If you mention Brazilian food when you're in the Bay Area, someone is sure to tell you all about Brazil Fresh Squeeze Cafe. You can't miss our colorful exterior just a block off the Berkeley campus: look for the Brazilian flags and our huge handwritten menu. Our signs will draw you in, but it's our delicious, authentic Brazilian food that will keep you coming back again and again. Our customers become fast friends here at Brazil Fresh Squeeze Cafe. Watch the world go by at one of our outdoor tables or have your food wrapped to go—either way, it'll knock you out.
Our grilled tri-tip is truly addictive. If you've never had tri-tip before, you're in for a treat: it's a cut of steak that is especially tender, flavorful, and juicy. A Brazilian culinary staple. Intrigued? Ask for a sample! Then try our tri-tip sandwich, tri-tip salad, or tri-tip plate with rice, grilled onions, salad and bread. Our tri-tip has been voted best in the Bay Area and customers say it's the best they've found anywhere!
In addition, we serve many other traditional Brazilian bowls, sandwiches, and salads. Our Brazilian rice bowl is a huge bowl of rice, onions, cilantro garlic sauce, ricotta, and your choice of meat. Our salad plates are loaded with chicken, teriyaki, or tuna, on a bed of crispy veggies and pineapple. You can get hot or cold sandwiches, too. Experience our crispy chicken Bossa Nova sandwich with hearts of palm; the Carnaval, which is a vegetarian sandwich with ricotta, grilled onions, and pineapple; or our Copacabana sandwich, which is fresh tuna salad with onions and baby dill. Try Pedro's favorite: cheese, jalapenos, pineapples, and olives. All sandwiches are served on a French or multigrain roll. The flavors and appearance of our food is as vibrant as our decor!
