Rua Sete de Setembro, 137 - Centro, Rio de Janeiro - RJ, Brasil
NileGuide Expert tip:
It can be difficult to find a decent toilet in downtown Rio, but Casa Cave's restrooms are clean and usually queue-free!
An antique coffee store at the heart of Rio's chaotic downtown shopping strip, Casa Cavé is a great place to kick back and relax during a shopping or sightseeing tour of downtown. The building dates back to 860 and retains plenty of historic charm, with lace tablecloths and black and white photographs of Rio in bygone days. The service is good and prices are very fair, with wonderfully ornate cakes and pastries tasting every bit as good as they look.
