Temporarily Closed

We have good news and bad news. The good news is that we’re opening a new restaurant location in the Temescal neighborhood of Oakland this Winter. The bad news is that we are temporarily closed and will not be taking orders while the new location is under construction. Thank you to our loyal customers for being so patient during our longer than anticipated transition. We will update you on our progress as we get closer to our Grand Opening date. Thank you!

How to Order

Lead Time
We bake-to-order so we don't keep an inventory of empanadas on hand. We appreciate at least 3 business days advance notice for all orders or 1 week notice for orders of 5 dozen or more. We'll contact you to confirm the order, answer any questions, and provide a pricing quote.

*** Deadline for holiday orders is Wednesday, December 19th by 5pm. Last pickup/delivery before Christmas is Monday, December 24th at 12pm. ***

Minimum Order
Empanadas are sold by the dozen. Check out our menu for the current Featured Flavors. Mix and match your favorites to create a custom dozen. You'll find our complete list of over 25 empanada flavors on our larger Catering Menu. We're happy to make any empanada on our menu. To order a flavor that isn't currently featured, the minimum is 5 dozen empanadas.

Hot or Take & Bake
Ready to eat now or want an empanada stash for later? We offer both! Take & Bake empanadas are partially baked and sold cold. Store them in the refrigerator or freezer and pop them in the oven for 10 minutes when the craving strikes.

We deliver throughout the SF Bay Area for orders over $150. Deliveries to Oakland are free. Outside of Oakland, orders are subject to a delivery charge. You may prefer to pickup instead.

We don't have a retail storefront, but we can arrange pickup by appointment at our kitchen in Emeryville.

Once your order is confirmed we'll send you an email invoice with a secure payment link via Square.

Catering FAQ

How big are the empanadas?
Sizes vary. Our savory empanadas are snack size. You'll finish it in 4-5 bites. Sweet empanadas are a little smaller at 3 bites.

How much should I order?
One savory empanada is a great snack, but you can make a meal with 2-3 savory empanadas, a side, and a sweet. If multiple appetizers or dinner courses are served, we'd recommend 1-2 savory empanada per person.

Can't I just order at the Farmer's Market?
Of course! But if you order in advance, you'll never have to worry that we'll sell out of your favorite flavor. We'll have your order packaged and ready to go, no waiting. Plus, we give a 10% discount compared to the market price.

Do you ship?
Not yet. But, if there's enough interest, we'll figure out a way to make it happen. Message us and we'll add you to the list.
