Hearthstone BakeryCafe Voted Best Sandwich Shop in San Antonio Again
Hearthstone BakeryCafe is the little bakery that can and does. For 10 years their Forum location has been serving up fresh, delicious food for breakfast, lunch and dinner every day. Everyone loves bakeries for the fresh baked pastry, right! Hearthstone bakes muffins, scones, turnovers, Bagels and Danish every morning. But that’s just the start of what they offer for breakfast. You can also get warm sandwiches. You choose the bread: bagel, panino, croissant, English muffin, then choose your filling. Breakfast bowls are here too! Generous portions of scrambled eggs topped with bacon or sausage, cheese and sour cream. Want some house-made stick-to-your-ribs all day oatmeal? Yup it’s here too along with an assortment of your favorite toppings. They even have fruit yogurt parfaits topped with granola. Any of the Hearthstone breakfasts will have you shinning all day.
Hearthstone BakeryCafe is much more than just a bakery or cafe however. It is a full service restaurant already well known for its gourmet sandwiches. In addition, you will find warm soups, cold salads, paninis and wraps all on the menu. Many of their sandwiches are served hot so they make a nice option for lunch or dinner even during the cooler months.
Chef VandeBerg’s sandwiches are a little famous too having appeared on Food Network’s Americas’s Bread Battle before Hearthstone opened its doors in 2006. Since opening, the restaurant has won several customer-selected, reader’s choice, and critically acclaimed awards for best sandwich in San Antonio. The latest accolade was the San Antonio Express News Reader’s Choice 2016 award for San Antonio’s Best Sandwich Shop.
Their # 1 best selling hot-pressed Panini is the Turkey Artichoke. Served warm on a ciabatta bread, this panini combines turkey breast, tender artichoke hearts, spinach-artichoke spread, tomatoes and mozzarella for a flavor filled hearty meal. The paninis, sandwiches and wraps all come with a pickle spear and a choice of chips or fresh baked cookie. Don’t want a cookie or chips. Not a problem. Upgrade to a side salad, cup of soup, fruit cup or pasta/potato salad.
Every month Hearthstone BakeryCafe offers a special-of-the-month sandwich and this month their special is the “Tenor” marking the 10th anniversary of serving San Antonio. The Tenor is a panino stacked with pepperoni, ham and turkey and filled with lettuce, tomato, pepperoncinis, Provolone and topped with a tangy Italian Balsamic vinaigrette. When you taste this mouthful of Italian goodness, you will be happy you came in to help them celebrate. But come in now as this special sandwich is only available through Oct 31.
In addition, they have a selection of mouthwatering salads. I would like to suggest you try the # 1 best seller like I did. The Cranberry Balsamic Salad is a crossover of summer to fall flavors. Here baby and romaine lettuce topped with tender artichokes, tomatoes, shaved onions, candies pecans and cranberries then drizzled with Balsamic dressing will have you thinking of Turkey Day. Especially if you add-on some chicken. Salads come with a wedge of Foccacia.
*Note: They have many vegetarian options and hot items on their menu!
Besides being a full service restaurant, coffeehouse and bakery, Hearthstone BakeryCafe also offers full catering to any size group. Need a box breakfast or lunch for an office meeting? Got it! Want fresh roasted coffee, lemonade or OJ? Got it! Need a salad, fresh fruit, hot breakfast, sandwich or cookie tray? Got it! How about a hamburger feast, BBQ or Italian buffet for the neighborhood night out or family reunion? Hearthstone’s got that too! They can put together as much or as little as you need. They can furnish plates & cups, plastics, & napkins if you need them. You can pick up your order at either location or they will deliver.
Hearthstone knows you have more important things to work on when throwing a party. So they can take the hassle of cooking out of the equation. They cater with fresh, great tasting food bringing a personal touch to your event. And they always guarantee to be on time (allowing for a 15 minute window). If you have ever had an event catered, you will appreciate this guarantee! They cater, they deliver….You relax!
Welcome to the bakery that does it all, and does it wonderfully!
