Can't wait to go back!

I was very impressed with the creative menus (food and drink), and the restaurant itself is comfortable and friendly. The scrambled tofu is delicious!

A great venue - plenty of activity, middle of town, Chopper Reid was there - always entertainers around, a very busy busy place - so if you are culturally acceptable to being shoulder rubbed it would not be an issue - we preferr4ed a quieter place - but hey, the entertainment was awesome

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.

Very disappointing. Small menu, tiny meals for quiet an expensive price. The service was somewhat exaggerated and over the top. Sadly we won't be going back.

We had breakfast at this restaurant. At the time of writing this review they were renovating the dining room for evening meals. The breakfast was DELICIOUS, the coffee great, the furnishings quirky and the service excellent. YUMMY.
