The food at Eileen's is light fate but very hearty. I had tuna melt which was very good. I also tried their peanut soup which was very spicy and delicious. I also had the apple tart which is my favorite.

Nothing in this place matches. The building is a former church, the furniture a former fixture in somebodies' place but its the hippy-dippy, carefree, and free spirited attitude makes it so appealing. Not too dissimilar to the Hyperlion coffee house just up the street with its mix of furniture and collegiate atmosphere. No complaints about the baked goods - went... More

Located in an old church, this bakery/cafe is amazing. The service is individualized, friendly, and fast. The Eggs Benedict was amazing. Ingredients are obviously fresh and everything I had tasted like it had just been made. The prices are very reasonable. Samples of various baked goods are set out. I tried a bite of an apple pastry and realized I... More

Please be considerate to future customers and update your hours when you are closed for "Santa Breakfast." Trip Advisor shows open at 8am on Sunday. Unfortunately, I went out of my way to patronize you business, I arrived before 8am and waited for you to open. When no one opened at 8am I found an employee who stated you were... More

I went in to get some baked goods to give as a thank you gift to another downtown Fredericksburg shop. The woman who helped me took a lot of time and care to create a beautiful box of assorted fresh (and delicious) baked goods. You can tell a lot about a restaurant by the number of patrons it has -...

We have gone several times, in the afternoon, and every time there were several items not available. It is a little frustrating when you can't order an item off the list. On the other hand, their baked goods are quite good.

Wonderful soups, sandwiches, salads and fabulous bakery items in a renovated church. It's busy but worth the wait!

Lots of baked goods - we're not talking paleo here - places like these are why the cheat day was invented. And, it didn't look like a gourmet coffee set up, but the coffee was extremely good. I'll be back.
