Weekday Brunching

Last week, my sister and I went to one of my absolute favorite restaurants in San Antonio, the Guenther House.  It's located in the old German part of town, and was converted from the home of a flour mill owner to a restaurant.  They're open for breakfast and lunch, and the wait can be insanely long on the weekends, so we went for a weekday brunch.

The old house holds a museum of sorts and a gift shop in addition to the restaurant, so we poked around while we waited for our table, which was in the gorgeous Arts & Crafts addition to the house. 

The details are gorgeous (I love the chinoiserie light fixtures and the corn detailing on the fireplace), and we had fun catching up while we waited for our food. 

I got the biscuits and gravy (words do not even describe how good these biscuits are), while my sister got the banana waffle.  

We had a long, leisurely meal, and when we were done, we walked around the neighborhood to see some of the gorgeous historic homes, although that part of the day admittedly did not last long because it was so hot.  

We ended up back at the restaurants and had a fun little photo shoot on the gorgeous grounds there before we retreated to the blasting air conditioning of the car.  It was a fun day, though, and if you ever find yourself in San Antonio, I could not recommend the Guenther House enough.
