Addicted to broccolini on pita

For years, I have loved going to lunch here. I was absolutely stuck on the broccolini pita with white bean spread. Yum! So fresh and filling. I broke out of my routine yesterday and ordered a veggie burger made of white beans, avocado and sweet potatoes. It is my new fave. I don't think you... read more

I don't live in Richmond but I try to visit this spot whenever I come to town cause it's so damn good!! I'm consistently blown away by flavors, creative menu, and superb quality with the owner Jenna in-house every time I've visited! On sunny days the patio on Cary is unbeatable !!! Thanks Jenna for your tasty vibes!!

Fresca is all vegetarian. Some dishes are quite good. The white bean brocolleti is great. I've been disappointed by the salads. They make all of their pitas and bread fresh which is nice but it likely slows orders down. I would frequent Fresca for lunch more often but it's small and can require an unpredictable wait. Try it if you... More

Lovely place for Lunch(I don't think they are open for dinner). Loved everything they serve. Their seitan based dishes are delicious. Some great dishes to try are deviled eggs(vegan), vegetarian chili and seitan tacos.

A small vegetarian café open only for lunch. The food is very solid and there is a good variety to choose from.

I am not a vegetarian or vegan, but this restaurant never disappoints! Everything I have had here has been delicious, and the owner and her staff are awesome. If you are looking for a great vegetarian meal, then you absolutely have to try FRESCA. They make the best pita ever, and the Greek salad pizza is a must have!! It... More

I've eaten at Fresca many times. It has always been outstanding. The tomato sandwich with wasabi mayo on warm, just cooked pita is to die for. Or better yet, I can't believe food that's this well made and good for you can taste so good. If I could only eat at one restaurant for the rest of my days, this... More

It's vegetarian all the way. We did lunch here in deference to my vegan son. Their whole wheat pita bread is fresh. Try the Greek salad sandwich on the pita. The vegetarian tacos were very good. Several different types and you can mix types. They served Coke, but no Diet Coke. :/

Really good veggie restaurant in downtown Richmond. There were plenty of choices to satisfy everyone in our group. Many of the dishes were creative, and were fusion cuisines. Everything we ordered tasted great. Will definitely come here again when we visit Richmond. I would highly recommend the curried vegetables taco, and pesto panini.
