Senzala began as a café and creperie in conjunction with The Brick Box, an arts and community organisation.  In 2013 Senzala rebranded as a stand-alone restaurant, continuing to serve French crepes with Brazilian Flair.


The Senzalas were slave houses for plantations and farms in Brazil from the 16th to 19th centuries. It was from the Senzalas that much of Brazilian culture developed, such as Capoeira and popular dishes like Feijoada stew.  We named our creperie ‘Senzala’ in tribute to those who formed our Brazilian roots and influences.
