Side dishes -- including salads, sauteed vegetables, bean, rice, and farofa -- are delectable and range in price from $0.75 to $4.50. Most entrees come with a side or two, so you will likely not need to pay extra for these.

Lest you think we consumed this all by ourselves, allow me to inform you that it was Ms. Cruiser who introduced us to Cafe Brasil, and she and Mr. Cruiser helped us demolish this feast.

Good stuff, my friends, made even better because of the pricing.


  1. I don't know a lot about Brazilian food, but I love the bright atmosphere of this place!

  2. That steak looks so good! Esp smothered with onions ...

  3. this looks much better than the AYCE brazilian churrascarrias.
