Thanks again to fellow Yelpers I have found this place. Although it's about 2 miles from my house I never knew it existed. I don't go past this stretch of 5th st often.Upon entering I was greeted by a good morning/ buenos dias from one of the friendly girls working behind the counter. She was really helpful and patient considering it was my first visit here and I obviously did not speak fluent Spanish. Luckily she spoke good English. I chose 2 empanadas; one beef, one chicken and an arepa w/ cheese.Came w/ a bangin' green spicy salsa. From the huge pastry display I got a flaky pastry filled w/ guava. All were excellent! She pointed out some of her favorite pastries which all looked great. As a line formed I felt kinda guilty asking what's this, what's that so I hurried it up. At no point did I feel rushed by the girl who waited on me.All in all a pleasant experience which I know will often be repeated. A constant flow of people and refilling of the hot foods assures everything is fresh!Too bad I can't drink coffee; they had some excellent selections.
