This historic pastry shop is full of art, like the ceramic panel with polychrome tiles by Querubim Lapa, a mural painting by João Câmara Leme, and other works by Mário Costa. When it was founded in 1946, Mexicana was a confectionary and dairy, serving as a meeting spot for various artists connected to Surrealism and Neorealism. Besides being a cafe (at teatime, ask for scones, and pancakes with jam), it is also a snack bar and a restaurant with a banquet hall.
