We foodies jump at the chance to try something new, so when we heard the news that Freshii was revamping its menu and re-opening as Fresca Deli we were one of the first in line to try it out. While the Fresca look and feel is still Freshii, the menu is very different – and a-top the refreshed list is grilled cheese. Need I say more? Five grilled cheese offerings adorn the menu and are prepared with turkey, ham, bacon or just cheese.
Julie and I went with The Picnic: brie, havarti and parmesan cheeses, with sliced apples and plum jam grilled on multigrain bread – the ideal combo of sweet and tart flavors in gooey-cheese.
Kris tried The Great: havarti, sharp cheddar and parmesan cheeses grilled on sourdough and Kim had the The Great with Bacon, which included a generous amount of crispy, smoked bacon. As for our sides, cream of tomato basil and posole were the obvious pairings. And, today’s blustery winds made it the perfect day for this comfort-food combo.
We’ll be back to try a range of new menu items – from traditional deli, grilled and hot sandwiches, to grilled burritos, quesadillas, rice bowls, salads and soups. And, yes, they still have frozen yogurt and a plethora of packaged snacks for on-the-go treats.
