About La Panaderia
The restaurant believes in being out of the ordinary. With their baked artisan breads, they are working towards bringing the Pan Americano concept to San Antonio. The concept is to create an eating experience entirely revolving around Latina American bread and culture. You can visit Monday through Friday from 7am-8pm, 8am-5pm on Saturdays and 8am-3pm on Sundays.
The menu allows you to start by picking your bread, choosing your recipe and then choosing a soup or salad to accompany it. The soups are Fideo Soup and Black Beans Soup and the salads include a house salad or Cesar option.
Try breakfast options like Ham & Egg or Chorizo & Egg. For lunch and dinner, try a turkey with cilantro mayo, chipotle mustard and gouda warmed in the oven. Try the Chicken or Cubana options and choose breads like the Telera, Birote or Croissant.
You can also choose from salad bowls, kid croissants and refreshments including Mexican Soda, ice tea, coffee and their special Café Goteo Americano which takes longer but it’s the optimum method for getting the most fruit expression out of the coffee beans.
