If you just want coffee, a scone and a yogurt like us, this is a good spot to stop in Grand Marais. It is not cheap for non-members, but it was excellent and convenient.

If I win the lottery, I will hire the person making those outstanding soups. Best I've ever had, other than Mom's. And the cheese selection is to die for. As are the deli salads. The lemon basil potato salad is exceptional. Also a great place for fruits and veggies and delicious products you can't find in your supermarket.

The selection was good, but I found the prices to be a bit high. We were able to find all of the vegan items that we needed to supplement our fresh rainbow trout dinner.

What a wonderful co-op, great food options to take back to your place to make, along with gluten free options and natural items. We also had lunch chili was very good, have a great gluten free brownie from Eflin?. Good selection of beverages on the go, good area to eat in. Very impressed with how green the building is, associates... More

I stopped in for a few breakfast items and to refill my gallon water jugs. The staff was friendly and the place was clean and attractive. The prices about the same or slightly higher than our Saint Paul Food Co-op. Although this it not a restaurant, I believe they sell some sandwiches and some other grab and go food.

Its a very pleasant store, but much smaller than I was expecting and compared to the other supermarkets in town, very expensive. We stopped in because this was the first store was saw on our first pass through GM. It is upscale and looks like a little Whole Foods, but oddly the selection is very thin. One of the reasons...

Our "go to" place for yogurt and snacks. They carry organic and other healthy foods. Can eat right there also. Friendly staff.

What a great find in Grand Marais. Lots of fresh organic foods. The only thing we couldn't here was English muffins, but that was not a big deal. Staff was very friendly.

Coop is the best way to go. Give them your business. Safe, Organics offered. Feels like home. We always stop into Coops on our travels. We're family. This one is nice, clean and well stocked. Grand Marais is such a wonderful gem in the north of Minnesota. Overlooking the great Lake Superior. We are so blessed to have it in... More
