Brunch—like twilight, sporks, skorts, and so many other things that make life worth living—is not quite one thing and not quite another. Celebrate everyone's favorite mutant mealtime with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of brunch or lunch fare at Anne Marie's Carriage House Bistro, located on the grounds of the San Antonio Botanical Garden.
Within its tranquil and rustic climes, Anne Marie's Carriage House Bistro rustles up gourmet comfort fare for an eclectic menu of late-morning nibbles and midday noshables. Celebrate a day away from the office and its cruelly mocking copy machines with weekend brunch fare such as the bistro benedict, a split muffin topped with ancho smoked beef, fried eggs, and hollandaise ($10), or one of two varieties of jalapeño-cheddar french toast ($10–$12). At lunch, meat mavens can indulge in the Carriage House meatloaf ($11) and South Texas cheesesteak ($9), while veggivores can keep their plant-loving mandibles from latching onto the botanical garden’s nearby flora by busying them with a garden hoagie, which comes loaded with seared portobello mushrooms, eggplant tapenade, jalapeño cream cheese, red bell pepper, onion, and provolone ($8). The bistro is open Tuesday–Friday from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., with brunch served on weekends from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.
- Almost equally irresistible was the red-wine demi pot roast that shares entrée honors with fish and chips, a pulled-pork enchilada, seared salmon, and a vegetarian pasta. Chunky, meaty, hearty, and sophisticated all at once, this is the pot roast mom wished she could have made. – Ron Bechtol, San Antonio Current
- I love the Carriage House. I have been there several times for lunch within the last six months and have found their service to be impeccable (not over or underdone). – Adhana T., Yelp, 1/29/10
