The breakfast was amazing! The 3 pound cinnamon roll was so flavorful! The waffles and the pancakes were made from the freshly milled flour made onsite. So delicious! The old home has amazing period furniture, and the gift shop has unique items.

We went to the Guenther House for breakfast because we had heard that it was an interesting and historic place to dine. The line to get in was very long and standing in the suffocating heat was painful. When we finally did get in, (there...More

Interesting house and history. Excellent lunch served indoors or on a lovely patio. Friendly, efficient staff. Prices seemed in line with similar fare in local cafes, not elevated because of the historical venue.

Little home museum of owners and starters of this restaurant and the whole business. Nice conditions, clean, cozy and informative. Nice start (or finish) with your meal!

First, the atmosphere here is amazing. I was a little confused about how to get in to the restaurant. The back door is where the entrance is to it. The biscuits & gravy (and I'm an expert) was 4/5. The gravy wasn't as hot as...More

Small museum located in the home of Pioneer Flour founders. Interesting and loaded with history and information. The grounds are lovely. Parking is available. The restaurant on site is wonderful. Small gift shop offers many flour related items and interesting gifts.
