Empanadas Cafe proves you don't need a big SPACE to successfully run a business. Simple is definitely more!!! Their menu is easy to follow; they have a delicious CAFE con Leche, and Colombian Helado (Fruit Ice Cream: some are dairy free and quite refreshing in summer months) Coconut ice cream and Peanut butter are my favorite!!!

The Empanadas are always fresh, never greasy, and filled with the right amount of ingredients. Most of their empanadas are made out of Corn a great option for a Gluten Free meal. Most of the time I call my order in and pick up within 15 minutes. I have ordered empanadas for events, house warmings, birthday celebrations, etc and they are always ALWAYS a big hit! This place is perfectly located minutes away from the highway. ENJOY!!!

It is clean looking and it is a good price. That's about where the positives end. It is VERY small, with virtual no seating. That said a lot of folks seem to do take out. I did too. Waited a pretty long amount of time. When I got back I found the taste so-so (but the sauces are great!) I tried a ground beef with wheat, one with corn, and a pork with corn. Nice variety choosing filling independently of shell. Makes for a lot of combos. If you find them good, you'll be in heaven. I think Tower Isle Jamaican Beef patties in the frozen food aisle is 2x better.

If you're in Flushing Meadows park then this is the place to go for lunch. Tiny place so opt for takeout. Everting is made fresh to order so it takes around 15 mins. The place is always busy but the staff are very friendly. Over the years we've tried almost everything on the menu - favorites are the baccala, spinach and ricotta and the breakfast empanada. The hot sauce is really great too.

A must when you are in Corona! They all taste great and made fresh to order. Wait wasn't long. Their homemade ice cream is amazing as well!

I am no the empanadas type, but we stopped here on a lark en route for lemon ice an wow. Staff is friendly and quick, line is long but don't let that dissuade you. All empanadas are made fresh to order (10 minutes), but this is worth the anticipation. $2 or less will get you a tasty treat!
