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

Eileen's Bakery and Café has soups, sandwiches, wraps, and desserts, and you can get sandwiches grilled. They also have a build your own sandwich option, which worked well for me. We had chile corn chowder and a half sandwich for lunch. Hubby liked his buffalo chicken wrap--we were trying to figure out the flavors, something slightly nutty we thought, it... More

I haven't been in a year or so, but I enjoyed having lunch at Eileen's and plan to go back. Fresh-made sandwiches, soups and other tasty items are served in a converted (no pun!) church house that is decorated in a quaint fashion. Some items have a gourmet flair. Price is reasonable.

Really good food but disappointed they cut off their WiFi and even blocked off the electric outlets so I don't go here anymore. I used to bring clients for meetings 2 to 3 times per week and but can't do it without WiFi - for the $20 bucks a month they saved on power and WiFi they lost about $200/month... More

Recently took my daughter here for lunch and met my mother. We thought the food was quite good. Mom had two salads (green and cauliflower), which she said were quite tasty. My turkey sandwich was very good. The shortbread we ate for dessert was excellent! We sat inside...the few tables outside were occupied. The only thing I felt was a... More

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
