The meeting place of writers and cartoonists (as well as all sorts of creative thinkers), it’s just simple and great. Always full, people enjoy it for breakfast, lunch, happy hour and events. It may take some time to get a table, but you can shop books, enjoy some beer and small food on the sidewalk while you wait - it’s, actually, part of the fun.
Besides always having good Brazilian food and cold beer, they also serve the famous “pastel” - and it’s a must try! Don’t bother ordering, once they have a new fresh batch coming from the kitchen the friendly waiters will walk around the tables offering them. An experience from the beginning to the end.
As many books are released there, try to make it in an autographs night. Fun and great talks guaranteed.
