A group of us went to Cafe Fresca on January 24, 2009, We told the waiter we were going to a play and needed to be finished in about an hour and a half. The service was terrible. When the food wasn’t out in an hour, I talked to the manager and explained we had advised the waiter we were on a time constraint and the manager/owner didn’t even apologize. We finally got the food and had to rush. We were late for the play. I do understand sometimes things fall behind in a restaurant but there is no excuse for the owners lack of customer support. I don’t plan on ever spending another penny on a place with such poor service/management.

They live up to their name! Their food is absolutely fresh and simple. It’s hard to find a parking spot at lunch so go early or after the lunch rush. The salads are crisp, beautiful and big. The sandwiches have the freshest meat…and its the real deal…not the processed stuff they use at Subway. I’ve never had a bad experience in the two dozen times I’ve been. Wish there were more little lunch spots of the same caliber near the Elmwood area. Thanks Cafe Fresca!
