I always feel so good after eating here. The menu is fresh and the roasted red pepper soup is a family favorite. They also serve alcohol which is a welcome change of pace for a cafe

We were down at the John Deere Pavillion and glad we walked over for 2 wraps - The Fiesta and The Veggie. Got them to go and sat outside across the street with our doggie. Both wraps were very fresh, The Fiesta was our favorite. Going back in for a carrot cupcake. Definitely recommend.

Consistently good food with many fresh and lighter fare options. I do wish they would introduce new menu and soup choices. I don't go as often because of lack of new choices

Great casual place for a fresh lunch. Love the quesadilla, soup or salads. Sometimes food delivery can be a bit slow.

Great location downtown Moline - please check out the bar next door as well - Cafe Refresh in the evening - you won't believe you are downtown Moline. Cafe fresh offers a lot of healthy and delicious food options - never had a bad meal there - staff is friendly, courteous and welcoming.

My wife and I stopped in to get her a frappe and was surprised with how good the atmosphere felt. She went back with friends and had dinner and was impressed even more by the meals that they served.

Good selection of fresh food choices. The nuts & berry salad with chicken was excellent. My friend had the steak nachos which were also amazing.
