Something Special from Chef Johnny Hernandez is Brewing in San Antonio




Something special coming! Southtown Coffee, San Antonio’s newest sensation from Chef Johnny Hernandez, is now open along the Mission Reach of the River Walk.



Set within Chef Johnny’s Burgerteca restaurant, beside its colorful Margarita Garden, Southtown Coffee’s large new lounge and outdoor areas recall cafes in picturesque pueblos of Mexico.


Something Special



Offering a singularly San Antonio experience, Southtown Coffee is open daily from 8 a.m. to 9 p.m. serving Mexican specialty coffees and chocolate drinks dating back to pre-Hispanic celebratory and ceremonial beverages. Some of these ancient recipes, made with corn and cacao, come from an area in Michoacan where Chef Johnny’s mother and her ancestors lived. It’s all part of his ongoing journey, exploring the strong
traditions of Mexico’s culinary heritage.



Chef Johnny grinds fresh coffee beans sourced from Veracruz and Chiapas. He also oven roasts and then grinds organic cacao beans in a molina with fresh cinnamon sticks. Such commitment to quality ingredients and traditional Mexican preparation methods ensures an unparalleled coffee and chocolate experience.
