Myself and two friends went for lunch at Perks recently. My first impression was: Friendly - we were greeted with a smile and a hello immediately from Stacey (the owner), clean (very important to me), and the menu had just the right mix of food and drink items. We all decided on wraps. I had tuna salad, one friend had chicken salad, and the other friend had grilled chicken. All of our wraps were fresh and very tasty. Stacey asked us to sample and give her feedback on a new variation of a smoothie that she was developing. We also split a rice crispy desert that Stacey has put her own spin on.....delicious! If you want a relaxing, friendly spot to have a meal with friends or family, this is the place. I would highly recommend this cafe, and that's saying a lot as my friends tell me that I'm picky. Much success to Perks and the owners!!

La Mad has been around forever, but this was my first visit to the Northwoods location. I was looking for an electronics store on 281 and the traffic was just terrible; it was 5 o'clock rush hour. So I got off the freeway and pulled into the first place I could to map my location. The place was …
We started off with deep fried onion & jalepeon pieces, (Splinters), that were the perfect balance of spiciness and flavor. The 100% ground chuck hamburger was hand formed and cooked on the griddled with a slight sear to my request for a medium burger. (most places over cook the meat and ruin the flavor) Jan'es was juicy and seasoned right. They fixed it to my speciafication of vegetables and LOTs of cheese. The waitress suggested i try they blended mustard/mayo mix which work out well. We also had hand made onion rings, and 20 ounce shakes. The shakes were made with a custom made Oak Farms ice cream, milk and natrual flavors. Mine was a Choco-banana, made with Hershey's syrup and a fresh banana.....perfect. The address was on 4200 Broadway at Hildebrand.
This is the best Starbucks in all of San Antonio. This location serves the downtown working community starting at 5am, which makes it very convenient when your work day begins at 6am or later. Not only are they the best in customer service, but they put the customer first by starting off with a terrific attitude. The employees here are very pleasant no matter what time it is and they are willing to make your Starbucks coffee just like you like it. These employees rank #1 in customer service. Keep up the great job and I will continue to drive pass my work location and drive a little further, just for the wonderful customer service you provide to me each and every morning! Great customer service means a lot to me!
Once you got use to the way things are ran, it wasn't bad. Odd at first for a 1st timer, but the food was good and the ambiance was laid back and fun. It was more expensive than I thought it should have been for a coffee/wine bar. We went for brunch and there were three of us with a total of about 70.00. A little steep, but it was fathers day and we don't do that often. If it's your first time going, just know that you have to go to the bar to order anything/everything. There is no one there "waiting tables" even though you would expect that with the prices.
Good burgers and really good "Splinters". The splinters are slices of onion and jalapenos that are battered and fried and served with ranch dressing. They are wonderful! The staff was very friendly and the service was really quick. We were on our lunch break and we had plenty of time to sit and chat. The food came out so quickly and it was piping hot! Good experience!
I love going to this place. It's a great place to relax with a bottle of wine with friends or family in the large enchanting patio. Very quiet and lovely setting also inside, decorated with antique tables, sofas and chairs. The staff is great, and the food is very good. And the desserts... they are to die for.
LOVE THIS PLACE! It is like a second home to me. The owners and the waitresses/servers are all ver friendly and know their stuff when it comes to hookah combos. The food is good, the music selection is good, and I always find myself laughing and having a good time here. Favorite hookah bar in SA
I have never been as satisfied as I have since I started going to Stella for my eyelash extensions. She does a wonderful job! She takes her time and makes sure you walk out with geat looking lashes! You WILL NOT be disappointed by her services!
I have been going to Adela for ten years and she is the best I have found with color, cut, and style. She keeps up with the latest trends, is hardworking, and friendly. A great salon. Prices are reasonable. Jolie
This Starbucks location has to be the busiest Starbucks I've visited in San Antonio. In spite of that, it is well staffed and they serve your coffee order quickly, prepared just the way you like it.
