Female owner was irrate when I parked in a parking area behind bldg. There were no signs posted forbidding customers from parking. Parking in area is impossible therefore I assumed the parking spot was an option for paying customers. Never tasted the food, never will. They miserably failed the attitude test.

I have enjoyed the Argentinian empandas and alfajores from this cozy Fitler Square cafe for years. Chef Jezabel makes delicious and authentic Argentinian recipes that keep bringing me back. It doesn't hurt that Gavin's Cafe also sells La Colombe coffee which is one of my favorites in Philadelphia.

I've gone twice. Everything is made from scratch behind the counter in the morning, all the breads, the empanadas, fresh squeezed OJ. It's very good.

Found this place by chance after biking by it a couple of times. Very thirsty and hot from riding, and frozen lemonade with fresh blueberries blended in was majorly refreshing! (also snuck in a scoop of ice cream). The owner Jezebel was so friendly and personable that I want to stop in again just to hear her laugh :) Nice to have a little outside table and watch the tennis in the park. Came by again and had fresh iced tea, for the price of bottled at the store. A cute little cafe! I salute and respect anyone trying to make a small business work! Can't wait to try the homemade food, looked great!

The only thing wrong with Gavin's Cafe is that it isn't closer to my house. I went on a beautiful fall morning and had a perfect cup of coffee with one spinach and one ham and cheese empanada. The sunny interior is a gem, with the old oak bar from its former incarnation lovingly restored. It's hard to imagine that such a serene spot was once probably filled with noise and smoke, but if the space had to sit empty for 20 years until Chef Careaga found and transformed it, we’ve all won. I left with a half dozen empanadas to share for lunch, a copy of the menu, and the firm intention of returning very, very soon.

This place is a solid, interesting find, in normally-boring-as-watching-paint-dry Philadelphia. Their empanadas are wholesome-tasting, and definitely homemade, although the flavor isn't quite as pronounced as that of other empanadas I've had. The cookies shown in the photos with the coconut around the edge are maicenitas, and are made of homemade shortbread with dulce de leche in sandwiched between, and then coconut rolled along the outside. They're GOOD, and are worth the visit alone. Call ahead or go early though, because they were running out of some things when I visited (on a Sunday afternoon, I think).
