If you want true old-world elegance in a restaurant, you’ll want to visit Confeitaria Colombo on your trip to Rio. This restaurant has a rich history, with its original Belle Époque tearoom having opened in 1894. Its art nouveau elegance still radiates throughout the restaurant. This cafe / restaurant offers full meals and alcohol. However, the thing that attracts the most attention are their rich desserts. Any conceivable kind of pastry is on their menu. Stop for lunch, dessert or just for an afternoon espresso.
