Great place for breakfast went there twice, once by way of the river walk and then thru the King William historical area.

This is a nice small restaurant serving breakfast and lunch. While there is some seating inside, most people opt to sit on the covered outdoor patio. Fans keep it comfortable in the morning and early afternoon. A tasty variety of waffles and breakfast tacos are...More

I loved the atmosphere. Our waitress was excellent, and the food was perfect. We split the Chicken Salad Sandwich and soup. The place is know for it's brunch, but we wanted a late lunch. It was just what we waned... good food and good conversation.

Had breakfast at the Guenther House. Although they have a very small menu, their breakfast is simple, yet delicious. They serve a homemade cinnamon roll that is huge and delicious. Our waiter, Martin, was friendly and courteous. History states that Mr. Guenther was the owner...More

Lovely breakfast. Charming dining room. Includes free self-guided tour of the house. The biscuits were DELICIOUS and they have a vegetarian gravy option. Pancakes were incredible (I tasted my husband's). Well worth the detour from RiverWalk.

I'm sorry, I'm really not sure. Neither of us are on a gluten free and I didn't really pay attention.

There is a free parking lot. Signage is small for the lot and you can't really see the house from the lot. (The lot is in back of the mill warehouse). Look at satellite view on Google maps and it is very clear. Beautiful... More

I don't know for sure. I would guess they don't inside as the seating is rather confined. My December 2014 trip is the first time I've eaten outside, and I didn't see any dogs, but that doesn't mean they don't allow dogs. If... More
