A café featuring empanadas is slated to open in downtown Lancaster by the end of February.
Empanada Gourmet is taking a spot at 46 N. Prince St., the former home of Dough & Co., which closed in December.
Empanada Gourmet is owned by Nury Vargas and Ivanna Arambillete, a mother and daughter who launched their business two years ago by opening a stand at Lancaster Marketplace along Fruitville Pike in Manheim Township. They also have a stand at Lancaster Central Market.
Empanada Gourmet features a variety of Uruguayan-style savory and sweet empanadas, including vegan, vegetarian and dessert options.
