In Ladeira da Barra, a charming café overlooking the All Saints Bay
Located on the French Alliance balcony at Barra, the charming Café Terrasse has a beautiful view. With a constant and pleasant breeze, the space serves breakfast, lunch and many options to try while admiring the magnificent All Saints Bay. Gastronomy and culture, a good combination. With this inspiration, the French Alliance gourmet space, in Ladeira da Barra, combines special grains, contemporary, simple and well cared menu, warm atmosphere with the charm of a friendly and welcoming service.
The aroma of selected grain coffee goes well with reading a good book that you can take from the bookcrossing shelf – a place where readers let their books free in public places to be found and read by others and, therefore, travel the world! Take this opportunity and let one of yours free. Whether it’s a French or Bahian menu, the program matches all hours of the day! In addition to the many cultural programs, on Fridays there is jazz and on Saturdays, chorinho. It’s good to stay tuned to the schedule. The café is a program for every day and for any occasion.
In the same building, Molière Theater was created in 2002 and totally restored in 2010 after gaining a certain fame in the cultural itinerary of Salvador city. Since the design of its project, the theater physical space preserves the property original architecture, which is more than 100 years old.
