Very Attentive Service

My second visit and met a friend who was in a wheelchair. It was busy. When I had been before, later in the day, it was not nearly so packed. But, a table came up which suited her for being accessible. I sort of bravely took off my coat and left my coat on a chair and backpack with everything... read more

This is not a table service place but one where you line up at a counter to order, watch your order made, pay for it and then grab a table. The variety was great. A wide choice is available in the types of bread, from things like jalapeno-cheddar to pretzel bread and much in between. Many meat choices, vegetarian choices... More

I really like this place. The quality if the food is just as you expect.....very fresh and very tasty! A little pricey but you definitely get what you pay for. The staff are very friendly and the atmosphere is very relaxed. Definitely recommend!

I rarely write a negative review, as I believe in brining it to the establishments attention to allow them to rectify the situation or experience. I showed the staff my sandwich and I did not get offered to have the sandwich remade or return my money as I barely ate the food. I am all for supporting local business vs... More

Great spot for lunch. Food is fresh and well prepared on a daily basis. Sandwiches are huge and the soups are flavourful. Although I don't eat desserts the cookies look yummy! Food t the Welham street location is just as good.

Passing through on our way up north on thanksgiving weekend Decided to stop to get a quick bite to eat. 4 of us in our travelling party. We all got something different and we are all very happy with the quality of service and the quality of the food. The cauliflower cheese soup was the best I have ever tasted... More

The only negative I can say, as an European, that there are too many choices and far too many questions. Great deli with wonderful sandwiches, my personal favorite beeing the breadless sandwich. Great, light lunch stuff!

Not ne.ar the size it was...same price tho. And no sparkling water in the cooler...just a whole different vibe in there. Apparently we are not the... More

Really good food! A little over priced in my opinion for a sandwich, but I like to slurge and go here once in a while

Fresh-a-Fare on Bayfield in Barrie is my new, and now ONLY go-to place for the best salad EVER! I have a very special salad (as I am very particular about my salads!) that has become affectionately know as the "Tina Special". It is a wonderful mix of greens with a plethora of additions like turkey, egg and other proteins, as... More
