A New Brazilian Cafe is coming...
Foster-Powell’s restaurant scene is on a roll — a Brazilian cafe is planning to open this spring in the Southeast Portland neighborhood, specializing in pastries, coffee, and juices from the South American country. Favela should open in mid-May, with Brazilian pastries, espresso, and foosball.
Favela will specialize in all-things Brazilian, from avocado smoothies to coxinhas, similar to shredded chicken fritters.
A Cafe for the community
A place where food is not just sold but the experience is what draws people in, this cafe is a reason to bring all kinds of people together no matter their background.
A small cafe on the southeast side of Portland is the place not only to eat but to also interact with others. Favela Brazilian Cafe opened in August 2019,

Joy Church, Eater Portland contributor and Portland Culinary Alliance Vice President:
“Eem, Scotch Lodge, Akadi, and Favela Brazilian Cafe all brought refreshing and welcome twists to Portland’s food and beverage scene. Gado Gado’s post modernist approach to menu development and its enthusiastic energy are an inspiration. I’m excited to see where the continuing evolution of Fermenter lands, especially as vegan dining establishes itself as far more than a passing trend.”.

THE CHEESIEST DISHES IN PORTLAND
This Foster-Powell Brazilian cafe serves a dauntingly large list of coffee drinks, smoothies, and juices, but the tiny snack menu includes an absolute gem: pão de queijo, or Brazilian cheese bread. Toasty, freshly-baked balls almost always arrive warm and dotted with color, with a springy, soft, cheesy center. Those looking to double-down on dairy can add one of the cafe’s many cheesy sandwiches, whether it’s the melty queijo quente with tomato and oregano or the melty ham-and-cheese misto quente.

WHERE TO EAT AND DRINK ON FOPO
Suited to a neighborhood that’s a bit of everything, Favela is at once a café, a Brazilian market, and a self-described “intergenerational community gathering space.” Favela features community events like movie nights, live music, Portuguese language workshops, and one-of-a-kind gatherings like “Hot Dog Sip and Paint,” along with a menu of sweet Brazilian coffee drinks — such as cafe doce de leite, or butter caramel coffee. For something heartier, Favela offers a small menu of simple sandwiches, fruits, and desserts, as well as the light-and-cheesy pão de queijo, or Brazilian cheese bread
