Cafés and Snacks
Benjamin Abrahão Mundo dos Pães (Rua Maranhão 220, Higienópolis, tel. 11/3258-1855, www.benjaminabrahão.com.br, 6 a.m.–8:30 p.m. daily) is considered one of the best padarias (bakeries) in town. Delicious baked goods and over 50 varieties of bread emerge from its ovens daily. Their freshly made sandwiches are very tasty, as are the chipas—golf-ball-size baked dough stuffed with fillings such as guava jelly and white cheese with herbs.
