“Great place for a catch up”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 June 2012

Fresh is a 'happening' cafe! Busy but not noisy and chaotic. I've experienced cafes with the same 'busy factor' but the 'vibe' has that edge of stress and the staff come across as slightly flustered. Not at this place!

The service is faultless. Nothing is too much trouble for the waitstaff who are chirpy and friendly. At one point, one of the window tables became available and although the cafe was practically full and they were busy, the waitress took the time to ask
if we would like to 'upgrade' from where we were sitting in the centre to enjoy the view!

Good coffee and drinks too! Will definitely return to sample more of the menu if I have the opportunity.

“We Always Enjoy It”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 June 2012

As you can see, we come here whenever we are in Leura. Coffee and food of consistently high standard, good vibe, friendly service.
All day breakfasts are great and varied menu, try risottos which are excellent and ricotta pancakes. Check blackboard items. A warm, inviting place.

“Buzzy, pleasant service and good food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 November 2011

We have been to Fresh twice for lunch and on both occasions the food was good. The service was very friendly and the food came promptly. Coffee is also very good. As well as there being lots of tourists, the cafe also seems to be used by locals so lots of chatting with staff, which gives the place a good feel. Papers and magazines supplied, plus a water tap and glasses. We'll go again.
