5 Westside Breakfast Spots to Try

So what if the sun rises in the east? San Antonio’s West Side still corners the market on best breakfasts.

The Original Donut Shop
3307 Fredericksburg, (210) 734-566

This cash-only drive-thru or dine-in joint offers what many consider to be the best breakfast tacos in SA. It also has amazing, fresh-made donuts served piping hot if you get there early enough. To sample both at the same time takes some doing, as both drive-thru and indoors have separate lines for tacos and donuts, but it just might be worth the double effort. Be prepared for serious waits on the weekend.

Cristan's Tacos
1401 W Hildebrand, (210) 733-3348

Dressed with pink paint and a green jalapeño wearing sunglasses, Cristan’s Tacos is housed on the corner of Hildebrand and Catalina. Cristan’s serves a familiar, but noteworthy, menu of huevos rancheros and breakfast tacos.

Pancake Joe's
1011 Donaldson, (210) 785-9007

Sometimes, even San Antonians get sick of breakfast tacos. There, we said it. For those times, there is Pancake Joe’s with its excellent array of flapjacks, waffles, French toast, frittatas, omelets and combo plates. The Jefferson-area institution maintains friendly service even on the busiest weekend morning.

Linda's Mexican Restaurant
1424 Guadalupe, (210) 271-7120

Amidst Linda’s storied walls you’ll find the usual breakfast tacos and a whole lot more. Here you can find huevos rancheros with just about any meat you want from ham and bacon to pork chop (an area favorite) and carne guisada. Linda’s doesn’t skimp on taco fillings either. On any weekday morning, you can find a slew of regulars coming in for stuffed breakfast tacos before work or school.

Piedras Negras De Noche
1322 S Laredo, (210) 227-7779

The home of a former Pizza Hut, Piedras’ inviting and charming decor is a precursor for some just-south of the border cuisine. They offer a tripas taco that comes crispy, not tough. And if you happen to stay for lunch or dinner, try the queso flameado appetizer for something truly delectable.
