Great place to have lunch and hang out. The wifi is turned off during the school holidays and the manager was a polite French man. The food is quite good and we had a great time visiting the rain forest after.

If you are in Rio, go to this place for brunch, as suggested here: http://www.tripadvisor.com/Guide-g303506-k559-Rio_de_Janeiro_State_of_Rio_de_Janeiro.html There are beautiful gardens and it's the trailhead for many trails to Sugar Loaf. It's not super cheap - but it's wonderful to sit and enjoy the mansion. There are great pictures to be had inside the building too. We weren't fortunate to see any... More

There is a small parking lot, but it accessible by public transportation. There is a main house with cozy coffee shop to have brunch. The squared building has a small... More

I originally came by this place to see the amazing mansion featured in Snoop Dogg and Pharell's music video "Beautiful". WOW this place is aboslutely beautiful and perfect with its natural scenery inside and outside the mansion. Inside the mansion, there's a lovely cafe that serves delicious brunch! You won't be disappointed. We were here for a few hours just... More

This park is situated quite close to the botanical gardens. It has a beautiful building that houses an art school and has a lovely restaurant where you can enjoy a cold drink or a meal. The park has few paths to explore. It is situated at the bottom of Christ the Redeemer, and there is a path to the top... More

Parque Lage is a beautiful park situated near the Botanical Gardens. In the middle of the park which is well worth visiting, there is the city's best contemporary art school. It's a great place fir a late afternoon drink, or even perhaps for some activity - an exhibition, a show, perhaps an opera or movie screening, a party.

Parque Lage is so ridiculously beautiful in person, and it is perhaps one of my favorite stops on my trip to Brazil so far! The area offers as much as you want from it...a beautiful building you're welcome to hang out in/around, a cafe/restaurant, forest area to explore, and even a hiking path up to Cristo Redentor. Admission is free... More

There is sort of a university cafe here and breakfast is to die for! Apparently there is a way to get to the Christ from the back of this restaurant but I'm not too sure
