Neighborhoods: Oak Lawn
Latin bakery and cafe is known for its pastries and coffee. – When the regulars are Latin America natives, you know the food is authentic. This bakery and cafe--done up in orange and canary yellow--is a staple for Oak Lawn residents looking for a break from the Starbucks routine. Diners cozy up in window booths to sip imported coffees, relish merengue cookies and read the paper. Groups sit at long tables to savor a leisurely meal of corn turnovers filled with beef and melted cheese while couples tango to Latin jazz on the hardwood floors. Most leave with churro sticks boxed to go to savor the treats at home.
Awesome Breakfast Omlette – I reside in Austin Texas and was in Dallas for the National PRIMA conference. I ventured over to Zaguan and ate an omlette and had a cup of joe. I had to buy a bag of the coffee to take home it was so good. The omlette was the best I have ever had, and I told the chef that as well.
Great place..............Very Friendly.
BAD FOOD- period – I noticed that the restaurant was dirty when we walked in the door- flies hoovering over the breads and deserts...we ordered the Empanadas, which were ok but then everything else was downhill from there. The Latin Crepes are nothing like the menu picture-the chicken in them had a bad taste & it was cheese overkill. The ropa vieja-which was the worst I've ever tried-was salty, and the roll that came with it was tasteless and dry. The deserts also resembled nothing like the photos on their website- they were small, thrown-together deserts that seemed to be there for days. This place is NOT recommended! We will never go back (obviously).
Best latin food, "ropa vieja" and "empanadillas" in town. – Is a bakery, very interesting and very good breads and pastries. But is also an excellent restaurant. Empanadillas are great. The "ropa vieja" excellent. My wife tried the fish plate and was also excellent. Great coffee. Great prices.
Small location, easy to find, easy parking. Will rate as one of the top two latin restaurants in Dallas.
One of my top two restaurants in DFW. Great place to take friends for a taste of latin food. They have a menu with pictures that is very helpful for those that don't speak spanish or fail to understand what is that delicious "ropa vieja".
And at the end of your visit, you can take some breads and pastries home.
Amazing Breakfast! Wow! – You have to go here for breakfast! They make this omlette - like dish that has the corn consistancy of the empanadas with filling that is out of this world! The worlds best breakfast in Dallas! He makes his own croissants Cachito's and Pasteries as well . Try the tea or columbian coffee and you will know why the latin are so passionate! Wow, bring LIFE back into your BREAKFAST AND GO TO ZAGUAN!
Breakfast all day at the best bakery in Dallas! – This is such a fantastic place! Did you know they serve their D Magazine award winning breakfast dishes all day? You walk in and on the left you can watch the chef pick from an assortment of the freshest ingredients for the dishes he prepares behind a glass wall. On the right are ample seating with free wi-fi and the best ice tea and smiley service you have ever had in a bright sunny dining area. They also have a small patio if you like a little sunshine with your fresh croissant or pastry that they make at the shop. Call for catering or party trays as well, they are fantastic! This is privately owned and operated so don?t be fooled by the polish and perfection of this place, it really is your corner bakery with the Baker directly from Spain.
The best kept secret for latin cafes – Wow, If you haven?t tried the empanadas, go now. I went on the recommendation below and they are fantastic! LOTS of meat in them and the perfect mild blend of not so spicy spices. Their Cachapa was awarded by D magazine for breakfast ( which they serve all day AND D voted them best Latin lunch a few years back. On Citysearch they got the best of in Bakery and once you walk in you will know why. Beautiful pastries and breads all displayed next to the seating area so you can decide what to take home after your meal for that midnight snack. From all of the authentic Latin food places in the Dallas city, this has the largest variety of cakes, pastries, breads and dishes. This really is a must try, I don?t know why more people haven?t written a review on them. Perhaps they want to keep it their secret! Word is out! Go now while you can get a seat!!
A "gotta try it" place – W..H..A..T.....A... ..G..R..E..A..T.....S..P..O..T..! My partner and I just found this amazing place, really really incredible food. We've tried a few dishes - all very delicious - but our favorite is the Cheese and Meat Chachapa. It is a yellow corn based, moist and thick outer "shell" with cheese and meat inside. The sweet and salty play up the taste buds. Its a very savory meal. I like too the chips served with it. I thought it was going to be spicy, but its not. Its simply an amazing new taste. Leave room though - they have an incredible array of desserts and pastries. The exceptional display offers meringes, some cake, and a few other baked goods. One of their breads looks a little unusual but is a loaf of bread with guava baked in. Whatever it is, the food is so incredible. Another treat - there is a "two-fer" coupon in the 2008 Passbook. As if that weren't enough, the staff is extremely pleasant and goes out of their way. A MUST try!
Amazing food and atmosphere – Amazing cafe and bakery located off of Oak Lawn. The owner is extremely friendly and the food and natural juices are amazing. They have wonderful homemade breads and desserts as well as great breakfast food.
If you are in the mood for lunch or dinner, I highly recommend the Cachapa (a sweet-corn turnover filled with shredded beef or chicken and cheese) or the Zaguan Sandwich (shredded beef, sweet onions, homemade bread and cheese). The Arepas are wonderful as well, as are the homemade black beans and plantain chips.
It is our favorite place in Dallas and I highly recommend it. You won't be disappointed!
Homey, cozy bakery in Uptown with international, freshly baked goods and coffee galore. – In Short
Pronounced "zah-GWAN" after the terra-cotta and pebble mosaic entryways in Latin mansions, this charming spot is popular for continental breakfast. Offerings include croissants and little French and Latin pastries. Fruit tartlets, eclairs and guava and cheese breads beg to be plucked from their long, glass display case. Fried churros (similar to sopapillas) and hot chocolate combine for a nice winter snack. Warm corn turnovers, filled with meats or sweets, are also served.
