The quality of everything is average while the price are well above. The place is hideous and the service average.

One of the better places to have a decent coffee in Sao Paulo, they have a great selection of coffees and brews to meet anyone's palate. The service on the other hand needs some major improvements if you ask me, You wait almost a lifetime for your coffee, so if you think you want to go for a quick coffee... More

I had to attend an business meeting nearby and my wife had to wait me until I've finished! During her stay at octavio cafe she was not allowed to go to specific areas because they were restricted to executives. How do you classify a executive? By gender? By race? By clothes? I'm sorry to inform but this is racism!

The famous Octavio cafe is an important spot for business meetings in São Paulo. Near great business center and Faria Lima Avenude, Ovctavio offers a large sort of coffee, snacks, and meals, during all day long. Staff is very good and facilities are great!

No fresh orange juice, we are in Brazil... Slow service, all way to expensive compared to similar places in Sao Paulo. The food isn't worth any comment... I will not come back, and would not recommend it. The place lives from a few international and Brazilian executives working on Farias Lima

Went as a group of three. We ordered three cappuccinos, a cake (which was on the counter, so no need to prepare anything) and a French toast. It took a full 40 minutes to arrive, and that only after asking twice about our order. French toast took a further 10 minutes after that. Food and drinks were ok, nothing more.... More

Octavio Cafe is very centrally located and serves great coffee. It also sells all kinds of fresh coffee and coffee paraphernalia. I visited Octavio cafe on two occasions to catch up with friends and on both occasions had great service, some delicious coxhina as well as excellent coffee. At Octavio cafe they all sell local brazilian coffee in Nespresso style... More
