“Authentic”
Reviewed 17 April 2014

After speaking with a local Chilean couple, they told us to grab a couple of empanadas. So, we did. DELICIOUS. There are always a few different, unique varieties of empanadas. And they're always on point. The Empanada Kitchen is a stand between the public restrooms and park area. You can grab a few and go sit in the park and enjoy the lake view. We'll be grabbing these until it's time to go back home!

“Something different, and convenient”
Reviewed 10 April 2014

Love the location, right at Earnslaw Park. Such a lovely change from grabbing a pie or sandwich in your short lunch break. Ideal to buy a few to treat your collegues at work.
