A Bakery That Offers More Than Just Food

In American, San Antonio on December 3, 2011 at 10:44 pm

Since 1992, San Antonians and visitors alike have come to love Joseph’s Storehouse: Restaurant & Bakery. While the food is delicious, this isn’t why I’m, as Ken Blanchard would say, a “raving fan”. I’m a fan because of its story, values, approach, and because of the customer care and service of owner, Patrick McCurdy.

I love the fact that everything they serve is make fresh daily without “chemicals, preservatives, additives, and other unnatural ingredients”.  I also appreciate Joseph’s counter-cultural mentality, especially here in Texas, that bigger is not always better. For Patrick, the owner, he wants Joseph’s to be better, not bigger. I respect that. Finally, it’s always great to see Patrick welcoming customers with a smile as if he’s welcoming you to the table in his own home. I really value locally owned establishments, but when you add all this, then you make me a raving fan!

Chicken Spaghetti Casserole

Last time I went to Joseph’s Storehouse, I ordered the Chicken Spaghetti Casserole (pic above), which was covered by a layer of melted cheese before I mixed it all up. If you’re in the mood for a casserole, this one should hit the spot. It’s creamy, but not too creamy, with the perfect amount of chicken and spaghetti. Other great options include: chicken pot pie, lasagna, king ranch chicken, meatloaf, a few quiche options and various sandwiches.

Fresh Spinach Salad

A fresh spinach salad is served with the Chicken Spaghetti Casserole. This salad is so good. It comes with fresh strawberries, toasted almonds, and homemade poppy-seed dressing.

Homemade yeast rolls are hot, delicious, and complementary!

Help yourself to some homemade yeast rolls with any meal!

As good as the meals are at Joseph’s, what gets your attention immediately upon entering are the mouth-watering desserts. The only problem is you’ll have a hard time deciding between cookies, muffins, danishes, pies, tea breads, kolaches, and cakes. My two favorites are the chocolate cake and carrot cake. For $5.50 you can get a large, deep slice of fresh, delicious cake.

Chocolate Fudge and Pecan Muffins

If you decide to try out Joseph’s Storehouse, both the bakery and the restaurant are open Monday – Saturday. The bakery is open from 6:0o am – 6:30 pm and the restaurant is open for breakfast and lunch from 6:30 am – 3:oo pm. Don’t show up on Sunday because the restaurant and bakery are closed unless you want to join the Bethlehem Church for worship. You can find information about the church on the bakery’s website or you can check out this article I found. Just click here to read it.
