I live in Kentucky, but have travelled to San Antonio a few times. I ALWAYS make time for breakfast at least once at The Guenther House. The Belgian-style waffles are scrumptious, no matter how you top them. The restaurant is housed in the home of the founder of one of the original flour mills in SA, and it is a... More

Enjoyed outdoor dining with patio heaters. Great pancakes and biscuits with sausage gravy. Nice small gift shop in this museum style setting. Beautiful old home now a restaurant and gift shop.

When we have guests in town, we always take them to breakfast at the Guenther House. Their strawberry waffles are great as is their blueberry muffins.

This place was recommended by the hotel and not to go on Sunday due to the long wait. The food did not disappoint. The servings are very large and tasty, but service is friendly and slow.

I may have expected too much because of what I heard about this place. The historic home which was turned into a restaurant is beautiful. The grounds are also beautiful. We truly enjoyed walking around reading the home's history and enjoying the older architecture. The food was a bit disappointing. We waited almost 2 hours for a table for 4.... More

Plan ahead as the waits and lines are long but very good food and service. The house coffee is very good. Going back tomorrow to try different items.

We wanted an early start so planned on a 7am breakfast then an 8am tour. The staff was friendly when spoken to but only about 50% of them would give more than a super short answer. For example what kind of pastries and the price. Remember we are seated getting ready to order breakfast. I don't know you can go... More

If your are in downtown San Antonio this is the place for breakfast. If you aren't in downtown San Antonio it is worth the drive. I had the breakfast tacos. My wife had the quiche of the day. Both were outstanding and the portions were large enough to satisfy. I also recommend the biscuits with one of their jellies or... More
