Rise and Dine in the Alamo City's Best Breakfast Spots

Breakfast may just be this city's favorite meal! San Antonio is known for its cheap and delicious breakfast tacos (they can easily compete with Austin any day of the week). So, we've got you if that's what you're looking for, but we promise so much more on our list of top 10 breakfast places in town you must explore before noon!

Snooze tops the list, especially if you're not sure what you want, but you know you want a stellar breakfast with all the fixings. They take it up a notch (or 10) with their scrumptious array of everything from decadent pancakes to bennys. You can not go wrong here!

If it's gotta be Latin, why not step outside the box. Ocho  serves up the city's best Cuban sammy (with huevo) for breakfast, and Cascabel  brings you to central Mexico with their homemade corn tortillas, black beans and cafe de olla. We suggest you dig into their chilaquiles, but make sure to ask for it with bacon and grilled cactus.
