Excellent food, great atmosphere and good prices. Jazz and books, a good option for couples, families or a lone coffee.

there is another cafe com letras beneath the cultural banco do Brasil building in Praca da Liberdade, although i'm not sure if that one also serves dinner. Both have a great atmosphere, coffee and food, although they are a little on the expensive side. come early to get a table over the weekend.

I've been a coupe of times here over the past 2 years. The place is really nice inside. However the food, which why you usually go to a resaturant, has been all the times just average ... I also found it disturbing once a very loud DJ set that did not let us have a conversation in our table. I... More

It is a cool athmosphere for a light meal and a cocktail or a glass of wine. The salad was ok , good wine. The service was quick. Although they say that there is free wifi, I couldn´t connect it. It seems that only work for android or apple phones, but not for windows mobile. So unfortunally I couldn´t stay... More

Food is great. I've had a great fillet. Opening hours are great, they do serve lunch and late dinner. Inside saloon is not very spacious though.

Café com Letras has very unique ambiance. It is a funky mixture of bookstore, bar, restaurant, live music and DJ etc. Age range is pretty wide, which adds its own flavor to place. The Music is always very cool in Café com Letras; live music in some nights like excellent Jazz bands, other nights can be DJ evenings with hip-hop,... More

Café com Letras is a very nice spot in Belo Horizonte. It's a cafe/bookstore with a nice ambiance and good food at a fair price. Go on Sunday nights for jazz sessions. Really nice! The place also promotes every year a Jazz Festival with local and international jazz performers. Mandatory for jazz lovers!

What a great place! It's a small, casual book store/cafe. They have music playing and tables spilling out on to the sidewalk. The food is good and varied. They even have a homemade vegan burger, which is actually very, very good. They serve good wines at a reasonable price. The atmosphere is what makes this place, though. We didn't arrive... More
