Tasty and Fresh with a Relaxing Atmosphere

Cafe Fresco is a great restaurant if you are looking for fresh and unique deli-style menu items. They have a large menu with counter service and the atmosphere is very cozy. The high quality ingredients taste very fresh and homemade. It reminds me of a Panera Bread restaurant, but with a much... read more

if you want a slow meal this is not the place. food was good and came as we wanted it. I would go back again but not for a couples meals. It is more lunch style without table service.

Cafeteria style service- order and pay at the end of the line. Modern, “California style” look. Kinda romantic, a nice place for couples I think. If it is crowded, there is a rather large room in the back too. They have an interesting selection of sandwiches and wraps and interesting pizza styles while offering quite a few healthy choices. I... More

Decent place to hang for a while with friends - free WIFI. Please needs an overhaul in terms of décor - but solid meal.

The food is quick, the service quick and free wifi to boot! Instead of going to some of the higher priced coffee shops this is a great place to start the day. I usually visit for breakfast and there is a variety of choices, from oatmeal, to fresh fruit, egg sandwiches, and bagels or yogurt. They also have a great... More

I met a colleague here for a brief morning meeting and found it to be nice, with good food and service although the music was a bit loud for a normal business conversation. I've had dinner here in the past and have found their menu quite good and the food tasty. This is a nice spot to meet in the... More

A cool, modern cafe featuring sandwiches and pizza. You place the order at the counter and eat at a table or booth. Decor is light and airy, the lighting is pleasant and relaxing. Good food for casual dining

Our order was incorrect but decided to keep the breakfast they dished up. It was an average experience.

I eat a Cafe Fresco, Paxton St., on a daily basis. Great food, and fast. The only drawback may be price.

This is the type of restaurant where you walk in, look at the menus hung above the counter, and then walk down to the register to order. It has a cool funky appearance -- we were looking forward to a nice meal. We arrived at about 4 pm on a Friday -- it was not busy. Since we'd never been... More
