Not all organic and not all so friendly

Posted on 10 / 01 / 2013

The range of products in this shop is good, you will get nearly everything you need here. We stocked up on our food pile before setting off to the Scilly Islands here and among other things bought a packet of Moroccan style cous cous which at closer look at the B&B later on turned out not to be organic at all! There was no sign of an organic label or anything like that and the ingredients were all convetional including sugar and other things we certainly didn't want to have in our food (it wasn't even vegan..).
I'm not sure how te law works in the UK with things like that but I would expect an Organic or Health Food shop to sell exclusively ORGANIC items.

Also, when we got there, soaking wet at quarter to six, the staff were already letting down the shutters and made us feel quite uncomfortable for coming in "so late" to do our shopping (they gave us looks and didn't smile or anything, in fact they didn't say anything at all).

I must say I expected more from this place given that the Archie Brown's café, which was closed already unfortunately, has got such a good reputation.

Pros: wide range of products
Cons: stocks non-organic items, unfriendly service, short opening hours

Healthfood Shop and Cafe

Not only is it an excellent healthfood shop, with very knowledgeable and friendly staff, but they also have a fantastic veggie/vegan cafe upstairs - everything made on the premises, lovely fresh produce, and a relaxed & comfy place to be.
