When you walk into Café Brasil, chances are you’ll see Fatima proudly running the kitchen of her 30-year-old restaurant. For generations, Brazilian families have found a slice of home in her food at Café Brasil. Whether it’s the restaurant’s all-day breakfast or delicious feijoada, Fatima ensures that everything is as freshly homemade as possible. Late mornings at Café Brasil usually involve scrambled eggs with collard greens, fried plantains, Brazilian cheese bread, and freshly squeezed passion fruit juice. Brazilian coffee is strong, and Fatima usually swirls in a cinnamon stick to bloom the brew’s natural flavors. If you’re coming for lunch, expect some great pasteis, which are fried empanadas stuffed with ground beef, cheese, or hearts of palm. These crispy pockets pair well with a glass of freshly squeezed sugar cane juice or a plate of steaming feijoada for a big afternoon meal. What makes Café Brasil so special is the significance it holds for Brazilians either passing through LA or who now call it home. It’s a spot to enjoy a Guarana soda and a small bite, watch a soccer match, or meet up with friends for a strong cafézinho.
