Good coffee

This restaurant is good for a quick bite for breakfast and coffee. There's no Starbucks in Fredericksburg so this is the next best thing! It's located downtown on Main Street.

We got the pecan pia at this cozy little downtown cafe. It looks like a family place and really is! The service was nice and the place is full of different artefacts from the 50s - e.g. a "Zoltar Speaks" "fortune" teller machine. For better coffee, go to the coffee shop at Austin Street

It is expensive but what coffee place isn't? Hubby and I split a scone, an apple turnover, and a cinnamon roll. They were delicious! The pecan roast coffee was really good too. I'd go again.

Good coffee and open early and late which is better then other coffee shops in town. The pastries are ok but not the best in town. The staff is great and you gotta love the wall mural.

Nice place. Good coffee and looked to be good food. Very popular as the rain started to come dow. Set up like an old saloon, sort of.

The missus and I go here on a regular basis when in town...dead center on main..always hot coffee of several styles and strength..always great place to dunk into out of the ever present texas rain and cold...the only somewhat less positive thing I can say is that they tend to run low on pastries and tacos before I get there...

We went here the first morning of our three day stay in Fredericksburg and decided that we probably would not find anything better... so had breakfast here every morning! Six blends of excellent coffee (the mermaid can eat her heart out) and the breakfast tacos are maybe the best I have ever had. Awesome Western theme with beautiful mural on... More

Fun old-west theme coffee shop with wonderful pastries right down town. It's a pleasant place to relax and the strudel was amazing.
