and the special diet options rule, The Cove is a must visit when in San Antonio!
Mmmm, breakfast, who can deny that going out for a morning meal isn't awesome?
Well,Twin Sister's Bakery and Cafehas you covered on that awesome morning meal.
They've got an extensive lunch and dinner menu too that's got plenty for health minded
folks but since I popped in for brunch, I'll tell you all about the deliciousness they served
me. Like the build your own breakfast tacos! Yum!! I wanted 10 but I opted for sweet
potato and spinach as well as black bean with tofu chorizo and avocado. I want to have
that for breakfast every day! And their tofu ranchero with mashed black beans was so
full of flavor that I wanted to eat that for every meal too! Vegan sticky buns, oatmeal and
all sorts yummy treats, hit up Twin Sister's in Alamo Heights as well as their downtown
location any time of day!
When on the road, hunting down vegan pizza is a fun game I like to play. I keep a
mental note of the best vegan pizzas I've ever had and I'm delighted to report
thatFralo's Art of Pizzamakes my top 5 of all time! The crust is fantastic, the veggie
topping options are killer and yeah, they've got vegan cheese!. A vegan portobello bake,
a beautiful salad and a pizza pie but me many clouds above the 9th one ; ) Fralo's not
only has great food but the ambiance is terrific too! With tons of outdoor seating and a
stage for live entertainment, who wouldn't be there every weekend night for delicious
Italian food and fun? For gluten free customers, they've got you covered and they are
always perfecting their artistic pizzas. I can't wait to go back to Fralo's some day soon!
At the risk of making my San Antonio coverage a novel, I'll keep you guessing about the
other places I dined! I'll be back with more San Antonio next week!!
