Breakfast in San Antonio is a Fantastic Reason to Wake Up!

Breakfast isn't always the most exciting meal of the day, that is, unless you're in San Antonio! With Tex-Mex restaurants peppering the city, you can pretty much close your eyes and point at the nearest Tex-Mex joint and be pretty happy with a dozen variations of breakfast tacos. However, San Antonio has so much more to breakfast and brunch on!

Supper, located at the Pearl Brewery's Hotel Emma, can be hard to get into for dinner, but not so for breakfast. Still it has their signature style. Where else can you have a Belgian Waffle topped with rich, decadent duck? 

Of course, San Antonio, has some local favorites that shouldn't be overlooked. If you're sight-seeing or shopping in Southtown, make sure to grab a relaxing bite at the lovely Guenther House. Their fluffy biscuits and creamy gravy are some of the best in town.

For pancake-lovers, is there anywhere better than Magnolia Pancake Haus? Probably not! Although you might have difficulty choosing which type of pancake you want, sometimes difficult decisions must be made!
