Got a couple of really yummy ice creams. Unfortunately the staff was either distracted or uninterested. Took a while to get a table and tried to call them to order and even though they didn't look that busy, took a while.

In my opinion Banca 40 is not good at all. First, the atmosphere - the smell and loudness of public market are not exactly what I prefer. I ordered a dessert called Bomba Royal, 10,90 R$, which consists of ice cream, whipped cream and fruits.

The place is in the Central Market for more that 60 years. The locally made ice cream is incredible, no artificial incredients, made with pure cream. The market is worth seeing and after a time for this delight.

It is in downtown market, a traditional place where still today you can have wonderful choices of Brazilian and imported foods at banca 51. The banca 40 is specialized in ice-cream, creams, and fruit salad. You can seat and ask for a choice of salad fruit with cream, ice-cream or both. It is the best I eat in my life.... More
