Lots of little shops, boutiques and great local food like pão de queijo (typical cheese rolls), coffee shops and beer. Side walk tables are common and a great way to people watch. Live music in some places. Nice to walk around.

It all started because of a bakery. In the 30's, the italian Amilcare Savassi set the name of his business after his surname. Over time, people came to designate the square Praça Diogo de Vasconcelos by the name of the bakery (Savassi Square) and through the years the area around the famous business earned this designation.
