Lovely green colour scheme.

A large and spacious store down one side of Altona with a pleasant interior, the two days I shopped I saw quite a few young family units. A bakery section is adjacent to the two check-outs, the queues at times a little long. A lot of pasta, sauces, pesto - inc. vegan - different soy milks and plant yogurts (in the fridge cabinets which took up the entire far wall), as well as calf's milk, plus fleshy curved sausages on sale to go with the vegetarian/vegan produce. The usual tasty German tofu, and plant-based "bangers". I can't say whether either meat or plant predominated in this store; it was all quite balanced really - a bit like parent(s) out looking at baby clothing and soaps - inc. honey ones - stretching down the left side of the ground floor store. I don't remember any seating area, but neither do I remember spotting a deli-type counter. A quick in and out for pantry essentials - inc. flour - is possible, but I spent quite a bit of time just "browsing" before settling on pesto, rice cakes, dried pasta shells, a packet of miso stock cubes (no oriental noodles, eg. soba, in store) and some apple-carrot juice.
Very long refrigerated section., In store bakery and polite staff., Spacious floor area.
Slowish check out - only two tills.
