Owner and Chef, Solange Brunet is more than a 20 year resident of Missoula, graduate of Hobart William Smith College, Certified Master Gardener, participant of courses by the Culinary Institute of America and soccer enthusiast.

Born in Buenos Aires, Argentina, from Scandinavian and Catalonian descent, Solange brings new Tastes to cosmopolitan Missoula.

As an avid cook, she shares with us her passion at The Empanada Joint and confirms her mantra offering :

Argentine food that bites the senses with flavors in small packages

In the competitive field of the food industry, she's gone where many feared to go and opened this charming Argentine Cafe.  Now, we will be able to taste her passion, from meat to vegetables or local flavors like locally sourced grass feed beef and pork sausage, we can enjoy Empanadas for every taste.

Her sport of interest is soccer and honoring her descendants, she admits to be a fan of the Argentine National team in every World Cup and the Barcelona team, with her hero Leo Messi, present on several wall posters as well as other vistas of Argentina's main attractions: Iguazu Falls and Patagonia. 

However, she never lost sight of her passion for fine dining. She knew that, in order to create healthy dishes, using only fresh ingredients available, she would have to establish her own restaurant.

Chef Solange opened the doors in the Spring of 2012 and critics and customers have been raving ever since.

The Empanada Joint is committed to serving only the finest foods, made with fresh ingredients. All of our dishes are made from scratch. our comfortable decor and friendly service create a memorable experience.
