Located on Main Street, Java Ranch is done out like an old style saloon. Also sell a few souvenirs. Excellent macchiatos. I'd have rated it a 5 if they'd served them in a proper cup, like the ones they sell! Freshly brewed coffee deserves a proper cup not a paper one!

Good coffee with a line of locals waiting for to-go cups. We enjoyed the breakfast tacos but this popular spot is extremely loud with enthusiastic conversations.

You will want to drop in here, early in the AM and grab your spot...do a little people watching, and enjoy your coffee at half Starbucks prices!

It was a bit chilly out so coffee was a welcome sight. The Ranch was nicely done - the decore. The coffee was good and it was busy so I always think that is a tell tale sign of a business doing well. I would recommend stopping here if you like coffee.

We stopped in for a quick afternoon coffee and we both ordered small cappuccinos. We were amazed that the cup was mostly foam and very little coffee. We know that they are smaller than regular coffees but it was two gulps and it was over and for over $7 for both...it is a fun place to visit, fun environment and... More

After searching and walking in a couple coffee / breakfast places we found Java Ranch. Luckily for us this place was perfect. It's western decor, helpful and caring staff and it's good coffee made a good end to our visit in Fredricksburg. Suggestion: Grab a table then wait in line. My only regret is we didn't find this place sooner.... More

Delicious coffee without the ridiculous price. Inside is very quaint & rustic. They also serve beverages other than coffee (including beer)! Very happy we found this cafe!

Was able to find my everyday morning wake up drink, iced quad espresso, and my wife enjoyed the mocha latte. Located on Main Street, offers more than coffee, great place to start the day.

Was running out of steam in the afternoon and needed a pick me up to continue exploring. The store was clean with many tables. There are multiple types of coffee and snacks available. I just picked up an Americano. It was excellent, and cheaper than that other coffee shop everyone knows.
