“Excellent for Small, Private Parties!”
Reviewed July 20, 2014

Due to a sudden change of plans I needed to find a new place to host my twins' 1st birthday party in less than 2 days. Gigi, the owner, was very helpful & accommodating. She helped me devise a tasty menu & offered decorating ideas as well. She additionally offered us the use of the outside terrace & fountain, let us use our iPod with her speaker system, and even helped us put up a piñata!

All 25 of my guests really enjoyed the food, the intimate & lively space, & Gigi's service. We actually live in the DC Metro area & were just visiting Tallahassee at the time. We've had Peruvian food at many DC area restaurants, including one that the staff of the Peruvian Embassy & World Bank frequent. The food at the Turnover Cafe was just as good!

“Lunch”
Reviewed July 20, 2014 via mobile

Had no idea what to order and our Peruvian server guided us nicely. Turnovers are actually empanadas. The food was quite good. Spicy good! Will return.

We enjoyed appetizers, soup, entree and dessert. Everything was delicious and the service was excellent. We can't wait to go back and try other menu items!

“Great Peruvian food in Tallahassee”
Reviewed July 15, 2014

It is hard to get good Peruvian food in Northern Florida and we are so grateful to have this place in town. The owner is a pleasure and quite a talentaed cook. She´s always expanding the menu and bringing new things into the restaurant. It started as a food-cart and gets better and better everytime we visit.

“Way to go Gigi!”
Reviewed July 15, 2014

I had dined at Gigi's Food Truck before but had never dined in her restaurant! OMG- food was even better sitting down in the a/c with the Spanish music inthe background! Today I had the "special" Arroz con Pollo (chicken w/rice) with some Chicha Morada YUMM!!
