This place was a great place to sit outside and enjoy a great breakfast. Staff was super friendly and attentive, great with our little kid and kept him busy with crayons and little toys. The food was great, a lot of home cooked goodies and fresh fruit. Coffee was also great. Overall, great cafe for breakfast.

This charming little restaurant is only open for breakfast and lunch. There are some very unique items on the menu such as roasted eggplant, goat cheese and olive tapanade sandwich (my favorite). There are also "standards" like turkey sandwiches or grilled cheese. The soups change daily. They are all good, but I have a few favorites that are so delicious that I am disappointed when they are not the specials (hint, hint to the owners!): roasted red pepper, butternut squash, and tomato bisque. They also have salad specials each day that are very good. My 13 year old daughter loves the reuben (she changes it to a turkey ruben). It is pretty small inside - maybe 6 or 7 tables - with some tables under the trees for shade outside. Plenty of off street parking which is a plus for this area. Great service and great food.

Me and my family of five love this place. The selections available are healthy and delicious. The service is awesome and the experience is always great. Not to mention, they have the playschool plastic chairs and table for the kids with coloring books and play-doh!

We happened upon Fresh Start when looking for a late lunch. Delighted with our meals, we returned for breakfast the following week. We were just as impressed! Go there expecting excellent food at a reasonable price. I don't recall any potatoes on the menu, so if you opt for indoor seating, you won't leave smelling like a frenchfry.
And they have wine on the menu!
