The food is great, the service is good (although as we found typical in Bolivia, they serve locals before gringos). No wifi but also no tourists when I visited, it seems they're more well known with locals. Great place, I'll come back before I leave Sucre.

Expect nothing special here, just good empanadas, nothing else. Friendly service. The place lacks a bit of atmosphere.

In my humble opinion, this little roadside stop has the best Chicken empanada/salteñas in the city. When I want a chicken salteña I will walk out of my way to go here and order the 'Santa Clara' which is filled with chicken and other yumminess! The beef salteñas are nothing to write home about though. If I want beef, I... More

El Paso de los Abuelos is a typical, local stop for seated, non-street sold empanadas. The place lacks decoration or character, but has a number of tables to sit at. The empanadas are average in size and taste and are market-priced (about $1 USD). Drinks options are mainly chilled sodas (no fresh-squeezed juices). There are two types of empanadas to... More
