Love, love, love it

I really, really wish the messy, overpriced health food store in my neighborhood would take some lessons from the Co-Op - this is a veg*n shopper's paradise.
There is an amazing selection of things that are nearly impossible to find in smaller cities, and the produce is much fresher than anything sold near my house. The co-op is spotlessly clean and neatly organized, and although it's small, there is a parking lot. The staff are friendly, helpful, and very knowledgeable about their products. And compared to other stores in SoCal that cater to green/healthy/plant-based diets, the Co-Op is very, very easy on the wallet.
Best of all is the upstairs deli - fresh, healthy food, perfectly prepared, and it's all delicious (and vegan!). If you are in the area on a weekend morning, do not miss brunch. I can't eat mushrooms, so I was thrilled to finally be able to order vegan biscuits and gravy for brunch (the Co-Op makes theirs with tempeh).
I'm on the road so much that I rarely make it to Ocean Beach, but when I do, I will be back...for more biscuits and gravy!
Great selection, Amazing staff, All veggie
