Livraria da Travessa

Books in Ipanema & Leblon

One of several branches around town, this Livraria da Travessa has a small selection of foreign-language books and periodicals, and some CDs upstairs. The buzzing 2nd-floor cafe (a branch of Bazzar) serves salads, sandwiches, quiches and desserts. There's an even larger Livraria da Travessa inside the Shopping Leblon mall.
