  • Of course you're gonna pay a bit more it sit inside and enjoy such splendid architecture and historical building design. I mean just to see yourself reflected in those MASSIVE mirrors is worth the price of a coffee.

  • Amazing place! Could be a little more conserved, but it is beautiful anyway. Little pricey too for the food. But worth the experience.

  • This place is a must-go if you're visiting Brazil! The interior decor is a spectacular sight and the delicate pastries just add to the experience. There's usually a line after 10AM but the staff works fast and service is swift, which is always appreciated. There are a variety of traditional savory and sweet pastries and cakes and they all look delectable, you'll literally want to try everything you see. There's also an extended menu for what looked like the Portuguese version of high tea and other crepes/sandwiches/more filling selections. The sweet pastries themselves are very very rich and sweet but you can't go wrong by pairing them with some coffee or espresso. This place is definitely pricier for Rio but well worth the experience if you come with good company or even just a good read.

  • Like travelling through time to a different era filled with the most wonderful sweet delights!

  • If you are traveling to Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, do yourself a favor and stop in to the Confeitaria Colombo for an afternoon pastry and espresso. It is simply one of the most beautiful coffee shops in the world. Established in 1894 (with updated kitchen and plumbing, of course) it is mostly intact from when it first opened. It is a true delight for the senses. The desserts are delectable, the coffee is wonderful, and the atmosphere takes you back to a more luxurious, refined and upscale turn-of-the-century time. It is a true testament to the heyday of Brazilian culture and European influence. It's a not-to-be-missed Carioca destination. You will be thoroughly delighted!
