Sat outside and made good use of the warm blankets. The pancakes were great as was the biscuits and gravy. Best part may have been the yummy pecan roll. Be sure to go inside and check out the pastry case.

We had lunch as it was one of our stops while on the trolley. The house itself is very historic and was nice to go through....at least what parts we could. We did get there at the end of their lunch time so didn't have the best of choices. The service was very good but food was just o.k.

Located in the original home of the Guenther family which founded Pioneer Flour Company, breakfast here is a must for anyone visiting San Antonio. They offer both indoor and outdoor dining and you can tour the historic home and lovely grounds along the San Antonio River.

Wonderful breakfast and lunch in charming converted flour mill on national historic registry. Had excellent hearty breakfast with quality ingredients. Don't know if everything is locally sourced but the very tasty breads, biscuits, pancakes and waffles are based on their own ground flours. All the fruit was perfectly ripe and when I asked about it, was told they only serve... More

This seems to be an unknown place, more for locals. The King William German neighborhood of San Antonio we drove through on a bus tour and was a stop. We decided to go back for breakfast the next day. Walking up is like stepping to early 1900's Victorian living. The charm and grand homes and buildings for businesses is amazing.... More

We found this little gem searching online. It was so much better than we imagined! The restaurant is huge and accommodating. Very interesting to look around the beautiful grounds browsing in the gift shop while you wait for a table. The food was terrific and the service was good. I would highly recommend this little gem!

It's near the end of the Riverwalk, but was just lovely.. there are beautiful houses to see in the neighborhood (King William area) and the house itself is a show piece!! Our breakfast was hot and extremely good... The baked goods are epic.... I highly recommend this restaurant. A highlight of our trip to San Antonio! And a pleasant break... More

The food was excellent even though the menu was fairly small. The setting was beautiful and it was interesting to wander around the house after the meal.

I went to this restaurant with one of my daughters and her husband. We decided to sit outside inside the tent although it was a chilly, if sunny, fall morning. My daughter covered her shoulders with one of the beautiful blankets provided, (she looked so comfy!) but I felt the tent did a good job keeping us sheltered. The food... More
