Torta Shop

A torta is a Mexican sandwich found in small shops throughout Mexico. All of our tortas are made from scratch using the finest ingredients – local and organic whenever possible. Our bread is provided by Macrina and is more similar to ciabatta than the traditional bolillo. All tortas come with chips & salsa and escabeche, and are also available as burritos!

Tuesday – Friday, 11:30 – 2:00
(Now also featuring daily BURRITO specials!)
