We truly enjoyed the visit to the Guenther House. The grounds were set up so beautiful and the inside was just as charming. We didn't dine there so I can't give a review on the food but from a historical point, the place was amazing. We did purchase several gravy mixes from the gift shop and they were very good,... More

Love it for its history and love it for its very homely food. One of my fav brunch places in San Antonio. It is very busy over weekends. So go early. They have a beautiful lawn where you can wait. You can also tour the house while waiting. Staff is friendly, kid friendly. I love their selection. Highly recommend!

A view into a different era and the lives of ordinary people who worked hard and achieved much success. I lovely old home, artifacts, and a very good luncheon menu if you choose to eat there (recommend it...the most delicious biscuits and breads!). A small store on the 2nd floor with mixes from the flour mill Mr Gunther owned and... More

I love the Guenther house. I go there anytime I can break away from home chores on the weekend for a delicious breakfast, pastries to take home, their (to die for coffee) , and to browse the house for a history lesson and their gift shop to stock up on future unique birthday/Christmas gifts. I have yet to make it... More

Took out-of-town guests for brunch, and everything was perfect. Gracious staff, great food, reasonable price. While waiting for our table, we had fun touring the house and wandering through the gift shop.

We stumbled upon the Guenther House during our first visit to San Antonio several years ago. We absolutely loved it. We have been back two more times, the most recently last weekend with the grandkids. We got there shortly before noon and didn't get seated until after one o'clock. That was an extremely long wait for three hungry grandkids. (We... More

Ok, I just went to the bakery and got some baked goods but I really liked them. This is one of those places where if you want to eat there you need to make reservations. The house is open to walk through while you wait and worth your time, IMHO. The people we dealt with in the bakery were friendly... More

It appears to be a very nice and good place to eat or cater an event. As a place to visit as a museum, it was not high on my list of favorites. It is well kept and has an extensive shop to purchase all things food related; from soup to nuts and all things utensils.

Very interesting area the Guenther house is in. The small family history room before the gift shop shows their history of being the flour mill industrialists. The gift shop had excellent brewed free coffee and quality souvenirs. The flour made great pancakes at home. Worth seeing. They have a restaurant but alas, family member was dieting and in no mood...
