With really gorgeous deco and setting, this is a Salvador main stay. Unfortunately the food is average and not super cheap.This place culinary wise is average but the extra points go to the deco and setting. Great Caipirinhas though!

Very relaxing, just outside the center. We stayed there the whole afternoon and evening. Had several drinks and someting to eat (only light dishes) and paid for 3 persons about 50 USD. They don't speak english, but that is no problem at all and just improves the whole experience.

This café is a finding in Sto. Antonio. The ambiance is a relaxed, the old style adds a charm to it and the view is an amazing one! Both food and services are good! Price is unexpensive for places of the kind! Will return!

The view over the Baia do Todos os Santos is amazing from this restaurant, especially at sunset. I really enjoyed my meal there, a fresh white fish served with perfectly cooked and seasoned vegetables. The white wine by the glass was generously poured and the chocolate brownie was good - although the vanilla ice cream was more like a sorbet... More

We went to Cafelier for a drink with the recommendation of a friend and we throughly enjoyed the experience. So the following night we went to have dinner. The food was very good for a reasonable price. The elegant atmosphere was enriched with the artwork being sold there. The owner Paul is so kind to greet everyone in Brazilian hospitality.... More

I loved their creativity for making coffee. There are dozens of flavors which are tremendously delicious and still taste as coffee. 😻 arriving and parking are quite hard if you want to see the sunset from there, but you won't lose a thing arriving at about 3pm.

I was walking around Pelourinho with my family and we needed some rest, drink and food and we turned up at this amazing place. The coffee shop looks like a museum, antique fornitures, cups, glasses and it has a terrace with a wonderful view. The food was good, not expensive and the staff friendly. I recommend it very much!
