“Authentic”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 17, 2014

After speaking with a local Chilean couple, they told us to grab a couple of empanadas. So, we did. DELICIOUS. There are always a few different, unique varieties of empanadas. And they're always on point. The Empanada Kitchen is a stand between the public restrooms and park area. You can grab a few and go sit in the park and enjoy the lake view. We'll be grabbing these until it's time to go back home!

“Something different, and convenient”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 10, 2014

Love the location, right at Earnslaw Park. Such a lovely change from grabbing a pie or sandwich in your short lunch break. Ideal to buy a few to treat your collegues at work.
