We had breakfast here, and the service was terrible. We waited forever to order and then for our food, and when it came, mine was cold. I sent it back, and it was microwaved instead of re-made. Works for somethings, but not so much for fried eggs.

Second time I've been here for Breakfast. First of all nobody tells you it's self serve for coffee or asks if you want food to go or dine in. There are only paper cups and one of the coffee thermos was labeled "Blonde"-turned out to be like a hazelnut flavor-hate flavored coffee. We were meeting another couple so were told... More

I thought the "famous" cinnamon rolls were good......but there is a difference between good and great. That said, the trash taco and the Juevos Rancheros were really good. It is too expensive for what you get but the quality of the food is good.

Daily Specials are excellent. The roast beef on Mondays is a mouth watering treat. Dine inside or outside. Laid back and relaxed atmosphere is calming as well as refreshing. Simple food at a good price.

Excellent spot for breakfast! Quick and easy. Great service. Probably the best cinnamon roll we have ever eaten. Breakfast tacos very good, too.

We hit up Mahaley's Café for lunch - they have indoor/outdoor seating and we always try to snag a patio table when the weather is nice out. Try the BLT with "A" - avocado next time- the sandwich is so yummy and comes with fries or chips. If you are looking for a light snack for lunch, you can easily... More

We eat at Mahaleys everytime we are in Fredericksburg. Their breakfast tacos are the best I've ever had. All food is fresh, not powdered or frozen. I always regret not getting a couple of them to take home with me. May have to make a special trip just to get one. And we live 6 hours away :-)...... YES, they... More

I went there for breakfast on Sunday. A woman who appeared to be the owner or manager seemed a little put off that my friends and I asked for menus. I had 2 breakfast tacos, a fruit cup, a cherry turnover [for later in the day] and a cup of coffee all for the grand total of $17! Kind of... More

My friend and I ate breakfast here the first morning we were in Fredericksburg. The service was excellent and the food was very good. My Omelet was excellent. The only thing I didn’t care for were the potatoes. They seemed to be right out of a bag. We ate outside and it quiet and relaxing, even though nearly every table... More
