Better than Good and Fresh.
The food is better than good. The beef empanada was an exquisite blend of flavors and textures, and you actually got lots of the delicious filling. The pastry was delicious and thin, so lower on carbs. The lovely Graciella tempted me with the croissants filled with caramel flavor - amazingly delicious and addictive - truly, you have never tasted pastry as good as this. Every mouthful was heaven, and I had to take some home.
I am told breakfast is even better, and the new fresh baked truck comes in around 10 a.m.

This empanada cafe breaks the pricey boutique mold with delicious, budget-friendly treats in the form of empanadas, tostinos and more for under $3 a pop. Inside the vibrant food shop, empanadas are stamped with letters to indicate the stuffing inside, such as "BJ" for beef with jalapeño, "CK" for chicken, onions and red peppers, and "V" for veggie. Beverly Center shoppers and Third Street drifters pack the space for these Spanish turnovers. For dessert there's Nonna's Cake and flute limoncellos.
