I never even heard of this place and I certainly didn't know it was in our neighborhood...guess I have to get over there and check them out.

Yay! Love Fresco! They have been such good supporters of my daughter's school, Celerity Troika. The food is fresh, the store immaculate, and the staff are warm and friendly. Love the specialty items. It helps that the owners are really nice, accesible people who give back to the community. Two ecstatic thumbs up!
