Williams' Confectionery Crafts prepares its delicious eats and bakes its treats in gloriously old-fangled style. Start your day of work or conclude your night of vampire hunting with breakfast (served all day) and gobble up biscuits and gravy ($2.99); gorge on pancakes ($3.99); or introduce your bashful face to a stomach-warming meal of bacon, eggs, grits, and toast ($3.99). At the sound of the lunch cymbals, sandwich fans can retire to the confectionery for a roast-beef bread tower stacked with red onions, bell peppers, provolone, and mayonnaise ($5.29).

The restaurant also features meal specials ($6.99) between 11 a.m. and 7 p.m. Monday through Friday. Tuesdays treat you to chicken and dumplings with mixed veggies, candied yams, and a roll. Thursday visitors, meanwhile, can burrow into a hefty platter of smothered pork chops paired with gravy-drenched rice, greens, pineapple casserole, and cornbread. A finishing flourish of fresh-baked pies, cookies, and cakes—as well as decadent alternatives such as floats, banana splits, and specialty sundaes—will defuse sweet teeth before their timer counts down to zero. Meal seekers can visit Williams’ Confectionery Crafts’ snack shop between 7 a.m. and 7 p.m. on Monday through Friday, and from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday.
Williams' Confectionery Crafts reportedly has the best chicken-fried steak and is a good place to dine on a budget, according to MySanAntonio. Yelpers give it a 4.5-star average, and 100% of Urbanspooners like it:
- The chicken-fried steak is the perfect balance of crisp crust, well-seasoned meat that is tender enough to cut with a fork, which makes it worthy of the critics' choice for best chicken-fried steak. – Jennifer McInnis, MySanAntonio
- We're not talking fancy here, but good, fresh food, made with affection and care by skillful hands. – Edmund Tijerina, MySanAntonio
Williams Confectionery Crafts
The first things to catch your eye upon walking into Williams' Confectionery Crafts are display cases full of old-fashioned baked goods: cookies, hulking cinnamon rolls, fresh-baked pies, chunky brownies, and decadent iced cakes alternate among the shelves. Behind the counter, bakers also whip up custom cakes for special occasions, whether that means stacking wedding-cake tiers or transferring photos onto frosting.
But don't let the confectionary fool you—it's not lacking in savory treats. It also houses a restaurant that prepares homestyle food. All-day breakfast allows diners to gobble up biscuits and gravy or fill their stomachs with a full meal of bacon, eggs, grits, and toast. Later in the day, chicken and dumplings, roast-beef sandwiches, and smothered pork chops satisfy cravings for meals just like mom used to make.
