Great food, if you are looking for a small taste of Peru, this is the place to go. The staff are really nice and friendly. One plate can fill you up for the rest of the day. After I eat here I leave happy and full. You can always call in advance and they will have your food ready by... More

The quality of the food is so so. Do not go with much expectations. The portions are small for the price. We will not go again.

We are sorry you were not pleased with your serving portions. We wish you had alerted us when you were at the restaurant to rectify any serving errors. We are frequently told our prices are very reasonable for the quantity and quality of our food. It would help to know exactly what you ordered to look into it further. Regards. More

The Turnover Cafe is great! This is a small locally-owned boutique-sized restaurant featuring Peruvian food, beer and wine. The owner is Peruvian-born, and a great cook. Prices are very reasonable, e.g. large beef or chicken or chicken & cheese or feta & spinach empanadas (stuffed pastry turnovers) are $4-5. Food is fresh and delicious, the cook/owner Gigi and her staff... More

I love this place so much! I have been (through marriage) a part of the Peruvian-American community for almost 30 years. I visit Peru pretty much every 2 or 3 years. Sometimes I need a dose of good Peruvian food and The Turnover Cafe always hits the spot. My MIL used to prepare Causa (kinda like cold Shepherd's Pie) but... More

This is a small Peruvian resturant offering (you guessed it) Peruvian food. I had the Saturday empanada which was filled with pork and plantain. The pork was well flavored and the plantain added just the right amount of sweetness. It was the crust, however, that made me really love it. It was flakey, rich, and crisp the way a well... More

This little restaurant serves up wonderfully fresh homemade turnovers and pasta. The staff are welcoming and friendly, and the food is absolutely delicious. The prices are very good, but some dinner items can get a little pricey, so there are options for any budget. The atmosphere is ambient and pleasing and the dining area, while small, is roomy and not... More

The turnover cafe is a small, quaint establishment. I tried them for lunch one day, and I ordered the turnover/Empanada of the day (Creamy Chicken) and there was nothing creamy about this turnover... dryer than the Sahara. Wasn't the great turnovers that I read about in the reviews. I figured that I may have picked the wrong one. Then, I... More

Owner is very nice and offers authentic Peruvian cuisine. I love that they have different specials every day so you can always try something new. The empanadas are delicious but make sure you come Friday for a real treat with the ceviche! Everything looks to be handmade in the open kitchen.

Wonderful food and the staff was very friendly. My wife and I both left full and satisfied for under $20.

This is a very good little restaurant but I could not possibly see it as Tallahassee's #1 restaurant out of 650+ restaurants in the city. In the first place, It's tiny...it has only four tables, one table for eight, two tables for four, one table for two and two bar stools for a total capacity of only 20. It has... More
