Crumpets Restaurant & Bakery Restaurant Review

: In its youth, Crumpets helped to bring San Antonio into the modern restaurant world. Green peppercorns, it is safe to say, made their first appearance in the city here. But the conservative crowd that now dominates the clientele has aged along with the menu, and diners currently seem content with the likes of baked Brie with toasted almonds, ham-stuffed mushrooms and cold shrimp with rémoulade. Pastas of the Alfredo with heavy cream sort prevail; and entrées tend toward chicken with more heavy cream and Champagne sauce or trout almandine. Yet we admit that a port-glazed duck breast might not be unwelcome, that there are times when a well-prepared rack of lamb is just what’s needed, and that the setting continues to be one of the most seductive in town. The attached bakery as well continues to beguile with its pecan brownies, croissants, the matchless Crumpets Delight cake and lapidary tarts. If the dense chocolate cake is frequently served too cold, perhaps the answer is to order it at the beginning of the meal.

Don't miss this beautiful spot

My husband and I love this restaurant and can't give it enough stars. We got married here several years ago along side the creek. We still visit several times a year and to sit outside on the patio amongst the trees. We can't say enough about the food; my favorites are the stuffed artichoke hearts, duck breast, and creme bruelle. Everything is fresh and delicious! Enjoy...
great place

tucked away in a beautiful wooded area you'll forget you're next to a busy street. the food is delicious, they use real butter!! yippeee!!! be sure to try any pasta dish, they make their own. but my all-time favorite is the bison steak, if you love beef this is what you want. or have the ostrich which looks like beef but is very low fat. be sure to save room for dessert. grand marnier creme brulee is one of the best i've ever had. this is one of my favorite places
