We went to Guenther House for breakfast and man was it great! We had the pancakes and the waffles and both lived up to our expectations. The other food we saw looked really good too! The grounds were beautiful and helped pass the wait to get seated.

We woke up late ambled our way to the historic house, museum and restaurant. We were there for breakfast and quickly learned that so was the rest of San Antonio. While we waited for a hour and a half to be seated, we looked at the Guenther family museum and enjoyed a warm October day in the garden.
Fare is limited and the portions generous. The biscuits are huge and more resemble mini loafs of bread. She said the gravy was just “ok” and needed more seasoning. I had the club sandwich with fruit on the side. I could only eat half the meal.
I advise that you arrive either early or late for Sunday breakfast. Ten thirty is too late and you will have a long wait. At one pm your wait will be shorter

If you are looking for a hearty breakfast try the Guenther House. Great atmosphere, wonderful gift shop and fantastic waffles, biscuits and gravy and cinnamon rolls. Wander upstairs and see a few of the original rooms. You can buy their waffle, pancake and gingerbread mixes to go in the gift shop.

The museum is literally a foyer and room of a house displaying some furniture and dishes. The attached store had some interesting baking items. It also has a restaurant in the basement and outside, smelled good but limited seating. Unless you are eating at the restaurant this is only a 15 minute stop.

This is basically a tourist location with busloads of people lining up to eat (no reservations). Menu pretty limited. We ended up not eating but wanted to see the museum which is free. But it is a stretch to call it a museum, hardly anything to see. Look at it from the outside but if you are really interested in the history of the area there are a couple of house museums in the King William District a couple of blocks away that are far superior for representing that age. And the other houses on King William street are very interesting to walk by.

We went here to see the lovely house ( one of the first in San Antonio) with history of the German settlers. What we found was an interesting museum with history of old San Antonio. We found fantastic views of the San Antonio River. AN D we found downstairs an outstanding restaurant.

We went there for lunch on our last day because we won a gift card only wish we could have went there sooner. Our food was excellent, they brought us homemade rolls that were so good. We had club sandwiches and dessert everything was great. We bought cinnamon rolls and cookies to take with us. The only downfall was they told us we could walk from the hotel (they didn't tell us it was almost a 2 mile walk but that has nothing to do with the food and service of the Guenther House). Wish we could have had breakfast there.

This is one of my favorite places in San Antonio! You have a chance to see a piece of history along with a beautifully preserved historical house with breathtaking views of the San Antonio River from the upstairs balcony. You'll feel like you are walking back in time, especislly with the General Store with relics of the past. Plus there is a sumptuous restaurant downstairs with an excellent variety of foods - omeletts, salads, sandwiches, pancakes and lots more to delight any palatte. Don't miss this one on your visit to downtoen SA.

Have been here many times but a first for other family members. Always have to have at least one meal at the restaurant when in town. Family was impressed with the museum and I also enjoyed seeing it again. One of my favorite places in San Antonio!

I am 49 years old and have had some really good homemade breakfast. This place is now in the top 3 place to have breakfast. I live 2.5 hrs from here and have driven several times now to eat here.
