Boss Bagel is an awesome spot for breakfast and coffee. Their wood-fired oven means everything is fresh and made in-house. Only a block from your stay, it's a beautiful morning walk.

Visit the historic Pearl for amazing food, ice cream, drinks and views. It's set right off the Riverwalk and is a must if you want to walk around and enjoy modern San Antonio shops and atmosphere. There's also a farmer's market every Saturday and Sunday, definitely check it out if you can.

When I want delicious coffee from a San Antonio roaster, Merit is one of my all-time favorites. Everything is roasted in San Antonio and the shop is a local favorite for good reason. It's also attached to a bike shop. Just a cool vibe.
