One should visit the Guenther house to rest and eat, but be aware while doing so that there isn't much to see in the Guenther house itself. The Villa Finale and Steves Homestead offer more to see as far as antique furnishings and mansion tours are concerned. At the Guenther house one can see the gift shop, restaurant, bathroom and...

Quaint decor and delicious breakfast. Wish I had more time to browse the gift shop. A great place to take out-of-towners for brunch.

there is no better stop in the early morning than biscuits or sticky rolls at the Guenthner House. Stroll the historic King William district, and enjoy the tranquility of the new King William River Walk extension - and reward yourself with the best breakfast in town. We stop in San Antonio every year - and no visit is complete without... More

We stopped by here just to see if it held up to the memories and you know what it did. Good service warm food and tons of history.

This is another of the places I keep going back to. I've had many lunches here, enjoyed their museum and shopped in their shop. This was not my best visit, but I'm sure it won't be my last. The gift shop was charming as usual, but part of the museum was closed for an event. The portion that was open... More

Our first visit to San Antonio, and this place was wonderful. Absolutely great breakfast. We even tried to eat here again on Saturday before going to the airport, but the wait was over an hour long. My wife enjoyed the gift shop and bought several items. Highly recommend!

Love, love, love this place. Be ready for an extra long wait to be seated unless you get there super early before they open and wait at the gates. The biscuits & gravy, sweet cream waffles and the breakfast tacos are wonderful and highly recommended. My husband and I got all 3 and shared it.

The food was lovely and the service was even better. I thoroughly enjoyed my time there. Right on the riverwalk what more could you ask for. The gift shop was really cute as well and the gingerbread house that they have on display during the christmas time.

I love the Guenther House for sentimental reasons. It's historic, Pioneer flour (hello!), the sweet gift shop, and the quiche. Mostly, I love it , because my mother-in-law hosted a Mother's Day luncheon for every mother she knew. She decorated tables with small potted roses, which are now growing in our front yard. We ate delicious chicken salad sandwiches and... More
