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.

Stopped for a late breakfast on a weekday. The menu is simple: breakfast tacos, pancakes, French toast, etc. They also offer fresh pastries but you need to get there early for the pastries. They sell out fast. All of the food is good. I highly recommend this place for breakfast. I imagine they are really busy on the weekends so... More

We have eaten here several times on different stays in Fredericksburg and it has been excellent every time. It is a great breakfast stop. I have had the breakfast plate one occasion and we have had the breakfast tacos nearly every time. Other people we talked to said the pancakes were also wonderful. If you can sit outside in the...

We were in Fredericksburg, shopping of course, and stopped in Mahaley's for breakfast. They offer a standard breakfast as well as a variety of breakfast tacos. I would suggest the "trash taco". It has a little bit of everything in it and tastes great. The cinnamon rolls and turnovers are quite tasty, as well. Highly recommend.

Decided to go and grab some breakfast this AM. Saw this little out of the way place late last night. Thought it might be a place for some pasty or something quick for breakfast. Boy was I wrong! Great little dive to get some really good traditional breakfast or a delicious cinnamon roll or other pastries. Service was great ambiance... More
