We met friends Saturday morning at the Pearl Brewery Farmer's Market to walk around, enjoy the friendly atmosphere, grab some coffee at Local, and even take a short lap along the River Walk to see Carlos Cortez' Grotto. In spite of driving through some heavy rain between Lytle and San Antonio, the morning was spectacular with very much appreciated cool breezes to keep us from melting in the sun.
Local Coffee is a favorite of my son and though I'm just a regular coffee drinker, I can tell you it was more than a step above what you get at your convenience store. Quick service, dapper baristas and no more expensive than Starbucks.
Newell Street bridge is The Grotto. Just go see it and look. Pretty cool.
Overall we had a good experience with Timbo's. It's one of those places that I'd be happy to enjoy again if I'm in the area. We got there at noon when they opened and honestly, I was surprised at the lack of other customers (one couple came in during the full hour we were there), especially given the traffic at the Farmer's Market just across the street. On the other hand, I'm guessing that the majority of the people who attend the organic food farmers market aren't the Timbo's type.
Mark another one off our list of places to visit!
