In downtown Rio there is a bakery called Confeiteria Colombo, established in 1894, it is famous for its Brazilian style french toast, pastries and gorgeous dining room. Stop by in the afternoon to avoid the rush hour downtown order a drink and a pastry and enjoy the live Bossa Nova on the piano.
This jewel of downtown Rio takes you back in time and makes you wistful for a bygone era. Its one of those places, full of customers and bustling waiters but, your table feels so private you seem to be looking from the outside in. Enjoy!
