Fir a high price I expect that they have some lactose free alternatives, but not even milk for the coffee. Went to another place, half of the price and lots of alternatives.

Still one of the few options for a real brunch in Rio. Great food. Good staff. The place is a little bit old and deserves some renovation, but is ok. Bread is excellent. Price is above average. Good place for those wha can eat a lot :)

The bread is delicious....you don't realize that you're filling up because the bread is small, but it keeps coming! When they found out that one of our group was having a birthday, they provided a little sparkler and small cake for the occasion. The owner seems to really enjoy what she does.

An excellent alternative to the usual hotel breakfasts. Service is warm friendly and attentive -even though we couldn't speak Portuguese and waiters couldn't speak English , the language of a wonderful breakfast was universal ! Recommend to chose the set breakfast if it's your first visit - you get warm tasty cheese bread , chicken hot dogs , delightful bite... More

They do have a great breakfast buffet. It is probably the best in the area. Service was great. All Juices were fresh. Bread was amazing.

Great selection of bread, juice and typical countryside breakfast food. It's a very pleasant place, good service and good variety. You may need to set a reservation first because gets very crowded.

With a price like this (~US$40/person), one would expect top notch experience. However, we were sadly surprised that the food did not live up to even modest french culinary standards (or brazillian for that matter). Someone else said it: if you stay in a decent hotel, they probably have a better offering at their complimentary breakfast. Just an example: they... More

Escola do pão has the best breakfast in Rio. The place has an excellent service and the food is superb. The best choices are the cheese bread, mini sandwiches, "rabanada" and the basket of bread. You can have how much you can take so it will be like a breakfast/lunch. It is expensive but a very nice experience not to... More

The service is the best thing there. The food is only average and the ambience good but it is overpriced. There are many resturants in Rio where you can eat much better with the same amount of money.
