An accidental find, we enjoyed excellent coffee and service. Our seat right on the street gave us an perfect place to watch the people of Sao Paulo walk by. Go inside and look at the enormous coffee roaster!

It looks like a mix of Paris in the front and coffee factory in the back. Exclusively nice people mostly women. Prices are high but if you are a real amateur of rare coffees, this is the place. The rest is show off. But who cares?

The main course was amazing of a duo of tartar and the sticky toffee pudding is second to none. Also the coffee... More

We go to Santo Grao two or three times a month. Here you can have good sandwiches, great coffee and outstanding smoothies. Prices are moderate, and because it's always crowded, service can be spotty' However, if you're not in a rush, this is a great place to stop.

Neighbourhood Profile
Jardins
Located just below important Paulista Avenue, Jardins is the junction of four smaller neighbourhoods: Jardim Paulista, Jardim América, Jardim Europa and Jardim Paulistano. It is an upper-class area, offering a variety of things to do, including shopping, museums and parks. The neighbourhood is well known for “Oscar Freire”– the most luxurious street in the city, packed with high-end boutiques. In Jardins you will also find a trendy museum, São Paulo Museum of Image and Sound (MIS), which people often line up for hours to visit. If green space is what you're after, take time to relax at Trianon Park, a refuge in the heart of Paulista Avenue.
