Average place. A bit pricey for coffee and cake and to be honest the cappuccino was pretty poor. Friendly enough staff but we came in out of the rain. If hadn't have rained we'd have missed it and not been all that sad about doing so!

We passed by this cafe several times on our way back to our hotel Porto Zarpa. One day we decided to try it. It was excellent. I tried the Mafalda salad with mango. It was delicious!!!! Their olive oil is the best I ever tried. My daughter had steak and loved it too. Great place!!!!

It's the chic place around here, the service depends on the attendant, the food is all very good, the price is high but if you're in vacation it's worth the extra " real".

Stayed for a quick stop today. We where there with our guide Fabiana. The cakes where all good and moist. Try the coconut/chocolate cake.fresh mango juice and nice espresso. We just had a quick stop but the service was fast and alright prices. 20 r for cake.

Wonderful oues of any kind of flavours. It is a good place to relax and taste some great dessert at the end of a day in the beach.

it is not a place for you to have traditional bahian dishes, although there are dishes with local flavors. But that is fine because there are loads of places with traditional menus, but this one is just the nicest / no-brainier / affordable / tastier that we found.

We ate "empanadas", which were too small for the price they costed, and not so tasteful as it should be for such a high value.

So-so service, nice outdoor seating with passing crowds. Lots of variety on the menu, decent sandwiches. Try the ice cream in an adjoining varanda = creamy with some good fruit flavors.

Awesome bakery, with just about the best chocolate croissant in the world, make sure to ask them to serve it hot!! The other doces and cakes are fab too! And the fresh baked bread simply heavenly! I skipped my breakfast in my hotel every day, just for Tango, that's how you start your day in Praia do Forte.
