You have all the perks of being in a central area combined with the neighborhood life style, conferred by small familiar business.
The Croissants at Careca café in Avenida das Forças Armadas. They are a must try!
Jardim do Campo Grande is a true delight. You can rent a boat on the central lake and enjoy the garden from a different perspective.
Although this is a busy neighborhood during rush hours, the rest of the day and weekends are quite calm. You will start recognizing all the familiar faces after a while.
