In downtown Ames, this local restaurant with a Brazilian flare has good sandwiches and ok entrees. Only complaint is the restaurant is small and loud.

I highly recommend this restaurant. Our food was delicious and the portion sizes were perfect. Because it was made with fresh ingredients there was real and authentic flavor. The Cuban sandwich is perfection.

Two visits in one week. The burgers are the best in Ames. We sat on the sidewalk. The cafe is very small but the weather was great for a sidewalk cafe!
