Brazilian in Copacabana & Leme

Though it's just a short stroll from Copacabana's busiest thoroughfare, this little cafe (which shares space with a home-design store) maintains a peaceful air, particularly if you sit at one of the tables on the small plaza out front. Stop in for sandwiches, empanadas (heart of palm, chicken, or shrimp-filled pasties), desserts, juices and coffee.
