The Nutella and banana empanada is expected to be a massive hit among sugar fanatics; with lots of the chocolatey, hazelnut filling oozing from the fresh pastry.
Additional sweet options include guava and cheese and even bacon, date and goat cheese if you're craving a mix of sweet and salty.
They've even got breakfast choices served all day including ham and cheese; egg, cheese and bacon; and egg and cheese. You can also pair your pastries with cold brew coffee, Mexican Coke or Jarritos.
Get three for $10 as their lunch and dinner options, a dozen for $33 and a half dozen for $18.
