Ovo Cafe

It may look humble, but the Brazilian eats at this Oxford Street restaurant are worth their weight in cheese balls

From its hammock-slung ceiling and chalkboard painted with a vista of Rio de Janeiro, to its inconsistent but always acceptable coffee, Cafe Ovo is a somewhat-full to mostly-empty oasis in a sea of hour-long lines at breakfast time in Darlinghurst.

Serving up Brazilian classics like feijoada and cassava cheese bread alongside regular Australian breakfast food, Cafe Ovo's menu is as good as most in Surry Hills. It is staffed entirely by lovely and attractive people, most of whom are Brazilian. On weekends, they even do a sweet buffet (literally the buffet is made of cakes). What's not to love?

Actually, the Ovo Cafe has just reopened with a completely fresh look. The same great classic Brazillian dishes are still there but with some interesting new ones to try. It's definitely worth taking another look. The place usually packed for lunch and is full of Brazilians, which is always a good sign.
