Thanks for your opinion, but you are referring to inside in the empanada or outside on the dish??. If you refer inside, the sour cream dont support the oven heat, but out is a good idea, come back and talk with us about this. My Name is Armando Gaetan or write us here. Thanks. More

we have bought fresh pasta and have eaten the pizza, but went the other day for breakfast - BIG mistake - everthing was horrible - rubbery eggs, spongy sausage, soggy toast, watery coffee - too many other great places to eat breakfast!

We were there in mid-December for breakfast and the service and bacon, egg, and cheese bagel sandwich were excellent ... coffee too. So when we returned in January we decided to try their pizza for a quick dinner one night. It was terrific! Light thin crust, lots of cheese and pepperoni ... it easily rivaled some of the best in...

Had breakfast here twice, and then our scuba guide also unexpectedly brought their empanadas on the boat for lunch, Everything was delicious, and I'd definitely recommend. Quick and easy to grab something to go, and open early (6am).
