Full suite of hot beverages, as well as cold beverages (beer included). Great bagels by the bag, legendary scones and breakfast sandwiches. Their soups, salads, and sandwiches are way above par for a cafe. There’s occasional ramen, many brief and beloved lunch specials. Note: menus differ between locations.

Speaking specifically of the Harvey Rd. location, Fixed has some excellent coffee. Lucky for me light roasts are now the in thing - that's all you'll find at this location. Service was friendly. My co-conspirator had a cappuccino and sings its praises. My two gripes are thus:
1. A poor selection of baked goods, as well as the feeling they were less than fresh, being a jaunt from the kitchen.
2. The dull and lazy interior. Perhaps a few more days under construction would have given the Fixed Folks time to sand and paint their patched drywall, to sort out the strange mix of fluorescent and track lighting, and to stick more than trinkets to their walls.
Had a coffee, which was by far the best I've ever had downtown, and a bagel with miso maple butter, which was delicious. I've been craving it ever since! The bagel was fresh and hot instead of lukewarm, and the miso maple butter had the perfect combination of salt and sweetness. Also had the hummus, veggie, and sourdough plate, which was well worth the $7.50. The hummus was fresh and delicious and paired nicely with crisp carrots and cucumber. My daughter had a kid's hot chocolate that was only $2, and a pumpkin muffin that she loved. Going again tomorrow!
