Beautiful historic home set right along the river. Had lunch in the outside pavilion and it was just perfect. Such great food, had to purchase lots of their mixes to bring home and try. Hope their half as good.

We went here for breakfast, and the wait was just long enough for us to look at the grounds outside. They were wonderful! We had a good breakfast by the restaurant fireplace. The best part, you can peruse the home while waiting on your breakfast to be made. A nice 1 1/2 hours to spend.

I ordered off the lunch menu - that was a mistake.. I ordered the open faced London sandwich or something and it wasn't that great. My friend ordered the quiche off the breakfast menu and it was amazing.

We stopped here on a Sunday morning, but the wait was 1 ½ hours. Instead of waiting, we returned on Monday morning when we were able to immediately get a table. They did not have a children's menu, so we had to figure out what to get for our 2 year old granddaughter. I wanted a basic egg and meat... More

What a wonderful place for breakfast! I cannot believe the flaky mile high biscuits! I have never had better biscuits, and cannot get my own to match up! Breakfast with a side of the area history. Doesn't get much better than that.

This is a lovely place for breakfast with eating areas in various rooms in the house. I had a delicious large pecan sticky roll. There are many fine selections for breakfast. Be sure to go upstairs to visit the German family's museum and take a walk around the beautiful grounds along the river.

Lunch was very good. We were hoping to buy pastry but the had a very limited selection. Go early for a good selection. Nice stop on the trolley tour.

We went for breakfast after hotel recommended it to us. Beautiful long walk along the river to get there and we walked by the historic mansions on the way home. Good food and service all around. The size of the biscuit was huge and very tasty.

This was a popular place, even with tons of construction and the main access blocked it was still packed and I could see why when we got in and got our food. It was a nice atmosphere, and the food was amazing. Before we were seated I went up to the gift shop and museum to look around. It was... More

... Management made a questionable decision that made the experience less enjoyable. More on that later. PROS: Great menu, reasonably priced, beautiful surroundings in downtown San Antonio on the Riverwalk, very pleasant atmosphere on a cool, overcast, breezy day following a morning of rain. We sat outdoors under a tent with side walls that very effectively blocked the wind and... More
