Pacha's Coffee House?

We will be visiting our daughter in Austin 3 weeks from today. Our daughter is Bolivian and we used to live in Santa Cruz (More like Brazil than Bolivia.) In Austin 360 I searched for Bolivian restaurants and Pacha's came up. I would love to find out if they serve 2 Bolivian specialities that we sorely miss: saltenas and sopa de mani. Bolivian cusine is not an easy one to find and would like to know if anyone has been to Pacha's, their opinion and its address. Thanking you in advance.
Our first stop from the airport will be Rosita's Al Pastor!

  1. I haven't been there in a while (3 years), but if memory serves, I only recall usual Austin-y coffee house fare, espresso drinks, coffee, teas, croissants, muffins, etc. Maybe they expanded their line, but I think someone would have responded here if they had.

    1. They do have some small plates that are not typical Mexican or U.S. They seem South American to me, but I do not know if they are Bolivian or not. You could always give them a call...

      1. They are really more of a coffee house first, most of their food is pre prepared in the cooler. I know they were doing an ambitous prix-fixe menu for awhile but I don't recall seeing that last time I was in.
        For what it's worth they do have the best tasting coffee in austin.
