Fodor's Review

Coffee culture is beginning to take off in Rio, and Argentine-owned Cafecito is one of just a few places so far to capture the essence of "café society." A leafy terrace overlooking Santa Teresa's main eating, drinking, and shopping strip provides a relaxed setting for brunches, lunches, and early-evening nibbles and cocktails. Chef Felipe Alves has previously worked at Copacabana Palace, and the dishes here are immaculately presented. The knickknack-strewn café serves what's arguably the city's best cappuccino—with a dusting of cinnamon and a morsel of gooey chocolate brownie—but the food menu also has plenty to recommend it. The standouts include the toasted ciabatta sandwiches (the Brie with artichoke hearts is delicious) and some pleasingly rustic baked mushrooms with melted Gorgonzola.
