It's difficult to find a hip, fun place to go for young professionals in the Quad Cities, so when I tried Cafe Fresh for the first time, I was very excited. The clean, modern layout is reminiscent of some of the loft apartments for the area, and gives you the feeling that you are in a restaurant of a bigger... More

I was in the area visiting family, and tried this place! We ended up eating here a lot while in town! The food is great, and the prices aren't bad either! The kids loved eating their cupcakes after their lunches too!

I have been to Cafe Fresh twice, both during lunch time. I ended up having the same server twice, she remembered me which was nice since it had been a couple of weeks. The mushroom quesadillas were really good so were the nachos. Green salsa is better than the red in my opinion but both are good! I also tried... More

Found Cafe Fresh on a list provided by our hotel...it's so worth going. Reminds me of home with the comfortable, eclectic atmosphere and awesome menu items! Had the BLTA wrap. VERY good. Only here for two more days and I definitely plan to eat here as many times as I can before we leave. Super friendly staff. GET THE CUPCAKES...screw... More

The portions are correct, the food is fresh and different from the typical Moline fare. The atmosphere attracts women which says good things about the service, food and ownership. I have had most of the items of the menu and have been eating here for years. Always a great idea when considering restaurants in downtonw Moline.

Took almost 45 minutes to get our food, pretty sure the order wasn't put in or the cooks screwed up because people that ordered after us were getting their food. What was irritating is that the waitress kept saying she didn't know why and would check on it. Just tell the truth, if you screwed up then own up to... More

Good place for lunch! I had the Skinny Wrap and my husband had the Diablo Flatbread. Food was well prepared; friendly service; and spotless restaurant. Highly recommended.

This was my second visit to Cafe Fresh. The first time was for lunch with co-workers. This time was by myself for supper. It was early in the evening (around 4:30) so it wasn't very busy yet. The person working the counter was incredibly welcoming and chatted for a bit. I ordered chai and an order of their grilled shrimp... More

Cafe Fresh used to be a cozy place to enjoy delicious food and drinks that were reasonably priced. Since they moved to their new location, the prices have gone up considerably. It just doesn't have that cozy atmosphere anymore, and you don't get as good of a value for your money.
