This month’s cover, captured by the brilliant photographer Al Rendon, features a collection of curious “Twisties” at a stop along the San Antonio Botanical Garden’s ROOTED route! Now through October 30th, over 20 sculptures by acclaimed contemporary artist Steve Tobin will be displayed throughout the garden for this monumental exhibition. As we strolled through the garden, bright and towering structures seemed to morph into something new from every point of view. Smaller sculptures tucked naturally into the foliage made for surprising discoveries along the path. Inspired by nature’s power, grace, and complexity, all of Tobin’s sculptures evoke curiosity. His Steelroots series includes smooth, dancing, abstract interpretations of nature, negative space, and shifting shadows. A harmonious contrast to his Bronze Roots series showcasing casts of intricate organic forms like the roots of upturned trees. Don’t let high temperatures put a stop to the adventure; you can arrive as early as 8:00 a.m. to beat the heat!

SIDEWALKS COMING TO 78209, COUNCIL DISTRICT 10

The $1.2 billion-dollar Bond Issue passed by San Antonio voters in May 2022 includes funds to build new and repair old sidewalks in the city. For Councilman Clayton Perry, that means funds are available for District 10 residents to add sidewalks to their neighborhoods. A Perry spokesperson told 78209 Magazine that one of the targets for new sidewalks is areas adjacent to public schools. “Sidewalks are a safety issue for kids going to and from schools,” the spokesperson explained. “And there are any number of schools where sidewalks just weren’t built along neighboring streets. That means students too often are forced to walk in the street as they head to and from school. So, those areas will be a major focus for us to allocate funds for new sidewalks.” And he added, “There are other areas along some major highways in District 10 that lack sidewalks. Like Eisenhauer Road, Austin Highway, N. New Braunfels Ave., and others. 8 78209magazine.com

We are interested in funding those construction projects, too, if neighbors want to add sidewalks.” The spokesman noted sidewalks are not universally welcomed by residents. “For a variety of complex reasons, some folks want sidewalks, and others do not. Our commitment is to support what neighbors want to do. If they want new sidewalks, we’ll try to help them accomplish that goal. But we do not plan to force folks to accept sidewalks.” Sidewalks cost some $1 million per mile to build – or $75,000 to $100,000 per city block, depending on the length of the block. For neighbors who want to add sidewalks, the spokesperson recommends calling the city’s helpline at 311. That number connects citizens to specially-trained customer service representatives who can assist with City service requests -potholes, stray animals, downed street signs, trash collection, new sidewalks, sidewalk repair, and other City requests.

How many of us stay at the same job for 25 years? Increasingly, folks move around from job to job, but not Robert Lopez. Lopez, 57, has been driving a trash truck in Olmos Park since 1997. It’s a job he loves. He said, “We’re like a family. I got to know all of the residents on my route. I meet their kids and their grandparents. The residents are so polite.” Driving his truck through the community “feels like you’re in a parade every day. The residents wave at me, and all the kids are so happy to see me come through their neighborhoods.”

LONGTIME OLMOS PARK TRASH TRUCK DRIVER RETIRES

Lopez was born in San Antonio. He graduated from Fox Tech High School in 1983. He is especially proud of his two boys – Robert and Richard. Robert graduated from Baylor and Richard from UT Austin. He told me, “They both have good jobs, and they are making good money.” Olmos Park Public Works Director Gilbert Deleon said, “I started in Olmos Park in 1998. Robert was already on staff. He was the one who trained me on how to drive the trucks. He is very dependable, always on time, always here. He has always been a hard worker. I wish him the best in his future endeavors.” “People tell me they are going to miss me, and that makes me feel good.” Lopez plans to expand his landscaping business now that he is retired. “I find it very relaxing.”

WONDERSLICE OPENS AT PEARL Potluck Hospitality and Chef Ben Schwartz recently announced that WonderSlice, the first pizza concept at Pearl, is open in the Pearl Food Hall. The new restaurant offers pizza by the slice, plus full pies, homemade subs, salads, and soft-serve ice cream. The operators say the name WonderSlice pays tribute to the heyday of neighborhood pizza joints, most of which specialized in offering pizza by the slice. In the news release announcing the new concept, the team wrote, “The name conveys a sense of nostalgia, with a promise of ‘wonder by the slice.’” Select menu items include the Ball Park pizza, which includes Italian sausage, red onion, broccoli rabe, and chili flakes;

the Green Monster pizza with parmesan cream, shredded zucchini, and pesto; and the Meatball or Chicken Parmesan sub with marinara sauce, fresh mozzarella, parmesan, and basil. Broccoli rabe, known in Italian as rapini, is a green vegetable that looks like leafy broccoli but is more closely related to the turnip. Wonder Slice is open from 8:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. Sunday – Thursday and 8:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m. Friday and Saturday.

BUSINESS PROFILE -

Swimming Through the Generations By Meredith Kay Photography by David Teran

We all have memories from childhood of those special places where we congregated with family and friends. For some, it might be a local park or that one house on the block that everyone seemed to gravitate toward. However, for generations of Alamo Heights residents, the Alamo Heights swimming pool has served as the background for recreational and social memories throughout the years. Built in 1947, the Heights Pool, as it is lovingly referred to, hosted area families and aquatic fitness enthusiasts for over 40 years before maintenance costs and neglect threatened to close it for good. Initially operated by the city of Alamo Heights, city leaders could no longer afford to keep it open without significant repairs and upgrades. It was slated to be filled in and repurposed when Rick Shaw, who grew up swimming at the Heights Pool, dropped his kids off to swim for the day and learned of the plight of his beloved community icon.

side to keep the systems running smoothly. He is very humble as he describes how he gave the property, and the facilities, a face lift, revitalizing the area with new landscaping, brighter colors, and updated amenities. The pool has always had a great family vibe, and it was his goal to preserve the character of the “little oasis in ‘09” while creating a modern facility that would continue to make memories for generations to come. Many residents in the area grew up spending hot summer days at the Heights Pool, and this tradition continues as those neighbors now bring their children to the pool for swim lessons and to get together with friends and family. In fact, Ann Haworth has been teaching swim lessons to young ‘09ers for over 25 years, and she now manages a team of instructors that will help carry on her legacy. The Heights Pool is also home to the Pool Sharks swim team that competes with other area swim teams throughout the season.

Rick says, “I was in real estate in the ’80s, and this interesting opportunity presented itself. I worked with the city of Alamo Heights to lease the property to me, and I decided to undertake a complete remodel of the facilities, the pool, and mechanical equipment. I wanted to invest in something that meant a lot to me personally and to the residents in the area who grew up making memories there.”

Admission to the Heights Pool is membership-based, and passes are available online or at the pool office beginning in late April. Those interested in taking swim lessons only, however, do not need to purchase a membership. The pool season begins the first weekend in May and runs through Labor Day weekend.

Shaw has been running the Heights Pool with a dedicated team of employees for 32 years, and he shows no signs of slowing down. He is grateful for the loyalty of the employees who have helped him maintain this iconic community pool and credits people like Mike Padulo, who has been with him from the start taking care of everything on the engineering

When Shaw reflects on his tenure as the owner of the Heights Pool, he recalls, “I have seen many families move in and out of the Alamo Heights area over the years. We have people who used to work here as lifeguards when they were teenagers who now bring their own families to swim and enjoy the pool, and that really makes it all worth it.”

MEET YOUR NEIGHBORS -

Opening Doors and Creating a Community By Meredith Kay Photography by David Teran

It’s no secret that people are moving to San Antonio in record numbers, and the city is experiencing tremendous growth as we recover from the pandemic. The boundaries of our city are expanding, but the Alamo Heights community continues to thrive and remain consistent. Real estate in the ’09 area is at a premium, and one area couple has capitalized on this industry’s growth and cherishes the community they have been a part of for nearly 25 years. Ron and Kathy Ripps met through mutual friends, and they have been married for 24 years now. Kathy was born and raised in Kansas City, but she fell in love with San Antonio 30 years ago when she was visiting a friend and moved south shortly thereafter. Kathy taught special education at Bradley Middle School before returning to school at Our Lady of the Lake University to earn her advanced degrees in psychology and counseling. She loved the tightknit community that she found in Alamo Heights, and once she and Ron were married, they decided to settle down and raise a family here. Ron is a fifth-generation San Antonian and a graduate of McCollum High School. He is a savvy investor and active stock trader, and he has also built a small real estate empire with over 60 rental properties across the state of Texas. Some of the properties are long-term rentals, and some are vacation rentals. Ron and Kathy’s daughter, Amber Breunig, who also lives in San Antonio, manages the properties with her father. In 2007, Kathy met the parents of one her students and was intrigued with their real estate business. She loved working with students and admired the dedication of the staff at Bradley Middle School, but she decided to change careers and became a real estate agent with Kuper Realty. The brokerage firm eventually merged with Sotheby’s International, and today,

Kathy is one of their top-selling agents, specializing in luxury properties from downtown San Antonio to the Boerne area. Kathy loves the Alamo Heights community and has noticed that it is always attracting new residents. She says, “There are always new faces moving into the area. The outstanding schools draw families in, and I’ve noticed that people who grew up in the area often return to their childhood neighborhoods after finishing school or moving around. Alamo Heights is very community-focused, and everyone knows their neighbors.” Ron and Kathy Ripps live in a traditional ranch-style home that was built in 1939. They have made many changes to the house over the years and are especially proud of their beautiful yard and the huge trees surrounding the property. They love the walkability of their neighborhood, and Kathy loves that she can walk to the grocery store and interact with her neighbors when she is out and about. The couple is very active in their community, and they love to patronize the arts scene in San Antonio. They are members of the Los Amigos Ski Club and have traveled the world, most recently returning from the British Virgin Islands. Kathy is an active member of the National Association of Women Business Owners (NAWBO) and is proud of the work that her colleagues do to raise scholarship funds for dynamic young female students. She is also active with Impact SA, a women’s non-profit collective that awards high-impact grants to other non-profit organizations serving the Greater San Antonio area. Ron is an active member of the San Antonio Rotary Club. Together they are a force to be reckoned with, and they look forward to continuing to contribute to a community they are proud to call home.

HOME I M PROVEMENT -

Life’s a Beach The key to making a vacation home feel more than a temporary landing spot comes from adding warmth and personal touches that reflect the family home. “For me, life is better at the beach,” says Kelley Frost, owner, and principal of Frosted Home in Alamo Heights. “But I’m not a fan of kitschy beach décor. Striking a balance between comfort and sophistication keeps me from going all-in on seashells and palm trees.” The high ceilings in this home’s central core provide openness, and the color palette of creams, blues, and greens reflects the Gulf waters and beach nearby. “Chip and Jo would be proud of the shiplap throughout the house,” says Frost. “Keep in mind that the beach, lake, or mountaintop cabin are places where you can do things differently from your primary residence. Here is a place to have fun with your décor and lighten up the aesthetic from your everyday home environment.” The large kitchen island makes gathering around for entertaining as easy as a summer breeze. Quartzite countertops offer a beautiful aesthetic with lower maintenance than marble.

Glass and acrylic on the tables and bar cart give the room a fresh, contemporary vibe. Slipcovered sofas provide comfort and softness and can be easily washed to keep their crisp linen appearance. “Ask about performance fabrics,” Frost advised. “We’ve come a long way since Sunbrella hit the market, and the new finishes take the sweat equity out of cleaning up spills.” “Second homes bring family and friends together, so focusing on guests’ comfort becomes a priority.” Frost suggests using bedding that combines luxury and practicality, like one of her favorite linens by Lili Alessandra. “Crisp cotton and lush velvets are perfect for the beach, and most of the line is machine washable making it perfect for the guest room. I always get asked about keeping whites bright and am amazed by how well the Lili Alessandra coverlets look after washing them. With my pair of Westies jumping up on the bed, I favor linens that are dog friendly.” With so many family-friendly options when it comes to decorating a beach house, the world truly is your oyster.

Kelley Frost started designing homes at an early age using her father’s engineering scratch pads and her mom’s Good Housekeeping magazines to develop floorplans for her Barbie dolls. She created a “Barbie Dream House” before Mattel did! Real life placed her on differing career paths including advertising executive, VP of marketing, college professor and eventually her own private counseling practice; she’s really Dr. Frost! Working with clients and encouraging them to pursue their dreams motivated her to fulfill one of her own by opening the doors of Frosted Home in 2018.

HOMETOWN HERO

Col (ret.) Clarence E. “CEM” Maxwell, PhD By Ron Aaron Eisenberg

Clarence E. “CEM” Maxwell’s Army career took him all over the world. But, when he joined the Army in July 1970, he wasn’t planning on spending a long time in uniform. Maybe a few years at most. In the end, Maxwell spent nearly 28 years in uniform, retiring as a colonel in October 1997.

Maxwell was commissioned as a second lieutenant in the Army in 1970. He earned a Master’s Degree in Hospital Administration from Baylor University in 1979 and a Doctor of Philosophy in Health Architecture from Texas A&M in 1985.

He was born in Port Sulphur, Plaquemines Parish, Louisiana, where his dad worked for the Gulf Oil Company. The family moved to Kilgore, Texas, not long after his birth. And that’s where Maxwell grew up and met and married his wife, Kathy, on July 3, 1969.

His military career spanned the globe, from Europe to Korea, to Teheran, and back to Ft. Sam Houston in San Antonio. His final posting in the Army was as Commandant and Dean of the Army Medical Department Center and School at Fort Sam Houston. And then, as a civilian, he managed the last of the base realignment programs (BRAC) that brought all enlisted medical training to Ft. Sam Houston.

From Kilgore, he went to college at Texas A&M, College Station, and was a member of the Corps. He enrolled in a fiveyear architecture program.

Among his many accomplishments, Maxwell played a major role in the design and construction of BAMC, Brooke Army Medical Center in San Antonio.

Why architecture? “A professor turned me on to the profession, and I figured there would always be a need for architects.” He specialized in Health Facilities. A&M had been an all-male institution until 1963, when Texas A&M’s president, General James Earl Rudder, opened its doors to African-Americans and women. It was a landmark decision. Of note, Maxwell’s wife, Kathy, became one of the first females to attend the university.

When I asked him for his thoughts on his military career, he told me, “I’d do it all over again, in a heartbeat.”

22 78209magazine.com

Maxwell and his wife have two daughters and four grandchildren – two boys and a girl. They all live in San Antonio. But Maxwell laughed and shared, “I really think the kids live in our living room,” which he doesn’t mind at all.

THE PUBLIC AND PRIVATE SCHOOLS OF ‘09

Guthrie most recently served as the principal of Barbara Bush Middle School in North East ISD. During his 19year career in NEISD, Guthrie also served as an assistant principal at the middle and high school levels, a special education teacher, and a behavioral specialist. He was inspired to enter the education field by his brother who has special needs. “I’m thrilled to welcome Dr. Guthrie to AHISD,” Dr. Dana Bashara, superintendent of schools, said. “He is an experienced educator and instructional leader who believes in inspiring student ownership of their learning. I know he will help us build on the academic achievements at AHJS and bring together our community of students, teachers, and parents.” Guthrie earned his doctorate in Education from Lamar University in 2022, a master’s degree in education from the University of Texas at San Antonio in 2002, and a bachelor’s degree in psychology from UTSA in 1990. “I love what I do, and that’s working with kids,” Dr. Guthrie said. “I really want to see our kids grow into 21st-century learners. You’ll hear me say this a lot, ‘own your own learning.’ Education isn’t passive. Kids have to be actively involved. I love to see them build and create as they demonstrate learning and mastery.”

New Principal Named at Alamo Heights Junior School Dr. Stuart Guthrie has been appointed principal of Alamo Heights Junior School.

Although he is new to AHISD, Guthrie’s family has roots in the community. His grandmother graduated from AHHS in 1956, and his grandfather built Alamo Heights Baptist Church. “It excites me to rejoin a community that’s been part of my life since I was a kid going to the Alamo Heights pool. It’s a very special place. Not only do I have some history, but now I also have a future here as AHJS principal,” Dr. Guthrie said. Out of the office, Guthrie enjoys being outdoors, cooking, playing guitar with his daughter, and spending time with his three dogs. He will join Alamo Heights ISD later this summer.

COMMUNITY LEADERS

Great Leadership Starts with Self-Leadership By Angel Santiago

Self-leadership is the most essential quality one can develop, and if you are not succeeding at leading yourself, leading others will be extremely challenging. When you aren’t leading yourself and your life with intention, you will fall short when leading others, period. There are inevitable challenges that arise when growing into a great and influential leader. Positioning yourself at the helm of your life and taking control through every twist and turn is an essential first step towards authentic leadership beyond yourself. Investing in personal development can ensure you are equipped with the tools and practices needed to face leadership challenges at work, in your community, and beyond. Self-leadership is ultimately about self-mastery and at the root of self-mastery is self-awareness. This means you are aware of and managing your abilities and strengths. The ability to recognize and control your thoughts and feelings will allow you, as a leader, to let go of your limiting beliefs and defensive habits, such as conflict avoidance. Self-awareness will also enable you to connect more deeply with yourself and your values and help your leadership presence flow naturally. Connecting with yourself at this level allows you to be more authentically engaged with those around you, build trusting relationships, and have a higher potential to serve others through your leadership. Like most people, you may routinely wear several hats; but being multifaceted shouldn’t change you - the individual - who steps into each one of these roles. If you hold unaddressed internal conflicts, challenges, or limitations, you will surely carry those over into every role you step into, including leadership. While reflecting on the enigma of life, Socrates, the ancient philosopher, said, “an unexamined life is not worth living.” With our busy schedules, it can be difficult to find time to

reflect on and examine who we are. Still, if you truly want to get ahead in life, you must have a firm grasp on the importance of self-reflection and dedicate time for yourself. Until you better understand who you are, how you operate, and your strengths and weaknesses, you will not make much improvement when faced with setbacks and knowing how to overcome them. Zoee Salazar, Health Coach and Co-Owner of Alamo Heights Nutrition, understands the importance of self-reflection very well. “I got really focused on my business, which is great, but I strayed away from my journaling practice. And you can’t have a flourishing business if you yourself aren’t flourishing.” Many of us don’t spend enough time in introspection. This is unfortunate because, without self-awareness, your leadership potential is limited. Zoee added, “Self-awareness helped me identify that I had a few blocks [in business], but I was the only one in my way.” One of the best ways to become self-aware is by developing a mindfulness practice. According to mindful.org, mindfulness is the basic human ability to be fully present, aware of where we are and what we’re doing, and not overly reactive or overwhelmed by what’s happening around us. Mindfulness is always available to us through meditations and body scans or mindful moment practices like taking time to pause and breathe throughout the day. To help you start your mindfulness journey, I’d like to offer you a free pass to try Aura - the world’s best app for guided meditations, stories, and life coaching tracks for stress, sleep, anxiety, and much more. Scan the code to claim your 30-day Aura guest pass: Blessings, LifeCoachAngel

FOR THE LOVE OF ANIMALS

Firework Safety for Pets From the Animal Defense League of Texas Humans may enjoy the revelry of fireworks, but for some pets, fireworks, like thunderstorms, can cause a great deal of stress which may include: · Violent shaking, trembling · Excessive drooling · Barking, howling · Trying to hide or get into/out of the house, fence, or other enclosure · Refusing to eat food · Potentially losing bladder or bowel control or experiencing temporary diarrhea from prolonged stress How can you protect your pet from the stress associated with fireworks? Here’s some advice from the Animal Defense League of Texas: 1. Keep your pets indoors. 2. Close the curtains or blinds and turn on the TV or radio to provide some distraction. 3. Provide treat toys, such as KONG’s filled with their favorite food, to help keep their minds busy and distract them from the fireworks. 30 78209magazine.com

4. Provide a quiet place, such as a carrier or crate, which may give your pet a sense of security and comfort. 5. Use a leash or carrier if you must go outside with your pet to keep them from running off, which is a common response to stress and fear. 6. Practice fire safety! Keep pets away from matches, open fires, and fireworks. Pets may try to sniff (or eat) fireworks, and pet hair can easily catch fire if they get too close. 7. Take pets for a walk before the fireworks begin. Some pets are too frightened to go out once the fireworks are popping, and this may lead to an “accident” later. 8. Make sure your pet’s ID/Microchip is current. Your pets should always have proper identification tags with current information in case they get lost. Microchipping is strongly recommended. Please talk to your vet and schedule your appointment- typically the cost of a microchip is about $30. Some dogs don’t seem to notice the fireworks. But some pets cannot be calmed by petting or talking to them; they are simply too upset by the noise. Animals who are frightened/ stressed can hurt themselves and possibly escape if left alone,


and the results can be fatal. Frightened animals running loose are in great danger of being lost or, worse yet, hit by a car. For this reason, please be prepared to be there for your pet during the Fourth of July and New Year’s Day. In the event your pet does get lost, we recommend the following: · Search your property thoroughly · Contact your microchip company

July 1 - American Zoo Day July 15 - National Pet Fire Safety Day

· Try to attract your pet: Leave food and water outside along with your pet’s bed and a worn article of your clothing. · Post Lost Flyers, ask your neighbors, visit the City of San Antonio Animal Care Services website, and check lost and found ads daily! ·Lastly, register your pet with Petco Love Lost which is a national lost/found pet tool utilizing patented facial recognition technology to reunite pets and families.

Visit them at: https://lost.petcolove.org To learn more about The Animal Defense League visit: www.adltexas.org, and don’t forget to use the following hashtags: #petcolovelost and #ADLtexas. We hope these tips can help keep your pets calm and safe during the fireworks celebrations.

GIVING BACK

Helping to Heal the Hurt in Uvalde Children’s Bereavement Center of South Texas launches a $2.4 million fundraising campaign to open Uvalde Center providing free grief support. The recent tragedy in Uvalde highlights the need for mental health services and support not only for the families and friends of the 21 victims but for the entire community. The Children’s Bereavement Center of South Texas (CBCST) is launching a $2.4 million fundraising campaign to expand its presence in Uvalde. The $2.4 million five-year operating budget includes real estate, staff salaries and training for CBCST at Uvalde. Because all services offered by CBCST are free, financial donations are essential. Its two-pronged plan for assistance includes: (1) a center offering free grief support programs to the children, families and community members living with grief, and (2) grief and trauma training for Uvalde schoolteachers and counselors. Fundraising for the project has already brought in donations from several San Antonio businesses and individuals. Anyone interested in donating may do so online at https://give.cbcst. org/uvalde. “Grief is not a linear process,” says Marian Sokol, Executive Director for CBCST. “The Uvalde community and surviving families will go through many stages over an extended period of time – most likely years. We will be here for them for as long as it takes.” 32 78209magazine.com

CBCST was on the ground in Uvalde within hours of the mass shooting and counselors specifically trained in grief and trauma have remained. They are currently operating out of a temporary space and plan to open a more permanent location in the next 45 days. “The Uvalde Center is intended to be a very calm, welcoming space for anyone in the community who feels they need help,” Dr. Sokol says. “Grief takes time, and our intent is not to rush anyone through that process. We just want those in Uvalde to know that we are there if and when they need us.” Ultimately, the Center in Uvalde will be modeled after the CBCST, offering the same services. These include individual counseling, grief camps and peer support groups for children, parents and caregivers. The second prong of the plan will begin immediately with grief and trauma training for schoolteachers and counselors in the Uvalde Consolidated Independent School District (UCISD). In fact, CBCST already has some connection to UCISD counselors through a recent virtual training that specifically addressed how to talk to grieving children. “CBCST is honored to support the many dedicated educators under the leadership of Superintendent Dr. Hal Harrell, who have courageously supported the families of UCISD


The Bereavement Center in Uvalde is intended to be a very calm, welcoming space for anyone in the community who feels they need help.

during this unimaginable tragedy,” Dr. Sokol says. “We will remain onsite in Uvalde in the days, weeks, and months ahead to support families who are emotionally exhausted and to provide grief education training to teachers, counselors and staff.” The Children’s Bereavement Center of South Texas (CBCST) has secured a lease for a space in Uvalde located at 221 N. Getty. This space will be used for “Comfort and Consults,” a space where families can feel safe and secure while inquiring about grief support services. All services provided will come at no cost to families, like the location in San Antonio. The space is scheduled to be open to the public in the next two weeks. Counselors from CBCST continue to travel to Uvalde daily and are available to community members at the Benson Education Complex. Visit the CBCST website at http://www.cbcst.org The team at 78209 Magazine sends our love and encouragement in the healing journey to those impacted by the recent tragedies in Uvalde. We are honored to help spread the word and support the Children’s Bereavement Center of South Texas’ fundraising efforts in our

CommonWealth Coffeehouse & Bakery Serving a Wealth of Flavors to the ‘09 Community By Meredith Kay 38 78209magazine.com

EAT IN ‘09

-

Just like the way the forest smells after it rains, freshly brewed coffee is up there on the list of life’s most delicious aromas, and one local coffeehouse is serving up cup after cup of this necessary elixir with uncommon quality. CommonWealth Coffeehouse & Bakery opened in 2015 with a vision of serving the community in a warm and welcoming space with only the highest quality coffee and the freshest and most authentic, French-inspired bakery cuisine. The coffeehouse resides in a completely renovated, historic home at 118 Davis Court, just off Broadway, behind The Wash Tub, and features a charming, organic garden complete with resident chickens who supply fresh eggs daily for the delicious breakfast and brunch items on the menu. The owners of CommonWealth Coffeehouse & Bakery have worked very hard to create a place where guests can relax, work, and enjoy the best coffee in the most comfortable communal space around. The Alamo Heights location is the flagship coffeehouse location, but there are also three other CommonWealth locations around San Antonio, with plans to expand into three other locations over the next year. At the helm in the kitchen serving all of the locations is the Executive Chef and Head Baker, Vince Lacoste. The original owners had wanted to bring French artisanal pastries and breads to CommonWealth. They searched worldwide before finding their Executive Chef from a small village in the Basque region of Southwestern France, nestled between the border of Spain and Bordeaux. He is a third-generation baker, and one bite of his buttery, flaky croissants and decadent pastries will render you a customer for life. CommonWealth Coffeehouse is proud to serve Cuvée Coffee, which is roasted in Spicewood, Texas, and they hold steady to their mission to promote local trade by engaging with other local small businesses, artisans, and non-profit organizations to support the communities that they serve. The staff at CommonWealth is treated like family, and that attitude translates to outstanding customer service. They make sure to have the right people working to serve their community which means so much. During the pandemic, CommonWealth didn’t lay off a single employee. Instead, they found creative ways to continue to serve the community, like working with St. Vincent de Paul and Haven for Hope to feed the homeless when other resources and partners were stretched thin. They wanted staff to remain steady and provided with a consistent income so that when things started to pick up, they would be ready to serve customers again and grow as things opened up. CommonWealth Coffeehouse & Bakery is open seven days a week and serves a mouth-watering menu with breakfast all day, as well as house-made soups, salads, and sandwiches served on freshly baked French bread. Weekends greet a loyal crowd of brunch enthusiasts with a more extensive menu featuring crêpes, omelettes, and even a French version of the Classic Mollete served open-faced with refried beans, fontina cheese, and pico de gallo on toasted Viennois bread. Brunch is very popular, so plan to arrive early and grab a table in the garden. CommonWealth Coffeehouse & Bakery 118 Davis Ct.
