Great place for a healty lunch/dinner

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... read 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.

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.
