Day trippers to Parque da Cantareira should keep their eyes peeled for this bar-cum-deli delight – the perfect pitstop for refreshments in the middle of one of the biggest urban forests in the world. Owner Miriam quit her job in the paulistano ratrace to set up the place five years ago, and now serves platters of cheese, cold cuts and homemade pasta dishes with all manner of liquid gratification from the bar, which is surprisingly well stocked given its remote location. Barrels of locally distilled artisanal cachaça in fruity flavours line up next to wooden racks of wine and shelves stacked with a range of award-winning Colorado beers from Riberão Preto. If you’re lucky, you might catch the once-a-month samba show.
