Armed with a list, Mr. Big made the trip around the block from our hotel on Collins to this wonderful, cozy family bakery on Washington Blvd in SoBe. The list was crucial for first timers, since Charlotte Bakery offers an outstanding selection of South American pastries, both savory and sweet. We settled for a sampling of chicken and ground beef... More

I stopped in to grab a quick breakfast on my way to a meeting. The coffee was strong, just the way I like it. Spinach & cheese (Argentinian) and a delicious pumpkin empanada were both fresh with beautiful pastry and very tasty fillings. Highly recommended for a casual breakfast or lunch.

Is a very well known locals spot, as well as regular tourists. If you like the tasty stuff from south america, this is a most. Keep in mind that if you go in the hours between 7 am and 10 am, you might have to wait quite a bit.

We decided to try this place as a snack as I had read enticing reviews about the empanadas. Needless to say it ended up being our dinner two nights in a row! So filling and delicious! I highly recommend it!

Not bad by any means..... but the amazing reviews I read were very misleading. The empanadas are way too expensive..... incredibly more greasy than normal, and just... average. Come here if you are starving and money is no object. Otherwise, go somewhere else..... This is just my humble opinion anyways. I was not impressed. Staff was friendly for the most... More

Since I am gluten free finding food has been a challenge. So my husband and I went here for breakfast because we wanted a local hot spot. They have pan de bono( which is a slightly sweet cheese bread) pan de queso (which is a Brazilian cheese bread) and Venezuelan arrepas! All was excellent along with columbian cafe con leche... More

Oddly, I discovered this place just around the corner from my hotel after mistakenly making a trip up to Charlotte's North Beach Venezuelan/Argentine counterpart Moises Bakery (a disappointing experience. See my review). This place is everything that Moises should've been with similar stryle and atmosphere. Apart from a more helpful, enthused staff it had grilling on the premises, arepas left...
