Fresh meals prepared with so much care!

Fraser's does not disappoint! Fresh, seasonal and mostly local refined comfort foods. My meals always feel like they were put together with such attention to detail and such care. Great atmosphere - a touch above casual but definitely not pretentious. Always a great time!

Whether it's weekend brunch or dinner with a friend, Fraser Cafe is a favourite. My daughter and I often go and just love the delicious charcuterie, imaginative fresh salads and so yummy mains. The brunch menu is really special: They make eggs an orgiastic experience I am not kidding. Please never leave my dear Fraser brothers!

Have been for lunch several times and supper a couple. Only caveat is that it is an old house and therefore conversation can be difficult with noise reverberating. if I was being executed tomorrow, would be eating their smoked trout tonight! It is my favorite thing, but all food delicately and tastefully prepared and presented. service friendly and while not... More

We had an enjoyable dinner for a larger group at their "Table 40" private function room. The service was friendly and the food was good. (The beef tenderloin was outstanding). The acoustics are however quite hard in the room, and is was a bit difficult for us to find parking for our car.

Attended a business dinner in their private room "Table 40." It is a great place to have a business dinner since it's quite private and have large screens to see presentations. The staff was extremely friendly. The food was good and the service was just slow. If invited to have dinner there again, I'll definitively try it again.

Last night we went for dinner. The service was very attentive but not intrusive. The sidestripe shrimp was amazing! The steak was incredible and my surprise chef's meal was delicious. Will definitely be back. Highly recommended! Only minor negative thing we can think of was the sour dough bread was a little dry.
