If you want Maciel’s cuisine at 6:30 a.m., you’re going to get it. Beginning April 2.
Maciel’s Bodega will open April 2 at 584 Tillman Street Suite 1. Operating at the site of French Truck Coffee, Maciel’s Bodega will continue to be an espresso and artisan coffee shop, but it will now offer breakfast burritos, empanadas, boba tea and smoothies, beer and other snacks.
Like Maciel’s Highland, Maciel’s Bodega is a partnership between Manuel and Lisha Martinez and the ITS Fine Restaurant Group, which includes Rec Room, Bounty on Broad, Railgarten and Loflin Yard, operated by principals Taylor Berger and John Planchon.
Berger described Maciel’s Bodega as “grab and go things. Nothing made to order or like that. We’ll make burritos at night for in the morning and when we sell out, that’s it.”
He described one of their items, a Blazing Empanada, which is a sweet empanada: “A fried flour tortilla coated in sugar and cinnamon. You stuff it with this zesty cream cheese and fruit. And it’s ridiculous.”
Maciel’s Bodega also will provide free Wi-Fi and printing for its customers.
The restaurant eventually will produce salsa and fresh corn and flour tortillas for Maciel’s restaurants and wholesale/retail to the public.
The Bodega will partner with UberEats to provide delivery of certain menu items throughout the community.
Maciel’s Bodega will be open between 6:30 a.m. and 8 p.m. during the week and 8 am. To 8 p.m. on weekends.
