NileGuide Expert tip:
The arepas are great, but the empanadas are just as good.
Not to be confused with "noise" the English translation of Sonido is "sound", which is fitting because this effortlessly cool café is about chilling out to the soft tunes of South America. Owned and operated by a young Colombian couple, the café primarily serves arepas, which are round corn breads that can be stuffed with a myriad of ingredients including cheese, beans, and shredded beef. The beef and olive empanadas are also a house special. Perhaps the shining light is the Colombian hot chocolate, which can be ordered by the jug. Sticky and sweet, it's the best conclusion to a meal. The café itself is full of retro furniture and old Latino album covers, which suits the no fuss surrounds.
