I really want to like this place.
Submitted Thursday, November 22, 2012 - 1:15am [Dine in]

I work nearby and every few months I drop down to try it out but man it's tough to like this place. The last time I waited 30 minutes for a tuna sandwich that (unlike the ones I saw go out while waiting) was sadly well done. Not feeling much love from the staff either. Too bad... could be such a great little joint.

There's no way anyone should wait 80 minutes for re-fried beans with cheese melted on it.

I've been there twice in the last few months. There's nothing culinarily interesting going on at this place. The server either had way too many tables or was hanging out having laughs in the back because we only saw her a couple of times in the 80 minutes we waited for our sad meals. You won't see any fresh local ingredients or interesting interpretations of Mexican grub but instead everything looks and tastes pretty much the same whether it's deep fried or re-fried beans with cheese melted on it.

I used to like this place but after tonight I'm never going back.

I ordered what I thought was the safest bet for a snack tonight which was the grilled cheese sandwich. Seriously, who can't make a grilled cheese sandwich? Aparently the cook at The Fringe can't. It came so burnt I could smell it and definitely couldn't get more than a couple of bites down. But after sampling this sad attempt at cooking, it got worse. We sat at the bar where we could see the cook blowing her nose several times and never washing her hands. Clearly she was sick but she handled all the food with bare, snotty hands. Wow.

The bartender and music were both cool but the "cook" showed no interest in doing a decent job in any way.

Friendly greasy spoon
Submitted Tuesday, February 7, 2012 - 1:34am [Dine in]

You won't find fancy stuff here but for a little hole in the wall greasy spoon, they can crank out some pretty decent lunches. I like the salmon burger with fries as a somewhat regular meal but the cook also has a good rotation of daily specials with stuff like lasagna, teriyaki chicken or mac and cheese. They could really use a make-over or at least a good cleaning. Sticky surfaces freak me out.

Best croissant in town, great other stuff too
Submitted Tuesday, February 7, 2012 - 1:26am [Dine in]

What can I say about their croissants. Crispy on the outside, buttery and chewy on the inside. They are completely ridiculous and amazing with coffee (which they also make well). But don't stop there. They make fantastic sandwiches, waffles and pastries. They are a bit pricey but you get what you pay for here.

Bad start, Food OK
Submitted Tuesday, February 7, 2012 - 12:57am [Dine in]

The sour lassie smelled like sulphur and was missing all kinds of flavor (salt and cumin). The limp salad on an ice-cold plate was obviously pre-portioned and sitting in a fridge way too long. The main dish, vegetarian thali, was actually quite good. The place is old and greasy inside and they really need a make-over.
