The Los Patios spot will be spearheaded by Blue Heron Recovery, another San Antonio-based drug and alcohol rehab center that provides outpatient treatment.

SerenityStar’s Comfort Cafés — located in SA or Smithville, about 100 miles west of here — offer breakfast selections such as stuffed pancakes, waffles, French toast, crepes and omelettes. Lunch options include a large variety of salads, cold sandwiches, burgers and chicken entrees.

Worth noting is that all of the café staff, from waitstaff to cooks, are in some state of their own recovery process through the SerenityStar program.

The groups aims to have the Los Patios location open by April or May.
