We happened to see the Guenther House while we were exploring the nearby King William Historic District and decided it looked worth a try. Pancakes were excellent, with real maple syrup, and the bacon was so good that my husband had to get an order of his own because I wouldn't share mine. The dining room is a nice, sunny... More

We stopped here as part of the hop on/off tour - we had time to visit the house while waiting to be seated for lunch. There is both indoor and outdoor seating. They serve breakfast all day, but they do close at 3:00 pm - The area is very pretty and they are reclaiming the nearby area for the arts.... More

We returned for lunch another day and i ordered the champaign enchilada which were just amazing. The restaurant is small (can eat inside or... More

I love this place but unfortunately this past weekend ended not so good. We were told 30-35 minutes inside (since we had the baby with us) so we opted for first available. After a 37 minute wait we had to leave which spoiled our Brunch plans.

We arrived at 1045 and had an hour and a half wait. We walked around the property, looked at the gift shop, and picked out our pastries early. We were told the pastries go fast. The pumpkin bread was so moist it melted in your mouth. Our breakfast was good and reasonably priced.

My wife and I were going for a walk on the Riverwalk and found this quaint restaurant. The baked goods were incredible, the service was awesome, and the gift shop was very interesting. It was a way from the regular hustle and bustle of the Riverwalk and made a delightful walk perfect. Highly recommend!

My husband took me here for an early anniversary breakfast. We shared a breakfast because it was HUGE. We had the pioneer breakfast, a side order of 1 egg, fruit plate and sweet cream waffle. All of it was very good. The waffle was melt in your mouth amazing! Biscuits were HUGE and fluffy. Preserves are homemade with a variety... More

This is a small restaurant... the food is satisfactory. Free admission to the Gunther gays. Nice Sunday activity! The pastries are tasty as well
