Fresh Cafe Downtown has been open for a couple months now, but the kinks are still being worked out, and since its opening, there has been a lot of uncertainty as far as regular hours, food and drink offerings. We got an invite to the pre-launch party for friends, family and media to check out the food and drinks, and found them creative, original and surprisingly diverse. Take a look, and then try them for yourself at Fresh Cafe Downtown’s Grand Opening, next week Thursday, July 24.
Fresh Cafe Downtown's Soft Opening
Thursday's "friends, family and media" soft opening at Fresh Cafe Downtown showcased everything that's been worked on as far as new food and drinks. Although there was a mixup and things kicked off a half an hour late, all was forgiven as soon as we came to the cocktail samples.
According to bartender Hale, who also tends bar at Disney Aulani, all the bartenders had a hand in designing the drink menu, bringing their diverse experience in the liquor industry to the table to create a menu that is both unique and very, very tasty. Look for a lot of house-made syrups, infused liquors and unusual combinations. A favorite? The Pear & Peach (pink colored one in front). It's smooth, perfectly balanced, fruity without being too sweet, and refreshing on a hot day.
