This little coffee shop was such a great find! I love good coffee and while strolling down main street yesterday, my husband and I stopped in for a much needed cup. The staff here was so great, friendly and made us feel very welcome. We stopped in again this A.M. For a cup and a homemade muffin for our road... More

I'm an iced americano kinda guy and this place ALWAYS gets it right. For such a simple drink you'd be surprised how many places screw it up. We have been coming here for a while and have never had anything less than amazing things to say about this place.

Had two visits for early morning quad expresso on Ice, the place is busy but wait is minimal, obviously all the locals know about the place, as you will see plenty of locals and tourists in the place.

Our B&B gave us coupons to this place. Check out the murals on the walls! Everyone behind the counter is so nice, Love the shotgun shell lights and the coffee is wonderful. We bought beans and brought them home.

Ate breakfast here 3 of the 4 days in town. Love the BIG RANCH sandwich! They even have to go boxes. Coffee is super too.

We are in Fredericksburg often because my husband schedules book signings there two or three times a year. We love this historic German community steeped in mid-19th Century Texana. The Java Ranch is always our coffee stop (quality coffees, lattes, cappuccinos, etc.) and we find it a good place to have a quick breakfast from their pastry and breakfast taco... More

My husband and I stopped in to eat breakfast here one morning. The coffee was great! Lots of choices - I would def recommend going for the coffee! BUT we also had breakfast there - some of the worst food I have ever had. Pretty sure the eggs were powdered... Terrible. My husband will eat anything and he could not... More

Friendly service. Menu is pretty basic but my club sandwich was freshly made. It came to the table dry so I had to go ask for mayo. Otherwise I'd definitely recommend for lunch.

For coffee and a danish, it's fine. There are six different flavors of coffee available, plus all of the required cappuccinos, lattes, etc. For breakfast, I would go elsewhere. The vibe is fun, rustic.
