Set up by Minas Gerais native Gelma Franco, this café was one of the city’s gourmet café pioneers when it opened in 2003. It has since spawned a further three locations, all of which serve the in-house line of coffee blends, including an organic option. Their famous, full-bodied espresso competes with other drinks such as the freddo limone (R$13), an iced cappuccino with lime-flavoured ice-cream. For filter coffee fans, the breakfast (R$5.30), served daily until 10am, is a good combo, with cake, and a baguette or panini.
