cccccOne of Austin’s best taco trucks, Veracruz All Natural, is teaming up with one of the city’s best coffee providers, Medici Roasting, to expand into a new alfresco dining space in Austin. Littlefield’s will be found at 2401 Winsted Lane in Tarrytown. The trucks will have a staggered opening: Medici starting on Monday, October 12 and Veracruz on Thursday, October 22.

Littlefield’s

Veracruz, run by co-owners Reyna and Maritza Vazquez, will serve its usual taco menu, including those migas, as well as quesadillas, juices, fruit smoothies, and aguas frescas, alongside a dedicated kids’ menu. Medici, run by co-owners Michael and Alison Vaclav, will serve coffee, pastries, and other potential food such as salads. Orders will be placed in person at each respective truck, and there will be options for contactless online ordering as well.

The alfresco courtyard space is owned by Lauren and David Kanne. The name stems from the previous owner of the space, Clyde Littlefield, who was a well-known track and football coach for University of Texas at Austin.

The space was designed with the help of architecture firm Thought Bar, which also worked with the Kannes to develop Littlefield’s earlier on during the project. There’s the patio with picnic tables, bar-style seating, and what is being described as a “little field” for children, with a lawn and nooks. As part of its novel coronavirus mitigation measures, guests are required to wear masks while inside the space, there will be hand sanitizer at every table.

Littlefield’s is Veracruz’s sixth location in the Austin area, after three trucks in East Austin, Menchaca Road, and Mueller, one physical restaurant in Round Rock, and the downtown Austin walk-up window at the Line Hotel on Congress Avenue.

This is Medici’s seventh location in Austin, which includes a new walk-up window at East Sixth hotel Inn Cahoots. The shop did close one of its downtown Austin locations, the cafe at 200 Congress Avenue at the base of the Austonian, sometime this year.

Medici’s hours at Littlefield’s will be from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. daily, with Veracruz from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. weekdays and then from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. on the weekends.
