Sorry, We are updating this restaurant menu details.

    Hidden gem? More like hidden treasure! I honestly fell for this place immediately, outside is very charming their setup kind of made me feel like I was in France. The building is super cute and when I stepped inside it felt like I was in someone's kitchen. I was greeted immediately not sure if it was the owner but he's very sweet. Of course I was a little overwhelmed on what to pick, wasn't sure what I wanted at all. Everything looks good & tastes just as amazing. Their tiramisu was the best one I've ever had. Prices are pretty reasonable especially for the quality and presentation of it. After I ordered he brought my food out to me and I just sat down admiring the view & enjoying my cake and coffee. There were lots of people here so that shows you even more how awesome this place is. Think next time I'm definitely going to try the lime cilantro salad.

    Here & Abroad Bistro is definitely a 'hidden gem,' as there really isn't much of a sign to this bistro/bakery. It is tucked between businesses (it's literally facing the parking lot), and offers daily specials, breakfast sandwiches, desserts, and pastries. The chef is Purna Shrestha, and he is welcoming, friendly, and will make any suggestions/recommendations. Some favorites are the salads and the croissant sandwiches, in which the croissants are always baked fresh on a daily basis. The place is small, with only about 4-5 tables, and the place is a nice fresh of breath air from the plethora rows of restaurants in OT Fredericksburg. +freshly baked croissants +daily specials +ask for chef Purna Shrestha :D

    This hidden gem shouldn't remain hidden! It's located behind Hyperion next to a little law office. There are about 4 or 5 little tables for two and a counter full of delicious pastries and other awesome goodies! I ordered a crab cake which came on a croissant and was absolutely delicious! My husband ordered a Turkey, munster cheese, avacado and spinach panini and he loved it! We couldn't resist getting a couple chocolate croissants, a blueberry, and a strawberry/cream cheese croissant to take home as well! I think it's the location that doesn't bring in as much traffic as it should but for today I was happy that it wasn't crowded with a huge long wait like everywhere else downtown had on a Sunday! If you haven't tried this place you should!

  • Sarah N.

    We stumbled on this great spot for lunch one day. Everything is freshly made with lots of care. The owner is the sweet man who works behind the counter, he makes a point to get to know his customers and from all the "regulars" who were there we could taste why. be sure to save room for dessert.

  • Christine R.

    This is my favorite place for lunch. They have everything I want to eat - salads, sandwiches, quiche. Try the strawberry fields salad with the to-die-for poppyseed dressing or the turkey with perfectly melted havarti sandwich. Then treat yourself to a mini chocolate eclair for dessert. It's going to take a long time to try everything on the menu, but I'm going for it. There is outdoor seating area in a beautiful garden setting. The inside is cute too. There are good books and magazines to read although I don't get much of a chance to read them because the food comes quickly.

  • Lillie P.

    Everything on the menu is delicious!!!

  • Karen C.

    I loved my cilantro lime chicken salad. So fresh and crisp and the chicken super tender.

  • Rebecca M.

    What a fab little lunch spot! We stopped through while exploring charming downtown Fredericksburg and were not disappointed. It's a bit of a blink-or-you'll-miss-it spot, tucked back away from the street in a tiny little space with 3 or 4 tables and a counter for ordering. The gentleman who helped us went out of his way to aid in our food selection and to help us get comfortable even with the large stroller in the not large eating area. I had a Ham and Cheese Sandwich with Raspberry Mayo on a Croissant. YUM! And ended the meal with a Cream Puff. DOUBLE YUM! The croissant was buttery-melt-in-your-mouth fantastic. Not in a French style with an outside crunch and flaky interior, but also not the dreaded chewy taste of the croissants you get from the grocery store. It had a magic all of it's own. All together, we had a great experience with our quick bite. Would love to go back again.

  • Kerri C.

    This is such a hidden gem! Amazing sandwiches; great vibe! No other place in town touches their quality and originality of menu items. Highly recommend!

  • Katie S.

    Here and Abroad is a quaint little bistro in downtown Fredericksburg that my husband and I stumbled upon on our way to another eatery down the street. I'm so glad we decided to stop in vs keep going. We both had lunch sandwiches on their fresh croissants and were very happy with them. There were lots of yummy looking treats in the display case and the man working the counter was super sweet. We will gladly come back next time we are in the area.

  • Kaelynn H.

    Enjoyed our breakfast here this morning. Such a sweet hidden bistro! We had the ham, egg, and cheese croissants. They were amazing. Will be back again!

  • Lind C.

    This place is a hidden gem!!! Was passing thru and just happen to park across the street and was amazed! Tiny place but service and quality of food were both thru the roof! Avo cucumber with feta sores on a croissant! Home run!!!

  • Benslie B.

    I love Here & Abroad's cute atmosphere in the heart of downtown, their friendly service, and their variety of unique, tasty sandwiches. One of the stand out sandwiches for me has been the avocado cucumber on a croissant. The veggies taste fresh and the croissant just melts in your mouth.

  • Irene W.

    Really adorable and I would have given it 5 stars had the place been a little better maintained. It is tiny and we only tried the bacon egg and cheese pastry so I may need to go back for a try at the sandwiches and salads. Pretty expansive menu.

  • Greg S.

    Great atmosphere, even better food. Awesome selection with good coffee and tea. Really enjoyed the outside garden and European touches inside. Everything was fresh and good quality. If you need a quick bite to eat, look no further!

  • Mark M.

    This little bakery in the middle of historic Fredericksburg is a quaint little jewel. The fresh baked goods are of the highest quality and the sandwiches like something you would make in your own kitchen. The ambience is also quaint and quiet with a small number of tables inside and a couple outside for when the weather is suitable. If you're looking for great fresh baked goods and sandwiches and maybe a latte or cappuccino for afterwords... this is the place to go.

  • Jeannie W.

    The place is small, so we side outside with garden fresh air. The food are prepared freshening and owner's create his recipe. We enjoin so much an d forget take photo.

  • Veronica P.

    Cute little spot with excellent croissants and breakfast foods!! I haven't had any of their lunch items, but they always look so delicious. The service is also great and I would definitely recommend checking it out!

  • Lisa G.

    Found this place in yelp while I was in town for work for a few days. The food was excellent, I'm only sorry I didn't find it sooner.

  • Yolanda M.

    Had lunch here with the girls yesterday and it was perfect. The food was delicious and seating in the warm sun. I wish there were some Gluten Free choices, but the cilantro and line chicken salad was amazing licked the bowl clean!!!

  • S L.

    Very small bistro but very tasty. Lime and cilantro chicken salad was excellent; but, oh, my, oh, my the pastries were sooooooooooooo outstanding. We sampled the mini cream puffs and the tiramisu. I should have just had several of those for my lunch. You MUST try them. We almost missed the bistro. Enter a side door from a short sidewalk that is just before the coffee shop if you're coming from the Rt 1 direction.

  • Stefan R.

    I just had one of the best croissants I have ever eaten. It was a bit hard to find, but worth the search. I lived here 9 years, and just discovered this place. I can't wait to come back and try their lunch menu!

  • Melissa C.

    Went here with my husband and kids and thought it was very nondescript but once we had a look at the menu it was amazing. Albeit pricey, but I believe a great place for lite lunch or mid afternoon tea or coffee. The outside area was nice and quaint and with the little water fountain in the patio you could forget you were in Fburg. Definitely would return but maybe without the kiddos as it a bit too cramped for them.

  • Shannon W.

    Amazing breakfast croissants! The lunch menu looked delicious and unique. Can't wait to go back!

  • David P.

    Just had a family brunch that highlighted sweet and savory croissants.... Everyone was stoked!! Elephant ears were a hit with my grand daughter and tea lovers, and I have drunk the kool aid on the fete/ spinach croissants! Highly recommend for the office if you're in downtown Fredericksburg or cop a bag to take home. Don't forget a couple of scones......

  • Kara G.

    Stopped here to grab a light breakfast with my husband- I got the ham and swiss croissant, he got the sausage, egg, and cheese. Both were extremely good. The inside is VERY small, so don't plan on sitting down if you come during normal breakfast hours.

  • Richard L.

    Delicious little cafe, lots of sandwiches, paninis, and pastries. Looks good for breakfast too. Inside only seats 8 at 4 little cafe tables (and less than that outside), so it can get a little crowded. But it is crowded for a reason. The chocolate pastry was the best I've had outside of Europe. Highly recommended!

  • Drew S.

    Great little bistro tucked away in a corner off Princess Anne. My wife and I split a quiche and 4 seasons paninni and both were really good. Vernon, the owner, is a great guy. He went out of his way to make sure we were happy. Wish we lived closer. We'd be regulars.

  • James A.

    Outstanding. Small, though. Great baked goods, both savory and sweet. Very reasonable prices. Can be hard to find. Maybe that's why we only just discovered it after years living here.

  • Ellen K.

    Cute, charming café tucked away in historic Fredericksburg. Great patio, friendly staff and excellent food. I definitely recommend the Cilantro and Lime Chicken Salad :)

  • Bobby B.

    Game. Changer. Spinach and Feta croissant, awesome. Chocolate croissant, awesome, ham and cheese croissant, awesome. Cute patio out front.

  • Megan C.

    I'm a huge fan of this hidden gem. Whenever I come to Fredericksburg - I have two things I love to do. Get some local coffee, and visit Here & Abroad to pick up some fresh croissants or have a sandwich. Here & Abroad reminds me of a Parisan bakery/deli. It is small, with only about three tables inside and a few on the front patio. It is nestled on the side of the building right before you reach Hyperion (usually has a chalkboard sign out front). On to the food: They have an amazing selection of fresh croissants (chocolate, almond, etc) elephant ears, and lots of little pastries. I often pick up a bag of croissants for the family - and they love them! They also have a full lunch menu with sandiwches, salads and other items. I usually always get the sandwich (on croissant) with turkey, avocado, lettuce and tomato. Sounds like a pretty simple sandwich but, the croissant makes all the difference. It is always warm, with right amount buttery flavor. They serve the sandwich with a side - I always go with the fruit. It is the perfect lunch spot. My sister, always gets the Cilantro Lime Chicken Salad - which her and her friends seem to be hooked on. Give this place a try!

  • John K.

    Very nice Bistro off the beaten path. Very friendly staff and if you like croissants, you need to come here for breakfast!

  • Michelle A.

    This is an awesome out of the way spot, perfect for lunch on a nice day. I can totally believe this is a locals favorite- most of the people I saw when I was there last weekend were local. My favorite part of this restaurant is the adorable front patio. It shares space with a garden that I believe belongs to the store next door, and it lends a shabby chic vibe to the space. I got the Open Sesame Chicken Salad, and it was a plentiful helping of chicken sparingly dressed with a light creamy sauce... over fresh greens and mandrin oranges and of course, sesame seeds... the dressing that came with it was a great vinaigrette... overall, really tasty. I'd go back to get this salad again for sure. Next time (And oh, there will be a next time for sure) I'm going to try the croissants... everything in the case looked amazing but those in particular... YUM

  • Becky L.

    Had a plan croissant and a piece of the chocolate mousse cake. Both were delicious!! Definitely would go again.

  • Victoria F.

    So delicious! The food is the creative without being too out-of-the-box. It's more like an up-scale sandwich shop. I love how it feels like a little secret garden. A nice quaint place to eat lunch.

  • Thomas W.

    Just had breakfast here and their crab Quiche was delicious. My daughter also loved her ham & cheese croissant. Great find! :)

  • Christopher C.

    I literally have not left and between bites I felt I needed to add a review. Vern is making some great food here. I was planning for a salad but he gave me a taste of the chicken salad. I ended up ordering the chicken salad sandwich, cookie and truffle. While typing I got cookie crumbs on my phone. Crispy on outside and soft in the middle. This is excellent but what really sells this place is the service. Vern is very personable I almost had to cut him off so I could eat. If you are in Fredricksburg try this place!

  • Victoria H.

    One of our favorite places. The owner is so nice and friendly. Love the cilantro chicken salad and tomato gouda soup...also great parstries and desserts! Small, but charming and clean.

  • Justin B.

    The grilled cheese on a croissant was a hit with the kids and the chicken walnut grape salad was outstanding. Worth the drive from Arlington.

  • Victoria A.

    I love this place. Everything tastes amazing and is fresh. You can taste the quality. By far my favorite place to eat in Fredericksburg!!!!

  • Nicole M.

    Found this place on Yelp and loved it. The man who helped us (possibly one of the owners) was very courteous and patient as we ordered, changed our order and ordered again. We ended up getting regular turkey sandwiches on their croissant rolls and both were excellent for simple sandwiches. The croissants were soft and warm and the avocado slices on my sandwich were perfectly ripe ( this has NOT been the case at other sandwich shops I have been to). We also ended up getting the cheesecake brownie, which was as awesome as it sounds. The brownie was the perfect mix of fudge and crispy cake and the cheesecake helped cut the fudgyness so that no milk or digging chocolate out of my teeth was required. The man helping us also made sure to ask if we preferred the side brownies or middle (middle of course) and even warmed up the brownie without us asking (as I didn't hear the ding of a microwave and it took in a few extra minutes to get the brownie back to us, I think he might have even warmed it in an oven). To top it off, Yelp had a deal, that if it was your first time there for lunch, you receive 10% off your meal. I showed the man my phone for the discount and he seemed embarrassed to not know anything about it. He apologized and gave us the discount anyway. We ended up giving him a large tip in the end as he was nice enough to honor a discount he didn't know about and the food was awesome anyway. Loved this place and would come here everyday if it was in Virginia Beach!

  • Patrick S.

    Tasty and fast.

  • Anthony P.

    Great service. Very hospitable. No wifi though. Not close enough to steal Hyperion wifi lol.

  • Draper Y.

    Great place great little hole in the wall. Can get crowded but little outside area is nice. Food is awesome and the pricing is pretty good

  • Kelsey C.

    Most delicious croissants I have ever had as well as the elephant ear pastries! I usually go for the turkey avocado croissant sandwich or the cilantro salad..both are simply perfection. The owner is the nicest man and makes you feel extremely welcomed. Hands down my favorite place to eat in downtown Fredericksburg!

  • Mary-Ann M.

    I went here with a friend today! Service was very good and friendly! I had the chicken salad and that was very good, homemade and fresh! It's highly recommended! I found this place via yelp otherwise I would not have seen it! Definitely would go there again next time!

  • Tristan A.

    OH MY YUMMMMMM!!!! My girlfriend and I split the chocolate raspberry croissant! IT WAS SOOOO AMAZING! I cant wait to go back and get more yummy goodness from here!:)

  • Timothy B.

    Very good. Would recommend this to anyone. Very tight inside, but worth the cramp if you like good croissants. We also had a piece of crab quiche, very good.

  • choochoo t.

    Been here twice. Good decent food but nothing stood out. Both times the hubby and I had sandwiches with chips. We also tried a couple of sweet croissants and weren't blown away (like the other reviewers). Service is good. Seating area is quite small.

  • Sheree Q.

    My husband and I found this place recently and fell in love. What a cool find! We both tried the Quiche... both were totally amazing! We grabbed a few croissants to go...we have not been disappointed with our choices, the almond is our favorite. The coffee is amazing!! Must try the coffee!!

  • Sherrie C.

    Found this little gem thru Yelp, as we were on our way to D.C. So fresh and delicious. Chicken Strawberry salad was fresh delightful. And chicken salad sandwich on multi grain baguette was just as pleasing!!

  • Christy P.

    This little place is adorable and you really would not notice it unless you were looking for it, but they have some DELICIOUS food. They have a variety of sandwiches, salads, and desserts. My sister introduced me to this place, and the first time I went, I think I got some kind of ham sandwich (sorry, don't remember the name, but I think it had brie on it). Delish! I also got a little cup of chocolate mousse (yum!). The chocolate mousse comes in a very small dish, but it is very rich so you really only need a little bit. I went again the other day and got a Lime & Cilantro Chicken Salad (an actual salad, not a chicken salad sandwich) and it is probably one of the most delicious salads I have ever had. The chicken was fresh, pulled chicken, with lots of greens, cucumber, and carrots. There are a few little bistro tables outside that you can sit and eat, and inside has maybe 1 or 2 small tables (the inside is REALLY small, so don't plan on bringing a group of people to eat inside the restaurant). The place is VERY small, so on a busy day I think it might be hard to get a seat, but the food is so worth it. I really want to try the croissants as I keep reading how good they are. The owner is such a nice guy and I hope they stay in business for a long time!

  • N M.

    A really great little cafe off the beaten path. The owner is always there and works so hard, also provides excellent service. Locally owned and operated, always a big plus, then add great food and service, as my kids would say "so very not lame" in other words, pretty awesome!

  • LilMike O.

    Great little place on Princess Anne Street. A true hidden gem among the many random food establishments in Fredericksburg. A must if you're in the mood for something different while shopping downtown.

  • B R.

    Not sure why so many 5 stars... The service, while nice, was slow... it seems only 2 people work there. Took almost 30 minutes to get 3 sandwiches. One was a basic ham and cheese, which when received was a ham and turkey. The sandwiches were OK. People saying that this is the best croissant they have ever eaten must not eat many croissants. I had the chicken salad on a croissant and the chicken salad tasted like canned chicken. The cheesecake brownie was just cake-y. There are only maybe 10 seats, most people who showed up sat on the ground to eat. While the prices were good and the food was decent, I would probably explore more of Downtown F-Burg before I ever came back.

  • Nicole J.

    This place is a gem! We found it about 5 years ago while walking around downtown. The guy who owns it is just the best. The food is great, the ambiance is perfect. My girls LOVE coming here, so does my husband. Great place to meet friends, and not pretentious like its next door neighbor.

  • Linda F.

    In this place I always find two things I rarely find in this town: KINDNESS and DELICIOUS food.

  • Carly C.

    I admit that my expectations were exceeded by this little bakery. I had walked in thinking that it was probably going to be a waste of money, but the ultra pleasant gentleman behind the counter immediately started to change my mind. He was just one of those people that knows how to put a smile on your face. I didn't try any of their lunch items as my mother and I were just looking for something sweet, but I'm sure we will return to try them out. I was very interested in a curry coconut chicken sandwich type thing, and my mother was drooling over just about everything else on the wall menu. We tried the cheesecake brownie, cream puffs, and got my sister a lemon bar. I didn't end up trying the bar but, by looks of it, I would have said it could have used a little work to make it more eye appealing. When the gentleman helping us tried to get one from the top of a stack, one actually broke into pieces because it was sticking to the ones below it. Cardinal rule of pastries: If they are sticky, don't stack them because they may look pretty while being left alone, but as soon as you try to pick one up they get pretty ugly. Who knows though, if I would have tasted it I might think differently. The cheesecake brownie was more cake-like than fifty, and I wasn't too fond of the way the cream cheese topping sat on top like a separate sheet from the brownie. It is annoying to me when bakers get a little carried away with the swirling of the cream cheese and the brownie batter, but not swirling them at all is almost as bad. The cream puffs were a challenge because I think that they were bought pre-made (like the croissants that look like anything you could get out of a grocery). They were good however, and if they were bought and not made in house than the owner picked a good supplier. The filling was great because it was not too thick and not too fluffy, but the chocolate ganache was sweating which lead me to believe it had once been frozen. Over all, this is a very friendly place to go to, and I have a feeling by reading others reviews that the lunch menu deserves a higher rating than this. Sadly, the pastries are lacking the "wow" factor. I will definitely go back to try the lunch items and update this review.

  • Rory B.

    Delicious food and the people there are very nice. It is a great place for a light bite or for lunch. The 4 seasons panini is outstanding and the roasted pepper and Gouda soup is fantastic.

  • P. Shawn F.

    Really enjoyed our lunch at Here & Abroad today. My five had a salad and I had the avocado & cucumber on croissant. Cute little place with a lot of regulars stopping in. Will definitely stop in next time we are in F'burg.

  • Brian K.

    Buttery croissants filled with bacon, egg and cheese - they were so good I got a second one. Nice family owned place - stop by and enjoy today!!

  • Rachel S.

    We usually come to this little cafe after church on Sunday. It is plate licking good, as my husband has demonstrated on a few occasions! The customer service is amazing and the food is amazing! I have nothing bad to say about this place! You have to know where it is, but it is worth the search!

  • Jonathan H.

    You will surely be rewarded in flavor and charm offered by Here & Abroad if you happen to find this bistro cleverly snuggled behind a small fountain and a quiet patio. The little bakery and cafe is sheltered by a vaulted glass ceiling, bathing customers in warm sunlight while pondering treats to try. Choose from pecan squares, lemon bars, and puff pastries or if you're feeling a meal, try the special Angus burger. The burger is so juicy and tender, I can't tell where the meat ends and the dark green lettuce and ripe red tomato begin while I chomp away. It's enveloped by a perfect, fresh bun and complimented by a side of fresh fruit. The chef and baker duo behind the counter are very responsive to customer requests, and make lunch options fresh, right as you order. I am always greeted by a smile, a word of thanks and an excellent lunch when I eat at Here & Abroad.

  • Shane C.

    Stopped here after a botched meal at Jake and Mike's. I've lived downtown for years and have driven by Here and Abroad daily but never knew it was there. I'm glad I found it. While a busy Sunday, the owner was friendly and attentive. We ordered a turkey sandwich on a croissant and an angus burger. Both had great bread. I wasn't a fan of the beef (a frozen patty) but the other fresh ingredients -- including avocado -- made up for it. Also ordered a croissant and pecan bar which were very good. To top it off, they offer Mexican Coca Cola (real sugar, not corn syrup). A great place for a weekday lunch.

  • Krista B.

    This was my third or so time visiting here. I usually get lunch with my mom after spending the morning getting our hair done in Old Town. It is tucked away behind Hyperion with an adorable outdoor patio for dining al fresco. Last weekend I brought the bf to share their most amazing sandwiches I have always enjoyed here. Alas, I am on a carb/sugar detox (the horror!) so I ordered a salad instead. I asked a couple times what was in the strawberry chicken salad and was assured it was pulled chicken with berries and a poppy seed dressing on the side. What I got was a chicken salad- on a bed of greens with strawberries. While the rest of the salad was great, the chicken was mixed with the dressing (a gooey chicken salad vs grilled chicken on top of a salad). It was still good and the berries were super fresh and flavorful. The bf got a burger- even though I insisted on their sandwiches- and said it was just ok. We didn't get any dessert but they looked amazing! Next time I will definitely get a sandwich.

  • andrew j.

    No crescent rolls here only buttery croissants and great sandwiches.

  • Wilson G.

    Fantastic food. Quaint little shop. I work nearby and go here often. My wife loves the cilantro lime chx salad. Not good for parties more than four because its small.

  • Fred D.

    All day you can get fantastic sweet and savory breakfast croissants. The rest of the day, he offers wonderful soups like roasted red pepper with Gouda and Mexican chicken tortilla. Gourmet paninas and sandwiches like cucumber with avocado and feta, ham with Swiss and raspberry mayo and the four seasons panini with turkey, spinach, avocado and muenster. Satay chicken wrap and lime and cilantro Chicken salad are an example of the wrap and salad choices. The owner is beyond nice and all of the food is excellent.

  • April H.

    Visited here & abroad today - absolutely out of this world yummy!!! My girlfriend and I shared lime and cilantro chicken salad, oven roasted turkey & muenster cheese sliced avocado croissant and the roasted red pepper and smoked Gouda soup. Everything was delicious and flavorful! To top it all off we had the most tasteful toasted almond cream dessert cake! Service was superb!!!! Excited to go back!

  • Chuck C.

    Very glad that we wandered away from the street and found this place hidden away. Delicious, fresh sandwiches and great outdoor seating.

  • Lindy B.

    Perfect lunch! Had half salad and half roast beef with pepperjack and ate outside on the patio. Couldn't of asked for anything more!

  • Charlotte T.

    Hands down the best croissants I've EVER had. I'm a good ol' plane jane croissants gal, but their filled croissants are fantastic. I also tried one of their sandwiches, and I'm so happy with the consistency of great products they have on their menu. I had a ham and brie sandwich on one of their croissants....yum!

  • Claire S.

    Amazing little place. The service is as friendly and welcoming as it gets. My husband is the worlds biggest fan of their chicken salad and my favourite is hands down the Angus burger with feta and avocado. Highly recommend Here and Abroad.

  • Patty P.

    This is my favorite café in Fredericksburg. The lunch menu is basically sandwiches, soups, and salads as well as some homemade desserts and for breakfast they have filled croissants. The prices are a little more than you might expect but the quality of the food is outstanding and the menu is more on the "gourmet" side. It's a small café and there are not a lot of tables so you might have to wait a bit if you go when the lunch crowd hits. Also there is usually only one guy working there so it isn't the fastest service but he is great and very accommodating and the food is worth the wait. I you go on a nice day you can sit outside by the rose bushes where you'll get a great view and ambiance.

  • Jacqueline D.

    My new favorite lunch place in Fredericksburg. The service is always prompt and the food is made to order. So far we have only tried their lunch items but every single thing has been fresh and excellent. The pastries have less appeal aesthetics wise compared to say Eileen's, however judging by the quality ingredients that go into their lunch items I doubt they will disappoint the palette. Looking forward to trying one soon!

  • R D.

    I'm not from VA but found this little gem passing through Fredericksburg this weekend. I ordered a roast beef croissant sandwich, complete with cheddar and horseradish sauce with a side of chips. The chips were UTZ brand, but still tasty. The sandwich was delicious! Just enough horseradish sauce to make your nose burn with a large bite, but not too much to make you cry. Like many others here have said, the croissant itself was delicious! The little birds outside in the garden also enjoyed it. Overall, a good place to visit. I'd stop again.

  • Chris M.

    If you're looking for a hidden garden lunch spot in Fredericksburg this is the place to go. Right in downtown behind Hyperion, but fairly invisible (look for the smallish sign near road). Their salads (the strawberry one especially) are delicious, but I strongly recommend you get the dressing on the side, or you will have way too much. Also, add avocado to any salads that don't come with it to make your meal double plus good. If you want a fancy coffee this is not the place; he just does regular coffee and some other basic drinks for the most part. It usually takes about 15 minutes for them to make your food (not super fast if you are in a hurry), but it's worth it. And the owner/employee is super friendly.

  • S K.

    One of the best kept secrets of Fredericksburg! I LOVE this place! It is always super fresh and yummy. I wish the space was larger so that more people could enjoy it! That is my ONLY complaint ;). My favorite is the strawberry chicken salad -- it is SO yummy!

  • Caitlin J.

    We were headed down to VA beach from Baltimore for the weekend and wanted a place we could stop for lunch on the way. I found this bakery/deli based on Yelp reviews and it did not disappoint! Out first time in fredericksburg - this was located in the old town area with lots of cute shops and restaurants around. Parking was a little tricky but we found a spot in the public lot a few blocks away. Small place with just a few tables inside and out. Friendly, quick service. And GREAT food! I had the cucumber avocado and feta spread sandwich on a multigrain baguette. Can't really think of anything it needed to make it better! I also appreciated the option for fruit on the side instead of chips. My husband had the half sandwich and soup combo with the turkey and avocado sandwich and the roasted red pepper and smoked Gouda soup. Soup was So creamy and delicious! It was just what we needed for a quick enjoyable lunch stop with some healthy lunch options.

  • Jane P.

    This bakery/cafe is AMAZING. It is hidden and hard to spot because it's right next to a very popular coffee joint. They have some of the best pastries I have ever had. I have been to france too, so it's not like I'm basing this off panera or something. Its REALLY good. Mostly croissants in the morning, they also have some really nice French loaves. For lunch, I usually get the chicken salad on a croissant b/c it has grapes. But I know they have some other really good options. It's not much of a coffee place as far as specialty drinks, but when the weather is warm, sitting out on the terrace is beautiful and relaxing Oh and did I mention that the owners/staff are so friendly and nice? Well they are! Thank you

    The service is always excellent. I have gotten a variety of things there. The bean soup is awesome, the croissants are delicious and buttery. I love the filled croissants. You cant go wrong with sweet or savory. The scones are delicious. The sandwiches are always fresh and the flavor combinations are well thought out and executed. This has become a favorite stop in for me, and I love to tell all of my friends about the little hidden cafe behind Hyperion.
