So I'm walking down the street with my family and I stop for a Tapioca. My son, orders a ham and cheese one, while I stick to the original coconut and cheese. The Tapioca was perfect. Right size, enough filling and an honest price. If you don't know what Tapioca is, try one. It is Manioc starch (goma), which when... More

Very tasty tapioca's. Especially the one with minced meat and the one with goiabada jam. However, the portions are noticeably smaller than in Café da Moeda. If I had to make a choice I would go to the latter one.

My friends and I got some sweet and savoury pancakes. The service was cheerful and the pancakes Delish! If you have a sweet tooth go for to coco and sweetened condensed milk

Good taste, authentic tapioca. Can be a cheap dinner in the street. The coffee is cheap but already have sugar.

Not really a restaurant: just a counter from where you can get the food. Service is fine, but not 100% efficient. The tapioca is fine, but if you have in mind tapioca from Alto da Se in Olinda, there is no competition. So, good, but not unmissable.

The place is very small but the owner was very friendly and very welcoming. We ordered a cheese and calabreza tapioca and it was very taste!! Tastes much better than the ones we have in the hotels. You should try at least once. Try the coconut with condensed milk as well - you will love it!!! Can't wait to go... More

One of the specialties of the northeast region of Brazil, the tapioca "wrap" was certainly something different! Chewy consistency (especially with melted cheese inside) and nice and light for a snack in between meals at the beach. Just make sure you get there before the queue gets too long!

Delicious, quick, nutritious (relatively) cheap, that's tapioca for you. We liked the frango com queijo (chicken and cheese), carne do sol, and for dessert the banana and cinnamon. Bom apetite!

The tapioca was like mochi consistency and didn't taste bad with three filling we added (cheese, coconut and condense milk). We waited for about 30 minutes after we paid. Don't be fooled by lack of people standing around...you'll notice that people would order and sit elsewhere while they wait. It is not fast food!
