Confeitaria Colombo, Rio de Janeiro

Opened in 1894, Confeitaria Colombo is a Grand Cafe in the European style, selling typical Brazilian folgado, pastries and espresso at the counter with table service in the main hall. The walls are lined with an amazing collection of antique cocktail and champagne glasses and the bar lined with vintage spirits and aperitif bottles. A lively hub for tourists and locals alike, tucked down a side street in the bustling heart of old Rio.
