Largo do Arouche , downtown São Paulo’s gay-friendly neighborhood, continues its rapid transformation into a tourist-friendly destination thanks to small businessmen like the owners of the newly opened RomeoRomeo Café.

In terms of food and drinks, RomeoRomeo offers the basics (like espresso, brigadeiro sweets, and chocolate chip cookies,) plus more extravagant treats (like slices of a gay pride-inspired rainbow layered cake, and a delightful savory creation with eggplant, cheese, and walnuts.) There are also several vegan alternatives on the menu.

RomeoRomeo Café is housed within a duplex storefront. Customers are welcome to grab a stool at the window or a table past the glass display of goodies. Up the café’s spiral staircase, visitors will find a small intimate environment with more seating.

Service is fast and friendly, especially from any of the handsome, bearish, baristas and co-owners.
