Casual dining and shopping
Posted on 08 / 20 / 2013
This is the third successful location for this store and cafe, with other locations in Shrewsbury and Ocean. The owner and staff are all kind and knowledgeable. As always, on this visit we started with a large juice or smoothie - there are many choices on an extensive juice bar menu. Next, we tried the grilled tofu salad, the baked tempeh, and the vegan soup of the day - mushroom barley. All were great but I'd go back for the mushroom soup alone. Presentation, taste, and creativity all come together in this casual grab and go cafe. There are tables in the front of the store. In terms of being a food store, this place is great. It carries most everything I need and has some fun additions - like the reasonably priced Tree of Life frozen food line. The organic frozen cherries, blueberries, broccoli, corn, etc. are all great. They stock lots of organic produce, have really good weekly sales on packaged goods, and sample out several products each day. Dean's gives back to the community by supporting the Somerset County Foodbank and the Cancer Support Community of NJ. The store also provides healthy cooking class series several times each year.
