Three days in a row good!

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... read 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.

We visited Fredericksburg during a trip from Austin to San Antonio. In Fredericksburg we wanted a good Espresso and some pastries and visited Java Ranch. We did not get disappointed. Very good pastries!

This is the place to stop in and get rejuvenated from all that walking on Main Street! Really good lattes/expressos/ etc. Good tea selection also. Also offers bakery items. Great place to take a break from that walking and just chill out.

Visited this place twice whilst staying in Fredericksburg. The coffee is really good but the staff, although friendly, are not on the ball. Ordered apple pie with icecream and a portion of cheesecake. Had to ask twice for the cheesecake as they kept forgetting to bring it out. Would still go back there if I was in the area though.

Had coupons from our B&B. The Java Ranch was listed on the coupon. What a wonderful place and wonderful deal. The house blend coffee is almost like being at home. Had the breakfast croissant, very soft pastry and full of ham, cheese, and egg. Very filling! Can't say enough great food, nice atmosphere, and the owners are very nice.

very small seating area but there were lots of folks who came in and left with their orders. We had to go up and ask for a menu as there was not one where you could make your choices ahead of time. Some of the ladies in my group did not care for the strong coffee. I had the Chia... More

One of just a few places open early in downtown. Coffee to was good, food was good, and the service was good. Not the best place in the world, but its solid.

An excellent alternative to national brand coffee houses! In addition to the traditional coffee/tea and pastries, Java Ranch offers several tasty breakfasts like huevos rancheros and a lunch menu that features local specialties like BBQ Beef sandwich. All at reasonable prices. It is also a good place if you are looking to use Wifi in a peaceful environment without food... More
