Good light food

Good, inexpensive good...not amazing, just healthy and relatively cheap. They're in a good neighborhood and across from the Moscone Center--an easy walk.

This is an awesome place for a quick bite to eat. They serve Vietnamese spring rolls, bowls, and sandwiches. I had the spring rolls - lemongrass pork and crispy tofu with the standard fillings. The lychee ice tea was good too. It's similar to ordering at Subway. You stand in line and place your order and watch them make it.... More

I wish all of my experience in San Fran have been like mine at Freshroll. The line was very long (it was a Sat lunch), but it was worth it. I got the lemon grass pork on a sandwich. The girl who made my sandwich was very nice and had a smile on her face. She hooked me up with... More

This is a place for light but healthy meals or after lunch before dinner snacking. Make the rolls according to your choices and the sauces are great to go with the rolls. Try the rice paper instead of the breads. Sitting is sparse so it is basically a to go joint rather than sit and dine.

We loved our lunch here! Plenty of options for people to customize their meals. We would eat here regularly if we lived in SF. The only issue is the extremely long line at lunch hour (that's the reason they get 4 stars instead of 5).

I love Pho and fresh roll does a great job. Their spring rolls are great as well and the portions are generously sized. My only complaint is that they haven't figured out how to serve the food quickly. It routinely takes 10+ minutes after my order is placed, to get my Pho - all of which is already pre-made.

I had lunch here recently while at an event at the nearby Moscone Center. There was a decent line, which made me think it must be okay. It took me a minute or two to fully understand the Chipotle-esque ordering system, I ended up going with the spring rolls (even though I normally prefer pho) because I was getting it... More

I, too, visited Freshroll based on other reviews raving about this place. I love Vietnamese food, and almost always get a bowl of vermicelli with grilled pork. So I went for lunch this weekend after the car show, around 12:30pm, looking forward to trying out a new place. For me, it did not really live up to the hype. There... More

Staying in SoMa

Neighborhood Profile
SoMa
South of Market (SoMa), has an urban and sophisticated vibe, but you're more likely to find big nightclubs and lots of industrial loft residences than you are to find boutique shopping. Although it’s the epicenter for tech startups in the city, visitors will be able to do more than just business - museums, top quality restaurants, and the San Francisco Giants now call this neighborhood home. Most of its freeway-sized streets may not capture the same character as other neighborhoods in the city, but pockets of charm, like South Park, can still be found throughout its side streets.
