I recently discovered this cute little corner cafe on my most recent visit to Fredericksburg. The only thing I have eaten on the menu were the breakfast tacos with a side of potatoes. The food was great and hit the spot.

We had an amazing breakfast. My son said the pancakes were the best he's ever had - very light and fluffy. We loved sitting outside and the service was great.

Food was ok. Somewhat disappointed that they wouldn't make a breakfast taco without cheese as they claimed the kitchen was too busy to do custom orders. Not sure I have ever been told that before. So while I really wanted bacon and eggs breakfast tacos, I ended up getting the french toast instead which was ok. They only have one... More

We stopped in for breakfast and it was great. Lots of food on the plate. It is a bit on the pricey side, but well worth it. Most of the seating is outdoors, and is limited, so be prepared for a wait. Although we walked up just in time to find an empty table. Will definitely go again when in... More

I couldn't find the Pecan Bakery (where is it?) and this was the only place I saw open as I cruised Main early Saturday morning. I do not like many traditional breakfast foods, including eggs, but ordered a taco minus eggs, plus avocado, and it was filling - fresh - hit the spot. Pecan coffee also tasted really good. I...

Not the classiest spot in Fredericksburg, but they make outstanding tacos of all kinds. The fish tacos at lunch are very good. They also make a really good tortilla soup. The service is hit and miss. You are better off going when they aren't crowded.

If I were reviewing this place solely based on food, it would have an excellent rating. Their breakfast tacos are amazing and the Huevos Rancheros my wife had were even better. However, they basically forgot about our order and we sat there for 45 minutes without anyone so much as walking by. I finally had to flag down our waiter... More

Well, first off- self serve coffee. Serving myself coffee is not what I want to do first thing in the morning, that's why I'm OUT eating. Second, the service really brings the place down. It's way disorganized and I felt rushed and over looked. However, you do get a fair amount of food. The food is ok, but my French... More

Mahaley's expanded recently and have done a great job. It is a great place for fresh salads and sandwiches as well as delicious soups. The place is nicely, but sparsely decorated with attentive service.
