An excellent breakfast, lunch or afternoon break from the Tijuca norm, the Diminuta café also becomes a little hub of artistic endeavor at the weekends, with live shows starting from 8pm. Home as well to some intriguing exhibitions, its little touches like the home made olive oil infusions and friendly welcome that help you realise you are in the laidback heart of traditional Rio. In a similar fashion to the even smaller Bip Bip in Copacabana, the music takes over much of the space, but with the crowds spilling merrily out onto the street that's just fine too.
