The idea behind Lia Café International was to bring a taste of Brazilian culture to the Washington, D.C. metro area. Nestled in the heart of Mount Pleasant’s bustling collection of shops and restaurants, Lia Café International is a wonderful place to relax, and enjoy the company of friends while partaking of robust Brazilian coffee and delicious Brazilian foods.
Need a quick break from the hectic pace of your busy life? Then come inside and immerse yourself in the calming ambience of a traditional Brazilian loja (the Portuguese word for “emporium”), a place where customers are regarded as guests, and shopkeepers are regarded as hosts. Or, if you prefer to be in the open air while catching your breath, we also have outdoor seating for your pleasure.
