Reviews for Cafe Buenos Aires

The staff is very friendly, the woman who is almost always there (I believe the owner) is incredibly kind and attentive. I have been going here often with the man I caregive for and they are so kind to us, even practice Spanish and Italian with him. Amazing service and delicious coffee & empanadas. Much appreciated! We will be back!!!

Got a beef empanada today and it was pretty good. At first blush, it's a little small for $5. But there's no like air pockets in it. Pretty much stuffed to the gills with filling so you don't have any unfilled bites. This, for some reason is really uncommon! Think about it like how bags of chips are mostly air. But not here so even though it looks small you're probably getting the same amount of filling at a place with larger empanadas.

I went for the first time today, and I can't believe I've missed out for the whole year I've lived close by!  I ordered 3 empanadas: mushroom, beef, and chicken.  The pastry was nice and tender, but also held its shape well.  Not greasy at all.  Each one had a unique and interesting flavor -- well-spiced and obviously made with care.  The side of oil with herbs was also super tasty and served in just the right proportion.  It's gonna be a struggle to avoid going back full review
