Alegria, Padaria Brasileira / CLOSED DOWN2
Why locals love it
The atmosphere of this bakery matches the name: cheerfulness. The colors are bright and the attendants smiley. The owner made a good choice, leaving a stressful job to get into this business. Difficult to choose an option from the yummy menu.
Why you should visit it
This small place is essentially Brazilian and the bread, cakes and other sweets are scrumptious. At lunch time, a buffet is served upstairs. Easy to get there, between Brigadeiro and Paraíso subway stations, among many other interesting attractions.
Try “surpresinha”, a delicious cheese cake with creamy guava.
