Fred has been teaching astronomy and science at Santa Barbara City College for 37 years, ran the planetarium at the Museum of Natural History for decades, and has been the local go-to person for all heavenly events that graced the night skies.
While enjoying Fresco’s popular Hot Mushroom Combo, which is on my top 10 lunches list, owner Jill Brouillard walked by. My automatic response was, of course, to ask her to send me any news about Fresco that I might have missed and she kindly obliged:
Some of what is new at Fresco Five Points:
- We now cater seven days a week and provide staffing and assistance with rentals.
- We offer Fundraising Saturday Evenings where an approved non-profit or people in crisis can receive 15% of cash sales between 5 and 9 p.m.
- We have many gluten-free items on our menu, including sandwiches, salads, pastas, desserts. Especially good is our gluten-free caramel and coconut banana cream pie. In our case you may also find coconut macaroons, flourless chocolate cake, sour cream coffee cake muffins, all also gluten free.
