CAFE BRAZIL IS OPEN AND STUFF

Like many of y'all we've checked out the new Cafe Brazil in Denton over on University and Carroll since it opened last Tuesday. This is the same Cafe Brazil you've come to know and love since 1991. There's lots of flavored coffees available for you to mix and match, late nights and a breakfast-heavy large menu. We've always thought of it as a North Texas version of Magnolia Diner or Kerbey Lane Cafe (both out of Austin). 

Our service was adequate at each of our visits - quick, polite, but there were some slight issues (missing items, etc...). The food was just as good as any of the Dallas Cafe Brazil locations. We ordered a few breakfast items, as well as a few non-breakfast foods some of which are shown below. Overall, for a first week visit, things seemed to be going the right way for 'em. We hope to see something take off in this location (don't jinx 'em and call it "cursed"). Between Cafe Brazil, Royal's Bagels and Denton Donuts, Carroll and University may now be referred to as "the breakfast district" in Denton - watch out, Congress Ave! 

If you like flavored coffees, this is the spot for you.

The chorizo nachos featured Cafe Brazil's house-made chorizo which wasn't greasy at all and pretty tasty. It actually was more similar to ground beef than chorizo to us, texture+wise, though. The nachos had plenty of cheese, but at $2.50 for a dollop of guac, we were left feeling a little cheated.

The fruit "pancrepes" were tasty but a bit overly eggy for us.

A few other things we tried and really dig are the chicken crepes - which are pretty great and come covered in a tasty creamy sauce and the breakfast relleno. The breakfast relleno is somehow the perfect blend of egg, chorizo and cheesy goodness stuffed into a poblano pepper. We were shocked, and almost a little embarrassed by how quickly we inhaled them... and thought about how we wouldn't go without ordering them again.
