I took my daughters here for a homeschool group meetup. The coffee was great, but what really surprised me was (a) the size of this venue: it's huge!, (b) the comfort: so many plush couches and armchairs, and (c) the menu: aside from a full coffee/tea menu, they've also got a really delectable-looking food menu, with everything from luscious looking...

Where to begin! Super cute and cozy coffeehouse with the best Eggs Benedict and Bottomless Mimosas!! The staff is friendly and quick! It's always busy so plan accordingly! Their outdoors patio is perfect for a sunny day! Great place to catch up or study. Will definetly return!

Great place for brunch. Love the food, coffee, and mimosas. There are 3 patios for eating outside. Inside is a cozy environment with couches and coffee tables. They open at 10 on Saturday and Sunday, but go a little early because there will be a line.

Thats the question. It once had one of the best turkey sandwiches Ive had and other good dishes as well as great desserts. The last few times Ive been there I got sick though, so no more. Not sure why. One of those times I also got way over changed by the bartenderess. What sed to be a good experience... More

Very good food in a romantic atmosphere. Order at the counter and they bring it to you. Couches, over-stuffed chairs inside, with perfect lighting, great courtyard outside.

I've been going to candle light for years now and they never disappoint! the hot cocoa in the cold days is to die for! The food is always great, and they have fun board games for intimate lunches. Whenever i have family from out of town i always make sure to bring them here. I never come on busy days... More

First off, I realize this is a bar, however it’s also a San Antonio downtown restaurant that’s supposed to serve great brunch. Just beware, this place is not child friendly at all. We were visiting our daughter & son in law & they suggested this place for brunch. We got there early because we heard lines could get crazy around... More

Ok, this is a local place near a college so I expected it to be super casual. The reviews were amazing for the place, the food, the brunch. The place just did not turn out to be all that. It's run down and needs new carpet for sure. Stunning patio was no where near stunning. The french toast and eggs... More

Calling all cat ladies! Solid brunch menu with a bottomless self serve mimosa bar until 2 pm. The outside patio is nice and spacious, enough space to share with a few cats calmly lounging around. The inside is set up with antique couches and chairs along with table seating for those wanting to dine indoors. Upon arrival, do not wait... More

Candlelight gets packed quickly for Sunday Brunch times. The doors open at 10am but the line outside begins before then. Once inside everyone forms a line which wraps around the bar area. As you're waiting they have menus placed on the bar which speeds up the ordering process so the line moves fairly quick. After ordering they give you a... More
