Since 1999, FRESH RESTAURANTS have been challenging the stereotype that vegan or vegetarian food is bland and boring. Our main goal each day is to provide freshly made food and juice as quickly as possible, without compromising on quality or service. We cater to all people, whether vegetarian, vegan or altogether new to this kind of eating, providing items everyone can relate to. Check out our menu for yourself, we're sure you'll find something you like, whether you're a dedicated vegan, or have never had a vegetarian meal in your life.
We make our food from scratch with wholesome natural ingredients, so you never have to worry about hidden chemicals or preservatives. Our food is being prepared in our kitchens almost all day, every day. It has to be, since we don't freeze anything, or keep it for longer than necessary. We make it and serve it as soon as possible, day after day. We don't cook with butter, dairy, eggs, honey or any other hidden animal by-products.

It's a little cold in this location. Big place; heat rises.
Also, are the brunch pancakes smaller?
Great food, overall! :)

The decor and atmosphere was nice. My meal was bland and had to ask for dressing which I'm sure had been forgotten. Onion rings were good maybe a little overfried. Drinks were amazing. Service by first server was wonderful.

LOVE the food but why is it so very cold? I must have been sitting under a vent and they had cold air blowing. On February 5. Sure, it was only -5 outside, which isn't as bad as the -30 we'd been dealing with for weeks leading up to that, but in what world is cold air necessary indoors in the middle of a Canadian winter? Enjoy the food and wear layers. I kept my jacket on the whole meal. And realized I had to do the same thing the last time I was there too.

Fresh restaurants in Toronto have long had a reputation for great food - from super healthy choices to some fun fried options - a perfect combination. Once again had to start with their signature quinoa coated onion rings, which never disappoint. Brought along a friend who isn't vegan and they could not get over how delicious their meal was. The new location on Front Street East is much larger than the other locations and has better acoustics, so the noise level is definitely lower.

Portion sizes getting smaller. Had the Buffalo Cauliflower and it was half the size. Waiter said they reduced the size because the portions were too big for an appetizer. They reduced the size but not the price!

I love the new luck of this location but this is the second time we got bat service and the quality of the food was very poor. My friend ordered the Big Salad $15, but boy, was this salad sall. it had nothing but letters and tomato and when she told the server, he gave us attitude and told us that we are getting quality not quantity.

Had the Beyond Cheeseburger feature and it was unreal. I was so in love with the endless amount of sprouts on my burger. Their homemade “cheese” sauce was sooo good paired with the Chao. I loved the decor and atmosphere. Definitely recommend and definitely coming back!

Food is always great at Fresh - some items can be pricey though. Our server was nice but seemed busy so didn’t really interact with us. We asked someone else for another drink and her response wasn’t the friendliest telling us it’s not her we need to ask the server - she could have atleast passed along the msg, we had to wait 10 more minutes to order the second drink. The aesthetic of the restaurant is very nice - Instagram worthy for sure!

Good Service, Great ambiance, disappointing soup and cornbread. salad was great and quinoa onion rings stellar
No consideration given by server when soup was not eaten and was made clear that flavour was not enjoyable.
Could have made a small concession as we spent a few $ there

We came to Fresh on Front for my pals birthday brunch on a Saturday around noon. There were three of us (all vegan). The food was delicious with many cocktails/juices/lattes/smoothies to choose from - literally an entire menu of just beverages from alcoholic to hot to super healthy! The food menu was just as impressive with a small breakfast food item menu and a large lunch/dinner menu. My one friend ordered the banana pancakes, the other ordered “the big breakfast”, and I ordered the tangled Thai bowl. All three were eaten up in no time!

The only compliant is that we wanted to order a doughnut dessert for the birthday girl, and their selection was a lot smaller than their menu. We asked for a few different types and the waiter kept saying “sorry we don’t have that one”. I’m unsure if it was because they weren’t made yet as it was early in the day or of it was because they were sold out. But we still got a wonderful birthday dessert & she was one happy camper (so no big deal there!).

Would recommend to all vegan and non-vegan pals. Hope to return real soon!!!
