A new brunch spot with a twist opened March 1 at the Alamo Quarry Market.

Employees say Snooze, An A.M. Eatery is the place for a “fine-dining breakfast party” at 255 E. Basse Road, Suite 160. It opened in the site that once housed EZ’s Brick Oven & Grill.

Brothers Jon and Adam Schlegel started Snooze in Colorado after deciding breakfast was missing a celebratory feel.

The concept caught on. Snooze now has 18 locations in California, Colorado, Arizona and Texas.

Christopher Edwards, aka “Oso Fabuloso,” is the general manager of Snooze at the Quarry. Edwards has been in the food industry since he was a teenager.

After opening the Austin location, Edwards started to ready the San Antonio site, the debut prompted by Travel & Leisure Magazine naming the Alamo City the “friendliest city in America” in 2016.

The Quarry location is the first Snooze restaurant with a sound system in the kitchen. Guests can have fun at the bar or with friends in a booth, or enjoy the outdoors on the patio with a cup of coffee.

“Brunch has always been about the experience instead of your traditional breakfast.” Edwards said.

Classic items include omelets, huevos rancheros or eggs Benedict, or for those who like something different, chilaquiles Benedict or a breakfast pot pie.

Guests with a sweet tooth can enjoy two dishes topped with vanilla crème anglaise, which is French for English cream — pineapple upside-down pancakes made with buttermilk batter and pineapple tidbits, and “O-M-G” French toast, a brioche decorated with fresh strawberries and toasted coconut.

The majority of the menu items are gluten-free or can be modified; vegan options also are available. The bar at Snooze mixes all kinds of drinks, whether it’s a personal favorite or a house specialty. The latter range from a Morning Margarita, an Mmm Mmm Mimosa or a seasonal Droppin’ Beetz Bloody Mary made with apple and puréed beets.

In addition to providing breakfast or brunch, Snooze and its employees, called Snoozers, believe in giving back to the community and practicing sustainability.

“We do our best to work with community partners that fall in line with our core values,” Edwards said.

Snoozers volunteer with Green Spaces Alliance, Kinetic Kids and the San Antonio Food Bank.

The restaurant is pet-friendly. Hours are 6:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. daily, but it is closed on Thanksgiving and Christmas.
