We had quite an interesting experience at Mahaleys, but only due to a very rude customer. As we were sitting down a customer was throwing a fit and stormed out, the owner went out to make things right and the customer sped off. Then he returned to distastefully remove his tip from the jar. So right away my husband made... More

Not much to enjoy here. The food (breakfast) was pretty plain and unimpressive, even the coffee was nothing to write home about.

Stopped at Mahaleys for breakfast one morning and their tacos are wonderful!!! My husband had their trash taco, which has a little bit of everything and was delicious. I had their bacon potato and egg taco. Both were a great way to start our morning and service was wondefrul.

Very friendly staff, outdoor and indoor seating, good coffee and breakfast taco with fruit at a good price. They are also open for lunch and dinner. The place was packed for breakfast.

Absolutely the best breakfast burritos in Fredericksburg! Other places they can tend to be dry, but these were fantastic. Many options to chose from. When you can't make up your mind, try the "Trash" options for a little bit of everything (eggs, potatoes, cheese, chorizo and brisket). My mouth is watering just thinking about it.

Interesting cafe. Stopped for breakfast and sat outside to be served. Wait staff were efficient and friendly. Menu is basically tacos, pancakes, muffins, etc. but prices are fair. I ordered the potato and egg taco, which came wrapped in tin foil and was cooked properly. A bit too much red pepper for my taste but I may have been able... More

This is a great place to go for breakfast! They have a good selection of breakfast items and everything was delish! It is on the small side so if you have a large group you may not be able to be seated together.

The cinnamon roll was delicious. Fortunately we got the last one. The breakfast tacos are phenomenal (the tortillas are the bomb). The service was slow, but they are also serving the B&B and making to-go orders. Just be patient you won't be disappointed. The seating outside is nice. If noise bothers you just sit inside. Nice staff. Great coffee (self... More

The staff is friendly and if you are lucky enough and early enough, try a cinnamon roll. So good! The tacos are the best. Every time we take someone there, they love it and tell others.
