Our story

How frytanga
café started

Frytanga Café is a testament to our family’s love for Colombian heritage. Our story begins with the journey of our grandmother, a resilient woman with a gift for crafting the perfect empanadas. Years ago, she began selling her empanadas to this very café. Every empanada carried her dream of selling them in her own store someday.

That dream is now a reality in the form of Frytanga Café, The café stands as a testament to her vision and her dedication to sharing authentic Colombian flavors with the community. Here, her empanadas and other cherished family recipes continue to bring satisfaction to every guest, just as they did years ago.

Coach Jhonny

The guiding force behind Frytanga Café is none other than Jonathan Sanchez, or as some like to call him: Coach Jhonny. A respected figure in our local community & a dedicated Junior Varsity coach at Ossining High School. With years of coaching soccer under his belt, Jhonny has a passion for nurturing young talent & emphasizing team spirit both on and off the field.

His love for community engagement extends beyond the soccer field to the heart of Frytanga Café. Jhonny has found a way to blend his two passions - the vibrant culinary heritage of his Colombian roots & his commitment to community service. With a heart as warm as the coffee he serves, Jhonny continues to give back to the community of Ossining, creating a welcoming gathering spot at Frytanga while inspiring young athletes at Ossining High School.
