Time Out says

Stopping by this shop for the heavenly variety of sweet baked goods is the norm (try the flan de leche and the caramel napoleon), but we make a meal from the rotating tins of meaty snacks that pile up in the hot case. Beef and chicken–stuffed empanadas, flavorful palito de queso (cheese-stuffed pretzel sticks) and wildly rich chorizo come out from the kitchen every few hours, so arrive early for a choice bar stool, and you can pluck your picks from the freshest batch while sipping turbo-strength Colombian coffee.
