Although not perfect, the Natural Pantry offers a great salad bar option for the area. A filling meal is expensive, and groceries are commensurate with the area. For a special splurge I like to load up at the salad bar and eat to my heart's content, though it's quite pricey to do that. The store offers a good selection of vegan products, though the deli selection is lacking for vegans. I love that the store is locally owned, as opposed to a big national chain offering similar options. Quinoa salad and brown rice were offered at the salad bar last time I was there, and a marinated tofu and lots of vegetables were available. The vegan soup was a bean tortilla soup, which didn't appeal to me on the day I was there. but people said it was good. All in all its exciting to partake in the salad bar, but it's a little lacking for a vegan, and very expensive.
Cons: Expensive, Few, if any, vegan deli options, No vegan salad dressing
