Great food! Waited an hour and a half to sit and worth the wait. Beautiful area.

The place is super nice and very cute and cozy we had the chicken and waffles


This should be a must stop on your visit to SA! They do not take reservations so be prepared for up to an hour wait.. I know….. I said no food is worth an hour….. but if you want a nice southern breakfast or lunch, in a great Texas environment, go and prepare to be pleased!

We love coming here when we are in town. We prefer the indoor dining area. It's cozy and has beautiful decor and architecture. The food is excellent, especially the biscuits and the chicken enchiladas. Their fun gift shop is closed right now. However you can order your favorite items right from your table. It's a must-go place for a home-style dining experience.

Breakfast at the Guenther House - who claim to have “the best breakfast in town” Well, I’ll be the judge of that.Arriving at 10:20 am we were put on a waiting list and told it would be an hour and 10 minutes so walked the river walk. We received a text at one hour our table was ready and we were seated inside in an air conditioned dining room which was welcomed after walking in 85°/69% humidity weather.We were started off with waters followed shortly by coffees. I had the hazelnut flavored, which was delicious and smelled amazing.I had the 1851 Breakfast Platter - biscuits and gravy, two eggs (over medium), applewood smoked bacon and pork country sausage.My wife had Sweet Cream Waffle, bacon and a side of blackberry preserves.I was a little disappointed that There was only one piece of bacon and a small sausage patty, as I had said to my wife “I wish they had a platter of bacon and sausage” when deciding what to order. Both were somewhat bland, not supporting the restaurants claim. Eggs were cooked to order, but appeared to have waited a few minutes for the rest of the platter to be completed. Not bad, just not hot off the griddle. Then I got into the biscuits and gravy! The seasoning in the biscuits combined perfectly with those in the gravy. I was full by the time a put the last bit of biscuit in my mouth.Final price for two of us was just north of $30.00, a great price for a sit down breakfast in a historic building with a great atmosphere.Best breakfast in town? How could you even know that? But, decent food, plenty of it, and at a reasonable price.

My meal was delicious and it was a beautiful day to sit outside and enjoy myself.


we enjoyed the gentler house....and were lucky enough to be seated inside after a quick 35 minute wait....we enjoyed a cup of coffee & cinnamon roll while we waited....then seated inside we enjoyed biscuits and gravy, lovely service, and beautiful surroundings.....I see why this restaurant has a wait....and may I say, worth the wait!!!! :). so glad our bus tour driver/Kat recommended this restaurant....we enjoyed every minute & every BITE!!! beautiful staff & great, fresh, yummy food!!! :) :)

I was skeptical because the wait was over 1hr and 25 minutes for breakfast/lunch. Made my nerves irk thoughhhh I did enjoy every bite of my San Antonio quiche. Upon entry you could smell the hazelnut coffee. My boss got tacos and lord they were packed with eggs, bacon and potatoes. I dare to be bold next time and try the champagne enchiladas


Absolutely delicious! Chicken salad is so good. Fresh fruit on the side was tasty. My husband got the breakfast platter with a homemade biscuit. It was HUGE and so good. The cinnamon roll can probably feed four. If we are ever back in San Antonio, we would return.


Nice place. Pancakes best opcion.

Easily accessible from the River Walk. Beautiful indoor and outdoor dining ambiance. Reasonably priced. Delicious food—-strawberry waffles with sweet cream, biscuit and gravy, bacon, peach preserves, and Founders Coffee were our favorites. Highly recommend.

This place is worth the wait. One of the best brunches I've ever had - the food was phenomenal. The house coffee is amazing, and I don't think I've ever had a better biscuit (and that's saying a lot when you live in the south).

Great portions, seasoned well, food what hot and presentation was great Waitress was nice and attentive. I had the 1851 breakfast and couldn't finish it. Yummy food and the price was reasonable 54 dollars fed three people well. Plan ahead as it was very busy and we waited over 2 hrs to sit outside. Wasn't given a choice and it was a warm day. Overall the experience was great.

Beautiful house and delicious food. My husband & I we're meeting an old friend of mine from high school. She & her family lives here in San Antonio. We sat inside , it was a little too hot for me to sit outside. The inside is pretty & cozy. All their food made with their own ingredients, from Pioneer mills. I had the Strawberry cream waffle. No lie, in my opinion, it's the best waffle I've ever tasted!!! Just so good! As of this review they only open Wed - Sun 8-2. If you are in SA, you have to go to this place to have breakfast or lunch.
