Confeitaria Colombo

Brazilian in Centro & Praça Mauá

Stained-glass windows, brocaded mirrors and marble countertops create a lavish setting for coffee or a meal here. Dating from the late 19th century, the Confeitaria Colombo serves desserts – including a good pastel de nata (custard tart) – befitting its elegant decor.

The restaurant above, Cristóvão, spreads an extensive buffet of Brazilian dishes for those wanting to further soak up the splendor.
