Cafe directions

Rio's Brazilian Cafe is located on North Pleasant Valley Road, between East 4th and East 5th Streets.

We have parking on the side and behind the Cafe, plus street parking is available on all back streets.

We are just north of Cesar Chavez Street (new IBC Bank), and just south of East 7th Street (HEB and Sonic.)

We are across the intersection from Capitol Metro Headquarters, and next to a three-story apartment complex (in process.)

NOTE: Constuction is complete on East 7th Street! It is a beautiful, and very easy-to-travel street. Take East 7th Street and turn right at the HEB. We're right down the street!

Feijoada - the national dish of Brazil

Join us every last Saturday of the month for feijoada, the traditional Brazilian meal made from scratch by Elias.

The national dish of Brazil, feijoada is a stew of pork, beef, sausage and black beans. We serve it with traditional white rice sauteed in garlic and butter; collard greens, a side dish made of sauteed yuca flour with garlic and banana; oranges; and our fresh-baked pao de queijo.

$18 - veggie version available
