Santa Cruz 3/08; Cafe Brasil Best Breakfast

What a tremendous spot. Colorful, sunny, funky. Extensive menu with many unusual items.
Terrific Brazilian coffee, friendly easygoing positive people and atmosphere. Enormous portions.The Brazilian black beans on the Rancheros egg dish- were the best I have ever had in the U.S. (And I have eaten a LOT of black beans in my time!!). Lovely large blueberry muffins. Polenta is a neat option and my husband loved his, but because the polenta was plain, and not made with milk and /or cheese, I found them boring, though nice texture.
Oh, i almost forgot, some wonderful fresh fruit frappes and juices.
