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 had a very nice dinner at the Cafelier. The view and the decor are very nice. You should really taste their dessert.

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!

This is a nice place but you'd better make a reservation. We arrived without reservation and had to queue for more than 30min to have a table. You can't get in for a quick meal or coffee as I think a coffeebar should be. Though Coffee and drinks are good.
