A quick lunch stop. Firstly, you give your order at the front desk as you walk in, then take a seat. A staff member then takes your receipt and returns with your food. The food was quite good, the service was reasonable. You sit in a courtyard, which is quite good for watching people. All in all, not bad for... More

I think regarding the Salteñas, this place is overrated, They are neither especially good nor worse. If you ar hunting for the best Salteñas, go to the streets and eat yourself through the secret recipes of the street vendors and different pastelerias! The place is very good however, to watch the locals mingle with tourists. Very nice to have a... More

The best saltenas in town ( so our local friends told us). We certainly enjoyed them and returned for more a number of times. The juga con leche was excellent also. It is an airy atmosphere, a great place to have a brunch of saltenas. It is a saltenas place so that is what is on the menu.

Perfect for a light lunch or snack. We tried a meat and chicken saltenas and they were both incredible, particularly the meat one. Very sad that we didn't have the time to return! Useful to note that it closes at 1, so get there early. On our first trip we got there and it was closed :(

The menu is simple: chicken saltena, beef saltena, or chicken empanada to eat (each selling for about $1); soda, water or lemonade to drink. There's a counter as you walk in, and you order and pay there. You then take your receipt and sit at a table, and a waitress will eventually come, take your receipt, and then bring your... More

Food here is amazing! Order at the front, then either sit at a table or go to the back counter for take away. Simple food, done so well! Sweet outside, savory inside. so so tasty!

Amazing Bolivian salteñas in a cute courtyard. Be aware that it closes at 12:30! And there may be long queues, but worth the wait.

Very cool historic building and patio. Full of locals and great for people watching, which is how we learned most Bolivians eat their saltena with a spoon! Delicious food at 8 bolivianos each. Be patient (like the locals are) and get there early. Kid friendly.
