  • Fantastic place inside of São Paulo. The brunch is expensive, but it’s worth every cent. The place was the former house of an entrepreneur, converted in a brunch place, art gallery and park. It’s nice to take a walk, eat, take another walk, eat again (repeat). You can park your ride inside the park, no need to worry about that.
  • Little architecture gem hidden in Morumbi. The gardens are very soothing and mash well with the buildings. The cafe is expensive but with very tasty deserts (the apple pie is delicious!).
