Offers a variety of healthy food, personal care and skin care products for the whole family. They have an onsite deli with a good selection of food options to satisfy the snacking urge to a full meal - all organic and fresh. Equal to Whole Foods, Trader Joe's or Earthfare.

Inside and on the second floor of a boutique grocery store, the food items were delicious. I picked out several items including a basil turkey meatloaf, Indian Somosa, and a peach pie to take back to my hotel room. They do have tables there too.

We ate at Marlene's a year ago and purposely sought it out for lunch today after arriving back in town. The food options are intriguing and tasty. I like making my own sandwich but there are also great soups and others items in the case. Shopping around is fun. Organic and nature are the themes of course. I'd highly recommend... More

The food is fresh, the service helpful, etc. Why didn't Marlene's get the top rating? The selection is more limited than other top of the line grocery stores and deli's.

We frequently pick up family members at the airport. Since the airlines don't really offer a satisfactory meal option anymore we have hungry travelers to accomadate. SeaTac has a number of fast food options, and restaurants attached to hotels, but nothing to satisfy our vegetarian family members. Since we head south to get home from the airport we were interested... More

Close to the hotel we were staying at, we decided to go get a salad for dinner. Eating was upstairs and they have a variety of items on the salad bar, along with soup, sandwiches and pastries. You pay for the salad by weight and we were very pleased with the selection and quality of food.

The salad bar is my go-to lunch place when I'm in town for business. All the produce is organic and always looks fresh. I feel so much healthier having eaten here.

Has fresh fruit and vegetables. Stopped by for bottled water and cream for my coffee and some fruit. Excellent play to get a few things that you forgot to bring on your trip. Just down to the next block is the bus depot and you can ride straight to downtown with no stops for $2.50. Then enjoy downtown and pick... More
