Cafe in Ipanema & Leblon

This tiny cafe has a loyal local following for its excellent coffees, all-organic fare and decent vegetarian and vegan dishes – not to mention the friendly welcome. Try a tapioca with goat cheese and pesto (they're made with beet, so they're pink!) or for something more filling, opt for a tartine (open-faced sandwich), heart-of-palm ravioli or the day's changing special (like falafel with tahini).

There's also kombucha and green juice – a favorite with the health-conscious Zona Sul crowd.
