Been a couple of times for breakfast. Can be packed and have a bit of a wait. Never been disappointed. . the fruit is always fresh. Neat and interesting dishes. Portions are large and the quality of the products are great. Bread is fresh, meats are excellent quality. A plus in my book .

I went with my two friends to this little cafe, and it packs one food punch! The food is absolutely delicious. We had the:
Frappe de coco
Feijoada compleata
Churro sco sandwich
Rissole camarao
Acai bowl

And all were amazing. I would thoroughly recommend this cafe to all who enjoy good food!!

Cafe Brasil (Yelp lists it as Cafe "Brasil") is a charming indoor/outdoor restaurant serving breakfast, lunch and dinner, as well as smoothie/juice drinks and acaí bowls. It's located on Hwy 1 in Santa Cruz's northern UC district. Bring cash and expect a 15-60 minute wait, especially on weekends. Parking is mostly street, with a small lot. Benches thoughtfully provided for waiting.

We did wait on a Sunday morning, about a half hour. Gave us a chance to visit nearby Coffeetopia and grab a couple well-made lattes. Once seated, we opted for the $9.75 Galo Pinto - poached eggs, Costa Rican rice/beans and ripe plantains - and, though it was OK, we decided we'll try something else next time. Others around us seemed quite happy with their eye-appealing entrees.

The smoothie/juice/acai offerings are extensive - we decided on the $5.25 Vermehlo Brilhante (watermelon, mango, ice) and it was tasty. If you haven't had an acaí bowl before, this is a great place to have your first one.

Lunch/dinner offerings include some traditional Brazilian/Portuguese entrees, including Bacalhoada and Feijoada.
