Brasil opened in 1992 as the first specialty coffee establishment in Houston. The intention was to provide a venue that embodied quality design, products, people, and interaction. Houston has always been a diverse city, yet Brasil was the first establishment to welcome and encourage a connection between different groups. The details of the interior, the landscape, the music, the artwork, the staff, and the menu were designed to create interaction in an atmosphere of casual sophistication.
Brasil’s menu always features local ingredients, and we try to utilize local services whenever possible. Here are just a few of the local businesses we support, and who support our daily operations:
Slow Dough Bread Co. http://slowdoughbreadco.com
We get our breads daily from Houston-based Slow Dough Bread Co. Heath Wendell started Slow Dough a little over five years ago and his business has expanded exponentially in the Houston area. With over 300 local clients, expansion into Austin, and a retail space in Midtown, we are happy to be a part of Wendell’s passion for great, fresh-baked bread.
Dustin's Eggs is run by Dustin, a great guy who raises free-range chickens and produces the finest organic eggs in the Houston area. When not making deliveries to restaurants, you can find him feeding chickens and collecting eggs at the farm in Weimar.
We are proud to partner with Houston's premier specialty cheese shop for all things fromage. Houston Dairymaids supports artisan makers and local small farmers, sourcing unique, high-quality dairy products for restaurants throughout the city.
