I think it is one of the best kept secrets on the lower north shore. The staff are sensational, the food is of the highest standard I have had in any cafe and MOST IMPORTANT. The coffee is sensational. I would never have thought I could have a coffee and be surprised by how good it was again. Highly suggest you try it. There's much hype about others near by but this Fresh cafe is now top of my list when in Crows Nest.
So refreshing to find a cafe that has sensational food, service AND coffee! I just happened across this cafe recently and was really impressed at the quality of the coffee, wonderful mellow flavour espresso, perfect milk and served with a smile to top it all off. I can hardly wait to go back to try more products from their fresh menu :)
I tried pic and fw - really liked coffee here. Coffee was beautifully extracted with right temp and texturing on the milk. Personally feeling the flavour is a bit similar to that of the Single Origin Roaster in Surry Hills. Unexpectedly found a cafe serving a nice cup of coffee in Crows Nest. The only drawback here is a loud noise outside due to construction work.
As a regular at bean drinking I hate the fact it's now too busy, too noisy and too cramped! So I tried fresh which has opened in the last month or so. Firstly let's start with the service, fantastic and the owner is caring and very friendly. Moved my table for me to get out of sun. My wife had a cup cake that melted in your mouth! Coffee was as good as bean drinking so was happy and the atmosphere was a lot more relaxed and calm. Going to make this my local haunt before it becomes to busy.
