Really Good Healthy Place

Big Fresh is a restaurant that gives you very healthy food for a very cheap price. When you get the fish, you won't believe how good it is. Love the Falafel balls!

We dug out between snowstorms and decided to eat out before food shopping. The cafe is small and cozy. You order at the register (there are a number of signs saying ORDER HERE) and pay then. We sat down and our food arrived at the counter shortly thereafter. I had the spicy peanut noodle stir-fry with chicken (other options are... More

I can only speak to the falafel wrap - it's so good, I can't get myself to order anything else. The menu looks great, with fish, chicken, and vegetarian options. The falafel wrap is outstanding.

If you want fish or vegetarian food this is a great little cafe or take out place! Falafel is great and so is the peanut salmon and the salads are great too!

The food at Big Fresh Cafe is really fresh and healthy, cooked to order while you wait. The vibe is very idealistic and New Age. The food is locally sourced, and as healthy as they can make it. It tastes really good, too. You can get a big, healthy, delicious dinner for eight or ten dollars and feel virtuous.

We have been here several times and the food is always consistent and fresh. Most of the items I have tried are tasty. There is pasta with chicken meatballs for the kids and the portion is generous enough to split if you have very young kids. I would recommend as a nice family option.

After reading the reviews on this site, we went here hoping for something different. I ordered the spicy peanut noodle stir fry and it wasn't spicy in the least. The mango black tea had no mango flavor at all to my taste. They seem to make a big deal about being environmentally friendly, but serve huge portions that most people... More

Place to take a group, each of whom wants a different cuisine. I had the tempeh special which was more the texture and taste of a bean loaf, bland and cut into logs. The curry sauce was very mild and a little too sweet. The tempeh was on a big bed of brown rice and garnished with sauteed red onions... More

I had wrap there and it was pretty good. They do not use sea salt which is important factor for me. It was fresh but it is average. Not so extraordinary.

A very varied menu with all kinds of Middle Eastern, Thai and other dishes all seemingly made with the freshest ingredients. So far, I have stuck to the falafel wrap which is the best I've had in decades. Great for lunch. Lively, dynamic and the food has so much vitality to it with lots of veggies. Very casual but efficiently... More
