The magical thing about this place is that a) you are hungry... b) you look around for food in the middle of nowhere it seems c) you stumble upon this place thinking that it can't be THAT great since you are where you are. d) And then it exceeds above and beyond your expectations. The service was extremely kind and... More

Came for the empanadas, stayed for the breakfast scramble! Portions were good, prices were great, and the coffee was delicious. Also had a banana and papaya smoothie... everything was fantastic! Highly recommended.

This treasure of a place has the best food like empanadas from fresh ingredients like chicken, coconut juice, potatoes and spices for surprisingly sophisticated flavors. Yummy. My husband said the hamburger was juicy and delicious. I stuck with empanadas which change all the time. So I kept going back for more. Pleasant fun place to sit and watch the Bocas... More

This is a very unassuming little shack on the side of the road on the way out of town. However, their baked empanadas are probably the best I've tasted in both Central and South America (possibly with the exception of a little place in Buenos Aires) and only $1 for each!! Lovely.

We ate pretty much everything on the menu. The burgers are excellent, really well made. But the best thing is the empanadas. The contents varies on a daily basis, we tried roasted vegetable, mini cheese burgers, braised beef in coconut and wine, and plantain and garlic. Everything was exceptional! They also make a great snack cold for lunch. The owner... More
