Meet Tortilla!

After months of anticipation, the Commons’ newest café finally slid open their windows on Friday, April 24. People packed the park to get a taste of Tortilla.

According to Operations Manager Heather Marlin, “customers can expect to receive the same great food and experience that they encounter at our food trucks. A trip to the Commons Cafe just means that they have the added bonus of a carousel ride after their meal!”

While they may be famous for their burritos and bowls, there is more to their menu. Next time you’re there, check out some of their more unique items like a Torta, a Mexican-style sandwich packed with meat and veggies, or churro, a cinnamon sugar fried-dough dessert. If your appetite is more petite, the café now offers smaller sides like corn on the cob and French fries that make a perfect late-afternoon snack.

Their new brick and mortar location also touts a full kids menu featuring entrées like chicken nuggets and tacos, along with a slew of Vegetarian and Gluten Free options.

Heather’s advice for Tortilla first timers: try the tacos.

 “The tacos are great because your order of three can be topped differently, allowing you to discover many different flavor combinations. Things that we think can't be missed are our marinated grilled chicken, fresh guacamole, and the gringo sauce (a mayonnaise-based pepper sauce).”

However, Columbus Commons Program Manager Ashley Lester thinks the mango salsa is their can’t-miss item.

What culinary creation can you expect to see next from Tortilla? Probably something that is suited for an early morning meal, as their breakfast menu is currently on the horizon.

There are several other improvements that will be made in the coming weeks, including the addition of two center windows.

Marlin says “this will allow for greater visibility and communication between team members and customers. We are also adding descriptions of the toppings that will have the photos and nutritional info. “

Join us in welcoming Tortilla to the Commons! You can grab lunch or dinner Monday through Saturday, 11am to 8pm.
