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.

The service from Louise at the bar was fantastic! My niece asked me to pass along that the sweet potato fries were ‘the best she’s ever had in her entire life’.

My wife and my four kids aged 13, 11, 9, and 7 are all vegetarians and we don’t eat dairy. The food is really great and doesn’t have the processed flavour of regular restaurants that offer veggie options. But what most impressed me was that my mother came for lunch and she notoriously hates vegetarian food, even for the thought of it, and loved her meal here (in fact took leftovers home, which she never does!). We had a variety between us with zero complaints. Add great ambiance and service and it was a fun lunch!

When my fiancé and I decided to take a trip to Toronto I’m not gonna lie, I googled the places that Meghan Markle used to frequent when she lived there. Fresh stood out to me right away because the food looked amazing AND since they have a plant based menu my vegan husband to be could literally eat anything there. We went on our last night of the trip and it did not disappoint! Not only were the drinks and food outstanding (best margaritas we have ever had) but the service was A+. Our waitress was super friendly and gave us great suggestions plus her honest opinion on what to get. I suggest getting the Buffalo Cauliflower, trust me - you will wanna thank me personally. The decor was super cute and I just wish there was one back home in Philly so we could go all the time!

Great, varied plant based menu. Goddess bowl was good but could have used more sauce/chili oil. Fried cauliflower crisp and flavorful. Loved the ginger/lemon hot drink. Quite loud in the dining room, acoustics not great. Friendly, helpful staff. Would dine here again.

my seven year old vegetarian child chose Fresh on Front for his birthday dinner and it did not disappoint! We’ve been here many times and the food is always consistent in quality, freshness and deliciousness! This is our favourite place!

Loved the space, decor and furniture! Food looked beautiful but was surprisingly bland. I had the Buddha bowl and it wasn't as flavorful as I expected. The tofu had a lemony taste that I didn't particularly link. But over the dish was healthy!

I really liked the setup of the washrooms, the ethical plant based menu, the adult atmosphere but family friendly attitude and reception.

We love Fresh! We especially love the Front St. location for it's lush ambiance and ability to reserve so we can share beautiful plant based (and gluten free) experiences with friends, family and colleagues.

Fresh as always served great food in a timely manner. Our server was awesome because, I took my Aunt there for lunch so Fresh was nice enough to provide a lit Birthday candle with her meal. Looking forward to returning some time soon. Thanks.

We waited an hour for our food before our server went to check on it. The kitchen didn’t have a record of the order and did very little to compensate for it.

Service was well-timed and friendly. Pleasantly surprised by the nachos as well as the cobb salad as it was my first time trying those items. Definitely gave me the confidence to try more items on the menu.

Having visited other locations, I was disappointed that this, the newest and largest location was very lacking in terms of menu options. The drink, alcohol and smoothie menus are large comprehensive lists. But meal options were small - only 3 burgers, only 3 burritos (and the normal variety of bowl, sides and appetizers).

Despite this, our food was very good, we got the buffalo cauliflower, quinoa onion rings, 9 layer burrito and bacon chipotle burger. All very filling and delicious (but the 'bacon' was just OK)

Fresh is fantastic. Healthy. Hearty. Nutritious. The wine was great on 1/2 bottle Wednesday. The food was delicious as always. However I did not appreciate the long wait for our food.

The place was beautiful with the decorative floor and nice chairs and benches.
The food was alright but it was room temperature - it was not warm. However, the
Powerhouse Bowl was still delicious.
I found the waiters and waitresses very friendly which was very important when greeting customers.
I was pleased that the washrooms was accessible, however it is preferable to have separate washrooms - one for male and another one for female. When entering FRESH restaurant, it was not accessible as there was no railing. There were a few stairs but I needed help and one waiter helps me which was nice.
My boyfriend found the restaurant too noisy. Also, the restaurant was a bit too dim.
Overall, I rated the restaurant 4 stars.

The Beyond Burger was almost not eatable as it was FAR to saucy & messy - Way too much sauce!!
The music and overall noise level - deafening.
Even after expressing my concerns regarding the Burger, the server did nothing.

Really disappointed this visit to fresh. I have been coming here a lot recently and trying to expand my friends to plant powered food.
Our experience today was terrible. The server seemed like he could have cared less about us.

I ordered a drink that was forgotten, then brought the wrong drink, after 15 minutes I was given the right drink.
My food order was not what I had asked for either so the server did not care to add the modification. In my case it wasn’t serious but if it were an allergy that carelessness can cause serious health issues.

Coming from someone who has worked in the service industry 8+ years, I was really disappointed at the lack of service even when a very empty dining room.

My friend was there for the first time and mentioned she wouldn’t be returning due to the lack of service or even compassion when an order was forgotten and brought out wrong.
Watching staff standing around chit chatting while we are trying to get the attention of any staff is not a great look.

The new location is beautiful and the food is good. However the service was poor. It was my sisters birthday and I asked if we could order a dessert before to surprise her with. The hostess said no problem. We had our whole meal and the waitress asked if we wanted dessert. I think went to ask the hostess if the birthday dessert was coming. He said yes, when I got back to my seat the bill was there but no dessert. The waitress then brought out the dessert, and a new bill adding the dessert that was forgotten 😒

Went to celebrate my son’s birthday which I wrote on open table reservation Our table was ready and great. I’d a,so mentioned gluten allergy with reservation and to waiter and my son’s peanut allergy but the waiter didn’t really apply our concerns. The birthday donut came which was nice but no happy birthday whatsoever lol. Very odd. I’ve witnessed much better at other Fresh locations. The food is always good there but a little pricey with all the addons.

I have been frequenting Fresh for years and have always loved it but today I was really disappointed. Our waitress was lovely and did her job very well but the food was really subpar and not what I’ve come to expect from Fresh. Our “full breakfast “ was served lukewarm and the scrambled tofu was watery and lacklustre. My disappointment was amplified as we were celebrating my granddaughters 25th birthday and it just started our day out together on an unfortunate note.

Not sure if I would recommend. The last two times we have been there our food took a very long time, over 40 min. And my last visit my food had to go back as it was cold. It has definitely taken a down turn since when it first opened.

The new menu has terrible small portions. They charged us for dipping sauce that we never ordered. The food took over 35 mins even though the restaurant was half empty. When the food did come, they had forgotten to put the "power greens" in the "power salad" and both our salads did not have the dressing on them. So we wait again. The manager wasn't of much help either. The server was a nice lady but nobody would take ownership of the problem. This experience truly sucked. We have been patrons of Fresh for over a decade but aren't going to go back to this "new" place unless they can fix this nightmare of an experience and the poor quality of food in their new menu.
