Fun place to have dinner

Great menu, great service and very friendly staff. The soups are very good as well as the sandwiches. Would recommend.

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

We started off with the blackened tuna, and it was fantastic. The Cuban, burgers, and tuna melt were all delicious. Only thing I would change about the restaurant would be to up the craft beers they serve. Overall fantastic experience and we'll be visiting often !

Normally I am more of a meat n potatoes type of guy but this place was great. everything explodes with fresh flavor. I had their fish tacos, ( 3 to the order ) a pan seared tilapia with a yummy slaw. The guacamole side was fresh made also unique with flavor. She had the chicken breast sandwich with sprouts, avocado,... More

I've been a frequent diner at Cafe Fresh since they opened in this location. The food is always tasty and service attentive but the order to table cycle time is slow and the place is almost too noisy to carry on a conversation.

I can see why this got good reviews. I went with a group of 7 for lunch and they all love it. I got the blackened tuna and it was fantastic! Very clean place too. The bar area is cool.

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!
