Maria Brigadeiro information
Lonely Planet review
The place to come for brigadeiro (chocolate bonbons of condensed milk, butter and chocolate powder), served in sweet-tooth-satiating gourmet versions like pistachio, doce de leite with walnuts and cachaça (sugarcane alcohol). The adorable workshop, Brazil's first atelier dedicated to its most iconic sweet, serves espresso for those eating in, but it's a zoo of take-away chocolate ecstasy.
It's just a block away from Metrô Oscar Freire, 'scheduled' to open in 2013.
