Good selection, recently renovated place for local, organic, and/or gluten free foods. Had some terrific local coffee (Fika) and great granola. Easy to get to and friendly staff.

In a location where business hours are set by individuals who work less than bankers it was great to find this gem open till about 8pm except for Sundays when it is 7pm. My wife and myself (don't let her know) have come to like co-ops for our groceries. Granted their items tend to be a bit higher cost but... More

. . . a fun, kinda quirky locals place. The new building looks just like on of those pretentious little stores in the suburbs bake home. All bright and shiny isn't necessarily good.

Got sick of eating out during our stay so we purchased some fresh food from the Co-op. Great looking store, super helpful staff and great food. Well worth the visit if you are in the area and are staying or need goods for outdoor activities.

It's always nice to support the local gig. It always feels like I'm at home when I visit local coops. People are nice, friendly and helpful. They're interested in you. Clean, bright and well stocked. Thanks.

I love this spot! They have Peace coffee (great, dark roast) and is my go-to spot in Grand Marais for coffee and lunch. Everyone here has always been nice and their newly-remodeled building is great. There is a nice seating area in front to sit and enjoy the great food and coffee.

Their new surroundings are beautiful and peaceful to the soul. On our travels to this area, it is where we shop for produce, and the occasional soup, cheese, and maple syrup. The staff is always welcoming.

Good to have this resource in town for tourists but the produce section needs a lot of work. The veggies were not kept moist and were wilting.

We went there almost every day. It was a great place to pick up picnic fare as we were painting outside for the week. Thee food was fresh and mostly organic. A nice surprise for so far north.

And great service too. Clean, stocked, reasonable prices. Rating the store, not the restaurant, which I'm sure is also good.
