More than a bakery, The Slow Bakery claims, as its name implies, an art of living and return to essential values of life. Here, nothing is mass-produced: bread dough is made from the finest, carefully selected ingredients, before being patiently kneaded and baked in traditional ovens.
With their baguettes, loaves, sandwiches and toasts, Rafa and Lud, the two founders have managed to open this friendly and warm shop, thanks to crowdfunding, in the very lively district of Botafogo, a stone's throw from Copacabana Beach.
To accompany the different breads, including the famous Rio Sourdough or soft brioche, The Slow Bakery, which promotes quality craftsmanship and local development, offers a wide selection of coffees, as refined as its flour.
