We are not vegan or even vegetarian but we love to check out this type of restaurant and Fresh on Spadina did not disappoint. The place was hopping at about 1:30 pm when we arrived and there was a bit of a wait. Everyone sat cheek by jowl but they were in a good mood so the vibe was positive.... More

While staying in Toronto for a while on a work project I visited this place quite often. Big menu with lot's of choices. Great Vegan food but not much on the gluten free options and the gluten free wrap is not worth it! The smoothies are amazing, most of the food choices are great but I must say the pancakes... More

This place makes me so happy to be a vegetarian. The quinoa onion rings are off the chart. Literally. The squash tacos are heavenly. And the beach bowl with soba noodles was great. Honestly, Fresh deserves a lot of stars for their cooking. I hear the cookbook gives you the actual recipes, which I will definitely have to get.

This place is a vegetarian's dream, the menu is huge and I can't wait to go back and try other dishes. The noodle/rice bowls and salads are very large and make for a good lunch the next day.

This vegan restaurant had a huge menu and as we were in a rush, the staff member told us which items would come quickly. We had a very tasty platter with humus, vegetables, falafel and avocado with corn bread.

As a non- meat eater who regularly eats Vegan this type of food is very much 'my thing' and I went out of my way to visit Fresh for lunch today. I have to say I was disappointed. Firstly, the service was really quite rubbish. Although the sign says 'Wait for a member of staff to be seated' no one... More

The large fresh bowl is a must if you're super hungry, thankfully I was. Onion rings and spicy Chipotle mayo was excellent as well. Highly recommended this to any veggie/vegan looking for somewhere to eat in Toronto. Wife and her sister were both amazed and appreciative of the large menu of fresh ingredients. I will eat here when I visit... More

Living in England especially 'the north' means vegetarian restaurants are few are far between let alone vegan ones. I had a full food itinerary on our trip around Canada and knew by the time I hit Toronto I would be craving something healthier and little bit more nutritious so I dragged my anti-vegan boyfriend along to Fresh for lunch on...

I love this restaurant. I always make sure I get here, at least once, while I'm in TO. It's very reasonably priced and very filling. The BBQ burger on a wrap with their awesome onion rings is always my order...their soups are pretty awesome too!

Staying in Downtown West

Neighborhood Profile
Downtown West
Downtown West is home to Toronto's gorgeous Inner Harbor, and is a must-visit for lovers of art and the outdoors. The area's rich cultural heritage is celebrated by a number of monuments and museums, giving the neighborhood a mature feel. As a premier destination for modern art, people here stroll through the cool contemporary pieces at the Power Plant, enjoy the outdoor installations along Queen's Quay and Canoe Landing, and picnic among the zany designs of the Toronto Music Garden. The waterfront itself is often suffused with bikers and joggers, and the harbor is always packed with classic ships with masts raised. The vintage boats and ferries to the Toronto Islands make for a charming contrast against Downtown West's backdrop of skyscrapers, condos, and food trucks serving up hot, fresh fare to locals on the go. The area has a peaceful energy, and is popular with tourists and Torontonians alike.
