Very quaint and a relaxing atmosphere, but a bit pricey. From omelets, fruits, hot and cold cereal, and bread/muffins.

The Brunch is very reasonably priced and offers many options in a beautiful old hotel. In addition to the restaurant, we took a brief tour of the hotel, which we hadn't done before (it's haunted) and the room rates are reasonable to be right next...More

Located in the Historic Menger Hotel near the Alamo. Beautiful "elegant" restaurant with very reasonable lunch prices. Very attentive service. Had 1/2 chicken salad sandwich with cup of their signature tortilla soup. Their twist is that they use beef instead of chicken in the soup....More

Built as an addition to the original hotel and later remodeled by San Antonio architect Atlee B. Ayres in 1912, the Colonial Room Restaurant reflects the prevailing neoclassical style of its time. Decades of elaborate balls and parties have been hosted in this room.Among the celebrities who have dined here are Presidents Grant and McKinley, Robert E. Lee, and French actress Sarah Bernhardt. The Colonial Room Restaurant's famous mango ice cream was served at both of President Clinton’s inaugurations. Open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, the Colonial Room Restaurant features a fabulous noontime brunch and traditional entrees such as prime rib au jus and lamb shank with linguini. Don't miss the popular Sunday brunch buffet, which tastes even better at a table in the garden courtyard.
