Agne Costa is the proud owner and chef of Cafe Dede's, a restaurant in Lapa especializing in brunch goods. Costa had been cooking for 16 years when the economic crisis hit, and he took the chance to go abroad. From 2010 till 2018, he worked in Italy, Germany, Finland, Kenya, and Australia, where he seems to have found his passion: brunch. Very popular amongst Australians, this combination of breakfast and lunch has taken over the world, Portugal included.
That is precisely what Agne serves at Cafe Dede's: an outstanding brunch menu with great specialty coffee on the side. It took him sometime to find the perfect spot, but he finally did: Lapa. He now also has an outpost inside the Gladstone gym which is open to the public.
