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.
