This family-owned pastry shop is part coffee shop, grocery store, and bakery. Enjoy a taste of Argentina with its expansive menu of delicacies you can munch on from morning ‘til night.
They’re serious about their coffee here, so stop by for a latte or frappé and a veggie or meat-filled empanada to start your day. And if you’re craving a mid-day sweet treat, your options are endless. A few highlights include puff pastries, cake balls, a variety of delicious cakes you can order by the slice, and alfajores – a pastry made with dulce de leche, flour, honey, and nuts.

The Ranch boasts their own personal pastry chef! So, don't stuff yourself on the starters and mains. You simply MUST save room for dessert. I suggest that you finish your over-the-top dining experience with a basket of not-your-ordinary fried pies. I'm not talking apple or peach. Think of creamy pie fillings made of banana pudding, red velvet cake or Oreos enveloped in a light and crispy crust. Flavors rotate seasonally. The Route 66 Pecan Pie is a popular sweet treat along with the Chipotle Chocolate Layer Cake and Whiskey Bread Pudding. One dessert per table is plenty. You've been warned.
