This establishment on Spadina is part of a small local chain and offers great healthy food. The service is very good, the prices are decent and the food is very tasty. The environs are a little small for the level of business that they often have but it is still worth squeezing in. My colleague had been to this place... More

This was my fourth time here but the first time in about 2.5 years. The restaurant is well maintained and staff are knowledgeable and friendly. The food is consistently good and well presented. I've tried multiple restaurants in Toronto but when I'm visiting, I always like going to Fresh.

Fresh is a great place to go on the weekend. The menu provides the option of ordering a delicious breakfast or diving into lunch which is great to meet the taste buds of everyone in your group. Recently we enjoyed the newer menu and look forward to heading back to sample some more 'soon to be favourites' like quinoa onion... More

I loved everything at Fresh. The veggie bowls on a bed of soba noodles, the smoothies, the delicious soups, the healthy wraps and the tantalizing desserts, especially the chocolate cake, the vanilla cupcake and the cookies. All vegan and like homemade. Perfect! The cafe is also very good. Only downsides are the limited space and noise plus long time to... More

Always on my list when I visit Toronto. In a sea of bad food choices and nutritionally deficient food, Fresh always offers interesting, tasty and nutritionally dense dishes. If you have any food sensitivities or allergies or just need to get some good nutrition into you, put Fresh on your list for a visit. My favourite thing here is the... More

It’s a cozy little restaurant. The staff is very friendly and attentive. The food is really tasty, healthy and there are a lot of choices in the menu whether you’re vegetarian or not. My mom had the special, deep fried oyster mushroom panini, and she really liked it although she’s not vegetarian. I had the Energy bowl and really enjoyed... More

I have been to Fresh on Spadina a number of times and have always had a lovely lunch or dinner. My go-to order is the Beach Bowl (full size). This little number has 2 cups of brown rice, sweet potatoes, alfalfa sprouts, avocado, grilled red pepper sundried tomato and zucchini. I always add goat's cheese on mine as an extra.... More

Neat little place. I hade gluten free banana pancakes. So good. Everything is simple fresh and unique. My daughter had a wrap with fried squash that she loved. Will be back again.

I love this place and come back on every trip to Toronto! I just wish there was one in Victoria! I went with a carnivore friend and she loved it too! I wish I could try new things but I don't want to miss the black bean burrito which I love so much! We shared yam fries with miso gravy... More
