Lunch at Cafe Colombo on 23 June 2006

Colombo Confectioners founded in 1894, this Confectioners is a landmark in ostentation, typical of Rio’s high society life between the end of the 19th century and the start of the 20th century. It still preserves the charm of those times in its Belgian crystal mirrors, in the straw backed chairs and in the rich engravings on wood panels. A “5 o’clock” tea is served there from Monday to Friday, from 5 to 7 pm. It is located on Rua Gonçalves Dias, 32/36, in the town centre. It is open from Monday to Friday, from 9 am to 8 pm, and on Saturdays, from 9 am to 5 pm.

Strongly recommended by a lot of traveller websites and tourismo, and also our colleagues, finally we went there for lunch. The 1st level serve as cafe and 2nd level as restaurant for lunch but it was not cheap. The lunch buffet cost almost BRL 50 each so next time I better go there for coffee and pastry only.
