Besties Empanadas


Besties focuses on bringing you that extra you deserve: enjoying good food, and also living the whole European culinary experience. The new Alpharetta store breathes European chic, and allows you to relax in a friendly environment, inside the store or on its patio, savoring  not only 28 types of empanadas, including vegan options, but also European and Argentine ‘tapas’, and real Belgian waffles. On weekends, you can even watch live how your Belgian waffles are made. 

The owner, Carina Balonchard, an Argentine-European entrepreneur and globe-trotter, has lived and worked in different parts of the world. Her collection of unforgettable culinary experiences from all those places is now coming home to Georgia.

She 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, she decided she was 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 now: Besties will continue to provide pick-up and delivery. And now we you can also enjoy food with friends in the cozy store or on the patio.
