Top choice mineira in Belo Horizonte

Run by the affable Dona Nelsa, this long-standing local institution 15km northwest of Belo Horizonte is renowned for its fabulous comida mineira (typical Mineira cuisine). Everything is served at picnic tables under a thatched roof, with children’s entertainment and hammocks close at hand for post-meal relaxation. The traditional wood stove blazes up front, while colorful desserts are attractively displayed in two long cases.
