We had the worst service at a recent visit to Ernesto's. The service is always bad but this was the worst. Very exasperating Not only did it take a half hour to get our coffee, we had three different waiters, none of whom seemed to know what we had ordered. None of our group will be going back and I...

I don't like their coffee. Don't recommend it. But the place is cute, their cakes, tasty and their brownie& ice cream, wow. They also serve salad, sandwiches and pastries.

Nice place with a little book store at the mezzanine. The sandwiches, tapiocas, pies and artisan breads. But the star of the company are the coffees, espresso, macchiato, french press, you name it! I, sometimes, go there just for a espresso in the middle of the afternoon. If you don't like a crowd, you should avoid going there at the... More

One of the coziest coffees in Brasilia. Amazing variety of beans and with an boulangerie inside. Don't hesitate to ask the chocolate and coffee brioche!

A group of friends and I had Sunday brunch there. The coffee, the freshly squeezed orange juice, the quiches, the cakes, everything was perfect.

Nice people, nice place, good coffee! Home made coffee, cupcakes, breads, sweets, omelettes, everything very well done. Sunday morning breakfast is a relaxing and pleasure place for spending time in Brasília.

Sad there's no Starbucks in Brasilia? Dry your tears as Ernesto's has better coffee than the mega giant. The decor is chic and comfortable, the staff is super friendly and helpful in a multitude of languages and the omelettes and quiches are melt in your mouth good. This is one of those places where the food is consistently good and... More

I'm not a coffee drinker so I can't comment on the quality of the coffee, however the staff was very friendly and helpful. One other distinguishing element that Ernesto's offered was a pleasant patio to drink on and relax. The older-style decorative coffee grinder was also a nice touch in the front display.

Really love Ernesto Cafes. Nice atmosphere, friendly staff, fair prices. They could have a little more food options, but this is something I miss for going there too much. You won't regret visiting the place, for sure.
