Located near the city’s downtown, Cappy’s Restaurant is renowned for its weekend brunches. Weeks after a meal at Cappy's, a patron might daydream about the truffled scrambled eggs, cold water lobster tail, or gluten-free pancakes. The Gulf shrimp omelettes must be tried to be believed. This two-story eatery is named after Cappy Lawton. He launched it in 1977 at age 29. Cappy and his family have kept the place going strong for decades. Plus, its quiet rooms make it ideal for catching up with friends.

Mexican and Tex-Mex foods are specialties of La Fonda on Main, near the airport. During weekend brunches, people can feast on chorizo benedictos. This entree features poached eggs, pork, and pastries called gorditas. Or how about huevos rancheros? They include potatoes, chili peppers, eggs, and refried black beans. And those are just two of La Fonda's colorful options. Each could be a candidate for the best breakfast in San Antonio. La Fonda on Main first opened its doors in the 1930s. Since then, sitting on the patio under an oak tree has become a grand San Antonio tradition.

In early 2019, Aldo’s Ristorante Italiano moved. After more than three decades in San Antonio’s Medical Center, it reopened in the suburb of Dominion Ridge. Fortunately, the Italian concoctions that made it famous are also why it survived the move. The new location boasts a bright, airy interior. The gorgeous fireplace is covered with shiny tiles. And a huge painting called "The Banquet of Cleopatra" hangs above the bar. Aldo’s brunch has its own masterpieces. Among them are ricotta pancakes, poached egg with smoked salmon, and homemade whipped yogurt with granola.

The original Paloma opened in 1997. It moved to a larger location on Broadway in 2003. Today, leather chairs, oil paintings, and lots of houseplants create a truly tasteful environment. Outdoor seating is also available. And there are plenty of rooms here for both casual and formal functions. What’s for breakfast during the weekend brunch? Well, rib eye steak, a tortilla with ham and eggs, and baked bread with refried black beans and cheese are just a few of the tantalizing items.

There's nothing quite like brunch at Ácenar. It's got Belgian waffles, poached eggs and salsa, egg white vegetable omelettes, toasted bolillo, and lots more.

It’s in a lovely brick building with several stories. To enhance the dining experience, Ácenar has lounges, balconies, and private function rooms.

Ostra is a AAA Four Diamond restaurant, with a growing reputation throughout the region of San Antonio. And Ostra prepares a bewitching bounty each morning. Is it the best breakfast in San Antonio?

Ostra is located inside the glamorous, four-star Mokara Hotel and Spa. It's one of the finest places to stay in the whole Lone Star State. Mokara is nestled along the San Antonio River, and Ostra offers romantic riverside dining all day.

Las Canarias has three stories to explore and four diamonds from AAA. This River Walk restaurant is inside Omni La Mansión del Rio. It's a luxurious hotel that resembles a hacienda, or Spanish plantation. White tablecloths and an elaborate chandelier typify this restaurant's elegance. The morning buffet at Las Canarias is called the Art of Breakfast. It definitely deserves that name. Guests enjoy fruit, croissants, Danishes, applewood bacon, omelettes, cinnamon raisin french toast, sausages, potatoes, and plenty more. And how about a soy latte to wash it all down?

San Antonio’s Southtown neighborhood is known for its lively arts scene and for the Sunday brunch at Battalion. The latter premiered in 2018, and there’s a full bar to go with it. The food is both American and Italian, and the bill of fare is creative. It has tiramisu French toast, cannoli crepes, eggs with tomato sauce and focaccia, beef tacos with eggs, and Italian omelettes stuffed to the gills with prosciutto and other goodies. Battalion is set inside a former firehouse, and offers excellent views of the San Antonio skyline.

With three locations in Texas and one in Florida, Mash’D is starting to spread its rebellious attitude all over the South. Its full name is Mash'D / Food, Moonshine, Life. And it prides itself on a boisterous atmosphere. This place celebrates music and moonshine. The bar is enormous. The TVs are blaring. Whatever else is going on in the world, everyone here seems to be laughing with friends and relishing the food. At brunch, customers can select a kale and quinoa omelet, a meatloaf sandwich with scrambled eggs, or moonshine-battered French toast. The other options are equally rich and tempting.

Whiskey Cake is all about slow cooking and making meals from scratch. They locally source their food, and have their own vegetable and herb garden. This restaurant is gigantic, with an industrial style inside. The exposed brick really lends it that stylish loft look. Or, if they’d like, guests can eat on the porch. When it’s time for breakfast, Whiskey Cake delivers. Do the banana caramel pancakes, chicken and waffles, ham Benedict, and grilled pork brisket rank among the best breakfast in San Antonio? For sure they do.

Cibolo Moon is inside a sprawling hotel: the JW Marriott San Antonio Hill Country Resort & Spa. Yet it feels intimate and homey. It has kitchen gardens. Its produce comes from local farms. And many of its recipes are based on old-fashioned Mexican and Hill Country dishes. In short, it’s a modern eatery with rural charm. That charm extends to the breakfast table. Diners enjoy breakfast tacos, brisket hash, whole wheat French toast, and steak and eggs. Buffets are available as well.

Those who eat at JW Marriott San Antonio’s 18 Oaks get two distinct pleasures. First, they can look out at the beautiful golf course. Second, they can inhale the aromas of some of the best breakfast in San Antonio. This sustainable steakhouse serves vegetables and meat courtesy of area farmers. It’s casual but not too casual. It has a refined air; some diners show up in formal attire. And the ceilings, by the way, are 30 feet high. The organic eggs, omelets with goat cheese, and blueberry pancakes make people glad they stopped by. The pecan and cinnamon chip waffle makes them want to come back really soon.
