The place has really a nice atmosphere and the staff is very efficient. When you first get there, you cannot imagine that they can have such a great food in a kind of second hand book shop cafe but you'll gonna have a great experience. I went for the "Costa do Sol" prawn orange risotto with salmon! Really great choice!... More

I was surprised by the place being a mix of library and restaurant. Very casual and great place to kick back and enjoy a good meal.

We were attracted by this small bookstore/restaurant located almost in the front of Canela's cathedral. Menu was very criative, with lighter choices. Deserts are excellent. If you want only a quick bite, they have sandwiches and soups. I had the brown rice risotto and my husband had the entrecote with a green salad. Both excellent!

Walking the streets of Canela can seem like a visit to a shopping mall - not too much to see except retail premises. There IS a striking 1950s cathedral at the top of the hill, the Catedral de Pedra, which is worth a look. Just down the main shopping thoroughfare, on the Rua Felisberto Soares, you find the Emporio Canela.... More

The food and the staff were great. I had the Magnolia File, a filet mignon, accompanied by an apple and gorgonzola risotto. Delicious. We were in a group of ten and the service was efficient and attentive, and everyone of us lived their food. The bazaar includes some great LP finds, a range of books new and previously loved, and...
