“Not what it seems!”
Reviewed May 25, 2013

Several trips to Greenlife have cemented my overall opinion that it is being taken off my list of places to get fresh, unusual, and organic foods. My last trip resulted in nearly spoiled fresh lamb. Stale cookies have been a consistent finding. Moreover, the places is just not quite clean when you look close. They certainly have their devotees who flock to the place with it's "all natural" appeal, but the proof is in the pudding and it doesn't quite gel. GW

“A small whole foods store”
Reviewed April 16, 2013

After being use to a larger Whole Foods, a little disappointed. Very small and crowded, parking needs work to.

“Crowded with grumpy staff”
Reviewed April 3, 2013

We hoped to pick up a simple lunch of soup, bread, and cheese, but the place was crowded and hard to maneuver in. The soup was okay, not great, and the bread was basically what you might get in a regular grocery store -- nothing special. The checkout person was grumpy and told us that since we were going to be eating right outside, she didn't need to pack our items. We probably won't go back again.

“Such quality”
Reviewed March 21, 2013

Makes you feel healthier just to go through the door. Wish there were more locations but worth the drive.
