Empanadas & Coffee, What Could Be Better?
I can't begin to praise Café Tola highly enough. What an absolute gem. Located about 4 blocks west of Wrigley Field is a tiny, vibrant empanada shop serving up some incredible bites. Not to mention the full-service espresso bar, all in a shop that's about as big as a closet. Everyone that works there is just as friendly as the next, and in the summertime they have an adorable outdoor patio. On the weekends, they have specialty empanadas, like peanut butter and jelly (insane!) and Nutella. My regular favorites are chicken salsa verde, and recently the roasted garlic and pork. Delicious and surprisingly filling. So don't let this little place slip by you -- it is well worth your time and money.
