The business was born in 1999 when our country, Colombia, went into a deep economic crisis. Faced with lack of stable employment and an uncertain future, we found inspiration in the recipes left behind by Ernesto’s mother. From these recipes, we built a business form the ground up, gained financial and labor independence, and found an immense satisfaction from feeding people our homemade food.
After immigrating to the United States, the idea of transplanting our business developed slowly over a nine year period, and now we have our doors open to our new clientele in San Jose, CA.
The name “Milohas” comes from the Spanish words “mil hojas,” which mean one thousand layers, just like the dough in our pastries. We hope you enjoy each one of those layers we prepared with love and the best ingredients available.
Milohas is a family-owned business that offers fresh Colombian empanadas and baked goods. Our food is prepared by hand daily with high-‐quality ingredients. We don’t use preservatives or additives, just grandma’s recipes. Try our Colombian empanadas with coffee for an energizing breakfast, with a side salad for a nourishing lunch, or with a cup of tea for a light dinner.
