Texas State students have spoken and the results are in. The best breakfast in San Marcos goes to the Root Cellar Café and Brewery.

Chris Carter, Root Cellar Café manager, said he is thrilled to be voted a student favorite. He can remember being a student and having many food options, but always wanting to go somewhere comfortable and homey.

“We take a lot of pride in trying to serve great food in an environment that’s comfortable and doesn’t make anybody feel out of place,” said Carter. “To be a favorite meal for students is realizing that goal in a big way. I can only hope that we maintain everything they expect of us so they can keep coming.”

Katy Wemmert, Paper Bear sales associate, said she is a frequent patron of the Root Cellar Café along with many of her coworkers. Her favorite breakfast items are the fried potatoes and mimosas.

“I think it’s a cute place to go,” said Wemmert. “It’s a local place, and there’s not really anything else like it.”

Breakfast and lunch are served from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tuesday through Sunday with many options under $10.
