Coffee and cocktails are the basis of everything at The Freshman, a newly opened restaurant on Crystal Drive. The owner wanted to create a place where people could gather from sunrise to sunset for any occasion, with a sense of community you can’t find anywhere else. So far, they’re earning rave reviews on all fronts!
In the morning, grab an egg and cheese sandwich or the Greek yogurt parfait with housemade granola and wildflower honey if you’re on the go. If you have a minute to indulge, grab a fancy toast—the VA ham with dried fig, goat cheese, and fennel pollen is absolutely delightful. Pair that with a drip coffee or dirty chai and you’ll start your day on the right foot.
As the day goes on, they continue to serve breakfast but also have other tasty morsels for the afternoon and evening. Taste the chickpea fritters, one of their incredible flatbreads, or get a large plate of steak frites! Pair that with a little bubbly and you’re set for the evening. We think this spot is going to become a go-to for many.
