Why Come? House-made South American specialties are delivered in a relaxed setting with a quick-service style.
Which dishes are best? Paila (Chilean for “little skillet”) scrambles and coffee drinks at breakfast, and plump empanadas, pork sandwiches, and Chilean-style shepherd’s pie at lunch. The house-made jams and pastries are exquisite—especially the alfajores, powdered sugar–dusted shortbread sandwich cookies, which are available at restaurants and stores across the Bay Area.
What’s the vibe? Rich colors create a welcoming and uplifting atmosphere. The airy, well-lit space is framed with modern bone (an industrial ceiling) with homey touches (kitchen knickknacks and a long raw wood communal table). Staff are as sweet as their pastries. Order at the counter, and food is brought to you.
How much? $3.95–$9.95, plus a $16 rib eye.
When is it open? Breakfast and lunch Mon.–Fri. 7 a.m.–4 p.m.
Where is it? 3003 Oak Rd., Walnut Creek, (925) 954-8300, saboresdelsursf.com.
