Sunday Breakfast at the Guenther House on the River, then walk or bike PRN

Note: Here's a link to their breakfast menu:

Guenther House is located about a mile south of downtown between Guenther and South Alamo. It's a really cool old building which served as the founding family's house in the early part of the firm's history as millers (going back to the 1850's or so).

I hesitate to make this so early in the morning, but the place really fills up fast on the weekends, so I am trying to avoid a long wait time. They have indoor and outdoor seating, so depending on the weather we can make up our mind on that when we arrive. Also, this is not a place for a massive group, so I have limited the head count. Ergo, if you have RSVP'd Yes but can't make it, please change your RSVP to No as early as possible so someone on the waiting list can get a chance to go.

They also have an interesting gift shop on the second floor, and there is quite a bit of history on display throughout. If anyone is in a mood to stroll around the river or into the King William district, this is very close by. Also, there is a bcycle (bike share) kiosk right across Alamo Street at Blue Star, so for 10 bucks you can rent a bike for all day.

Note: the Guenther House parking lot is on South Alamo, which is all torn up, so you can't come down Alamo from the north as it is closed at the bridge over the river. So, you have to come up South Alamo to the Guenther parking lot. They also have parking on the north side of the facility, on East Guenther Street between Main and Alamo, which normally is not available (but is being made available now because of the difficulty of  Alamo Street access).

    Wish I could have been there! John, I was recently introduced to LuLu's downtown on Main - perhaps another breakfast meet up idea?

      Oh yes, very open on Weekends. We went after a play on Sunday ~6P and it was busy busy. They offer a 3 pound cinnamon bun so if we have a good sized group we could split it - yummm!

    Since this will be the first meeting I have been able to attend...is there a certain area in which the group meets? How may I identify the group? Thanks

      Shouldn't be a problem. The greeters will know where we are. There are only a couple of rooms inside and the covered patio area outside.

    I love this place. We do have to get there early. it's a small place and if the weather is grand, we can sit out in the courtyard. I can't wait for food!!!!

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
