  • 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.

  • Beautiful building and garden, but the brunch could be better. The breads could be fresher and better quality. It is missing more care with the food. People that goes there in general appreciate good food. As we are in São Paulo, and have very good suppliers from good and special food. It should be explored more for a so beautiful place.
  • Beautiful grounds brunch was a bit disappointing
  • Exhibition of beautiful works of art and much history to assimilate!
  • The architectonic relevant house transformed in museum with some beautiful peaces, with one downside, you cant take pictures inside the house. There's a really cozy cafe and a surprising park really worth visiting, and on selected Sundays they concerts. I recommend.
  • Very beautiful
