The best part of waking up
If you ask us, it’s a shame to relegate brunch to just a few hours on Sunday. Thankfully, “A.M. eatery” Snooze is spreading the gospel that you can sit down for eggs and mimosas any day of a week.
The Denver-based chain is opening its third San Antonio location in the Strand development at the corner of Interstate 10 and Huebner Road. According to a release, the eatery aims to be open by winter.
Those who have not been able to visit the restaurant’s other two Alamo City locations can expect a huge menu that covers everything from breakfast tacos and corned beef hash to huevos rancheros and artisan sandwiches.
Snooze is especially known for its eggs Benedicts, devoting an entire section of the menu to the brunch staple. Options include a classic take with shaved hickory smoked ham; a harvest version served on quinoa cakes with watercress, zucchini, and heirloom cherry tomatoes; and an Italian benny with prosciutto and Taleggio cheese on a toasted ciabatta.
For those with a sweet tooth, the restaurant also offers an array of over-the-top pancakes loaded with ingredients like caramelized pineapple chunks, vanilla creme anglais, chocolate sauce, and blueberry coulis. If you have trouble choosing just one, they also serve a pancake flight allowing you to select any three flavors.
Like the food menu, the drink program covers all the bases. Brunch basics like mimosas, micheladas, and Bloody Marys join original creations like an Old Fashioned made with cold brew coffee; a pomegranate margarita; and Bacon and Eggs, a cocktail made with bacon-infused whiskey, house sour mix, frothed egg whites, and bitters.
Non-imbibers can choose from fresh juices, hot chocolate, chai, and a variety of coffeehouse drinks like lattes, cortados, and macchiatos.
Although each new location inevitably debuts with a line, the nearly 4,000-square-foot dining room and spacious patio should keep the opening waits at a minimum. As has become a tradition for the company, the new Strand location will partner with area nonprofits during its debut to give back to the community.
