A cafe worth taking time to visit even if it's out of the way. I went with group of friends and tried several different pastries and cakes along with coffee. Loved most of them and is ideally located in great neighborhood.

As long as I remember, here is the best "patisserie" in Rio. The founder passed but his descendants kept the business and the quality. Very fine deserts.

I go there frequently, either to have a coffee and eat one of the delicious cakes, or to buy a special dessert to take home.

Dear readers, even in Viena I did not find so many delicious Austrian/British style pies and sweet biscuits. Many of their pastries have been granted prizes. Kurt was founded by a creative Austrian chef, and is now owned by his niece, who keeps up with tradition. Nobody can say that has not found some delicacy that pleases him/her if he/she... More

This small family run Cafeshop is located in the charmming Leblon neighborhood and very close to the new metro Station Antero de Quental at L4. The récipes are based in german culture. I strongly recommend the "picada de abelha" and the apple pies. Spresso is also very good. Can't miss it!

I have been going to this place since I was a child. The Picada de Abelha is simply the best pie I've had! Amazing.

One of the best patisserie in Rio de Janeiro!! Don't miss it. The service is something ! The attendant's many times know the names of the customers....e all this make us feel the place like our home. And the address is awesome! and now that the Leblon Station subway is open is much more easier to get there.

"Kurt" has been there for ages and always impeccable! Whenever strolling along Leblon quarter in Rio's affluent Zona Sul, stop at "Kurt" for some expressos, tea and, of course, sweets! "Kurt" stands among the best patisseries in Rio de Janeiro - a tradition with a strong and more than welcome Austrian accent!. Delivery is available (at a small fee) and... More

An ideal place to stop for coffee, tea and pastries. The staff are friendly and patient, and even managed to produce a chest of Twining's English tea for us. Sweet cakes and pastries are their speciality, though you may want to try elsewhere if looking for savoury options.

Established decades ago by an immigrant Viennese Jewish pastry chef, Kurt is one of the best, if not the best, patissières in town. At one time, the late patriarch (and namesake of the store) was famous for refusing to sell sodas as they "interefered with the taste" of his sweet creations. I suggest the airy, delicate Bienestich (sponge cake with... More
