The place has a big potential, but the staff, in particular a middle aged lady, was extremely rude and aggresive. So much for the hospitality! Otherwise it was a splendid day in a beautiful town.

We were doing the tourist thing. Walk by the building, stopped, looks like a ole church. Stuck our heads in. Wow, what a great use of a ole building. Really enjoyed the pasteries, and coffee. If in the area again, will stop in for sure....More

Great original reciept sandwiches and salads plus great variety of great tasting pasteries. Not a fancy place. A little run down.

This was on one of our Flavors of Fredericksburg tour. Got to meet the talented chef and taste her chicken salad, special brewed tea and a cake. All was so good. Have to go back, just to have breakfast and enjoy this wonderful place!

If you want fresh daily pastries, a salad or a sandwich then this is the place. You will be sitting in the sanctuary of a former church. Every thing is always fresh.

You would think it is a small church on Caroline Street close to the Library; however, instead it is a cafe and bakery of the best kind - Eileen's Bakery & Cafe. They start with breakfast and end with late lunch. Scrumptious sandwiches, sides, deserts,...More

First the place is super cool because it is located in an old historic church. It's so nice on the outside it invites you in just to see what's up past the doors. Once you go in the front door you see they have gone...More

We discovered this place because of their allergy free choices for our wedding cake. Eileen was more than accommodating and gave us a huge selection to choose from to include icing and cake flavors. She even went into detail to discuss the overall cake construction....More
