The location and decor at this location is as close to perfect as you can get. The overall feeling is relaxed, comfortable and inviting. Some of the other Fresh locations feel more like a take out counter, not this location.

Chelsea was our sever. She was friendly, knowledgeable and quite funny. She's working in the right field for sure. The food was great value, temperature and portions were more than generous.

Excellent experience. We'll definitely return and tell other to as well.

This was my 3rd visit to the place and the food was disappointing. The French fried looked like it was last left over lot and my BBQ burger bread was old and hard and broken with first bite. The soup that husband ordered was fresh. Again the cake was nice but the sweet potato fries looked like a old lot! Not sure if it was just a sad Monday lunch or the standard is falling!

It was my first time to Fresh and I will definitely return. We sat inside and the noise level was quite good. My hard of hearing parents probably would do fine here. The menu is very large, with lots of options to entice new vegetarians, vegans, and those who just want to try eating better. I’m not vegetarian, but love veggies, as does my 5 year old. However my husband is definitely not. Despite this he really enjoyed the Beyond Meat Burger, fries and onion rings. My daughter liked the hummus and the spinach/mushroom dumplings. I really enjoyed the squash tacos, which had a nice combo of textures and flavours.

Always love the food at Fresh and this is our first time dining at this location and during covid. Weather was nice so we sat in the patio area. A bit noisy at times since we are right on the road but overall experience is still great.

We are not vegans but always happy to eat fresh and flavourful dishes from Fresh.

Must order items include the buffalo cauliflower and onion rings! I've been going to Fresh for many, many years. The food is always consistent and delicious. On this particular day, we ordered the buffalo cauliflower, a large protein bowl on rice with ranch sauce, all star salad with tahini caesar dressing, the beyond cheeseburger, and the ginger fire ball hot drink which comes with candied ginger. My friend who is not vegan ordered the beyond burger and absolutely loved it - he said you wouldn't be able to tell the difference from a beef burger! Everything was delicious and the portions were big! It was fantastic to be able to eat in the restaurant after it was closed due to the pandemic. It's always wonderful to support local!

We ate here a few weeks ago and returned as the food is wonderful. I had the avocado smashed toast and cauliflower tacos while my partner had the supergreen Caesar. The toast was outstanding as was the salad. My tacos had cooled as the waiter did not space out my selections to allow time between the two options. In any event the squash tacos are much better. Will come back again.

Fantastic place! We were nearby for a 3 day conference, and loved it so much, that we came back again because there are so many options in the menu we wanted to try! Hands down, best buffalo cauliflower ever. So good! Also, I tried a mushroom coffee which I was very unsure of what it would be, and it was delicious. Wishing more places served incredible options like Fresh!! Also, please open a location in Edmonton 🤞🏼
