Comal has been a community mainstay since opening in downtown Berkeley in 2012. Recognized for its excellence by Michelin Bib Gourmand & SF Chronicle Top 100, Comal serves delicious regional Mexican food specializing in masa-based dishes, wood-fired hearth cooking, craft cocktails and agave spirits. Comal’s food is seasonal, and ingredient driven.
Comal Next Door opened in Berkeley in 2018 and quickly established its own identity as a neighborhood fixture, serving burritos, tacos and tortas as well as house made aguas frescas, salads, and now cocktails to go as well!
