Lovely and sweet cafe
Why locals love it
Empório Jardim Cafe, Deli and Bistro is quite a new cafe but it has already won everyone's heart. It's perfect for a late breakfast or for grabbing lunch after visiting Parque Lage, the Botanic Garden Lagoa Rodrigo de Freitas.
Why you should visit it
It may be a little pricey but is worth the visit. The staff is very friendly, the owner is always around greeting everyone. And the food is really-really good. I've been there for breakfast, lunch and just coffee with friends and it has never disappointed me. If you want to eat at home you can just buy their bread, jam and cookies to take away!
For breakfast try the fig butter and the gruyere Pão de Queijo, it's a Brazilian traditional cheese bread and their's is amazing!
