Bolsa Mercado Cafe and Grocer Opens

What to Buy at the New Oak Cliff Shop

bolsa mercado cafe and grocer!

Lucia. Mesa. Campo. Dinner at Oddfellows. Brunch at Smoke. Our love affair with Oak Cliff runneth over.

One more reason to cross the Trinity? Bolsa Mercado.

Last month, the people behind beloved restaurant Bolsa quietly opened a cafe-cum-minimarket offering everything from chai lattes to freshly picked eggplant to free Wi-Fi.

Snuggle into the vintage sofa and chow down on an oatmeal-cranberry scone or roasted beet salad. Or load up a grocery sack with grits, olive oil, stinky cheese, and tons more local, farm-fresh, and organic labels, as well as 45 beers and 200 wines.

Can’t find your fix? Jot down requests on a communal wish list.

Or just follow our lead.

JJ&B Jellies, Jams & Butters$9
From cab sauv jelly to apple pie jam (drizzle it warm over vanilla ice cream), the small-batch, seasonal spreads made in Dallas kick the appetizer or dessert tray up a notch.

Tranquilo Texas Red Table Wine, $14
Bottled in Lubbock, the versatile vino is backed by Lone Star State Master Sommelier Drew Hendricks.

Carlo’s World Famous Pasta, $6
The precise proportions of pasta (we’re all about the spinach angel hair and roasted garlic linguine) hand-packaged on SMU Boulevard.

Well Coffee Roasters$10
Love the house java? This is what they’re brewing. Beans are microroasted in Deep Ellum.

Beth Marie’s Old Fashioned Ice Cream$5
Sweet lovers look no further than the retro, Denton-based soda fountain that churns standout flavors like After Dinner Mint.

We love it.
