This place is in our top 10! While their speciality is house-made gelato (with flavors that change with the season), they also have panini and coffee. This makes it a perfect stop during your evening stroll along the Mission Reach part of the Riverwalk, and also a good option for a light lunch.

Our favorite Tex-Mex place on the river! Ignore the touristy spots that have hosts hawking their wares and go straight to Boudro's. Eat outside along the Riverwalk, in the middle of the action. And don't miss the tableside guacamole and prickly pear margarita.
