Mi Tierra Restaurant & Bakery- Review

Each time my family visits San Antonio's Historic Market Square I always make sure to stop at Mi Tierra Restaurant and Bakery.


I absolutely adore Mi Tierra for two reason; their ambiance and their bakery. Mi Tierra is decorated Christmas year round. When you walk in you will see brightly colored decorations hanging from the ceiling and Christmas lights strung all over. It is beautiful and fun! 


When you walk through the doors of Mi Tierra you automatically notice a crowd of people that are hypnotized by a glass case that holds amazing bakery items. According to Mi Tierra's website, the bakery has been in operation since 1957 and they have a basement bakery where baked goods and candies are brought up throughout the day. If you walk into Mi Tierra and you think that the crowd looks too overwhelming to stay, don't worry, the line moves quickly and while you wait you can look in the glass case or grab a paper menu and try to figure out what treats to order.  


Each time I visit Mi Tierra I must get at least one pecan praline; fresh pralines are the best! I normally try to grab a few other bakery treats so the family can try something new. I have never been disappointed with any of my selections. If you need help with what a certain bakery item is you can either ask when it is your turn or you can save time and grab a paper menu. 


If you are a local, if you are a local that has out of town company or if you are a tourist, Mi Tierra is a must visit while in San Antonio. Each time we have visited, the staff has always been extremely nice and welcoming and there is also live Mariachi  music that will play for a small fee, but it is worth it. If you cannot make it to the Market, you can order these awesome treats online! They make great gifts or you can kick back and eat them all yourself; I know I would and could.
