When Hector and Cynthia Pedregon sit and reflect about The Peach Tree, one realizes how fleeting time has been since the spring of 1972. The original German limestone residence was acquired quite by chance. Wanting a warehouse space, the Pedregons walked through the house and talked about the potential uses for the property. Three hours later, they agreed that the house really would make a wonderful store location for their own gift store. The very next day, the realtor was called and the deal was done. In a matter of hours on a Sunday afternoon, the decision to start a family business was made. The Peach Tree Gift Gallery opened on July 13, 1972. In the fall of 1984, the Tea Room opened, thus beginning another chapter in the life of the Pedregon family. With five tables, Hector and Cynthia never envisioned serving any more than coffee, teas and desserts. Cynthia not only prepared all the desserts, she was the only waitress with one helper in the kitchen. On weekends, their son David, who was 16 at the time, would help wait on tables; Carlos, their 12 year old, would help wash dishes; and Tina would help her dad in the gift shop. The year ended with a very successful Christmas season and after the holidays, at the encouragement of customers and friends, Cynthia began serving lunches on Fridays and Saturdays. Her reputation as a fine cook was greeted with sincere compliments from the customers. In the months following, more space was devoted to food service, more staff people came on board, and the serving days went to six - Monday through Saturday. As a result of Cynthia's wonderful creativity, The Peach Tree is proud to have published three cookbooks representing her collection of recipes. Her love of God, life, and food shine throughout her books. We hope to have the pleasure of your company in the shop and Tea Room whenever you visit Fredericksburg. <BR><BR>

      Unfortunately, besides iced-tea, they do not serve tea here. I went with my mother and nieces last week and while the food was very good I was dissapointed that there was no tea service.

      I Love Frederickburg! I wish I lived there so I could eat at the Peach Tree daily. Adorable old house renovated into restaurant. Great food. Try the japaleno pimento cheese sandwishes and soup. Turkey burger is good. I wish they would bring back the Collins Cake!

      Not a tearoom at all...just a nice restaurant with a good menu but poor waitress service. My waitress actually argued with me when I complained about the service! We left without eating.

      I really wouldn't call this a tea room, but it's good to have on the map anyway. It's really a restaurant that leans heavily towards the kind of food that women eat. They have the usual variety of traditional salads and lighter fare (compared to the very heavy German and fried foods in most Fredricksburg eateries), but it's not especially memorable. As a restaurant it gets decent marks, but real tea and afternoon tea lovers shouldn't get their hopes up.

      Whenever my husband and I find our- selves anywhere near Fredricksburg we make sure we have lunch at Peach Tree. Their soups, sandwiches, quiches, salads and desserts are very good. Also, the service is good.

      First tearoom I was ever in and a few years ago. The memory of a wonderful discovery lingers, esp. over a cup of Peach tea! Must confess that I have not been to Fredericksburg in a while but if I were to return, this tearoom would be my first stop down memory lane.

      I am an eleven year old boy who enjoys visiting tea rooms. This wasn't what I would call a tea room. It is a nice restaurant but not a traditional tea room. The pinto bean soup was good but the chicken salad and tuna salad sandwiches were plain tasting. The food was ok but the prices were a bit high. As a restaurant I would recommend it but not as a traditional tea room.
