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.

I have been to Cafe Fresh many times and always enjoy the food, service and cleanliness, but I went one day and the noise was to much, I walked out with a migraine... I love the atmosphere except for the noise due to the high ceilings without baffles! Cafe Fresh is a great place, and I love to meet family... More

We tried this restaurant for lunch on our last trip to moline on a suggestion from a friend. Food was delicious and we were really glad we went. It was such a great departure from the fried foods offered at many Quad Cities restaurants. They have many gluten free and dairy free options. Overall food was fresh and tasty.

The fresh healthy options are a tasty worthwhile choice far from the usual boring sandwiches! Both salad and soup choices are great options as well as the wrap and pita selections. Appetizers also worth trying. The service was courteous, fast and efficient. Although it's always nice to stay longer you can be sure there is more than enough time to... More

I travel to Moline for business and am always looking for a healthier alternative to the chain and fast food restaurants around. Eating healthy on a business trip seemed like an unattainable goals. So glad I stumbled on Cafe Fresh. I dined alone for lunch the first time, and retuned a couple of days later for lunch with a co-worker.... More
