Coffee tasted ok but was only luke warm. Food is just reheated costco processed fare. Nothing special. everything was overpriced. For example, 9 bucks for a mediocre breakfast sandwich. Not worth it.

None of the employees and hardly any customers were wearing masks, which made me question the cleanliness and adherence to state and federal recommendations on safe practices during the pandemic. For this reason, we didn’t feel comfortable to eat their food/have their coffee and left....I was excited to try Java Ranch but will wait until this establishment follows proper safety protocols.More

Enjoyed our ride through Fredricksburg on our road trip in September. Charming shop, loved the giant cowboy mural and the shotgun shell Christmas lights. Good service. Appreciated the staff wearing masks.

The minute you walk through the doors, the smell of coffee beans and old Texas wooden floors greet you. I almost wish there was swinging doors like in the Wild West. But the cold brew was excellent and the baristas were kind and helpful! They...also were practicing healthy disease preventing habits like wearing masks. Much appreciated at this time!!!More

My son and I dove in here on a cold winter day after hauling goats to the sale. Cute little shop with great murals of classic ranch scenes in the hill country. We had coffee, cocoa and crumpets of some variety, all very enjoyable.

Very accessible, very friendly coffee house offering a range of coffees and teas as well as pastries, cookies and pies. Really authentic setting and decor, warm hospitality, tasty food and decent coffee (at last). Highly recommended.

Excellent Espresso! Good, local place to go for a good cup of coffee. Fast, clean and consistent no matter who’s working.

Look, I know coffee and I know coffee houses, from Berlin and Vienna to New York and DC. This is the only one that ever made me want to move somewhere just to be able to go to the coffee house. Atmosphere is great! Coffee...is great! Really an 11 on a 10 scale. A++++++++ Maybe it is love.More

Got there early in the morning and it was already booming with business. Looked to be both local and out of towners. The line was long but they knew how to make it move. Lots of pastries to choose from but the coffee, latte, was...great. Great service and friendly staff.More
