The Confeitaria Colombo is a great place with long tradition. Established in 1894 this elegant Grand Café in the heart of Rio, in Rio’s city center and old town, has splendid decor on the ceiling and on the wall, combined with art from the old days and lots of antiquities referring to the widely beloved Leopoldina, the Habsburg princess and later Empress of Brazil (also known as Maria Leopoldine of Austria born in 1797 in Vienna and died in 1826 in Quinta da Boa Vista, Rio de Janeiro).
This grandeur full of gold, silver and glamor, makes this place so special giving your stay in Rio very much of a grandezza note of elegance and style. The desserts are marvelous for the looks and for the taste. By the way I had a brigadeiro, this very special Brazilian dessert full of chocolate and covered in chocolate, but there are so many fancy pastries here at the Confeitaria Colombo to choose from.
But see for yourself:
