Great food

Really good place for fresh organic foods, it is a bit pricy bit worth it. The inside is very good and the drinks are amazing. Very helpful servers. Good place all around.

If you can't tell my favorite is the BLTG. Bacon lettuce Tomatoe and guacamole! They load this wrap with bacon. First time I came here and had this is the last time I ever looked at a menu as this is all I will get. If it ain't broke don't fix it. Now my family has tried almost everything on... More

I love it here because it's fresh ingredients and always good. I like the chicken tortilla soup and the pickle wraps (most meals come with one or you can order a whole order). Excellent salads and wraps and many other choices.

Saddened to say a lunchtime visit with co-workers took over an hour for mediocre food finally presented to us. At one point waitress even admitted she forgot about our orders :( The restaurant was not even filled so I have no idea what the hold up was. Needless to say I also place an order for take out 2 weeks... More

Was planning on eating at a chain restaurant in the area, place was packed due to a concert in town. Found this wonderful place by chance and so glad I did. I enjoyed a Cuban melt sandwich that was filled with slow roasted pork, grilled ham, bacon, Dijon mustard and guacamole served on a soft fresh Brioche bun. Our waitress... More

Went into the cafe looking for a more homestyle type of food, what was found was more "Trendy" food. That being said, the food was pretty good, not necessarily what was expected, but was alright. The prices were a little outrageous, $12 for a fairly simple sandwich and potato chips.

The tomato soup here is fantastic. Their sandwiches are all good. Love their lemon blueberry marscapone cake. But...it's always so loud in here. Not a good place if you want to chat during lunch.

Visiting the Quad Cities recently with family, we had lunch at Cafe Fresh and were quite pleased with our meals. Unfortunately, the sound level in the restaurant made it very difficult to carry on a conversation. Our waiter even got one sandwich order incorrect (possibly because he couldn't hear us!). Located in a historic building, something should be done to... More

I go here every so often with people from work. I do not love it as much as some others, although I really like the red pepper gouda soup. Aside from this, I think the pricing is a little high and the atmosphere can be kind of weird. The last time we went the lights weren't working so we ate... More
