“Keeps getting worse....”
Reviewed August 18, 2013

Suplicy has always benefitted from it's location in upscale Jardins, amongst people who frequently mistake attitude for quality. São Paulo doesn't have a long-standing coffee house tradition, meaning that people didn't have much of a reference point to allow them to judge Suplicy's coffee on it's own merits. This coffee is terrible. Every espresso that I have had over too many visits (free WiFI) has been sour, thin and lacking in even a modest crema. The place itself is increasingly crowded and raggedy looking and they have now added the tacky call buttons at each table that I associate with the Fran's coffeehouse chain.

As an American who frequently visits São Paulo, I have had to resort to the large number of Starbucks that are popping up in São Paulo like boils. And I HATE Starbucks; but not as much as I hate Suplicy!

“Sunday brunch”
Reviewed November 18, 2012

The coffee may be good, but the "pay first eat later" system allied to "take it or leave it" attitude of the staff, who cannot be bothered to serve the tables but prefer to stay behind the counter, make this only a notch above a MacDonalds. Don't bother Les Pain Quotiden or Santo Grão are light years better.

“Good place for an afternoon coffee”
Reviewed September 16, 2012 via mobile

Nice environment, relaxing place to enjoy a good coffee and eat a dessert on the afternoon. The service is reasonably fast, the air conditioning is strong and there is no rush. I wish there were more tables with couches in the back: there is strong competition for the only one!
