Excellent place to have a drink or coffee on visiting the country. It`s one of the most antique Patisserie (Candy Store) in town and it was founded in 1894. The site US Guide has elected this Bakery as one of the 10 most beautiful coffee stores in the world. On visiting Rio, make a stop at least for admiring the... More

The Confeitaria isn't the cheapest place to eat in the centre of Rio, but it's one of the greatest - a stupendous restaurant, architecturally, which dates back to the 1890s. I've been coming here for 10 years, on and off, and it's never disappointed... but you need to be armed with a few facts before you arrive. Firstly, do not... More

It is a beautiful building, nothing more nothing less. If you want something nice, a great experience - go to Forte de Copacabana. You will be amazed by the ocean view and the great service.

Beautiful building, amazing cakes and tasty coffee. We were lucky enough to be seated quickly but the queues show how popular and good this traditional cafe is. A must do stop in Rio for foodies.

Staying in Centro

Neighbourhood Profile
Centro
Downtown Rio is the place where this city was born. With modern skyscrapers sharing space with historical buildings and landmarks, this neighbourhood is living proof that the old and the new can live together harmoniously. As you would expect, downtown is where all major companies house their offices. However, the region isn’t restricted to businesses. Gems such like the “Paço Imperial,” which is a cultural centre that used to serve as a residence for governors of Brazil, can be found here. Pedra do Sal, a Monday night street party, is also in this neighbourhood. This landmark is the birthplace of samba and is famous for its “roda de sambas” (“dance circles”). Stop in for one and get closer to discovering where Brazilian happiness comes from.
