Cafe Rio is the newest breakfast place on Main Street across from the former Navy base. The location is a bit bleak and I am not certain if there is enough traffic to stir up business. No business in that space has historical done well. The fairly new housing development across the street has never given that small corner enough business to stay open. Their morning competition is the donut joint two doors down. The food is Brazilian and American food. Are Alamedans ready for Brazilian food in the morning because the cafe closes early in the afternoon and they are not open for late dinners. I was informed the owner has another location in Oakland.
