La Bicyclette

Cafe in Gávea, Jardim Botânico & Lagoa

La Bicyclette whips up creative sandwiches (named after Parisian neighborhoods), hearty quiches, salads and desserts. Vegetarians can opt for the Olympia, with goat cheese, olives, capers and cherry tomatoes. Bakery items are superb, and there's ample outdoor seating for a coffee break. It's located across from the headquarters of media giant Globo.
