Very pleasant spot with good food, interesting choices and an excellent bakery. It is self service so we ordered at the counter and then sat outside. The coconut cupcake was memorable and the sandwich and salad selections were varied and creative. It is right in town next to the library so it's very convenient.

We visited Fredericksburg for the first time over this past weekend. We made better time on the roads than we thought we would, so we were looking for a spot for breakfast. The first place we tried (that was highly rated on TA) was nothing more than a glorified Starbucks so we were looking for an alternative. Outside of the... More

Great pairing of atmosphere and quality food. Anything with bread is a good choice since they bake it there. However, you can't go wrong with other choices too!

Yeah, I realize that this place has almost a cult following, but I'm not part of that cult, and I'm trying to be objective. In fairness, my wife likes the place, but I think it's more because of the general idea of it than based on their actual merits. This is based on two visits. I can't handle it any... More

I was like a kid-in-a-candy store while perusing all the delicious items. My faves were the soft, spongy, sweet Brioche Rolls while DH enjoyed the chocolate chip and Chocolate Crinkle cookies. Staff were very friendly and helpful. We will definitely be back when next in the Fredericksburg area. If you found this review helpful, please choose “yes” below. Happy travels!

I've been a couple times because everyone seems to rave about it and the food was pretty good, but not as good as what they charge for it. It's was very hot inside in the summer which worried me because the food that was given to us wasn't very cold. A lot of the food sits out on top of... More

"what a cute place!", i thought as we walked up and into Eileen's for the first time 2.6 years ago. i was immediately smitten by the sweet yellow bricks covering the place as well as its arched doorway - so quaint, right? then, just inside the foyer, there was an antique sideboard filled with cards and fliers and papers -...

I have been going to Eileen's for years, at first I was impressed with the move to the new location, on my visit last fall, I noticed the space between the tables became tighter, and a maze when leaving. Two weeks ago, we stopped in for bread & crumb-cake (to-go). The bread was o.k., the crumb-cake was a letdown.

I have to give Eileen's just an average rating. My husband and I have been going to Eileen's since they were at their original location. We really want to still like this place BUT... the service which has never been stellar is now just blah. We are lucky to get anymore than a "what can we get for you". As... More
