This week Fresh Cafe announced on its Facebook page that it would no longer remain open in its current location. Chef-owner Gina Bugayong wrote:
"Today it's been decided that fresh will no longer be open in its current location. I know this is sudden but bigger and better things are on the horizon. We will be reopening very soon -- details will follow.
I am humbled and grateful for all of the support and appreciation you have given us and the opportunity you gave so I could see my dream come to fruition.
I am excited, motivated, and ready to expand. A very special thanks to my team at fresh
thank you for your loyalty -- I love you guys!
My team and I look forward to serving you in the near future @ re:fresh!"
This makes us sad, because the Hannibal Square eatery was one of our favorite places for a girls lunch, with its great wine selection, super-creative salads (made from locally sourced ingredients), and modern-yet-cozy atmosphere. We will miss all of that, but if we're interpreting the Facebook post properly, it looks like the restaurant's not gone forever, just going through a "refresh" of sorts. New location, maybe? We'll let you know as soon as we get an update.
