Endless innovative dining options. Burgers, sammichs, mussels, salads, crêpes, brunch - but best of FRITES! 25 sauces - ketchup is a kopout !

If mussels and fries are your thing, Frjtz is the place to get your fix. The mussels are prepared any one of a dozen ways (my choice is Arles, with white wine, onion and parsley). The fries are perfect, twice fried and served in a paper cone in a tall milk shake glass. On the side is any one of... More

Just had a great Saturday lunch at Frjtz and recommend it to visitors and locals. The steamed mussels are fantastic, served with bread to soak up every drop of the tasty broth. Even if you don't consider yourself a French fry lover, the frites here are pretty special, and come with your choice of dipping sauce. Service is friendly and... More

We had the lunch special and we got an honest and perfectly executed steak. Fair price, nice ambiance, cool decor and the most fun language lesson being played in the bathroom!!

This place is great for getting a warm up bite to eat on the way to the bars in the mission. The food is good and the atmosphere is similar enough to get you into the mood for going out. I had the burger with the fried egg on it and really recommend it. My girlfriend also very much enjoys... More

"Quirky" doesn't begin to describe this place. It's weird, but good weird. The decor is as all over the place as is possible, there is a bed-type lounging area in front of the main window and the bathroom is a trip in itself. Super crazy decor and they were playing a "learn German" instructional tape inside the bathroom when I... More

A co-worker and I decided to have a drink and light eating here. Wasn't a busy time yet when we went here on a Wednesday evening. Food looks all good. I had the burger and it was really tasty. There mollusks were also delicious. Only thing not good about this place, and it matters that it be mentioned, is that... More

For those who miss our dear departed Ti Couz creperie in this neighborhood, get on this one. Good crepes (chicken and mushroom, and another, the Claudel, with apple, cinnamon and whipped cream, were the ones we tried), killer sandwiches (the Sisley, with chicken, avocado, gorgonzola, cheddar, and pears, was great), and, of course, the fries (hence "frjtz"). We tried the... More

We had the Varo salad and Italica mussels and both were wonderful portions. They also had great flavors to boot. Funky place with lots of choices and great employees to help you out.
