Now here’s a popular restaurant that I’ve been coming to since Day 1: Stone Werks. Three locations around the Alamo City (Lincoln Heights, The Vineyard, and The Rim) together share an impressive history…over twenty years of serving San Antonio! They’re also a longtime Sysco customer.
Kate’s Frosting Cupcakes on Main opened in 2007 after a long San Antonio summer of creating and testing original cupcake recipes. It’s one of my favorite areas in San Antonio…Mom & Pop shops line the streets and are frequented often by curious, smiling faces.

This time of year, proper hydration is a big deal — and most of us simply aren’t drinking enough water. If a plain old glass of the good stuff isn’t appealing, Epicure carries some tasty alternatives. Store Manager, Stephanie Hernandez, and I sampled a trio of brands you won’t find just anywhere.
