These empanadas were so good we had them three times. As a take-away or a sit down meal the tourist can't go wrong. The Waitress was very patient with non spanish speakers. That cafe made that corner the start of the Main Street drag.

Very tasty and large empanadas to be had here with a good veggie choice. They came quickly and prices were reasonable. There is a beautiful big dog who waits patiently outside for scraps (please give him some) we nicknamed him 'Bear' & returned several times...More

Stopped in for a quick bite on NYE. Their empanadas are the biggest and most flavorful we have ever had. Made fresh throughout the day. We had to wait about 15 min for the beef empanadas, but it was worth it!

If you want something different from a traditional empanada, this is it, I have never had such big empanadas and such an choice of fillings. These are more than a snack and taste very good as well.

This place caught our eyes with the words "Super Empanadas!" And yes, they were supersized empanadas! The fresh juice is pretty good too. Also try the local meal: rice, vege, hearty soup, and juice. It's simple, but delicious.

Empanadas are HUGE, and for $3.800 CLP ( $5.70 USD) they should be. One is enough for 1 person. The service is really slow but worth the wait.

What you see is what you get. Mother prepairs the simple food and daughter serves. It's cheap but good food and for a quick bite to eat it is perfect!
