Wonderful breakfast in a historic home. The food is wonderful. Get there early or you could wait awhile. Saturday is better then Sunday. The house is really cool as well but the main event is the food. Just a good experience. We stuck around after breakfast and walked around the grounds. Bought some stuff in the gift shop and procured some pastries for later.
Just a nice, nice thing to do. We followed up walking back to our hotel along the river.

Awesome place. Expect a waiting time. There is so much to do while you wait. Explore the house, the grounds, and if time walk through the neighborhood nearby. Lots of cool houses to look at. The store is pretty neat too. The food is great. Each time I've been the weather is perfect for eating outside. Would recommend.

Restored home built by founder of the Pioneer Flour Mills that is now a museum, restaurant, and gift shop located near the San Antonio River in historical downtown. Outside seating available, weather permitting, where you can be joined by ducks and birds that are, obviously, used to interacting with visitors. We only had a light lunch which was wonderful, and the food that we saw others enjoying looked very tempting as well.

Yes, the house is beautiful, the grounds are serene. But the food is basically a showcase of Pioneer brand baking products.
We arrived one weekday morning right after opening time to find the place pretty empty and the staff in the middle of preparing for breakfast service. The dining area is a semi-basement and the noise of the staff's banging of pots and dishes made for a painfully loud dining experience. The Guenther breakfast did have two enormous biscuits, but they were accompanied by a small bowl of (dry mix, not homemade) sausage gravy, a thimblefull of butter and about 2 tbs. of nearly frozen jam. Not enough to moisten the pretty dry biscuits.
Like I said, the venue is beautiful, but the food is just so-so.
