The oldest coffee shop in the city, Casa Cavé is a haven of calm amid the chaos that is downtown Rio. Stepping inside the regal building, which dates back to 1860, is like taking a step back in time. Chandeliers hang from the high ceilings, lace tablecloths adorn the tables, and waiters serve deliciously decadent cakes, pastries and assorted sweet and savory treats alongside steaming pots of coffee and tea. The delicious sandwiches, soups and of course, cakes are a draw in themselves, and the genteel ambiance makes Casa Cavé the perfect place to relax and unwind after a hard day's shopping or sightseeing.
