I’m so pleased to welcome two very talented ladies… Jacqueline and Alyssa from 20 Something SA on the blog today! These gals are always up-and-about San Antonio and are excellent resources for the latest happenings and eateries across the city. Today they are sharing with you three favorite San Antonio dining spots!
When it comes to brunch, dinner, lunch and drinks, we’re always scoping out new places to visit. During the past few months, we’ve come across three restaurants that we’ve fallen in love with and frequent regularly. A quaint coffee house, a pink building overflowing with brunch specials and the one of the oldest bars in San Antonio all made our list.
Commonwealth Coffeehouse, located across the street from the University of the Incarnate Word, is our go to spot for enjoying a latte in a cat mug and feeling right at home. Commonwealth opened February 2015 and has already found a place in our hearts. The croissants, baked by French chefs, are made fresh every morning and they sell quick! We keep going back to Commonwealth for the tarragon chicken salad and delicious tomato basil soup, but ultimately, we go back for the relaxing atmosphere.
One weekend we learned that it was hard to track down a great Saturday brunch. Then, we came across Liberty Bar, and our brunch lives were forever changed. The mimosas are $3.50 (regularly $7 during Sunday brunch) and our favorite entree is the huevos rancheros! The Liberty Bar is in a gorgeous, pink building and at 1111 S Alamo St, a great spot to start a fun day in Southtown!
The Esquire Tavern is a must when it comes to River Walk dining and avoiding tourist crowds. As one of San Antonio’s oldest bars, it continues to raise the bar. If you are going for drinks, stop by during happy hour with pricing as low as $3. The Esquire Tavern introduced a new menu in April 2015. Our favorites are the citrus trio ceviche, pork loin with blue cheese grits and the fried apple pie. Please, don’t forget dessert! Esquire Tavern makes all its pastries in-house.
