Yummy lunch

We stopped here after hiking and had a great lunch. The yellow split pea soup was perfect. So was the egg, ham, and cheese croissant (big!) and the Thai chicken salad had freshly cooked warm chicken on it. We will definitely be back.

Ok, it's the only option open late in town for wifi and it's a fun place to run into friends, but this place is so noisy! I wish they would add some better food, tone down the harsh lighting and find a way to make the acoustics better. But maybe that's the point? Make it so unappealing you don't want... More

This is my go to place before the movies. It's quick, easy, and has pretty good food. Its not anything overly special but has your basic Mediterranean food as well as bagels, pastries, and cookies. It has a very coffeshop-like atmosphere.

I love this little restaurant. The staff is super friendly & the food is good. I almost always order the Fatoosh salad - my favorite!

Fair Fix is a unique place. You can get great espresso drinks, exotic teas, Mediterranean comfort foods and bagels. The funky, relaxed atmosphere creates an environment where anyone can feel comfortable. I dropped in for three hours most evenings while writing my masters thesis. I found the energy and hum of the place inspirational.

This is my go-to place if I know I want good food and done want to risk it trying something new that I may or may not like. The hummus plate, Mediterranean plate and falafel plate are all really good choices. The atmosphere is coffee house style.

OK, I really like the Fairfix and I come about every other week. First of all: the staff here actually know how to make a proper cappucino. That means a lot. I usually get salads or the Mediterranean Plate when I come here, and I have been happy with them. They are good and substantial. It isn't the sort of... More

I tried this place based on the yelp recommendations but went wrong with the African veggies, I think it was. I should have sent it back. Mushy, microwaved veggies on couscous. But the corn soup was good. The ambiance and service leave a lot to be desired. Maybe it would have been better if I went with falafel or a... More
