“As good as bain-marie gets”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2012

The co-op food is all self-serve and the hot food is kept warm by a hot water bath. As far as this style of food goes, this is about as good as it gets. It is relatively pricey and you pay by weight (I assume and hope that the weight of bowl is deducted a pre-set amount). If you have an appetite, you will get more food for your dollar elsewhere, but if you're looking for something different, international, vegetarian or vegan this is probably the place. And after you have eaten, you can buy cake, cookies or drinks to take home.

“Great Place for a Quick Bite”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2012

The deli here is terrific. I made my own salad at the salad bar and picked up some groceries while there. Enjoyed the indoor seating and people watching.

“Healthy Downtown Option”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 31, 2012

I work 1 block from the downtown co-op and am a regular visitor. The co-op is a great healthy alternative to a quick lunch. The hot bar has a great options that change every day. The salad bar is full of fresh options that you can add to your plate of hot bar selections. The sandwiches are also great, but the line gets long and takes a while so I will usually end up getting a salad. I love that there are gluten free options and allergy info is listed on all baked goods.

Some people think that the prices are high, but if you eat out regularlly or are used to the prices of organic products it will not be as big of a deal.

The staff is amazingly nice and make everyone feel welcomed. This is a great place for lunch, a snack, a meeting with work folk or a cup of joe to get you through that mid afternoon slump.

“Great option for lunch on the go”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 30, 2012

You will find a greta salad bar, hot bar and sandwich bar here. The curry mango lime chicken salad is AMAZING. Great place if you need to know exactly what is in your food (allergies, etc) as everything is labeled. Great organic, logal, vergetarian, gluten free options.

“meh”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2012

a smaller version of Whole Food, good coffee, but the food court was very limited. Staff was ok, on the cold side. Perhaps since we don't look local.
