“Great experience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2011

This was my second visit to Fresco's and the food, atmosphere and service were all great. I had the Crab Cakes and they were served over fresh greens and a fruit salsa so the dish was light and 'just enough' for a late night dinner. The server stopped by several times to check on our table which was much appreciated. He was a young gentlemen who was very polished and dressed very professionally. I would definitely recommend Fresco's to my friends and family.

“Absolutely wonderful!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 7, 2011

I stopped in for breakfast and was so impressed with the food and the staff that I went back a couple of days later for lunch. The fresh fruit is excellent, ripe and sweet and a good variety. Lunch was beef vegetable soup and (a large) half of a crab cake sandwich with peach chipotle salsa. I took a sampler of desserts and pastries to friends who raved about it and got another for other friends at home. Everything is cooked to order so if you have dietary restrictions, you will never have a problem here. The pastries and desserts look heavenly. Staff and owner are courteous and friendly.

Prices are very reasonaable, especially considering the quality of the food. Omelets run $6-$8. there are four kinds of benedicts ($8-$10), breakfast sandwiches and burritos, pancakes and French toastgranola, sandwiches ($7-$9), paninis, wraps, stuffed baked potatoes ($3-$6), salads, four or five varieties of mac and cheese, and daily specials as well.

You can eat in or take food out, but definitely enjoy their food. It is excellent!

“Fantastic Sandwich Shop”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2010

I stopped here on a trip recently and had a wonderful lunch. I was prompted to send the name of the restaurant to Trip Advisor because it wasn't even listed as an option. This place has a great atmosphere, really friendly service and outstanding food. The price was reasonable and I would highly recommend it to anyone!
