EMPANADAS!!!

Excellent empanadas! This little resturant is tucked away behind another little store, but I am so glad we found it. They have a limited menu of soups, desserts and empanadas, but the whole shop smelled amazing! We tried the chicken and the beef empanadas and we were smiling from ear-to-ear! Try... read more

The food here was excellent. We all ordered a little something different, but we all enjoyed our food. There were two little picnic tables outside to stop and eat, and they were shaded which was a nice break from the heat.

We received fast service although a line soon formed behind us. I ordered an empanada and a delicious salcedo salad. I was prepared to be disappointed in the salad as it was prepackaged from the fridge but the ingredients were fresh and varied -- artichoke hearts, hearts of palm, olives. The dressing was also tasty. Others in our group had... More

This hidden gem is a great place to get a limited menu of soup, empanadas and desserts. The food is very good and the staff lovely. A great place for a quick reasonably priced meal.

We are glad you loved our empanadas. We make them in both beef and chicken, but beef is by far the most popular. More

My wife and I wanted to snack on something, so we stopped for an empanada. It looked amazing, but it left much to be desired. Very bland tasting. I always give a spot two chances so we will stop by again. Maybe to try something else.

This place is a staple whenever my family visits the area. They've made a number of delicious additions to the menu over the years, and have retained the staples. If you're passing by, NEVER leave without a fresh loaf of bread.

As a local this place is a must see for anyone coming into town! We always take our family and friends here to get a loaf of warm bread or an empanada as we walk around the downtown area! The staff is always so friendly and the food never dissapoints! Now they take credit cards which is a great plus... More

We happened upon this place. It's small and sits back a little from the street. We had a good lunch, soup and a drink. The seating is outdoors. The baked goods looked delicious, but we resisted the temptation.
