  • A House beautiful, full of history and elegance, surrounded by a leafy Park, very nice to walk. The collection of works of art, furniture, dishes and objects from the imperial era is great! Di Cavalcanti, Lasar Segall, Guinhard Brecheret, Clovis Gratian and so on. Ride of a lifetime in Sao Paulo for only $10!

  • We were looking for a different place in São Paulo and found this amazing place. We had brunch first and we try for tea complete (menu) is a great option, we thought we'd be hungry but actually we can't eat everything, the pieces on display are well preserved, historic and worth the visit!

  • The place has a beautiful garden and is very nice for a cup of tea. I was a Sunday afternoon at 2:30 pm and opted for the a la carte. At that time I was very quiet.
