Alamo Heights is one of the oldest and most renowned neighborhoods in all of San Antonio. Actually an incorporated city within San Antonio, Alamo Heights features a top-notch school system, quiet streets lined with old family homes, townhomes and high rises made for urban living, quality restaurants, bakeries, and coffee shops, and endless shopping opportunities.

Where to Eat

Running down the heart of Alamo Heights is Broadway, which is home to many of Alamo Heights’ best places to grab a coffee or a bite to eat. In the morning, stop into Broadway Daily Bread and try one of their many freshly baked treats, like homemade cinnamon rolls, muffins, and kolaches to die for. If you need caffeine to jump start your day try Local Coffee, where the unique and special brews will ruin you for regular joe after you’ve tried it. Broadway is also home to many great lunch spots in Alamo Heights. Cappyccino’s offers updated classics like soups, sandwiches, and killer burgers. And speaking of burgers, Order Up in Lincoln Heights off Broadway focuses their menu on burgers and fries, and the results are fantastic. To tame that late afternoon stomach growling, stop by Bird Bakery on Broadway. While Bird Bakery’s Hollywood connection might bring people in, the delectable cupcakes, pies, cookies, drinks, and sandwiches bring people back again and again. When it’s dinner in Alamo Heights, you can’t go wrong with Paloma Blanca, where Tex-Mex classics are dressed up and delicious. As well, Cappyccino’s big sister, Cappy’s, serves new American cuisine executed perfectly.

What to Do

The central location of Alamo Height means you can get to just about anywhere in San Antonio easily, yet right in and around Alamo Heights you can find opportunities for entertainment and leisure. One of San Antonio’s best museums, The McNay, sits on the edge of Alamo Heights. Once the estate of a prominent San Antonio art collector, The McNay and its serene grounds provide a fantastic museum experience today. In addition to the boutiques that line Broadway, just minutes from Alamo Heights are the Lincoln Heights and Quarry shopping centers. If you like to take a run on something other than a treadmill, consider jogging along the Olmos Dam, which connects Alamo Heights to Olmos Park.
