This was my first visit and I will definitely be back. Laid back atmosphere, fantastic food, and a great drink selection. Amazing value for dining out.

A friendly, clean place for a coffee and a Mr. Dewey's cashew milk frozen dessert (one of our favorites, and local!). Found the empanadas a bit dry. Flavor of shrimp chowder was good but not much shrimp in it. Feijoda had good flavor altho portion was very modest. Service is good; note parking can be difficult at peak times in this Glenview shopping/dining area.

The venue could be spruced up more. Customers walk up and order and pay and then a food runner brings the food. Super casual local joint with neighbors drinking coffee/beer on their computers. There’s free parking in the back which is nice.
They need to add a Brazilian vibe with music.
They also need to finish the open ceilings which looks kind of tacky.
Wishing them the best!

ordered the steak and it was so salty I had three small bites. steak was way overcooked but it's not a steakhouse so I kinda expected it to be well done, which is why I ordered rare, hoping it would come out medium rare. Fantastic customer service though.

I thought the food was OK. The serving sizes were small for the price. I ordered empinadas and they didn't even bother to heat them up. On the plus side, the staff is very friendly and accommodating.

Love this place! The food and staff are excellent. You don’t wait long for your food and the empanadas are waiting for you hot and fresh at the counter. They are amazing

Walkup order service, so not quite what I expected for brunch. Menu was fine for omelets, pastries and toasts.

Just wasn't my cup of tea. I had the Bobo de Camarao. It was okay, seemed to be missing something, but I have never had this dish before so it may have been perfectly prepared and I just didn't like it. The beer selection is a little to long on IPA's. It was busy and I know people who love it. Maybe I should have tried the empanada's. The Pão de Queijo was delicious.

Authentic Brasilian tasting pastries and feijoada. Service was subpar as we were asked to move to another table so that our table could be used for a large party. As soon as we got up with drinks in hand, we noticed there wasn’t any tables available for us. We ended up leaving. Cute layout but service needs work. No staff spoke Portuguese. Hope things improve.

I like the relaxed friendly neighborhood feel to this place. The sandwich and fries were delicious. Their Paulista Pils was delicious. It was served in the appropriate glass and temperature. The service is friendly and timely. Friday night felt like it was time to unwind and this was the setting to do it. The price is right, too!

One of the friendly owners came out and introduced himself during our meal. That was a nice touch. Then he came back out and took our dessert order. We liked our seafood stew but thought the salad was only good, not great. Flan and coffee afterwards were perfect!
