The word gringo is an inoffensive South American term for foreigners, and this restaurant is aimed at the expat community as well as curious locals. The menu aims to offer well-made versions of classic American dishes to prove that American food is about more than junk food. The breakfast here are a hit with tourists from North America, with a range of options including eggs (scrambled, boiled, poached, or fried) with hash browns, bacon and a choice of fresh bread. Pancakes, waffles and French toast are also on the breakfast menu. Lunch and evening options include a range of salads and sandwiches, light bites such as dips, and, of course, the classic American cheeseburger.

  If you are looking for solidly traditional American comfort food in Rio, this is the place. My wife and I had 3-egg omelets rich with fillings and french toast that was sweet and tasty. Compliments to both Sam (Owner) for his vision and Sidney (Chef) for their friendliness and expertise, plus the additional help with directions via Onibus to Corcovado!...   Read More
