Fresco moving

A rumor heard by reader Kate and second-hand information from reader Annie suggests that Fresco Cafe at 3987-B State Street in the Five Points Shopping Center is considering looking for a new space due to a rent increase. I visit Fresco several time per year, exclusively for their Hot Mushroom Combo sandwich that has a permanent spot in my top-ten favorite meals list for the South Coast. I called the eatery and they confirmed that a move is planned.

    Noooooo, it can’t go. This is a favorite place of mine and is right by my house…

    Fresco’s is an all-time favorite of ours! We live nearby also and would hate to see it go. It is a fixture of 5 Points. Please don’t go or at least don’t go too far! Eggplant parm calzone or sandwich is so delicious. Falafel wrap is perfect. Quiches are super. Salads are wonderful. Best desserts!

    I used to like their food but stopped going because it is so dirty…the walls, the bathrooms are terrible with storage nearby, the decor is super dated and you can’t help but think that dirt ends up in the food. Had a bad salmon salad which sealed the deal to never eat there again. why is it they can’t clean and paint and keep things tidy? I guess they didn’t want to invest in the space anymore given this news

    I’ve never been impressed with freshness there… Rarely went. Expensive prices considering the ingredients, too.

    The prices are very high and quality mediocre. Common in Santa Barbara. Mostly show with little substance
