I stopped in at Frisch Compassionate Eatery twice during a recent business trip to Salt Lake City. The first time was during the dinner hour. When we entered, the staff greeted us warmly. However, I was with a friend who looked over the menu and chose not to stay. Her comment was that the menu was more of a lunch than a dinner menu. It's true, there were a lot of salads and wraps on the menu.
About a week later, I came back again. It was a rainy day, I was very hungry, and was looking forward to a great hot vegan meal. I'm sorry to say that I was disappointed. The dinner entree items -- i.e., items other than salads and wraps -- were very soy-heavy. There was a preponderance of fake meat items such as "soy chicken" which I don't care for.
I ended up choosing the chili. Sadly, it was very, very dry. I was embarrassed to mention this to the staff and quietly poured a few tablespoons of my tea into it too loosen it up. Maybe I should have tried one of the other menu offerings. From the review, the "soy chicken" seems to be popular with the locals.
Oh my god! This place is so amazing. Great service, friendly workers, and the food is to die for. If you come to Salt Lake, you NEED to eat here and at least try some of their yummy goodies!
I was here last year, and I will absolutely be back if I'm ever in SLC again. The food is tasty, and the staff was really nice, the waiter actually stopped by my table for a little while (I was eating alone) and had a pleasant conversation. Check it out!
I went here for lunch about a month or so ago. First time I'd been there and I found the staff to be very helpful and friendly. I tried the special, which was a dish with garbanzo beans and a marinara sauce along with some other things. I was extremely satisfied with the taste, freshness, quality, and price. I'm not a huge fan of garbanzo beans unless they are pulverized into a good hummus, but this dish was GOOD! Portion size was good as well. I've found that at some of the restaurants that are vegan, portion sizes are on the small end. Not here. It filled me up. Location is right downtown, so convenient for downtown workers. I'll definitely go here again.
It looks like the new location with be on 1300 S. and 135 E. - I'm hoping they open soon!

03-07-2014 UPDATE - Frisch is now open at 145 East and 1300 South, Suite 201. They informed me that they have been open a little over a week. They do not yet have a large sign, so it was a bit tricky to spot them (but it will be coming soon). I had their special, a buffalo soy-chicken wrap. It was wonderful. I also tried one of the cupcakes made by Cakewalk Vegan Bakery. It was delicious. The interior of the new location is bright and cheery. The customer service is top-notch as well. I'm happy to report that the new location also has a coffee bar, and one of the employees told me that the coffee will be available starting at 6AM, and then lunch service will begin at 11AM. I'm so happy that this Frisch is open again. It seems to be better than ever. Their website seems to need an update, but it appears that their facebook page has all the up-to-date info: https://www.facebook.com/frischeatery/info
My family and I just ate at this amazing restaurant and can't wait to return. My husband and I loved what we ordered and what the other ordered. My son thought the Mac and cheese was delicious! We also tried the deserts and thought they were amazing!
This place smelled fantastic from the street and did not disappoint. Even my 14-year-old is hooked. I like the curried tofu salad and he dug the nachos. We also liked the Dillos, which are super-yummy vegan versions of Twinkies.
I have been to Frisch a couple of times now, and it has been 5+ stars every time! They are excellently priced, great quantity and quality of food, easily accessible location, amazing staff, diverse menu that they are willing to alter to fit any dietary restrictions (such as GF), their produce is organic and locally sourced.. I could go on.
Frisch Compassionate Eatery is easily the best vegan restaurant in SLC. I will forever continue to give them my undying support!
I love how fresh this place is. The prices are ok. 8 oz portions are usually $4 and 16 oz portions are usually $8. Most things are gonna be in that range. I was able to get some nachos at $7 and they totally blew vertical out of the water as far price goes. Extra Add-ons are reasonable at $1.50 (ie soy chicken on your nachos). Wish the portions were a bit bigger for the price.
There is a reason that this all Vegan Restaurant is attracting new customers is obvious once you experience Frisch Compassionate Eatery. Fresh food, Fun Environment, Owned and Operated by great people.
I love the Fancy Boy Wrap and the Mac and Cheeze. Don't forget to pickup a Cakewalk treat while you are there!
Great for lunch. All vegan. Delicious. Super awesome staff.
One of the first things I loved about Frisch was seeing the whole family working together! They are very kind and friendly and the food is delicious! My husband LOVES the BBQ wrap and goes there often for lunch. We just went for Saturday brunch a couple weeks ago and the biscuits and gravy were absolutely fantastic! I also LOVE that they offer gluten free options as my daughter is gluten free.
On our visit to SLC my husband and I tried this place once, and it was good. We got some sort of wrap, and the special which was tacos. Very tasty food. Very friendly people!
This place was great if you're in the mood for fresh food. I had the salad sampler and highly recommend it. My husband had a wrap that came with these tasty, little chips.
I'd definitely go back! I LOVE salad!
I LOVE Frisch. I don't know where to begin. You walk in the door and are hit with colors and smiles. The atmosphere there is always upbeat, helpful, and happy. The food choices are amazing and easily customizable. My favorite is the Technicolor Tempeh Salad and their Veggie Wrap with the sesame soy chicken added - you can't go wrong with the bean spread you choose, but the curry one is amazing.
They have daily specials, baked goods from a vegan local bakery, and provide fresh, delicious, and earth friendly food. If you like their Facebook page, they are brilliant and keeping you updated on their specials and any changes to the menu etc.
Lastly, I want to talk about their to-go option. I'm a busy woman and love the fact that I can call them up quickly and my food is usually ready in 15 minutes or less. Often much less. They know my name and are happy ever time I come in! I love FRISCH!
I liked this place... It just opened up, but they were good. I tried there spicy Mac in cheze, it was pretty dank.
I'd like to come here again honestly... If there's any hungry veggie hippies, then c'mon down to this place. You get decent portions for the price too.
This has quickly become my favorite restaurant. The food is so so good, it really puts me in a good mood. My carnivore hubby names their vegan nachos as his favorite food now. The owners are fantastic and friendly. I tell everyone I know to go eat at Frisch!
Awesome food, great owners. Their food, beyond being vegan, is super healthful and tasty. I love their wraps and salads. They have new specials on a daily basis and love to get creative with food. If you're looking for an inexpensive, healthy, yummy lunch look no further! Plus the interior is cheery and bright. A definite favorite!
Oh, and they cook with soy curls! The only place in Utah you can get them.
