Keep going with our adventure! Our next visit to a Coffee House was Benzadeus. They are a traditional Coffee Shop right in the centre of Belo Horizonte.
The people who were with me in this time are: Beth Balserofics, Emerson Almeida e Vinícius Bavose (now named “Vaini”). We can say that we lived very funny moments there.
First of all Beth and Vini, (“Vaini”) arrived first and couldn’t find an empty table. They called the waiter and ask: “let us know when you have an empty table!”
They asked for an “Espresso Dolce” while they were waiting. Beth, with her eyes of eagle, saw an empty table and ran to get it. She sat down and asks for a waitress if she could stay there, and what the waitress did? Nothing! She didn’t answer and completely ignored Beth’s explanations! Because of that, that girl, for all night was fondly named “The Evil Girl”.
Emerson and I arrived later, and when we met “The Evil Girl”, we saw of what she is capable to do, so we didn’t ask anything to her. Vini still ate a little chocolate that came with the Coffee, but Beth warned him: “Be carefull this coffee was brought by “The Evil Girl”!” He listened? No, he ate everything (and in what universe Vini will not eat chocolate???). Untill now, he is alive.
Beth and Vini opinion about the “Espresso Dolce”: “good but cold”.
We decided ask for a “Café e Arte” and just two (or three?) words to describe this coffee: I can’t! Was just impossible drink all coffee, has a lot of brandy in it! The one who was capable to drink everything was Emerson.
While we were drinking the “Café e Arte”, I tried to drink by the cinnamon that came inside the cup of coffee. Whence came the expression in Portuguese “Nós tomamos na canela.”
After the failure of can’t drink all coffee, Vini and I asked for a “Choconutella” and Beth asked for a “Cappuccino Sachê”, and for eat we ordered cheese bread and pastries.
To describe all drank coffees just three words: good but cold. In the next time we will order additional smoke! Anyway, the place was very fine and the foods are really good!
After all this, Emerson and Beth started to take many pictures. These I can’t post here, I will sent by e-mail, because are very embarassing. See some (not embarrassing) pictures:
Well, not everyone could attend this meeting, but I hope to see all you guys in the next. We recommend Benzadeus Coffee but, be careful with “The Evil Girl”!
