A Dog Friendly Review of Snooze in Alamo Heights

Today we took Miss Abbey for a Snooze. We visited the location in Alamo Heights prior to playing flag football at San Pedro Springs Park. Snooze is a unique looking restaurant which serves breakfast and lunch. Is Snooze dog friendly? It sure is!

There is an outdoor patio in the back, as well as a sliding door which provides a more open feeling atmosphere during nice weather. There is no shortage of unique, dog friendly places in San Antonio and we are on a mission to find them.

Snooze is Inside the Alamo Quarry

This visit to Snooze is within the revitalized Alamo Quarry in San Antonio. If you are looking for more Snooze locations there are two others on the north side of the city. Don’t forget your four-legged family members! The dog friendly restaurant is open from 6:30am – 2:30pm everyday. Whether you are an early bird, or a night owl, you can make it in time for breakfast.

A Dog Friendly Restaurant with a Unique Look

Snooze is not your typical looking restaurant. The dishes, furniture, and bright colors give it a blended retro and modern look. One might say there are almost too many color clashing variations going on inside. However, the outside contains more neutral colors with a hint of orange. That’s more like it. We ate outside anyway because we were eating dog friendly.

Menu and Prices at Snooze

The menu contains a wide variety of options for breakfast. I had a difficult time choosing between specialty pancakes, a breakfast burrito, steak medallions, and a shrimp dish. The average price appears to be a little more than $10. Snooze did not have a gluten-free menu, but the server stated they could modify any order to provide a gluten-free or dairy-free meal.

How Does the Food Taste?

I ended up getting an omelet and immediately regretted the decision. The omelet, potatoes, and even the English muffin were not cooked to my satisfaction. It tasted very bland. It never seems right spending money on something I could have easily prepared at home for a few bucks. I should have gotten one of the specialty dishes. Better luck next time!

The food and prices seem very average at Snooze. Most places are average, that’s why it’s known as average. The basic breakfast dishes took at least 20 minutes which seems a bit long, especially considering mine could have been cooked longer. However, I do prefer most of my food crispy and well done. There are a good variety of options on the menu. I may end up liking one of the specialty dishes much more. I just couldn’t pull the trigger on one this time.

The Snooze Experience

The Alamo Quarry is a very nice area to relax outside and have a bite to eat. Although the patio overlooks Basse Road. Since it was a Sunday morning there wasn’t too much traffic. The view could have been better, but it also could have been much worse. I noticed on our ticket that our server had a very interesting name. I wonder if everyone at Snooze has a “fun” restaurant name?

Overall I’d have to say the experience at Snooze was very average. It wasn’t bad, but it definitely wasn’t anything to get excited about either. The variety on the menu did leave me with the desire to try other options. Is Snooze dog friendly? Yes. Is it a unique place in a good location? Yes. Will you find the best breakfast you have ever eaten? Probably not.

It’s an average place to eat breakfast and most people enjoy average food. The prices are a bit high for average food, but I suppose you have to factor in the experience as well. Snooze is unique, dog friendly, and has a wide variety of choices for breakfast. Have you taken your dog for a Snooze?

I’m a certified personal trainer in San Antonio. After adopting Abbey, I created Places for Pups to help you get outside, exercise with your dog and have fun doing it. We have mastered hiking in Texas Hill Country. Though we emerge from the woods unharmed, we are not responsible for you or your pets. You are solely responsible for trying exercises, or places discussed on this site. Grab the best hiking gear and go dog friendly.  I wish you good fortune on the trails to come.
