“Great alternative to whole foods, with a good bulk shopping experience.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 8, 2013

It is pricey, but isn't everything that is healthy, organic, non-GMO, etcetera, etcetera these days? I found the bin selection fantastic, but the groceries could have more variety. Good spot as an alternative to Whole Foods.

“AWESOME INDEPENDENT GROCER W/DELI AND BAKERY”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 28, 2012

If you like to shop in natural food stores and are looking for an alternative to the chains (WF) try Staff of Life - a Santa Cruz So. favorite for over 35 years!!!! This place has everything...from a relaxing outdoor area with water feature and espresso bar to a hot food bar featuring many different vegetarian options everyday! They even serve breakfast in the AM....plus yummy bakery treats. Also a great body care and vitamin section. Wonderful meat counter as well as seafood...all in all a find! shop like a local at Staff of Life!!!
