This Montrose eatery is a neighborhood favorite for those looking to relax with a cup of coffee or light sandwich. Besides the exposed brick interior, Brasil features two outdoor spaces: a shady patio facing Dunlavy and a courtyard in the back. Most patrons frequent the restaurant for the coffee, which includes everything from cappuccino to iced coffee, but there is also a menu with breakfast and lunch items. The homemade pizzas are especially popular, as are the vegetarian options, including the goat cheese and beet sandwich.
Congratulations to Mei Lin, winner of Top Chef Season 12.
