Finally we grabbed lunch, and then a few nights later dinner at a different location, and both were highly enjoyable.

Fresh has four locations in Toronto. It is a fantastic restaurant for quality vegetarian food. The menu is huge! They have a wonderful selection of appetizers, soup of the day, salads, entrees and desserts. If you like onion rings, they have the tastiest ones in the city!! They also have a 32 ingredient hot sauce goes amazingly with the onion... More

Now it's almost a tradition to meet friends and enjoy a veg meal at Fresh whenever I'm in town. Love the fast, friendly service and delicious food. This time we had an early dinner and the place was not too busy and gratefully fairly quiet.

My first vegan experience was sadly my last. The burger was monstrous and promising but it failed miserably on taste. The mayo was ghastly. You have to really WANT this stuff. Its definitely and acquired taste.

Without a doubt Fresh restaurants are my absolute favourite (vegan) place to eat in the city. A few things to note... -no they don't take reservations -I have never ever sent back my food because of any sort of dissatisfaction. I have always been 110% satisfied. -Their 'house' hot sauce is so great! I even bought the cook book so... More

Huge selection--most also vegan. Even if you're not a vegetarian you'll find something you'll enjoy. Everything we had was fantastic. Place was really hopping. Nice outdoor patio on side--not on Queen.

I've been coming to Fresh on Queen West for years, I'm not vegan or even vegetarian but it's always been a refreshing alternative for me. Here's the problem: the sizes of the drinks especially those touted to be 16 oz are JUST NO WAY THE SIZE THEY SAY THEY ARE. I've just started dealing with a paper cup supplier and... More

When you finally get invited to Fresh for dinner, be sure you ask specifically, "Which one?" because I learned the hard way there are four of these restaurants. They started out as a juicing shop, I believe, and evolved into these four locations - all of which I imagine have amazing an vegetarian/vegan/gluten free/raw food menu. A great deal of... More

My vegan daughter dragged me into this popular Queen St West eatery. Let me set the scene: alt looking servers, tats eight ways to sunday, hipsters everywhere, health minded families including a large East Indian multi generational family, couples on dates, girls out for fun and a dog snugged up on the outside of the barrier to the patio.

This location of the chain is less noisy and not as crowded as their other locations. The food is consistently fresh, and totally vegetarian. I find the prices are very reasonable. And the service is always great. It's my default restaurant.

Staying in North End

Neighborhood Profile
North End
The North End is a nucleus of specialty food restaurants and shops, especially around its Mount Pleasant Village area. Frequented by antiquers for its numerous collectable shops, furniture spots, and oddity stores, the North End is a maverick of the quaint and quality. Vintage toy stores, accessory shops, and cinemas welcome perusers to step back in time, while the wide pedestrian squares and the large medical and business community inject it with a dose of modernity. With numerous cafes and Toronto's greatest number of independent booksellers, it isn't uncommon to see folks in this area at their leisure, reading outdoors and in eateries, and taking life a bit more slowly – even if it's only during their lunch break.
