Friendly little shop

Posted on 06 / 29 / 2012

I had read about this place on happycow and stopped in here in June 2012. Here's my Health Works review.

This is a well-stocked little shop that stocks a varied selection of nutritional supplements and vitamins in addition to a small selection snack bars and foods. The food counter is right in the center of the space, and the menu is available on the back wall as well as on paper.

The food selection is not all veg but many veg items. I got the "in a hurry" deal - salsa topped brown rice and black beans - for takeaway. It was yummy and very cheap.

The owner is a friendly man originally from Indian who liked to chit chat.

Pros: inexpensive & quick

Best all-in-one Health Store and Lunch Venue

Posted on 04 / 05 / 2012

This unique little health supplement store is one of the best-kept secrets in Orange County. A huge selection of herbs and supplements, refreshing juices and smoothies, and delicious sandwiches, salads, and soups made with fresh and all natural ingredients. The lunch menu is comprised of mostly vegan or vegetarian items. The lentil soup and their brown rice are our favorites there, but pick anything on the menu - you just can't go wrong! My husband and I make it a point to visit once a week. The cafe is usually open for lunch until at least 4:30pm most days, but the store stays open much later. This a great place to get healthy takeout, considering that the location is fairly small and casual. While you're there you will probably get an education, or at least a few fun stories from "The Colonel," as the neighborhood knows him. He is a great natural health consultant. It's easy to miss this little store as it's located right alongside "Henry's Farmer's Market" at Plaza de La Paz, on the corner of Pacific Park and La Paz.
