CiboDivino: Finally a Market & Cafe in West Dallas!

CiboDivino is a new market and café located in Oak Cliff and part of the new Sylvan Thirty complex. It’s more than just an eatery, as you’ll soon discover. CiboDivino is more like a new spot for life to happen in the area; we like the casual and calm yet “happening” environment.

Chef's case offerings - they change daily/seasonally. 

Most offerings are fairly healthy, too. 

Let’s start with the food, though. "Cibo divino" means “divine food” in Italian, so it’s no surprise that the food here is clearly the star. Finally! A neighborhood market was badly needed on the West side of town, and CiboDivino has quick picks you can grab and take with you. The chef’s case features the standard goodies we’ve come to expect from the likes of Central Market or Eatzi’s, such as roasted veggies, citrus and mint salmon, and lentil salad.

Sandwiches can be made to order, and they also serve breakfast during morning hours.

Next to the chef’s case is a cheese station complete with charcuterie.

No market would be complete without a coffee bar, so naturally the one here serves all the standards, accompanied by a luscious dessert case with gourmet cupcakes, cakes, cookies, and muffins.

 

Lemon angelfood, peanut butter cup, and decadent chocolate chunk are a few standouts. 

I sampled the vanilla latte. Wish I would have gone back for seconds.

The "market" section includes a host of dry goods, dressings, oils, mixes, snacks, and preserved items such as olives and pickles. You can even pick up fresh flowers here. 

Snackin'.

The sign... my sentiments exactly. 

The pizza oven is pretty much the centerpiece of the whole establishment – a work of art covered in gold tiles. Neapolitan style pies are served up beautifully, and delivery is said to be offered soon.

In typical Dallas fashion, a gold pizza oven. It's gorgeous!

Cheesey, saucey, basil-y perfection. 

There is also a wine cellar here, which is outstanding. Over 300 varieties from California and Italy are offered, and the owner and barkeeper are crazy-knowledgeable and obviously passionate about each one. Tastings for both beer and wine are available on Saturdays from noon to 3 pm, and if you happen to stroll by at the right time, you may even bump into a rep straight from the vineyard to talk with.


Some wines are also offered chilled. Check the refrigerated case for your favorite variety.

If you aren’t on the go, the dining experience here is delightful. The décor is modern and industrial, with a nod to wine country farm vibes. Tables dot the interior space where possible, and an open and airy bar is situated in the front corner of the restaurant. Huge garage-style windows serve as the corner walls, and they open them wide on pretty days, making the outside just as enjoyable for dining and sipping as the inside.


Although wine is the star here, the bar also serves several craft beers on tap.

The perfect spot for happy hour.

The scene becomes a family friendly one at dinner time, as little ones – even furry ones - play on the grassy knoll while parents sip and watch at the ample family-style picnic tables on the patio. After dark, you may see folks settling on the grass to enjoy wine and cheese. 


A safe place for kids to play, while grownups enjoy themselves too. 

CiboDivino is a breath of fresh air in Oak Cliff. Stop by and see what they have to offer!
