed April 23, 2013

In May 2010 I visited Cafe Ipanema in Rio - the cafe featured with the bikini-clad girl those many years ago in the 1950/60's. The walls are adorned with copies of the magazine featuring this sexy woman. Just to sit and absorb the ambience of the cafe whilst sipping a coffee and watching the crowds go by was fantastic. The staff are efficient and understand your very needs. Great coffee - is what you would expect from such a huge coffee exporter such as Brazil and that's what you get!

“coffee lovers”
Reviewed March 14, 2013

As i am real coffee lover i have been searching for nice cup of coffee trough all rio. Brasil is very famous for exporting A class coffee but wondering trough Rio de Janeiro did not give me that impression mostly because all restaurants serve something that in most of the countries, real coffee lovers, don't even want to try drinking. This place have closest quality that i'm used to drink so I have to give a review for that. It is strong, good looking, in a nice neighborhood and for me good start of a morning before going to Ipanema beach. I have seen that they serve good breakfast but with a lack of needed smile even if it is morning. Toilet is out of work so bring some wet napkins.

“great bakery”
Reviewed February 17, 2013

This place is conveniently located a few blocks from Ipanema beach and the food is great! The eggplant sandwich was so fresh and tasty and they bring fresh baked bread-- ask for foccacia bread and they bring it hot and tasty! Price is reasonable...

“Nice Range of Options”
Reviewed January 27, 2013

We ate at this restaurant on two separate trips to Brasil in late 2012 and found it provided an good variety for breakfast. Still relying on the standard ham,cheese and WHITE bread (@*&!), we were also able to order eggs which was a welcome change in Brasil. The servers were not terribly friendly on either occasion we were there, but knowing how little motivation such occupations provide in this country makes it somewhat understandable.
Overall a good breakfast at a reasonable price (for Ipanema).
