    First I want to separate the "wheat from the chaff". The place is paradise, however, Brunch was not consistent. I don't know if I went with high expectations, but I was disappointed with the Brunch. I found a confusing, in that you've requested water, brought the loaves and after questioning the accompaniments (jellies, butter ...), reported that they had forgotten. There was no warmth expected by location and amount invested. Anyway, don't nominate and I won't be back for brunch.

    It's a visit that's well worth doing. In addition to the architecture of the House and the Park around it in your interior has a very interesting collection of brazilian history. The price to get in is fair and, depending on the day, you can still watch any musical presentation.

    I love getting to know new places, especially brunch by cities. The place itself [and amazing, has a beautiful space of nature where you can walk, have tb a small museum where a little histotia account of the family ... the House has a beautiful architecture. But the brunch left much to be desired, dry egg and few options for a place with all the visual and style.
