New restaurant at Stinson Airport is paving the way for Southside youth

The new Trailblazer Café at Stinson Municipal Airport is dedicated not only to the aviation pioneers of the past, but also to the pioneers of the present and the future. And, there’s a juicy, stacked burger to go with it.

The restaurant, which serves a full menu including burgers, sandwiches, salads, smoothies and coffee seven days a week from 6 a.m. to 10 p.m., is part of a revitalization plan to connect the historic airport to its surrounding community of Southside.

An engine of opportunity

The Trailblazer Café is the brainchild of Joshua Smith, a pilot and army veteran who earlier this year noticed a vacant space in the southwest corner of the Stinson Terminal with west-facing windows overlooking the airfield runways.
