A very tasty lunch, executed well and quickly for our large 50 person group.

[My wife and I just returned home from leading a group of 50 seniors from our church on a four-day, charter bus outing to the Elkins, WV area.

Quirky building, friendly staff--drop dead fabulous pastries and sandwiches!! The atmosphere is conducive to trendy professionals, families with young ones, stroller moms, and seniors reading the morning paper. Lots of seating, and street parking right in the heart of old town Fredericksburg. Welcoming and the food is so GOOD!! I am addicted to the eggs Benedict, and the pecan danishes,... More

Not pretentious; located in an old church building downtown. Great food prepared with fresh ingredients, displayed and served from glass-enclosed cases. The desserts are eye-popping and seasonal. Fast and satisfying. Dine inside at tables for 2 to 8, or at a table in the courtyard under the shade trees and surrounded by flowers. A great lunch spot!

We were walking around Fredericksburg and just happened upon this gem! We weren't hungry and it wasn't lunch time but the building itself with its " bakery" sign drew us in. What delicious pastries and breads! Friendly staff. Everything looked yummy. The Napoleon was wonderful, the Rosemary, garlic cheese bread was tasty and the cinnamon pull apart was melt in... More

The food was AMAZING especially after running the historic half. I heard amazing reviews from past competitors and of course Trip advisor. I got the rasberry napoleon, chicken provenca sandwich, sweet lime tea, and cucumber tomato parmessan salad. The food was super light, tasty, and the staff was so nice. You can tell there's not many people in fredericksburg except... More

Eileens is perfect for meeting friends or family and is often filled with college professors or book club readers, students, church goers, and people out for a meal with their parents. They have a beautiful outdoor dining area in the back, and recently put in some benches in the front so those with pets can wait outside. The ordering line... More

I planned to arrive in Fredericksburg in time for a early lunch and then go to the lacrosse game at UMW. I found Eileen's on Trip Advisor and knew a self-service bakery lunch was perfect for us. We arrived about 11:30 and parked on the street. There were already people dining at tables in front of the church. We ordered... More

What a cute place! If I return, I will definitely try a sandwich or something else there. The staff was prompt and efficient. The chocolate chip macaroon was absolutely delicious. My biggest regret is that I did not buy two. I didn't try anything else, but if their food is anything like the macaroons it must be delicious.

The best and most unique food in town. Sandwiches made on fresh bread. Salads with delicious flavored. Soup to die for. Beer or craft soda. All served in an old church. The only place to get lunch in Fredricksburg. Go, you will be surprised and delighted.
