Most Charming Brazilian Outpost: Rio's Brazilian Cafe

Since the beginning, when they sold their savory pastries, sauces, and desserts at the farmers' market, Ben Googins and Elias Martins endeared themselves to the community. With their retail business going strong, they now host benefits, throw lively parties, and serve authentic Brazilian food in a charming East Austin space that's as warm as their smiles. Don't miss their feijoada completa the last Saturday of every month; BYO cacha├ža any day of the week, and they'll make you a killer caipirinha!
