Simple and healthy organic food
Posted on 02 / 14 / 2013
We ate at Freschette several time during our stay in Palermo last December. The restaurant is very small (can sit around 25) and unpretentious, but still has a nice modern/indie decor. The place is frequented by locals and the staff doesn't speak English very well. In fact, the staff and the other customers even seemed surprised to see tourists in the establishment. Nonetheless, everyone was nice and we were able to convey that we were vegans. They told us what the vegans options were and offered to adapt their recipes for us if we wanted to try some of the non-vegan options on the menu, which I think changes weekly. The chef was very nice and seemed genuinely happy to serve vegan customers.
The food itself was good, simple, healthy and inexpensive. A meal with a fresh juice was about 10 euros, which is really a bargain for a restaurant in Palermo. Don't expect anything fancy or exceptional, but if you're homesick and craving for a simple healthy and comforting meal, Freschette is the right place to go.
