We decided to use SDV catering for our baby shower and it was great! The food was delicious, the service impeccable at a super affordable price. We chose the feijoada and the portions were very generous. I still have frozen feijoada in my freezer for...More

A casual cafe with great food. I tried some appetizers and a sandwich. The chicken in the sandwich was freshly broiled and plentiful, the fries fantastic. I don't know if this is authentic Brazilian food, but it was tasty and well-prepared. Friendly service.

Our favorite here are the steaks. The owner is a wonderfully warm guy. You always feel welcome. There are also other side dishes that are fresh and original

My friend who is originally from Brazil recommended I try out this place, so I got the approval of an actual Brazilian :) I wasn't disappointed. This is now one of my favorite restaurants. I like the acebolada with picanha, but really everything is good...More
