Sol y Luna Baking Company provides some of the best baked goods under the sun (and moon). To satisfying your craving for bread or sweets, head here for some of the most mouthwatering creations in San Antonio.

Taste the Difference

Unlike corporate or chain bakeries, Sol y Luna is a family owned establishment, and you can definitely taste the difference. Everything is prepared from scratch here, is made in house, and is made with a love and passion for food. As a customer, you won’t be disappointed by the way the bakery items melt in your mouth, or the way that they taste as though they were prepared in your grandmother’s kitchen.

The Sweeter Side of Life

If you like sweet things, you’ll be thrilled by the large selection of sweet treats here. The lemon cupcake has a creamy frosting and a perfectly flavored base, the red velvet cupcake is melt-in-your-mouth good, the chocolate croissant is as good as those that are French, the danishes are sweet and flaky, and the bread pudding is to die for! With a huge selection to choose from, ask the staff for recommendations to help narrow it down. Or, go all out and buy a bunch of stuff–your choice!

More than Just Desserts

There are some amazing things here that fall outside the category of sweet eats. For example, the bakery has delicious flatbread pizzas, which they also serve up at the Farmers’ Market. There’s also a peach bread, which is something between a cross of a pound cake, coffee cake, and peach preserves, and needless to say, it’s dang good. The rosemary ciabatta bread is also a favorite. In fact, all of the breads are pretty amazing. They also have kolaches, which are made with real sausage and are the perfect way to start your day.

Great Spot for Coffee

Sol y Luna Baking Company has fresh regular coffee as well as lattes, teas, and other coffee creations. ┬áThe beans for the coffee come Wildfire Coffee Roasters down the street. If you want a great cup of coffee in the morning that rivals that of a coffee house, Sol y Luna is it. Grab a blueberry muffin and a cup of Jo, and sit for a while and enjoy your morning brew. They open at 6 AM Tuesday through Friday, making for a great locale to swing to on your way to work in the AM. On weekends, they open a little later– 7:00 AM on Saturday, and 8:00 AM on Sundays. (Sol y Luna is closed on Mondays).

Check them Out at the Farmers’ Market

If you’re not able to make it to their location on De Zavala Rd. in San Antonio, check them out at the Farmers’ Market at the Pearl on Saturdays. Here, you’ll find their pizzas, their fresh breads, and a plethora of their other baked goods, both sweet and savory.
