Around Town: Brasil

My favorite hang out in Houston...Brasil! I decided to feature this great coffee house after reading Denise Kiggan's post on Freshly Found. Denise posted a coffee house she found in her hometown of Durban South Africa. I would love to see bloggers around the world post their favorite hangouts. Imagine, the world united by coffee!
Anyway, Brasil is a funky and eclectic place; where you find every type of person imaginable. I often go with my husband and son, and sit outside. There are two patios filled with lovely trees and greenery. I also, like to go when I am alone to work on a project or read a good book.
There are two great shops surrounding Brasil. Domy Books and Raye, a designer clothing boutique. All three places are owned by partners Dan Fergus and Magda Sayeg, so they have a cohesive feel.
After all that activity, its probably time for lunch...or maybe a nap.

Thanks for the mention! Great idea to have a "Great places for Coffee" theme going. I know I have a few more up my sleeve!

Hi, I just found your blog! I just moved from Montrose out to the 'burbs, but Brasil still has me making a weekly trek into town for the Brasil Club. I have tasty dreams about it often. In fact, Brasil is the place that made me fall in love with the innerloop when I was a teen. Thanks for bringing it the attention it deserves.
