Brasil Arts Cafe is a family owned business that is the one and only Brazilian owned restaurant/studio in Santa Barbara, CA. Yes we are very unique, so unique that it took 2 full years for our Santa Barbara community to finally get the idea! Our food focuses on authentic Brazilian cuisine but also highlights local and organic ingredients. Accompanying our wonderful food/juice bar menu we have a fully active studio that consists of mostly Capoeira (Brazilian martial art) for kids and adults, hip hop, zumba, afro-fusion, and other dance. As we have reached our 2 year mark we can see that our sales have increased from the first year to XX% in the second year. It took us this much$$$ to open our business and we are still facing this debt that keeps us fighting everyday to keep something We have put our full heart and soul into this business for our family and our kids. Working about 40 hrs a week each we still havent taken a salary from the restaurant and have so many more ideas to bring this amazing culture to santa barbara.
