Delicious empanadas at a great price. Try them all!!! We stopped by and shared the plantain and lechera empanada, it was so good we went back the next day with the rest of our group and ordered 4 other kinds. I recommend this for a cheap and delicious meal, as these empanadas are HUGE!

We are so glad to have found this little gem! The empanadas are the BEST I've ever had and well worth trying. I had them multiple times while in Sayulita... morning, noon, and night. I tried all of the vegetarian options, each one absolutely delicious! Our favorite thing to do was to pick-up a few, waltz across the street to... More

This is a must for lunch and snacks when on a day out. Over the course of our two weeks in Sayulita I think we tried every kind of empanada here - all were great, but my personal favourites were the mushroom and the blackberry with cream cheese.....YUM!

The first day we shared a blackberry empanada. The second day we shared a poblano empanada. The third day we finally got 4 and happily ate them throughout the day. These are generous pockets of heaven, for $1.50 each.

These empanadas are super flaky and buttery. Great selection of fillings. My friends love the chicken mole. My fav is the poblano pepper filling. So yummy. We got them to take to the beach to snack for I between meals and also perfect for the plane ride home.

Loved the chicken mole! Came around 9 am in the morning and unfortunately did not have the blackberry yet - I can't wait to try it!

Our whole trip to Sayulita I wanted empanadas and we kept missing them and getting stuck at a random restaurant. Finally on our last day we stumbled upon this diamond of a place. We went back 2 more times in a 1 hour period! All of them are delicious and highly recommend any and every empanada at this place! We're... More

Great and super cheap breakfast. Empanadas are freshly made and still warm and the prices are super low. The best place in town for a simple, but excellent breakfast

I love the daily specials but be sure to get there early because they sell out fast! These empanadas are delicious, fresh and hot from the oven.
