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

On our way out of the area we choose to not eat our free hotel breakfast. We drove by the café everyday so we decided to stop. It was a nice place to eat and they had good coffee. I only wished we stopped there before hand. The lunch menu looked awesome.

It's no longer on the menu, but you can still get a tuna melt here. I highly recommend it. It comes with fries, and it is just ridiculously tasty, and the fries are exemplary. Pizzas are good here too, as are the salads, though since I discovered the tuna melt, I haven't really been ordering salads. Coffee is from La... More

My friend introduced me to Cafe Fresco for the first time, and I believe I'm hooked! I work down the road, so I am familiar with it, but have never tried it myself. I ordered a bbq chicken salad, and while it looked a little weird when it came out, it was VERY good! They do charge $75 for a... More

You can't go wrong with any of the selections here. My favorites are the salads made with unbelieveably fresh veggies. The portions are generous and everything is beautifully presented. The staff is so friendly and you can visit with friends with no pressure to leave.
