I go for the croissants

I only know abouit the croissants - they are very good, and that is miles ahead of most croissants not only in Fred, but most of Virginia.

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.

Stopped in Eileen's for lunch on the way home from the Cherry Blossom Festival in Washington, DC. It is in Old Town Petersburg in an old church. It is adorable-it's been redone and is homey and charming with nice local art (I'm assuming). I had a monte cristo sandwich toasted on a sugary brioche bun. It was delicious. Just the... More

The bakery is in an old church. Very different venue. They have a lovely courtyard if the weather is nice. Everything is prepared in a case. You browse and pick out your sandwich or salad. I felt prices were a little high. I had a Cuban sandwich and a diet soda. I think my bill was about $14. Thought that... More

You can't tell much from the outside going in what it's all about as it's an old church, and when you walk in, you walk into a foyer and then go through another set of doors, and there are no windows to see inside for a peek; but, when you walk in, the ceiling height and windows make it a... More

Even duing Restaurant Week. We had their $10.15 offering of soup, salad, drink and dessert. Although the split pea/ham soup was a little salty, overall the entire meal was well-prepared and good-tasting. This is a great spot to go for breakfast or lunch with a lot of variety in their offerings.

This is a great place for a really good breakfast, brunch or lunch. The food is delicious. You order in a line and hopefully someone is in front of you so you can take your time reviewing all the options. It is a little too expensive to go there with regularity but for the occassional treat, it really can't be... More

I stopped in to get a sandwich on a recommendation and was very underwhelmed. The staff acted like they didn't want to be there and acted like they were frustrated that I asked questions. I have a few food allergies so I ask questions. I wanted to build my own sandwich but was informed that service was done for the... More

I am a local who enjoys Eileens but in the interests of "equal time" I will list my opinion and that of one of my friends. I like standing in line for the food, the variety of tasty casual sandwiches and dishes they offer, and sitting outside in their backyard when the weather is pleasant. When I have to sit... More
