Best spot for a quick bite to eat - Edit

The ideal place to grab something (or sit in) quick and fresh. Full of flavours and best thing is its all vegans so no need to skim through the menu options.

Pros: All vegan, Healthy and comfort food both available, All fresh

Cons: No juices, Dont serve breakfast after 11

Great new plant-based cafe in Birmingham city centre! - Edit

Lovely staff. Breakfast options are great. The coconut and banana porridge is to die for! Definitely recommend.

I came back four months later to find they have switched plastic disposable cutlery to a sustainable alternative and now offer a loyalty card! Big (vegan) brownie points!!!

Pros: Staff, creative menu, different products

Cons: no toilet

Great concept - Edit

Visited Fressh for the first time on Sunday with my partner.The staff are very attentive and helped go through the menu with us. They recommended us their 3 favourites - The what the guac burger, Tex Mex meatball sub and a side of Mac N Cheese. I loved my burger and the meatball sub was impressive too. I have tried many vegan Mac N Cheese's and I would say this is easily the creamiest and cheesiest of them all. So glad we visited. Will definitely be back.

Pros: Great flavour and filling, Cool setup, Sweet Potato Fries

Cons: Only 2 burgers?

slightly disappointed - Edit

i was really looking forward to eating at this place due to the raving reviews.
the interior is nice, the staff is lovely, yet the food experience itself fell a little short.
what i can definitely recommend is the what the guac burger, sweet potato fries and brownie. the mac and cheese, however, (which is what i was the most excited about) was underwhelming and i wish the sandwiches weren't premade. the taco bowl could definitely use some dressing.

overall, although i did like this place, it's not 5* worthy imho.

Pros: burger, brownie, staff, interior

Cons: idk i just expected a bit more

Will definitely be back! Thank you!

Pros: All vegan, Inventive recipes

Cons: Should have a loyalty scheme!

Fantastic little stop for good value vegan food - Edit

Fressh is the second 100% vegan place to open in Birmingham City Centre. It is very reasonably priced and has a great selection of burgers, curries and salads and deserts. The staff are very friendly and have cool uniforms and service is very fast, no waiting around! It is very conveniently located in the centre of town. Can't go wrong here.

I have a vlog of my first visit here on my Youtube channel.

Pros: Burgers are really tasty, Reasonably priced, Friendly staff

Cons: Not open weekday evenings or sundays, Lots of plastic used

Feeling Fressh - Edit

Gorgeous array of plant-based foods to pick, all delicious and freshly made to order. Unfortunately the Mac & Cheese was sold out when we arrived, but we ordered everything else we were excited to try - Meatball sub, Taco salad bowl, Thai curry, Falafel salad bowl and a side of Sweet potato fries. Everything was seasoned well, and was delicious.

The staff were really helpful and friendly, and the venue was very clean. The only gripe I have is the amount of one-use packages for eating in.

I can't wait to try more of the menu out in the future; the breakfast menu looks amazing, and of course to try their legendary Mac & Cheese!

Pros: Completely vegan menu, Great location , Tasty food

Cons: Amount of packaging

Great vegan healthy fast food! - Edit

Have heard alot of good review of Fressh and wasnt let down. Exceeded all my expectations with the amazing choices from sandwiches, burgers, salads, wraps. Got my order within 5 minutes (not even joking) and was still 'fressh'

Pros: Choices, Fair price for city centre, super speedy service

Great food, lovely staff - Edit

I've eaten various times at Fressh and the food doesn't disappoint. It's great to now have a city centre vegan fast food place, where not only can you get a quick bite to eat if you're in a rush, but feel like you're eating pretty healthy food too. I'd recommend the What The Guac burger with fries, and the turmeric latte is good too! The staff are lovely, as is the owner. The only thing I would like to see is for compostable or more eco friendly packaging/cutlery to be used. This is my usual qualm with all places anyway, so not a dig at Fressh but more society in general. But I am always more likely to eat/drink in a place that doesn't create plastic waste :)

Pros: good service, friendly staff, nice environment, tasty, healthy food

Cons: plastic forks, closes on Sundays (this may have changed)

Life changing experience! - Edit

Ive only recently become vegan and this was my first 'all vegan'eatery I tried. I was told by one of their staff members that apparently I had chosen their best seller 'what the guac' so I couldnt go wrong. This was well and truly a life changing experience! Cant wait to go again

Highly recommended for non veggies alike - Edit

I have started to slowly reduce my meat intake recently and have been exploring many good veggie options in Bham city centre lately. I must say HANDS DOWN Fressh is the best w. Being a 100% vegan cafe I couldnt believe the stuff they do. Its all healthy fast food and served all quick.

The staff were very informative and happy to go out of ther way to explain any of my queries.

Fresh & Tasty - Edit

Came here for lunch whilst visiting Birmingham. The shop itself is lovely. So clean, light and airy. The decor’s great and it’s really a nice environment to eat in.
The salad/food bar was excellent. Great variety and all looked really fresh. The menu was great, plenty of choice and reasonably priced.
Between us we had a burger, the meatball sub, fries and the star of the show; the mac and cheese. It was all really nice. The bread especially, was soft and fresh and the mac and cheese topped with coconut bacon was delicious.
Our only criticism of the shop would be the 2 young, female staff members. They were lacking personality and didn’t appear welcoming or enthusiastic. When asked if a salad could be made to order rather than straight off the menu we received confused looks and a quiet “ummmm I don’t know..” with no further help. They also seemed to be slow and slightly inadequate on the till and payment side of things.
This wasn’t necessarily an issue but compared to any other vegan eatery I’ve been too it was quite unusual. It gave the impression of a commercial chain which employed ‘just anyone’, not people passionate about veganism.
Despite this, I’d definitely return, if not for the experience then the food alone!

Pros: Tasty Food, Reasonably Priced (for a city), Lovely Environment

Cons: Indifferent and Slightly Incompetent Staff

Friendly staff, great food - Edit

We were looking for breakfast in Birmingham and were disappointed by the choice we found, so we did a search online and Fressh was the closest suggestion. Even then we were still hunting around, but then we actually stumbled on to Fressh, we took that as a sign we should give it ago. The breakfast was good, we had the breakfast meal deals. I think that maybe the deal could offer two hash browns but other than that we were really impressed.
The man who served us was really friendly and helpful. The food was tasty and we enjoyed it. If we come to Birmingham again we’ll definitely go back to Fressh, at present they’ve only been open 4 weeks, so I wish them the best of luck.

Pros: Vegan, woo hoo!, Great staff, Good menu choices

Cons: Out of the way, could be difficult to find, There are only stools, I like a chair with a back, Can’t think of another one!

Not just for vegans - Edit

Having heard so many goods things about this place I decided to give it a try. I spoke to the owner Vijay who took out time to explain that the menu was designed specifically for non-vegans in mind and he has nailed it. You really dont have to be vegan to enjoy this good healthy grub!

Pros: Fresh food, healthy, good location

Cons: Would like to see grab and go options
