Fuller eats - San Antonio: Picnikin's Patio Cafe

Almost religiously I eat a soup and salad for lunch, so I'm always excited when another soup/salad/sandwich lunch spot pops up around my neighborhood. So not too long ago my lunch partners and I decided to venture out to Picnikin's to try something new, and I'm so glad we did!

After operating as a catering business in the Medical Center area since 1988, owners AndrĂ© and Cheryl Bezuidenhout, decided to open in the shopping center at Blanco and 410, several months ago. Picnikin's offers a wide variety of lunch items including soups, salads, sandwiches (gourmet and classic) and grilled items. They also offer great lunch combos - Cup of Soup; 1/2 Classic Sandwich $7Cup of Soup; 1/2 Gourmet Sandwich $7.5Cup of Soup; Side Caesar or Tossed Green Salad $7.

While we were there we tried:

Roasted Poblano Pepper Soup - excellent!

Chicken Tortilla

Sweet Potato Fries - excellent taste but wish they were a bit crispier

Chef Salad - as tasty as it looks!

The Backyard - a sandwich off the gourmet list that includes Freshly sliced smoked turkey breast, premium ham, swiss cheese, black olives, lettuce, and mayonnaise.

The menu is quite extensive and it was so hard to choose from all of the items - they all sounded so good! As of recently they have added a dinner menu and a wine menu - I'll be back for dinner and/or happy hour. They are open Monday-Thursday 11am-9pm and Friday-Saturday 11am-10pm. Check them out here!
