You can walk to this location from the downtown river walk area. It takes about 20 minutes, so wear your walking shoes. This area of the river walk is more green space and private homes. Once there we discovered the restaurant is actually the original family home of the Pioneer Flour Mill founders. Great venue, the first floor, slightly sunken... More

My dish was described with avocado but didn't have avocado. We were hungry so we just ate and left. Before being seated there were... More

Hard to tell which door to go in but we wound our way around and found the cafe. The sandwiches are large, order 1/2 unless you're starving. Good ginger peach tea. The waitstaff seemed a little distracted but it was right before closing time. Loved the house, wish I see all of it.

Our breakfast was great. I had the strawberry waffle and could not finish it. The whip cream is very light, the strawberries were sweet and the waffle was cooked perfect. My husband had the biscuits with gravy and they were huge! He could not eat all of his breakfast either. The applewood bacon was great. We went on a Saturday... More

This was the first place we visit, Is a lovely place in a very traditional area, near of downtown, very relaxed, The food was delicious, I tested the most delicious cinnamon roll of my life, you have to try it if you go. The environment makes you feel like you are in another era, and have a very unique souvenirs.

We opted to wait about an hour and half here for brunch on Sunday before Labor Day. I'm not sure if that is a normal wait time, or made worse by the holiday. It was worth the wait, but not sure I would wait that long again after doing it once. They have an interesting concept where you can reserve... More

And we found them. Sitting outside in the cool of a San Antonio day enjoying the morning. As the waffles, eggs and fried potatoes arrived. They went above and beyond as even a smiley face was placed on chocolate chip pancakes for the little one. And in return they received empty plates... For a job well done!
