Real San Antonian: Gilbert De Hoyos + Gilbert De Hoyos Jr. of Barrio Barista
SAN ANTONIO – Step inside Barrio Barista and you’re instantly hit with the smell of coffee, the sound of conversations and a noticeable passion for customer service. “Good food brings good people in,” owner of Barrio Barista Gilbert DeHoyos said. “To be offering fresh coffee on this side of town is kind of unheard of,” barista and co-owner Gilbert De Hoyos Jr. said. “It’s not where you’re at it’s how good you’re customer service is,” De Hoyos Sr. said. De Hoyos Sr. is often found in the kitchen, making their signature barbacoa grilled cheese (add a fried egg on top for a real mind-blowing experience) or conversing with his customers.
