If strolling through stalls filled with homemade breads, cheeses, jams, wines is your idea of vacation, Casa Carandaí should not be missed. Very close to the Botanical Garden, this elegant place is more than a deli: it also functions as a bakery, a cafe, a winery and a rotisserie. Among plenty of European products such as wines and olive oil you also fin Brazilian artisanal premium cheeses, especially the ones from Serra da Canastra and Serrano. At the charming Café Carandaí, on weekends clients can enjoy a hearty buffet breakfast for a fixed price (ask for a pão na chapa, a Brazilian delicacy: grilled buttered bread). It also serves meals during the day, from salads to sandwiches.
