The Magnolia Pancake Haus Update: 29 Dec 2016

 20161127_105806

    It all began in 2000, the original Magnolia Pancake Haus opened it’s doors to the San Antonio public and the good word was spread across the city.  In 2006,  it became way too small to accommodate everyone that wanted to enjoy, so a bigger one across the way was born.  There is now 2 locations in the San Antonio area.  If this place sounds familiar to you, it may be because it was featured by Guy Fieri on Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives in 2011.  This only made the restaurant more popular than it already was.  You can find some of the best pancakes ever at The Magnolia Pancake Haus.  That’s not all though,  their menu is filled with other traditional and unique breakfast items that will keep your tummy happy.  Some of the best breakfast I’ve ever had in my life.

A Scrumptious Supper at Southerleigh

After a nice Saturday of cookie decorating with my family, Kevin and I thought we’d head out to The Pearl once again to try out a delicious restaurant and grab some dessert.  We stopped by Southerleigh, it consists of a modern cuisine with a Southern Texan twist.  It took over the bottom floor of what used to be The Pearl brewhouse.  It is famous for their interesting grub and the variety of beers they have on tap. After dinner, we stopped by Bakery Lorraine right before they closed.  All they really had left were macarons, which isn’t bad… but I’ll get into all of that later.

A Quick Trip To Bird Bakery

    After one of our daily morning walks around the Quarry Market, Kevin and I ran by Bird Bakery for a yummy dose of coffee and cupcakes.  My absolute favorite cupcakes ever.  I hadn’t had some in over three years and I thought is was the perfect morning to grab me some.  The best part about this place is that they use all the finest ingredients and everything is always 100% fresh.  It is a no-no in the Bird Bakery world to sell a cupcake that is even a day old.  Everything is made bright and early in the morning for the day.   Continue reading “A Quick Trip To Bird Bakery”

Saturday Brunch At Max’s Wine Dive

o-2

It had been over four years since Kevin and I indulged into some of Max’s Wine Dive’s delicious pan borracho.  Unfortunately, arriving at around 3 o’clock on a Saturday, Max’s only offers items from their brunch menu, so no drunk bread.  Brunch ends at 4.  Luckily for us, the brunch menu consisted of so many delicious things.  It took us forever to decide what we wanted.  Max’s Wine Dive is a cool wine bar that serves gourmet food with a hip twist.  It is located behind the Quarry Market.
