Cafuné is a Brazilian Bistro offering a unique dining experience away from the large chain restaurants that have taken over Toronto.
We had the chance to try Cafuné recently and quickly thought that this would be great place for a casual intimate dinner, a place for friends to be able to hear each other over some great flavours, or just a quick cup of real Brazilian coffee without the rush of downtown cafés.
Cafuné has a seasonal menu that brings fresh Brazilian flavours, and serves them in style.
This isn't a tourist oriented bulk BBQ meat on a stick Brazilian Restaurant. Cafuné is an authentic brazilian restaurant that has appetizers like fresh baked Pão de Queijo, and the Piri Piri Sausages, to a well the well presented Cafuné Salad -- a field tomato with bocconcini, and garnished with fresh basil cashew pesto.
Who knew you could find a Lebanese-inspired contribution to Brazilian cuisine? Try the Esfiha, a much tastier and flaky version of an empanada, stuffed with ground beef, onions, tomatoes, and fresh mint. The Cafuné Chicken & Prawns, complete with light coconut milk, chili peppers and basmati rice; would also be a good choice.
Cafuné is located at 194A Carlton Street, Toronto and can be reached at (647) 748-7884.
Thursday nights enjoy the free Brazilian Jazz or Bassa Nova live bands between 6:30pm - 8:00pm.
Just mention HotTorontoDeals to your server, when ordering at least two main dishes and get two free cups of the great Brazilian coffee!
Free WiFi for the working lunch and coffee crowd. Don't forget to try Brazil's popular soft-drink, Guarana.
