Las Canerias restaurant is located within the Omni Hotel on College Street in San Antonio. However, you don’t have to be a guest of the hotel to dine here. For one of the most elegant brunch, lunch, or dinner experiences in Texas, try this sophisticated restaurant at the next opportunity.

Beautiful Location

One of the thing that people love most about this restaurant is the location, which is set along the river. For a beautiful meal outside overlooking the water, this is one of the most gorgeous dining locales in all of Texas. Perfect for a romantic date or an divine lunch, this place goes highly recommend if you want to please your dining companion. Like the location and atmosphere, dressing up a bit is required for your meal, so don’t go in jeans.

Champagne Brunch

Both the breakfast and the brunch here are served buffet style, although between the hours of 6:30 AM and 11:30 AM, the meal is only available sans champagne. From 11:30 AM to 2:00 PM, though, you can indulge in a champagne brunch that’s to die for.

Buffet items include some of the traditional breakfast foods, as well as some more modern and creative ones. For example, try the blueberry maple sausage patties, the chilaquiles, the omelet’s made to order, the breakfast potatoes, the cinnamon raisin French toast, any of the assorted breads and croissants, a Danish, steel-cut oatmeal, cereals, gluten-free breads, granola, and more.

Breakfast without the Buffet

If you don’t like the idea of buffets, you’re also welcome to order breakfast from a traditional menu. Some great breakfast items include the muesli with granola, agave nectar, and fresh fruit; the smoked salmon with vodka dill and fennel; the eggs Benedict with breakfast potatoes; and the steak and cage-free eggs, which also come with breakfast potatoes, tortillas, and Ancho hollandaise sauce. There are also chilaquiles, huevos rancheros, malted vanilla waffles, and creme brûlée French toast. Needless to say, this is one of the best breakfasts in San Antonio.

Famous for Breakfast, Good for Lunch & Dinner

While the restaurant receives the majority of its acclaim for its breakfast/brunch options, it’s pretty good for lunch or dinner, too. While the dinner is expensive, the Artisan cheese board is amazing, the roasted salmon will melt in your mouth, the potato crusted Berkshire pork belly is succulent, and the beef tenderloin is so juicy and good that it can definitely be named as a must-order item here. The tenderloin is priced at $95, and is for two. Sides are $8 apiece, and include things like asparagus with Béarnaise sauce, caramelized cauliflower with curried cashews, Brussels sprouts, and more. For lunch, try the blue crab cakes, the spicy mushroom penne pasta, or keep it simple with the ground chuck beef burger.

Great Desserts

If you’re a dessert fiend, you’ll love the caramel popcorn cremeux with buttermilk ice cream and Marcona almonds, the chocolate cake, and the goat cheese cheese cake. If you like sweets but are too stuffed from your meal, try one of the dessert wines or an after dinner coffee.
