Where to Eat in San Antonio, Texas

BIRD Bakery

Okay, this one is a definite favorite. They have amazing sandwiches that are classics with a twist, such at their PB&JJ or Nostalgic Grilled Cheese! My favorite is the California Veggie that features their toasted homemade seeded bread 😛 Each sandwich comes with a pickle & side of chips, as seen in picture below.

Equally as good, BIRD has truly mouth-watering baked goods !! I am obsessed with the Sea Salt Peanut Butter Bar and the Monster Cookie. My sister loves their cupcakes!

More so than solely their food, BIRD has a wonderfully warm & inviting atmosphere. This bakery is a must-try if you’re in Alamo Heights.

Note: Be sure to specify if you want your bread toasted, as otherwise they will serve it soft & fresh. Do whatever you like best!

Revolution Juice & Coffee

Ah, my favorite part about Revolution is the unique environment they create. Revolution recently moved to a bigger & more spacious location, which allows their space to be much more open! All their walls are white—I love this because the sunlight floods in, and nothing is too distracting. Thus, it’s just a great place to crank out your homework on a Sunday.

While I was there, I ordered an açaí bowl! Perfectly creamy with awesome toppings & homemade granola. Perfect energy boost to studying. Revolution also has a huge variety of cold pressed juices. I’d suggest The Cure+ or Black Gold. Revolution has locations in Alamo Heights, Houston, and Southtown.

This Texas bistro is located right on the downtown riverwalk. Grab a table right outside, and you’ll have a view of the river with all the people, restaurants, and events that come with it 🙂

I’d recommend their guacamole, as your waiter makes it right in front of you with fresh lime, orange juice, and serrano pepper. I also loved their appetizer dish of polenta, goat cheese, and wild field mushrooms!

Supper at Hotel Emma is always a favorite when I travel to San Antonio. It’s located right in the Pearl, which is a location I’m absolutely in love with. Supper has delicious Blistered Carrots (an appetizer topped with hazelnuts, carrot butter, and miso dressing) and Crispy Cauliflower (topped with broccoli, chile peanuts, and caramel popcorn).

Hotel Emma used to be a brewery, and it’s stunning to see how they rebuilt the building to make it a hotel. I love sitting outside at Supper to enjoy the view of the San Antonio River and the beautiful Pearl.

Oh. My. Gosh.

Kuma’s ice cream may be the most “extra” ice cream I’ve ever eaten, which says a lot because yo’ girl has eaten a lot of ice cream in her life.

At Kuma, their menu is really just a [long] list of all their ingredients. You pick an ice cream flavor, 5 toppings, and a sauce. They then create a magnificent waffle cone. Yes, it’s literally a waffle that’s wrapped around ice cream. This cone is a trendy item; it is definitely a must-do when you are in San Antonio.

My cone (back of photo) features coffee ice cream with marshmallow, slivered almonds, chocolate chips, and coconut flakes topped with chocolate sauce.

Lick Honest Ice Creams

Lick’s San Antonio location is in the Pearl; they also have a location in Austin. The most unique flavors I’ve ever seen are found at Lick. No matter how crazy they sound, I love their Roasted Beets & Fresh Mint, Goat Cheese with Thyme & Honey, and the Too Hot Chocolate.

As a small business, Lick claims to have an honest policy about ice cream with the most pure, wholesome materials & ingredients. They are also sure to source locally for their foods! Plus, they also have a variety of dairy-free (vegan) ice creams, too.
