Lunch spot

Cafe Fresh offers a large variety of food items. They have a convenient pick 2 menu for 1/2 of a wrap or sandwich or salad. Delicious mini cup cakes tempt customers to stay for dessert. The room is large, which makes it somewhat noisy when it is busy. Friendly staff!

When we first arrived at Cafe Fresh there were 2 negatives right off the bat. (We almost left.) First, the place was freezing! Like ice box cold. Second, they stuck us at the table in the far back corner directly in front of the doors to the kitchen even though half the place was empty. Who wants to sit facing... More

Nice place for a great lunch/dinner. Lunch time during the week can be busy and nosy. Acoustics in the place are lacking. Not for a business conversation as you might not be able to hear each other. They do not take reservations so arrive early. There is a nice selection of yummy desserts. They do have a lounge that is... More

Everything we had was good. I ordered a "pick two" with fruity chicken salad & tortilla soup. My husband had the steak nachos. We both had iced tea. We shared it all & was completely full when we finished. Waitress was very nice and did a great job serving us. Their menu has a lot of choices and it was... More

A hip and modern cafe serving a full bar and lunch sandwiches and salads. We each did the $9 pick 2 for lunch. The skinny salad and wrap is a very tasty veggie treat. Try the chicken enchilada soup which is great. Vanilla bean frappe is excellent.

The food is good, and fresh, but the noise level is unbareable. You can't hear the people you are sitting with. Holding a conversation is almost impossible. Not good if it's a business lunch you are trying to conduct. If they could do something about the noise, my rating would go up.

I truly enjoy local and organic food, with that being said, it was a little overpriced for what you got. Food was good, but definitely not somewhere I would frequent often, except for meeting a friend for lunch.

Great tip from TripAdvisor to visit Cafe Fresh. We were travelling through Moline (nice city) and thought we would try this highly rated spot. Bottom line is excellent food, friendly service, pleasant atmosphere. Only minor complaint is noise. Highly recommended!!

The food is okay, but less interesting after a couple of visits. It's always too cold and too noisy inside. The wait staff is helpful, however.
