The restaurant is deceiving because it is a small store front place. It is not fancy inside but the food is delicious and the staff is courteous and attentive. The owner came by to thank us for coming.

Not a fancy place but the food was soooo good!! Limited dinner menu as restaurant has just begun to offer dinners after being a luncheon restaurant for a few years. Proprietor is the chef and visited our table to personally check on our experience. Will go again (many times I hope!)

Call ahead to make certain that they are not out of the national dish Feijoada; they were out when we went. Try the collard greens and the farofa - very interesting and tasty.

Paulo was extremely helpful! Decor was a little bare, but the food more than made up for it. We will definitely go back.

I am Brazilian and one of the things that i would recommend is to expand on the beverage menu and also to start carrying Guarana.

Samba Cafe's owner Paulo champions the regional dishes of Southeast Brazil. The crown jewel of the menu is the "National Brazilian Dish," Feijoada. Though the stew started its life as a Portuguese import, the Brazilian version took on a life of its own. Samba Cafe's take on the dish incorporates black beans and a trio of meats?pork, beef, and sausage?and tops it off with saut?ed garlic collard greens, an orange slice, and farofa. "[Customers] are always surprised by the flavors," he says. In addition to other Brazilian specialties, including the Farofa da Serra?scrambled eggs, bananas, and spices?the restaurant also serves up a handful of American favorites, including wraps, panini, and burritos.
