Here's a look inside Sugar Skull Cafe, the newest addition to culinary theme park Trinity Groves. The Mexico City-inspired fast-casual spot from Casa Rubia owner Jonn Baudoin is the first place at TG to offer breakfast. Morning options include breakfast tacos, chilaquiles, and a version of migas quite different from those found at most Tex-Mex spots — accompanied by little corn cakes made with fresh masa. Lunchtime brings a whole host of other taco options from chef Ricardo Ledezma, from simple street-style affairs to more involved versions including a cornmeal-crusted fish taco with cabbage and crema.
Coffee is taken seriously here, with macchiatos, cortados, and cappuccinos from a La Marzocco espresso machine, with beans sourced from the Design District's Ascension Coffee. There are plenty of sweets on offer to pair with said coffee drinks, too, including house-baked pan dulce (Mexican sweet bread) and churros.
Sugar Skull Cafe is currently open for breakfast at 7 a.m. weekdays (8 a.m. on the weekends); lunch is being offered from 11 a.m.-4 p.m. daily. Dinner service with an expanded menu will launch next Monday, April 20.
