San Antonio will soon host two Postino wine cafes

Postino offers San Antonio something more to wine. Phoenix-based wine cafe brand adds San Antonio to its list of locations nationwide, not only at The Rim but also nearby pearl.

Last week, Postino confirmed a Rim location, a 5,000 square foot cafe, slated to open next spring, but it looks like a second Postino is planned on Broadway. Postino representatives were unavailable for comment. However, plans submitted to the Texas Department of Licensing and Regulation show Postino working on a 4,000 square foot slice at 2600 Broadway, less than a mile from Pearl.

A little of this, a little of that via Postino to come.

The all-day restaurant and wine cafe brand has a cult following with current and upcoming locations throughout Texas, California, Georgia, Colorado and Arizona. Postino prides itself on its warm and eclectic atmosphere where “drinking wine for lunch is not a crime”.

Patrons can expect to sip 30 boutique wines by the glass and craft beers as well as bites like bruschetta, paninis, salads and a range of charcuterie boards and sharing dishes. Postino also offers brunch with $6 mimosas and wine cocktails.

Postino co-founder and CEO Lauren Bailey previously told MySA.com that she is originally from San Antonio. Adding cafes to the city therefore seemed natural.

Postino WineCafe adds another location in San Antonio.  The Phoenix-based restaurant specializes in affordable wines served with a menu of bruschetta and panini sandwiches.

Bottom-up projects

“Feeling a connection and alignment with a community is what drives us to open our doors and a new location,” Bailey said. “Honestly, it comes down to a feeling in my gut that this is our next home. I was born in San Antonio, so it’s part of my personal roots. There’s so much to love about the city.
