Don't let all the reviews fool you like it did us. This place has a very nice, quiet location off the hustle and bustle of the Riverwalk but the food is less to be desired. We ordered the taco 6 pack and a coffee. The coffee was horrible and the tacos were very bland. We were very disappointed in the... More

My husband and I visited this cafe for breakfast since it was close to our hotel. Not happy with the food considering I paid $25 for two plates. We ordered the Santa Ana plate and we were not impressed. The beans had no flavor and the ranchero sauce tasted bad. I live in Texas and this was very disappointing. Wouldn't... More

We found this lovely cafe, 2 mins walk from the bustle of the Riverwalk and it was a gem! We wanted healthy, low calorie and their salads fitted the bill.

We just went here for lunch one day. The staff is sweet, of a little slow. The did was a nice surprise. I had a salad and or was huge and lovely. In all fairness, they did screw up or order, but it just meant or order arrived twice so it was not to our detriment. Would go back!

The staff were polite and the service was OK. I ordered pancakes and a latte. The pancakes were supposed to come with fresh fruits, but I only got one strawberry cut in four pieces. The latte was a bit burned and I had to remind them of my order. The outdoor seating was nice though and the pancake itself tasted... More

I was in San Antonio for a conference and started my day here each morning. They have the greatest breakfast tacos both classic and local flavors. Their coffee is tasty. Their pastries are fresh made and authentic. I highly recommend.

The kitchen was closed already but we were able to get some bottled drinks and sit in their very nice and cool dining area. Very nice and thoughtful girl behind the counter. Thanks for letting us hang out and cool off!!

The counter staff were very friendly; but be aware of the delay getting specialty coffees, a.k.a. latte. I counted the minutes between paying for the order and getting the coffee and it was over 30! Their system of serving and making coffee is not efficient.
