Café Latino (more pupusas!) – CLOSEd

Posted by RPP 8 Mar 2008 4 Comments


I don’t know if this place is new or if I have just been oblivious, but I noticed Café Latino today at 3315 Guess Rd. and decided to stop in and give it a try.

I tried both the cheese and pork pupusas, and both were good. I prefer the pork pupusa at Orellana, but I think Cafe Latino has the upper hand on the cheese pupusa. The cheese quesadilla was mixed with egg and was just OK. The beef empanada was very tasty — not the best I have had, but worth getting. Overall, a solid North Durham choice, and I will definitely return.

    You know, I’ve always wanted to try this place everytime I went northward. There generally isn’t a lot said about the places on Guess and North Roxboro (passing the Duke and Roxboro merge).

    I remember Le Coco (North Roxboro x Latta/Infinity) from a while back. Now it’s the Eno River Eatery. I think it’s still the same food, though. The Italian Pizzeria in the Willowdaile Shopping center also has good pizza that’s not NY style. Their subs need some work, but the pizza delivers.

    Ok, enough of my rambling.
