Yelp Comfort Cafe Names San Antonio’s Best Brunch Spot


Planning a weekend brunch? Look no further. In a just-published review of the best places to eat brunch in San Antonio, Yelp determined Los Patios Comfort Cafe restaurant to be the best.

The two Comfort Cafe locations (in Smithville and San Antonio) operate under a single model. The staff is made up of volunteers and all proceeds benefit a community of recovering drug addicts through the Serenity Star recovery program. The restaurant also employs community members who work or are graduates of the program.

Yelp previously named the restaurant the best place to eat in Texas in 2021.


The Comfort Cafe offers a variety of menu options from Eggs Benedict to Lemon Ricotta Blueberry Pancakes. While patrons are encouraged to pay what they can, there is a suggested minimum donation of $15 for meals and $5 for coffee drinks and desserts.

After Comfort Cafe, the company listed the 19 best places to brunch in the city of Alamo. Behind Comfort Cafe were La Panadería, Tony G’s Soul Food, Pancake Joe’s, and Ida Claire in places 2 through 5, respectively.

In descending order, the rest include The Magnolia Pancake Haus, NOLA Brunch & Beignets, Sangria On the Burg, Mash’D, The Guenther House, Cover 3, Full Belly – Cafe & Bar, Signature, Thyme For Lunch, Southerleigh Fine Food And Brasserie, Cured, Back Unturned Brewing, Max & Louie’s New York Diner, La Boulangerie and Supper.

Yelp determined this list by identifying San Antonio businesses using its platform with a high concentration of reviews mentioning the keyword “brunch.” Yelp then ranked these spots using a number of factors, including total volume and review ratings.

Find Comfort Cafe at 2015 Northeast Loop 410.
