More bakery then restaurant.

Stopped by this place a couple of times while in the neighborhood. Pretty good selection of Brazilian baked goods. I am always there for breakfast and get various salgadinhos which are very good, and a sweet, which is always excellent. Their sweets make me come back each time. Today I had a very delicate yellow cake topped with candied bananas and the bottom soaked in a banana-infused syrup. It was wonderful.

On a previous visit I had a slightly sweet, very dense corn bread with whole kernel corn that was very tasty.

The salgadinhos are the usual suspects. Regardless of where I have them I always feel like the fillings could use a bit more zing. That said they are satisfying in their comfort food way.

They also do a nice cafe com leite.

Later in the day they serve rotissery chicken and had a lunch special listed for $4.75.

Bottom line, I just like this place. Nice "trip to Brazil" with a homey vibe, without ever leaving Boston. The young women who work there are very sweet and always seem pleasantly surprised at this gringo dropping in out of nowhere.
