Miami New Times' Description
Cases at this Argentine bakery contain a vast variety of butter-based cookies, as well as fruit tarts, Napoleons, strawberry cheesecakes, and mini-pecan pies. Then there are the turnovers tunneled with sweet cheese, fruit, and dulce de leche, and trays of facturas atop the counters. The Argentine-styled empanada, with its juicy, full-flavored chicken and sautéed onion filling, ranks with the very best in Miami. Pork and beef empanadas are available as well, and so are those modeled on other Latin countries, such as a blintzlike Chilean version with soft, pale dough draped around sweet white cheese, and a Venezuelan empanada packed with savorily seasoned beef that is larger than the others and much more pleasing. There's coffee and counter space and a comfortable atmosphere conducive to ruminating on the past, here or in Buenos Aires.
Tips from foursquare
Authentic empanadas in the distinct styles of multiple Latin nations. Legit Argentine facturas, dulces & mate. And fresh-squeezed OJ. This place is great. Argentine and Chilean empanadas de carne FTW!
Go to charlotte cafe next door for the best lunch or dinner
The pan de bono (Colombian cheese bread like biscuits) is the B O M B !! I go 2-3x a week just for this !!
Great Latin pastries and cafe con leches. Their cachito de jamon basically tastes like ham wrapped in pillsbury rolls (this is not a bad thing in my book.)
