I have eaten breakfast, brunch, lunch, dinner, and had food catered from here and everything I have ever had has been delicious! From the omeletes, to the salads, to the knuckle sandwich and homemade corned beef for the reubens, their food is incredible! Great beer and wine menu at night and great apps as well. They also have live music a lot! A must-try in lakeland.

We mostly eat breakfast here. Regular breakfast fare menu (well prepared) and pastries galore give you a wide range of choices to go with your morning coffee. Also, has a lunch, brunch and dinner menu and offers Wednesday evening live music. A late night offering on Thursday, Friday and Saturday gives you a choice of interesting small plates (10 pm to midnight). This restaurant has a lot to offer a wide range of customers.

Grilled chicken cobb was something u make at home... Chicken was extremely tough. $8 was a little steep for what it was. My friends were charged to split a meal. The potato salad was a tiny portion. Burger was tiny and flat for $9. Ambiance is cute. In all fairness, we didn't sample from the bakery and it looked decent. The service was not good. Staff were unfriendly and it took forever for us to place our order, but we were only one of two tables. Menu selection, aside from breakfast, doesn't offer much. Won't go back.

Frescos used to be more of bakery and is now more of a quality restaurant/wine bar with an extensive list of excellent beers. On weekends and Wednesday evenings they have live music which adds a nice vibe. They offer everything from pizza to filet. On recent Wednesday evening the place was completely full for "Burgers, Beer and Blues" night. Although the live music was more Jazz than Blues - it was really nice. On late Saturday nights they offer all open wines for $4 - regardless of which one. The idea is that they do no want half opened bottles sitting around. Frescos is a small place - and music can be a little loud if you are sitting at one of the tables near the "stage". Beer selection is good - but prices outside of happy hour are a little high.

Loved this restaurant. The atmosphere was just what my husband and I were looking for. The fish taco appetizer was the best. We also enjoyed the carrot cake, it was so fresh. You can share the chicken caesar salad.
