Skipping breakfast should be outlawed. With so many amazing breakfast places in San Antonio, big and bold flavors await you. Here are 10 of our favorite spots for the most important meal of the day.

Magnolia Pancake Haus
The must-try item here is Pfannekuchen: half pancake, half apple strudel, all delicious. Magnolia Pancake Haus has two locations to choose from, and the Huebner location has a nice green space with gathering spots for that after-breakfast stretch.

This Alamo Heights star is all organic and offers a nice combo of cinnamon rolls and build-your-own-taco zest. Options are abundant, and Orderup caters to your every request.

Twin Sisters Bakery & Cafe
The Parmesan French Toast with powdered sugar will make you go "ooh la la." We hope there's never any family drama at Twin Sisters because we love the funky and cool vibe. Bonus: It's very vegan-friendly.

Schilo's Delicatessen
A downtown staple since 1917, everyone has heard of Schilo's, and most of San Antonio has eaten there — it's the oldest continually operated restaurant in Texas. The food is always good, the staff is always friendly, and the country breakfast is always a favorite.

Candlelight Coffee House
Situated on St. Mary's Street, this lounge-worthy breakfast spot is filled with antique sofas and old-school attitude. It's expansive and cozy at the same time. Green eggs and ham is the dish you can't miss, and the pesto is perfect.

The Frutería
It's never too early for a cucumber margarita or a jolt of traditional Mexican flavor at this neighborhood joint. Try the gazpacho de fruta, a delicious blend of pineapple, mango, jicama, orange juice, chili, and queso cotija. A fancy fruit cup indeed.

Lulu's Bakery and Cafe
Lulu's Bakery is home to the largest cinnamon roll in San Antonio: It should have its own ZIP code it's so giant. And the sweetness is worth it. Share people, share.

The Guenther House
Baked goods are all the rage when it comes to this San Antonio gem. Pick one item — let's go with the buttermilk biscuits and gravy — and you will rave about it for days. Guenther House is a quaint spot, and the river views make everything more relaxing.  

Los Roberto's Taco Shop
This no-frills spot has it all in the taste category. Plus, you can pick up a potato, egg, and cheese burrito with a side of (that's right) french fries 24 hours a day. 

Pancake Joe's
This mom-and-pop breakfast shop in the Deco District is filled with flavor. We suggest trying the eggs Benedict with the ranch potatoes. Family owned and operated, the details here are finely tuned.
