San Antonio, TX.

Where to ...

 

 

 

Food:

 

  • Ocho: Downtown – river walk Cuban/Latin – I like to go for brunch or lunch I wouldn’t recommend dinner it’s more of a bar and a pretty cool one

 

  • Max’s Wine Dive: Quarry Village - brunch is their best menu! Fried chicken and champagne, truffled Max & cheese, or chicken and waffles! Also fun as bar. (but when it comes to food brunch is their speciality)

 

  • Cured: Historic Pearl - brunch/lunch/dinner – but closed Sundays (not for picky eaters)

 

 

  • The Boiler House: Historic Pearl: I actually recommend their brunch menu more than any other time of the day - Comfort food.

 

  • Bird Bakery: (Broadway) - Best cupcakes in town and obsessed with their turkey sandwich 

  • Perry’s: The Shops at La Cantera - lunch/dinner- Classic Steakhouse, try their Mac and cheese

 

  • Bakery Lorraine: Historic Pearl - All day! Coffee, desserts and bistro, don’t be surprised if the place is packed! it is very good and everyone knows that. especially during the weekends (worth it) 

 

  • Whiskey Cake: The Shops at La Cantera - pretty cool place with all natural ingredients. 

 

  • Barbaro: Pizza - one of the best Pizzas in town, the place is rustic so be prepared for that (its not shiny new but so good)

  • Supper: At Hotel Emma: Feeling a bit more fancy? Supper is the top restaurant (in my opinion) for fine cuisine.

  • Southerleigh: Historic Pearl - good comfort food, with in house brewed beer - Love their corn bread!
