Caroline Café (Lagoa)
A mix of casual chic Village with the sunset at Dois Irmãos (two brothers), premised the idea of merging the modern with the cool of Soho artsy Botanical Garden and the other of stirring things up with the hubbub of the Stone Street in Buzios. Hence was born Caroline Café. Most well known pub in Jardim Botânico.
