Isn't this sweet? La Panadería is opening a second location in downtown San Antonio, at 301 E. Houston St. on Friday, June 9.

"My brother, David, and I are thrilled to expand our presence in San Antonio to be a part of the vibrant downtown district," says co-owner José Cáceres in a release. "There is a lot of momentum and economic growth happening in the area and we can't wait to be a part of it."

The Cáceres brothers, originally from Mexico City, launched La Panadería at the Quarry Farmers and Ranchers Market in 2013. After selling out of bread every Sunday for six months, the duo opened a brick-and-mortar on Broadway Street in 2014.

The new outpost will serve as La Panadería's flagship location. The 6,000-square-foot space includes a bread lab, where customers can watch the 48-hour fermentation and bread-making process.

"The opening of our flagship store is the culmination of 25 years of experience and education in world-class breadmaking," says David Cáceres Galicia, co-owner and panadero, in a release. "We are so humbled by our loyal customers and fans. From day one of selling our pan at the farmers market they have shown us so much love and support. Without San Antonians, La Panadería would still be a dream for my brother and me."

The menu will remain the same — pastries, tortas, soups, salads, and, of course, the tequila almond croissant — but you can expect a few new items. The downtown spot will offer more desserts and dinner options, as well as beer and wine.

Hours are Sunday through Thursday, 7 am to 8 pm, and Friday and Saturday, 7 am to 10 pm. A third location of La Panadería is slated to open in 2018.
