Our Restaurant

Since 1997, La Bodeguita continues to bring delicious food, cocktails and our Cuban flair to California Avenue.
We’re here for our neighbors & regulars during these trying times, providing a place where you can enjoy
a safe dining experience on our sidewalk patio or
our expanded street dining options while Cal Ave is closed to traffic.

We’re also here for those that prefer to take home a satisfying Cuban inspired meal (and maybe a mojito or 2)…

If you have developed a severe allergy to dishwashing, #LaBoToGo is available for pick up from our back patio!

Thank you! A reminder, we always appreciate your support, not just during this Thanksgiving holiday.

All of us at La Bodeguita del Medio are grateful for your continued support during this pandemic...and over the last 23 years! We are so fortunate to be a part of this incredible community.

Of course, we look forward to the day when the hospitality industry can stabilize, when we'll be able to visit with you more freely as we prepare and serve a full menu of great food & excellent cocktails.

Until that day, please remember that each time you dine out or order takeaway, you are not only helping a business survive, but you are keeping great people employed and supporting an extensive ecosystem of vendors and food suppliers, delivery drivers, farmers, fisher-peeps, vintners, distillers, and others. At the same time, you are generating sales taxes that support our schools, first responders, and other services essential which are essential to our community. #dineouttohelpout

So, on behalf of the staff at La Bodeguita & #LaBoToGo, along with everyone else you help to support with your patronage, thank you.

We appreciate you, always.
