This was our go-to breakfast spot while in San Antonio for breakfast. Although not cheap, food here doesn't cost as much as our nearby hotel. Omelettes were good as were the breakfast tacos. Nothing fancy but good food.

My wife, I, and my two adult sons went here for breakfast the morning we were leaving San Antonio. Really neat place. Oldest restaurant in San Antonio with German roots and established in 1917. It really feels like you stepped back in time when you...More

I just arrived in San Antonio a couple days ago with my wife after a challenging day of travel from Portland, Oregon. The flight was difficult-screaming babies, delays, not smooth sailing-so on arrival we were not in our optimal mindframes. She likes to do the...More

So sorry to hear about this. We are absolutely family friendly, in fact we are probably one of the most family friendly restaurants in the city. It sounds like the restaurant must have been really crowded at the time and he was trying to clear...More

There was a small wait to get in, but I have to say that the breakfast was really enjoyable. The service was great from the manager to the waitress. Definitely will return.
