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

Situated by the San Antonio river it's a 5-star location. Brunch under the outside covered patio, followed by an informal tour of the house set the stage for the morning's adventure. A walk along the river and through the adjacent historic district topped off the visit. The service, food and pricing was satisfactory, but reduced our overall rating. Give it... More

This is a nice historical place with a restaurant and gift shop. The bathrooms were very clean here! They do have a pastry case and everything in it looked yummy, but we didn't sample anything. Unfortunately, breakfast was just ok. I ordered the special quiche that wasn't on the menu and it was WAY overcooked. Hubby got a biscuit with... More

Our Trolley operator recommended this place for breakfast. My husband and I walked one Mike from our Riverwalk hotel. The breakfast food was great. I had a waffle and my husband had the special breakfast. The price was good too. It was about $25 for the two of us. The adjoining museum and gift shop were fun too.

We visited here on the strong recommendation of friends. It is a beautiful location; seating inside or out (we sat outside), and the service is good. But we were both disappointed with our meals. My sister ordered a taco salad, which she said was just average. I ordered some kind of enchiladas with a champagne sauce that was so terribly... More

Yes, it gets crowded. Yes, you will have to wait for a table. But, you will enjoy your meal and the beautiful setting. Try to go early to beat the crowds. Make sure you take time to stroll the King William neighborhood after you eat. If you want the traditional breakfast foods, be sure to order the pancake of the... More
