Good Vegetarian Options
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.

Sorry, but we waited over 45 mins for our Happy Hour Apps, ordered dinner and were told it would be another hour and we needed to leave for an event (we had reservations at 5pm for a 7pm event). Our appetizers were complimentary as well as a take out dessert but we were disappointed we were unable to eat our mains and enjoy the space.

The food was incredible... amazing. The service was not very attentive and we felt like an inconvenience. Perhaps it was an off night, we'll definitely give it another try!

This is a great place for the vegan experience without loosing out on flavour. I didn’t miss meat and was excited by the way different ingredients were used in classic style pub dishes like nachos or poutine. Loads of healthy options and they were able to adapt to my rather weird allergy of black pepper, which is a real bonus! Happy hour drink selections were also tasty.

This was my first time at the Front location. Ambiance was nice, staff was pleasant, food came quickly and was good as I've come to expect from Fresh.

It's beautiful in there but the brunch is terrible. Our entire table's food was cold and tasted like it had been prepared yesterday. It was far too expensive for the quality received. Usually I really like Fresh but this was disappointing.

Food was fresh but was terribly seasoned. Had the tofu steak in the power bow and it was unbelievably salty. The rest of the dish was flavourless. Service and ambiance was good though.

Great food! It was really cold in the restaurant. We had to leave our scarves and sweaters on to eat. Oh, and we were never asked if we would like coffee or brought the dessert menu. I didn’t notice the awesome selection of goodies until I was on my way out. We would go back though. Even if just for the onion rings 😋

Had a flatbread and a Nanaimo bar. The flatbread was a little underwhelming. Same with the Nanaimo bar. Decor and service were both fabulous.

1) They're accomodating. Had reservations for a diff time if dressed and look right, expect top-notch prompt correct orders. Dressed casual or have melanin, expect incorrect orders & being forgotten. 3) Eat/drink before coming here. Portion sizes are small, i.e. a $2 dip is 3tbs, $15 drink is 8 oz w/ 1/2 shot of alcohol. 4) Great food if vegan, gluten-allergy, celiac, etc... 5) Paramount is a few steps away, offers veg/vegan for 1/2 the price and 2x the flavour. Enjoy!

Great varied menu & quality of food was fresh. Portion size was perfect, but a little high on price. I’ve been here many times and the service is sometimes slow at peak times, but today we ate at 2 pm & service was great. The restaurant is decorated beautifully & is a really nice space to dine in. Also did the take out cookies which were fantastic. Vegan, vegetarian or even meat eaters can enjoy a meal here. Love it.

Service was far too slow for a downtown lunch spot, with our orders taking just over 30 minutes to be served. That said, the food is good enough to make up for it.

I love this restaurant, and only wish it would open west of the city in 'the 905' where I live. (PLEASE!)
They know so well how to make marvellous vegan food, such a treat to have someone make this for me! and they deserve my 5* rating in every category. I've rated it Quiet because we were there after 1 pm midweek when the crowds were leaving, but I forget from pervious visits if it's noisy when crowded. Our server happily welcomed us to stay for what turned out to be a very long chat after we'd paid our bill :) - a good thing about going out of peak time. I'll be back again. And again .....

This is my third time getting Fresh and I will come back for more. I am always satisfied by the food and the menu has so many options. I’m not vegan, but this is one place that I don’t miss meat/seafood at.

This is the best Fresh in Toronto. The food is the same great quality as the others but the space is better. You don’t feel so crowded in and the noise level is such you can still have a conversation. Kudos to the staff who are amazing.

Hi Hanna, I'm sorry to hear that it was noisy when you dined with us. Did you know that we have 4 other locations in Toronto? If you're even up by Fresh on Eglinton (just east of Yonge), you may enjoy that location better!

i like the interior of the restaurant, the waitresses were friendly and willing to introduce the menu for first time visitor. Me and my friend ordered the buffalo cauliflower and feta flatbread along with some drinks, the food and drink were alright to me, nothing special that makes me want to visit again.

I’ve come here multiple times and usually a fan of the food, (slightly expensive) good-tasting vegan options for all! But this time was remarkably off, my waffle was cold and the pancakes were drier than previous experiences. Service was friendly and informative as usual for my gluten-sensitive attendee.

The food was delicious; the restaurant felt bright and cheery; and the service was attentive. The only critique I have was the noise level. It was loud and this made it hard to have conversations at our table.

Incorrectly prepared a couple of meals... one Buddha bowl was asked to be with sauce on the side, but all of them came with sauce on the side; tofu not prepared as requested so had to be sent back.. however the staff was very accommodating otherwise so they made up for it.
