This cafe has a great view over the Salvador harbour. The cafe it self is very nice and they serve some very nice sweets.

We went to Cafelier for a drink with the recommendation of a friend and we throughly enjoyed the experience. So the following night we went to have dinner. The food was very good for a reasonable price. The elegant atmosphere was enriched with the artwork being sold there. The owner Paul is so kind to greet everyone in Brazilian hospitality.... More

I loved their creativity for making coffee. There are dozens of flavors which are tremendously delicious and still taste as coffee. 😻 arriving and parking are quite hard if you want to see the sunset from there, but you won't lose a thing arriving at about 3pm.

I was walking around Pelourinho with my family and we needed some rest, drink and food and we turned up at this amazing place. The coffee shop looks like a museum, antique fornitures, cups, glasses and it has a terrace with a wonderful view. The food was good, not expensive and the staff friendly. I recommend it very much!

This is a nice place but you'd better make a reservation. We arrived without reservation and had to queue for more than 30min to have a table. You can't get in for a quick meal or coffee as I think a coffeebar should be. Though Coffee and drinks are good.

The place is small and nicely decorated. They also have a nice view from the terrace, which means that tables with a view are popular. When I came, there was one such table available, but I was told because I was by myself I could not sit there. A couple came after me, sashayed there and no problem. Everything except... More
