Don't be in a Rush

This neighborhood cafe prides themselves on good food and large portions but it is much more than that. We arrived in town just in time for lunch so my GF and I decided on the burger. I had a typical cheese burger that was packed with fresh onion, lettuce and tomato ( which I usually pull off and... read more

Just happened on it as we were looking for a breakfast place. They have an enclosed patio and it is not real obvious how to get in. We finally figured it out and were seated. Our server was great. Had fun watching others look for the door. Unexpected entertainment.

Great tacos. Generous servings. Get there early before the run out of cherry turnovers. Also, grab an iced lemon cookie to go.

Huge, flavorful breakfast tacos of bacon and chorizo for me, and 6 big pieces of French toast, with a side of crispy bacon we split, left us full and satisfied. Coffee IS self serve, and outside dining is enclosed in plastic with heaters, with service slammed but friendly. Right across the street from the WW II Pacific museum with its... More

The breakfast burritos are large, but I'm kinda picky when it comes to breakfast burritos/tacos. #1, the bacon is crunched up into bits, and I like mine whole so there's more flavor. #2, the eggs are scrambled rare, and I like mine well done. #3, the bacon and egg burritto is served with potato, and if you want them to...

We went for Sunday Breakfast. The parking situation was bad. The dining area is like a carport covered in clear plastic. It was so bright my daughter had to use sun glasses and I about had a sunstroke from the sun bearing down on my neck and back. We waited forever for someone to ask us for just our drink... More

The breakfast burritos are good and made with what tasted and looked like homemade tortillas. I got the bacon, egg, potato burrito one morning and the trash burrito another morning. I liked the bacon, egg and potato burrito better. There were no open tables and it looked like a long wait so I just got it to go with a... More

One of the few places open for breakfast in Fredericksburg on Sunday mornings. The breakfast Tacos were not that great. However, the pastries were wonderful. Long wait for so-so breakfast tacos. Next time we will get the pastries to go and skip the crowds.

The location on Main Street is perfect, our waiter was friendly enough, but the breakfast tacos left a lot to be desired. The tacos were very bland. The salsa however was amazing!
