We went here for breakfast. It took awhile to get the food but it was so good! Worth the wait. Best part it wasn't super pricey.

Everytime we visit San Antonio, Guenther House is on our "Must Do" list. We always have a nice meal at a reasonable price. Wonderful little shop you can browse while you wait to be seated. You can tour some of the rooms of the house and the grounds around the home also. It is an easy walk south along the... More

We enjoyed our visit to the Guenther House visit. The breakfast & baked goods are exceptional! It is a beautiful hotel/restaurant along the river. We enjoyed the atmosphere & food. If we ever visit San Antonio again, I would love to stay here. The history of the Pioneer baking flour along with the wonderful baked goods is wonderful. They also... More

We visited Guenther Hosue for the history of it, and stopped in to their little restaurant for lunch. The food was very tasty and the baked goods divine! There is a stop on the trolley line with a short walk, and you can see some lovely older architecture.

We went on a Tuesday morning and waited less than 5 minutes. They serve lots of different favors of coffee, which I love! I had the waffles with blackberries and cream. Best waffles I've ever had. Husband had amazing biscuits with gravy. The gravy was just ok. The biscuits with blackberry preserves were amazing. It's a great place in an... More

We hadn't been having much luck finding great food in San Antonio until we came here for breakfast. We went on a Sunday, so it was incredibly busy. We had an hour wait. But our time was spent looking at the museum and gift shop. They provide coffee while you wait, and we also spent some time at the pastry... More

We visited on a Friday for breakfast/lunch. We had a wait of about 30 minutes, but it went by fast as you could explore the house and gift shop. The food was tasty and the portion sizes were more than we could eat. Our coffee cups were continuously filled. As we walked in the door, we admired the variety of... More

It is awesome to see a place with such an impact on our world. There is a cool little coffee shop with giant cinnamon rolls. Other than that, there is not much to see.
