Definitely lots of locals here for breakfast, coffee and a morning visit - food was breakfast: simple, easy, relatively quickly. Servers all quick to refill coffee mugs, smiling even early in early hours. We liked it and had breakfast there on several visits to Fredericksburg.

We arrived at 9:45 on a Sunday morning. No wait. He had chicken fried steak and eggs with a pancake instead of toast. I had migas. Food was homemade and cooked to order. Service was friendly. Several staff visited our table offering refills and service. Felt like we were eating with family. Why wait for an hour or more somewhere... More

Very good breakfast. Friendly service. Great biscuits! We enjoyed the architectural details in this old house, and will return on our next trip here!

My husband and I enjoyed eating breakfast at The City Cafe. It was a busy hopping place but we were seated quickly and waited on quickly. The waitresses helped each other and therefore the patrons were constantly helped. We could see that there were regulars as well as first timers and the waitresses were able to help make great breakfast... More

We were looking for a place to eat in town that we hadn't yet visited. The City Café was the spot. We arrived and were seated as soon as we walked in. We were waited on just as quickly. The wait staff was very friendly. Our food came out very quick and it was delicious! The prices were very reasonable.... More

Enjoyed a Saturday early morning breakfast at City Café with mostly German locals. We had migas and pancakes, both outstanding and more food than either of us could eat. The staff is fast and friendly. Total for both us with tip was only $18. Highly recommend.

Stopped in for a late breakfast on a Sunday, and there was no wait. The staff is friendly, maybe just a tad slow, but the food is delicious.

Prices are very reasonable, our food was hot and fresh. My spouse had the senior special and I had it with one pancake. The pancakes are large and tasty. I had ham instead of bacon or sausage, which was a great choice. Our meal was very good and service was good. We will definitely return!

The food is fantastic. Delicious! The service is ok. It wasn't really packed, and we were kinda forgotten. No one came by and checked on us, no refills until one of the servers went to refill another table. Depending where they seat you, you will be entertained by the kitchen staff's comments. You can hear the cooks calling things out,... More

When we go to places like Fredericksburg, we always seem to go to a touristy restaurant, aren't impressed and STILL drop a bundle. We came here for lunch on day two, and back for breakfast every day for the rest of the trip. The senior citizen breakfast of 2 eggs, bacon, sausage or ham, hash browns and toast is 5.99... More
