Great local coffee shop!

Java ranch is a place we frequent for coffee in the early mornings when in Fredericksburg. We love to walk the shopping district before the crowds get out. It's popular for the locals. The coffeeis very good (try the Texas Pecan) and their muffins are awesome. They have a fairly large menu of... read more

Java ranch is always packed and that is a testament to their delicious product. My bed-and-breakfast was at the other end of Main Street and every morning I walked three blocks just for their iced coffee.

We went both mornings because our rental service offered a voucher here (and 3 other places). We ordered: The breakfast taco: mine wasn't incredibly hot and the tortilla was never warmed so the cheese didn't end up ever melting. My husband enjoyed his and ordered another the next day. The portion size was big though and it was filling. The... More

Always great and fast service! Consistent food and coffees. I always order the Latte. They already know what I want when I order and most times, I don't even have to wait for it, they start making my Latte while I am in line! Friendly staff and neat atmosphere!

Quality coffee, not some cheap stuff they pawn off to tourists because they can. We visited in August so we had iced mocha and lattes and they were wonderful. The staff is helpful and efficient. The usually coffee shops WiFi hogs hanging around so seating is in short supply.

When I arrived I waited 5 minutes while the girls at the counter finished talking about some girl they hated. I finally asked if I could order, after getting rolled eyes they took my order. I asked for a ice mocha and peach pie. The peach pie was over 5.00 a slice and tasted like it was made with frozen... More

Wow! We ♡ this place! The coffee is GREAT and food is excellent. We went for breakfast during both days of our stay. The kolaches are fabulous and so are the fresh baked cookies. On our day 2 visit, we ordered breakfast tacos. They are HUGE! We ordered 3, but 2 would have been perfect. Taste was amazing! This will... More

Stopped in for a couple of iced lattes. Drinks were about what I expected . The employees were way more interested in talking to a friend that came in than working. Underwhelming.

We had breakfast here. The service was friendly. I had a breakfast taco which was very large. The coffee was hot and there were several varieties to choose from.

I'm a bit of a coffee snob, and I always ask "What coffee is the freshest?" when there are several to choose from. The two times I came here on my solo retreat, the house blend was the freshest. Both times, it was very good. With this, one enjoys the atmosphere of this little shop. A lot of wood showing,... More
