We grabbed Sunday brunch at Halcyon and it was lackluster. The coffee was pretty good as you'd expect from a Coffee house. It wasn't great. The Halcyon Benedict was really disappointing. Instead of ham, their spin was smoked salmon and cream cheese (a la lox)....More

in the Blue Star Complex, the food portions at the Halcyon looked generous and were when my party ordered. However, most of the tables were dirty and many needed to be bussed. This is off-putting when you want to sit down and enjoy your meal.

We were pleasantly surprised!!! What a cool lounge, coffee, date, networking place! I tried the insomniac and Kale salad. Sis tried a latte- dark not watered down, very tasty! Espresso seems to be expertise even in cocktails.

This eatery is on the 'hop on, hop off ' bus route. We had been doing a 'walk about' in the King Williams neighborhood which included the Blue Star Company, a collection of local artists & their work. We stopped here for a light lunch...More

I stopped here twice, once for a cappuccino and once for a drip coffee, while visiting San Antonio. Seems to be very popular particularly on the weekends. The coffee was very good. They have both indoor and outdoor seating. I didn't stay long be seem...More
