Service was not very nice. They seem not so happy to be there. Quite expensive! But the design is cool, food was good. Beer is also not so bad. Go for a coffee, not for lunch or dinner.

Beautiful surroundings, very relaxed and a lovely place to have a glass of wine or a proper cup of tea. The owner is very hospitable.

A very nice place with good food options, nice music, books for reading. It's located at the very centre, near the main churches. Very cool.

The place is amazing. Nicely decorated, very comfy and cozy but I wasn't very happy with what I got. Ordered a combination of corn cakes but they seems to be industrialized but plated on their on dish. Tea wasn't very good - I believe it was served the Brazilian national brand Leao but named in a more chick way

I spent a wonderful morning on a comfy couch enjoying a good beer and some yummy soup as I waited out the rain in Ouro Preto. Loved it!

The place is wel designed with some nice couches. The food looks good and tastes even better. The staff is a bit slow but this makes the place, together with the good WiFi ideal for chilling out and check TripAdvisor to decide which of the churches you want to visit next.

Ouro Preto has a lovely café scene but café cultural stands out. You cannot beat its prominent location off Praca Tiradentes. The place is beatiful. We went on a Saturday afternoon and there was live bossa nova entertainment. The menu is diverse and the waiter spoke English. Plus, wifi is fast and free. Check it out!

Ouro Preto is a delicious old town and Café Cultural is a real shelter for gastronomy and Culture Lovers. You can buy very interesting books and have a coffee in the restaurant. Good homely food from Minas mixed with International Cuisine. The interior decoration is elegant, everything you need to have a great time with your friends! I strongly recommend... More
