Fine Groceries & Prepared Foods
It’s a South Texas food store with a dash of sophistication where Hotel Emma guests and locals alike can stock up on life’s culinary luxuries or simply enjoy a glass of wine in Brewmeister’s Alley at the end of the day. Hotel Emma Chef and Culinary Director John Brand is responsible for the flavor, quality and eclecticism of Larder’s prepared foods and groceries. Larder is integral to John’s holistic culinary vision, which encompasses Supper, Sternewirth, and the hotel’s unparalleled catering and in-room dining. Twenty-five years after impressive stints at The Little Nell in Aspen, The Broadmoor, and Keswick Hall, John celebrates San Antonio’s rich local sources and international flavor at Larder.

More About Us
“Culinary director John Brand has cooked up an array of options—Supper, Larder, and Sternewirth, all located within the hotel, are not only some of the best restaurants in the Pearl District, but in San Antonio period. Go Supper for supper (shocker) or brunch, Larder for lunch, and Sternewirth for your pregame cocktail.”
“The gourmet market inside the Hotel Emma offers a thoughtfully chosen selection of imported and artisan products, kitchen tools, cookbooks, beers and wines and a deli case filled with house-prepared salads, prepared and house-cured meats, assorted pastries, coffees (including a special Hotel Emma blend from Merit Coffee), and an array of cold and pressed sandwiches. Like everything else in the hotel, this grab-and-go market has its own sense of high-low style.”
“Little sister Larder, the hotel’s coffee shop/bakery/boutique grocer, is perfect for morning and afternoon pick-me-ups and a quick grab-and-go lunch.”
