San Antonio Smorgasbord – Magnolia Pancake Haus

Magnolia PancakeTalk about a breakfast for champions! Whether you’re looking for a nice home cooked breakfast with scrambled eggs, bacon, hash browns, and some specialty pancakes, or a nice late morning brunch, this is the place to be. This little diamond in the rough has been featured on the hit tv show Diner-Drive Ins- and Dives, and is known for their delicious pancakes, as their name would imply.

There are only two locations here in San Antonio, one is quite close to the optometry school main campus, off of Huebner road, and the original location, located off of Embassy Oaks. Some claim the original location is superior to the 2nd location off of Huebner, but I will let you decide for yourself. The menu is full of breakfast items, from omelets, to hamburgers. The meal that I usually get is the Magnolia’s Breakfast with coffee. Their coffee is some of the most delicious coffee I have ever tasted! So, my breakfast is scrambled eggs, bacon, hash browns, and I always get the chocolate chip pancakes!

CakesThat’s right, I said chocolate chip! If you can’t tell, I have a bit of a sweet tooth, and boy do those pancakes satisfy its craving. They have many other specialty pancakes that I can’t remember off the top of my head, so you should definitely go check it out yourself! Be ready for a wait though, at the original location, the wait is normally around 1.5-2 hours and at the Huebner location it is around 1 hour, but I guarantee it is worth it!
