Twin Sisters Bakery & Cafe
This is a funky little spot in the middle of the stereotypically conservative Alamo Heights neighborhood. It serves breakfast and dinner, but is most popular for lunch. The soup-and-sandwich-type lunch menu and daily specials have a decidedly healthy, and sometimes vegetarian, bent. Don't miss the iced herbal tea, the spinach salad or the turkey burger. The dinner specials are also worth a try, especially the grilled empanadas with ground beef and onions and the potato stir-fry, blended with seasoned spinach and fresh tomatoes. If you have a sweet tooth, a warm snickerdoodle cookie is the way to go. Twin Sisters draws a crowd early, so plan to wait for a table.
I must have eaten at Twin Sisters hundreds of times in the past 20n years. I watched it grow from a humble homecooked hippy cafe, to an overpriced joyless business where they don't care about keeping customers.
I decided after a few bad experiences there to give myself a break for a few months. On my return I arrived to have almost the whole place to myself around 3:00 p.m. The owners were sitting at the large front table and seemed to be angry about something? After 15 minutes passed without anyone taking my order, I politely asked if they were open.
"Hang on" was the response. I returned to my seat and what followed was the poorest excuse for service and food imaginable... Chicken tortilla soup with no chicken. A runny egg salad sandwich on stale bread with browning sprouts. All in all about $16 worth of sub-par food and herb tea in a glass with someone else's lipstick on it!
As I payed for this I remarked that I've been a customer for 20 years and it seems like they've been slipping a little lately.
"Then go eat somewhere else next time" replied owner Pat Stein.
I like the sandwiches but the attitude served up by the owner and overpriced canned ingredients keeps me away.
A cook at the Alamo Heights location has the poorest hygeine of any restaurant employee we've ever encountered. Dirty hands and teeth!
This was once a nice place to eat when they cared more about keeping customers around.
Whole Foods has them beat hands down.
My friends and I went to the twin sisters off of Broadway St. As soon as we walked in, we were treated poorly. The waitress was rude to us when we spoke to her. And instead of being taken to our seats, the waitress jerked her head and pointed at the table. My friend, who is a very sweet woman, got sick after taking a couple of bites of her food. (She had been to this restaurant before, and spoke highly of it.)As she rushed to the restroom to vomit, my other friend got up and told the girl with the mop, "Our friend was sick, could you bring some disinfectant?" The girl with the mop rolled her eyes. When we all settled down and my friend was done being sick, we sat back down at our table. The manager stormed over to us and in the ugliest tone snapped at us, asking, "Did one of YOU get sick?!?!" Instead of asking if we were okay (good customer service) she made my friend get up and clean up her own vomit (BAD customer service.) She then went on to embarass my friend, and in front of the whole café, she directed her staff to make the CUSTOMER clean it up.
I felt wronged, and went to the register to confront the manager. Meanwhile, my friend was cleaning up the mess, crying and still feeling rather sick. The manager ignored me the best she could, walking away repeatedly, checking the phone, etc... and eventually told my friends and I, "You are not welcome here. I don't care what you have to say. She had BETTER clean it up." She was never once concerned that it was her establishment's food that made my friend sick.
Needless to say, we left the restaurant without paying, even though the waitress chased us out to our vehicle. The waitress said, "But, if you don't pay for it, it will come out of my pay," with a frown on her face.
What kind of whacked out restaurant is this? And is that manager sane?
I went there on a whim on a friday night and ate some really good veggie food and it was an amazing experience. They had "Texas ssongwriting hero" Johann Wagner there playing his songs. Great food and on fridays they have some really good music.
Go on a friday and if you'll lucky like me you'll hear some great acoustic tunes.
I am a regular at Twin Sisters. I love the food, but the service has deteriorated over the past year. One day they are "on" the other they are "off."
The lack of service and rudeness is getting to be so bad, I might stop going all together.
When we were visiting San Antonio, we went to the Downtown location. My 18 month old son and I were having breakfast and one of the waitresses was incredibly rude to us. First, she snapped at my son because he was eating an apple and he put the peel on the table. Then, she proceeded to snap at him because he had thrown a piece of fruit on the floor. She also yelled at him for looking out the window of their bakery and finally I heard her talking about us in the back kitchen when I had gone to the restroom. I would NEVER suggest to anyone to go here. Horrible experience!!!! Not child friendly at all!!!
