“Hidden treasure”
Reviewed 26 June 2014 via mobile

You can spend a fortune at the Crest or get a classic breakfast or crepe for $7 by a former Crest chef, the owner, who came out to check on our meals and share stories. The ambiance is subterranean mall but don't let that stop you. The East Indian lunch menu also looks tempting but we had to hit the road.

“Best cafe in town, never disappoints!”
Reviewed 22 June 2014

I have eaten at the Fresh Onion several times and the food is always great quality, well-priced, and served in a timely fashion. Locals known this is the hottest lunch spot in town; it's packed between 12 and 1 so if you want a table for lunch go EARLY!! Also, good to know they serve breakfast all day, the their crepes are delicious!!! Only complaint is that the Fresh Onion is closed on the weekend so.... No crepes for Sunday brunch.

“Nothing but fantastic”
Reviewed 23 August 2013

Although a busy restaurant and hard to find seating sometimes, there is a reason for it. The food is absolutely amazing and the staff is super friendly. I would highly recommend eating here to both locals and tourists.
