Newly opened on Broadway, where it replaces Bravo Carne Asada, is San Telmo Argentine Cafe. Serving South American specialities, the all-day eatery is owned by Fabricio and Pamela Prencesvalle, both of whom are native to Buenos Aires. They offer a variety of fried or baked empanadas, as well as sandwiches stuffed with everything from housemade choripan sausage to grilled pork with chimichurri and crispy chicken milanesa. There are also breakfast sandwiches, gourmet burgers and salads, plus fresh pastries and desserts ranging from quince tarts to flan with dulce de leche. Coffee; beer and wine are poured, and jarred eggplant and chimichurri preserves are also for sale.
Of their decision to open the cafe, Pamela tells Eater, “We wanted to bring high quality and authentic Argentine food to San Diego in a fast-casual way.” San Telmo Argentine Cafe is open Monday to Saturday from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m.
