A Vintage Year for Fresh Choices

Celebrating 15 years in Guildford

A selection of your comments...

In this day and age of saving, up-cycling and vintage chic, head straight to Fresh Choices to have a rummage through lost treasure - not only will you get an excellent hot beverage and home baked goodies, but you can return to a by-gone age and pick up a bargain - pretty vintage china, mixing bowls that Mrs Padmore would love to get her hands on, cut glass jugs, even vintage leather luggage to take it all away in! A wonderful place to find an original Christmas gift!!

Good luck Tom and Sharon!
I will be in again on my next visit to Guildford
I am thrilled with my rolling pin and pretty butter knife!

Best wishes

"Still the best breakfast in Guildford..."

The food is fresh and the choice is yours. Fussy eaters will love Fresh Choices because, unlike the cafe chains where you pluck your sandwich or wrap from the chiller, here your sandwich is made to order. Like butter or hate it: you don’t have to have it. 

It’s order and pay at the counter which is great for shoppers who like a quick getaway. My cappuccino was smooth and I enjoyed sitting on a bar stool watching the North Street traffic go by. To sum up Fresh Choices: fast food with a healthy edge.

“Our company is new to the area and given that we hold a number of large meetings, we need a good local provider who serves delicious but affordable food. The director stumbled upon Fresh Choices and came back raving about the quality of the food, as well as the excellent customer service. To top it off, they had the wonderful notion to give us a free testing platter to seal the deal. Needless to say, after that, we were putty in their hands and now we’re regulars. Thanks guys.”

I have been dropping into Fresh Choices on a regular basis now for over a year. The café is precisely as described – service is friendly and efficient, and I always look forward to my trip up to the top of town for a relaxing coffee and bite to eat. The food is reasonably priced, freshly prepared, and where possible every endeavour is made to ensure that it is prepared to the customer’s requirements. The café itself is light, airy, clean and does not feel cramped (unlike some of the more upmarket coffee chain shops in the town … which I do not like visiting). I have

introduced several of my friends and family to Fresh Choices, and in discussing it last week found that several are now visiting the shop themselves as a place of preference.

I should add that I found Fresh Choices by chance when looking for a replacement for a similar independent coffee shop when my previous favourite in Godalming closed down. It was a lucky find!

We visited the farmers market in Guildford today and it was lovely to find such a friendly place to stop for a bite to eat. Our jacket potatoes were loaded with fresh homemade fillings and the orange juice was straight from the orange and into the glass!
Thank you to the owners and staff for such excellent customer service, we will be back next month!

I have tried this place before and I arrived here on this cold sat afternoon and as you walk in the atmosphere of fresh choices is a real joy to be greeted with as the place is really quiet with just the distant customers conversations. Its has a lovely range of cakes, sandwiches, hot meals and salads. Services is very prompt as customers are informed that thier food would be brought to them at their table. There is no waiting around its easy to find right after the post office in the top of the high street. Prices are reasonable and affordable for most of the shoppers.

Congratulations on your new premises which I visited today (I'm the bloke from the Police who always has a chicken based baguette, lettuce, butter, cut in half!). Very spacious and does justice to the great food you provide. I look forward to many more visits.
Best of luck with your new venture.
