Located in the historic King William District of town, adjacent to the Pioneer Flour Mill facility, the Guenther House has some of the best American breakfast in town. Pancakes, Waffles, biscuits, pastries and even their sausage gravy are all made from scratch using the Pioneer Flour products. It's a first come, first serve locale, so be sure and plan on... More

We love coming here for breakfast. Beautiful Victorian house by the extended Riverwalk in the historic King William district. Best sausage gravy and biscuits in San Antonio. Tour the house after eating and a neat little gift shop is a floor above.

We ate breakfast here on Sunday, couldn't get in on Saturday. Was way too busy! Delicious food, with large enough portions. Pioneer brand food.

We got there at 7:30 and had a choice of sitting, Outside or Inside. We sat outside in the covered patio,with misters going. By 8:30 there was a wait list. They don't take reservation. Breakfast was reasonably priced. Wait staff was attentive. Afterwards we toured the Guenther house. Gift shop upstairs full of lovely things to buy.

Historic German mansion of the man that founded the Pioneer Flour Mill (the Guenther family). Everything made in the area at the time was corn flour. Mr. Guenther introduced wheat flour. Very nice outdoor brunch and indoor restaurant on ground floor, second floor museum and a gift shop offering their Pioneer Flour Mill pancake mixes, et all, to take home... More

Worth a quick look if you are inclined to visit the King William District. Amazing example of period architecture. Also an interesting art district. We used the hop on/off city bus to visit. It was hot so take water.

Visited this place for a small wedding held on the grounds and was pleasantly surprised. Very intimate older feel that made it ideal for a small wedding setting. Probably not an attraction I would gravitate to with 3 small children, but if you want a peaceful place to reflect on history, this is a good fit.
