Knowing the city between a coffee and another
A beautiful sight, a phenomenal sunset, cultural stroll. Let’s go out for coffee
Coffee, for some, puts the thoughts in the axis and their day does not begin before it. For others, coffee is “a hug in a mug”, while for many it is an excuse to spend time together. Undeniably a good coffee has its place and so we prepared this script for you, who loves caffeine. We chose six cozy environments, outside the malls – an invitation to get to know the city and have a coffee between one walk and another.
We’ve prepared a perfect playlist for this experience. Listen now!

In the famous Bohemian neighborhood, freshly ground grains
In Rio Vermelho, next to the Casa de Iemanjá (Iemanjá’s House), the Pasta em Casa Grocery Store is located on the ground floor of the Italian restaurant. On the little tables on the street, ask for a warm cappuccino with a hazelnut border, or the traditional one, freshly ground coffee, which is delicious to speed you up on those rainy autumn evenings. To eat, how about an apple pie served with vanilla ice cream or a milk fudge cheesecake with almonds and salt flower? Everything is outrageously delicious.
