When we lived in San Antonio going out for Sunday brunch was something we all looked forward to each week.
We were able to support a small business, enjoy an amazing meal and spend a few hours lazily at the table chatting about our week.
We have since moved home to our small farm town, where the closest place to Sunday brunch is 30 minutes away.
Some Sundays we drive, enjoy brunch, and hit a few vintage stores and some Sundays we prefer to brunch en la casita.
