We went for the first weekend they've been open for dinner, was a nice & healthy meal. Lots of vegan and gluten free options, staff were able to chop and change where needed and very accommodating to dietary requirements. Staff were attentive and knowledgeable which really added to the experience. Cool and relaxed atmosphere...would definitely go there again.

We stopped here for a brunch whilst visiting Launceston and we weren't disappointed! Menu included delicious vegetarian and vegan options and the blueberry smoothie was so yum! Service staff were friendly and the wait wasn't long at all. Def recommend a visit!

After having breakfast at what is best in Tasmania according to Lonely Planet guide (Laneway café Devonport) we next tried Fresh on Charles. Food is very good. Would definitely recommend. Only comment is a bit pricey but don't mind for good food

Lovely unusual food combinations made up the choice on the menu. My son is a vegan and I don't eat red meat, chicken or cheese. If you are in this category you will definitely be able to find something truly delicious in this restaurant. This restuarant is named "Fresh" and the food is fresh, beautifully presented, ever so tasty and... More

Eat the mushroom quinoa burger. Just do it! They also do great birthday parties in their back room and host Fresh Comedy and support local acts. Friendly staff. Good vibes. They also have accommodation upstairs.

My brother Rod took me to Fresh recently for lunch, I was a little bit skeptical as i thought I was about get the new age hippy rabbit food/garnish treatment and then leave and have to go and get a pub meal, but how wrong I was, yes it was Vegan and very healthy but more important (for me anyway)...

What's not to love? Cute cafe with great music, lovely staff, easy location with a pretty view of the square, coffee made to perfection and delicious food!!! If this were the Olympics, this chefs poached eggs would win GOLD hands down.
