A new form of delivery is coming to the Jewish-Mexican fusion restaurant Rustika Cafe & Bakery.

Customers within a 2-mile radius of the cafe—located at at 3237 Southwest Fwy., Houston—will be given the option to have their food brought by Coco, a human-operated delivery bot, when ordering through DoorDash. After the order is placed, Coco will delivery it within 15 minutes, according to a March 29 press release.


Rustika is the first Houston area restaurant to use Coco's services, though the company plans to expand with other partnerships. Menu items at Rustika include chilaquiles, migas, matzah ball soup, traditional omelets, sandwiches and salads as well as a variety of desserts, such as cakes, cookies and pies.
