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.

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.

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.

Our food came quickly and our waitress was very helpful and on top of our order. Food was fresh and delicious...the chocolate fudge cake was fabulous! Plan to go back again and try something else.

I really enjoyed going to Fresh on Front. I found that my Cobb salad was a bit too salty for me by the end but I would definitely go back and try another dish.

I am not vegan, but I love the food at Fresh. As the name implies the food is clean, fresh and most important, delicious! We started with their quinoa onion rings, then I had the cheeseburger with salad with their new lemon dressing. We ended the meal with the lemon cake and coffee. A perfect dinner.

The restaurant is absolutely beautiful and our server was excellent.

What a great place to eat - did I say that I love this place :-)

Our food took about an hour to come. The manager came over to apologize and said that the steamer wasn’t working, but it was fairly clear based on everyone round us getting their orders that really our server forgot to put our order in. Our bill was not discounted at all for the inconvenience.

I love the location and the look of this Fresh. The food was excellent as always at any Fresh location. Our server was incredible. She had great suggestions and was prompt. She checked on us enough that we knew she was around, but not so much that we couldn't have a conversation.

Beautiful restaurant, with both dine-in and takeout options. Gets pretty busy for dinner, a reservation is definitely the better option. The servers are nice, however take long with taking orders and with bringing out the food. Menu has lots of options, but is on the pricier side of casual eats. Overall the experience is great, and I would definitely come back many more times. Would love to try the weekend brunch menu.

Ordered new avocado on toast. Bread was too thick and not really toasted. Could have been two smaller slices and toasted through- would have been a better eating experience.

It was a good experience. However, 3 or 4 of the items we went to the restaurant to try were all out which was slightly disappointing. The food we ordered instead was great. We had gone to the restaurant to try a few specific dishes highly recommended by friends therefore it was a bit of a let down for them to be out of those items.

Had a great Mother's day lunch with my husband and kids. We love Fresh and when we moved north of the city it was one of the things we missed most. We had some old favs and tried some new menu items. My toddler LOVES the crispy tofu steaks and when they arrived she said "I'm so happy" which about sums up my feelings as well. Also the little mother's day succulent gift is such a cute idea! Thanks.

The service was poor. The kitchen was busy and we had to wait a long time for our main course. When our meals arrived, one of party did not receive his meal. Our waitress was MIA and when she finally came to the table (when we waived her down), it was apparent that she messed up one order. By the time that person got his main course, some of us were already finished with ours. Again, our waitress was MIA. I suppose we should have known when we placed our order for appetizers, she did not know the dipping sauce we asked for until we pointed it out on the menu. We were a party of 6 and spent just over $250. This was disappointing because we really enjoy the food but the service was bad.

The noise was almost unbearable. In addition, there was very unnecessary recorded music that could barely be heard over the din. We were there for a couple of hours, and by 2:00 the noise had lessened. I don't know what to suggest, but we were unable to have a conversation, which kind of spoiled the rest of the experience. Food was pretty good, as usual, and it's very expensive. I would recommend Fresh because of the delicious vegan food, but only to people who don't care about conversation. Service was excellent.
