Fred's is a great cafe style restaurant, with a small but diverse menu. Very tasty breakfasts and excellent coffee. Limited outdoor seating on busy corner, but very roomy, clean and bright inside.

I had lunch here twice and enjoyed the food both times. The cupcakes are the best I've ever had. Their coffee is also great. The atmosphere is contemporary, artistic, and comfortable with good wifi.

Part cafe, part spa, part coffee shop, Fred's is an interesting concept. On a Tuesday at lunch it was quite busy, and service was slow. The food was great, I had the lobster mac & cheese which was not too rich and filled with cherry...More

Recently my sister and I went in search of Fred's Restaurant. I had heard a conversation on CBC Radio regarding the selection of "comfort" food being served at Fred's during the cold winter months and wanted to taste it first hand. We found Fred's on...More
