The Comfort Cafe

Nestled in the gorgeous Oak tree laden Los Patios, The Comfort Café needs no introduction.

Top Review: “This place has earned 6 (out of 5) stars in my book & nothing less would be appropriate.

The food was AMAZING. My husband had stuffed waffles and I had the Lone Star (eggs, bacon, sausage, and pancakes.) My pancakes where REALLY fluffy, full of flavor and perfectly cooked, which is what I wanted. The sausage was also very special and the bacon & eggs where normal & very delicious.

We found out LATER* that you “pay what you can.” As a non-profit, all proceeds go to a program that helps recovering addicts turn their lives around. All of the employees there are participants of this program & are volunteering their time to bring us the delicious food.

Say no more!!! We stopped at the gift shop and tried to get as much as we could. $$$

I love this concept & I hope it gets duplicated because we need more places like this in the world.

My heart is full, my belly is full.” – Sue Ellen

La Fonda on Main

La Fonda on Main is a Mexican restaurant that has been around for decades. It is located in south San Antonio, but it’s worth the drive as this establishment serves one of the best Migas tacos ever.

Top Review: “I would rate 6-stars if I could. The food was AMAZING, and tasty and the portion was huge. We ordered in the brunch menu and it was magnifique.

La Panaderia

If you want to have a more authentic breakfast experience then La Panaderia is the place.

La Panaderia in San Antonio was established in 2013 by two brothers from Mexico City. They have been baking for over two decades and learned the art from their Mother who was also a baker.

They serve delicious Mexican pastries such as conchas, orejas, as well as croissants. Definitely try the Monkey Bread or the Nutella Cruffin!

Their mix of Mexican-inspired breakfasts and handy to-go pastries make them the ideal way to start a day!

Top Review: “This is a must-stop in San Antonio. The long lines outside tell you in well in advance that you are in for some good food. We both got egg dishes one with ham and cheese the other with chorizo. Both dishes had eggs nestled within huge flaky croissants. I had a side of amazing rice and corn.  We also got six different pastries to share with family.  Among our favorites was the Tequila almond croissant and blueberry bear claw, yum-yum-yum! Even with long lines outside, there was available seating inside.”Donna B.

We ordered a large cinnamon roll and when I say large it was HUGE. We ate less than half of it and took the rest of it home. We also ordered two 1851 breakfast platters. Both of them were delicious. Our waitress Jessica was awesome! She was working very hard and getting stuff done the whole time. Great service. I recommend stopping by if you’re in the neighborhood!”Austin G.

It was delish and I love the potatoes that came worth it. I also ordered a vanilla latte which was delicious as well. They have several different kinds of crepes on their menu so next time I want to try one of those! I highly recommend giving this place a try. Their menu has a ton of different stuff on it so I’m sure anyone can find something at this restaurant!”Jessica N.

La Villita Cafe is a great option for those who want to try something different.

This breakfast spot in north San Antonio serves French cuisine as well as dishes from other cultures such as the Cuban sandwich with eggs or chilaquiles served on blue corn tortillas.

Top Review: “Made the trip from Austin for a concert and grabbed breakfast tacos here because it was close to the hotel. I’m so glad we stopped here before hitting the road back home. The egg and potato taco had fluffy eggs and crispy potatoes cooked to perfection. The brisket avocado taco was the star, though, with melt-in-your-mouth brisket. The tortillas are soft and flavorful, and the salsa adds just a tiny bit of heat.”Hannah F.

I got a veggie omelet with sausage added. I walked in hungry and left with leftovers. A side of Hashbrowns comes in a big plate! I had to share it. The waffle was perfectly crisp on the outside and soft on the inside, they serve hot syrup with it.

Top Review: “I can’t say enough great things about this place. Awesome service, great location, perfect atmosphere, to die for food and that’s no joke. I would risk going out in a zombie apocalypse to eat here. The first bite of the French Toast made me say OMG and my wife laughed and said that’s what she ordered. I made her share just for making me taste it (can’t eat just one bite). My sausage sandwich was good but the grits y’all, they stole the show. I’m doing this review the day after while I’m sitting in the restaurant for a second day in a row.”Louie D.
