The Santo Grão Café celebrates the culture of coffee—a subject particularly close to the hearts of Brazilians—with the thoroughness of a true connoisseur.
Its large, airy, wood-lined interior provides the ideal setting for a long morning of newspaper reading and espresso drinking. The house blends are skilful and, if proper pampering is in order, the banana muffins are sinfully tasty.
A classy antique roasting machine sits behind the bar and a beautiful terrace, whose ambience of sophistication suggests the streets of Paris or Rome, extends through a doorway. The elegant shopping street Rua Oscar Freire provides world class people watching. Really, who could ask for anything more?
