About us

Besties focuses on bringing you that extra you deserve: enjoying good food, and also living the whole European culinary experience. The Alpharetta bistro breathes European chic, and allows you to relax in a friendly environment, inside the bistro or on its patio, savoring  more than 30 flavors of empanadas, including vegan options. You can also enjoy European ‘tapas’, and real Belgian waffles. 

The owners, Carina Balonchard and Weren De Vliegher, Argentine-European entrepreneurs and globe-trotters, have lived and worked in different parts of the world. Their collection of unforgettable culinary experiences from all those places is now available in Georgia.

They started the business in 2019 doing local delivery and nationwide shipping of empanadas and Belgian waffles. Costumers quickly were asking for a sit-down space to hang out with friends. Taking that customer feedback to heart, they decided they were going to open a in person experience store in the area.

That waffle aroma you can smell from afar when when you walk in Brussels, or those flaky empanadas in an infinite choice of flavors on the go in Argentina: now Atlantans can enjoy it here. And don’t forget the chocolate desserts!

The offering is double: Besties will continue to provide pick-up and delivery. And now we you can also have an in-person Besties experience in the cozy bistro.
