Fantastic food made with love.

This is such a healthy, refreshing alternative to fast food! At Big Fresh, you get healthy food -- fast. Try the chicken plate with the tahini. Utterly delicious. The salads are big and fresh, and the lentil soup is to die for -- not the usual added sodium. Such a wonderful place.

If you are looking for a leisurely lunch or dinner this is not the place for you. But if you want a good quick made-to-order lunch or dinner Big Fresh is definitely worth it. It's great for take out. I've tried a few menu items including a vegetable stir-fry with noodles (you can also get it over rice) and a... More

The hummus is the best around, chicken stir fry amazing with a choice of rice to make it gluten free, cod cakes on greens with dill sauce is my personal favorite:) have tried almost everything on the menu and everything is healthy and tastes great:) don't...

I got the Mediterranean Chicken Plate. Yummy. Lots of thin sliced bite-sized chicken in a slightly spicy tomato sauce w/ raisins. Every bite from beginning to end was wonderful. The entree comes with the best hummus I've ever had. I had the Moroccan Mint tea. Fabulous. I wish I lived near the restaurant. I'd eat there frequently.

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.
