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.

I absolutely love this restaurant! The food is delicious and homemade. Everything tastes fresh. The desserts are amazing! Selection is limited as they make everything fresh daily so if you want a large assortment to choose from go early. Large area for seating. Wonderful place to stop in for a drink and snack after going to the library next door.... More

We have visited many time, and absolutely everything that we have tried is delicious. Their baked goods are light and delicious. Their cakes are excellent and the Thai chicken salad on a croissant is a must try.

The earlier you get here, the better the food selection, street parking, and service. We arrived at 11:30am for brunch on a Sunday. Only 3-4 entree items were available and the AC and/or fans were not working well with the outside heat. The staff was responsive but took a while to get our items together from the display cases. We... More

What a quaint little spot. .. a restored church with a bakery inside. I've been past here a hundred times and never noticed it. Right beside the library The baked goods are so fresh and pure tasting... not like the over processed foods you taste at other places... kind of reminds me of the taste of foods from the Amish...
