I didn't begin shopping here until I became vegan. When you first walk in it appears to be a bit crowded in space, as everything right there is pretty close together. But things spread out once you get past the bakery section. My personal favorites are their vegan cookies (different varieties), Fabe's vegan chocolate chip cookies (SO soft and chewy), Whole Foods' vegan chocolate raspberry parfait, their vegan brownies, and the lemon raspberry cake from Chicago Diner. I also love the Coco Mousse (that may not be the correct name) cake and ordered a whole one for my birthday last year... THAT was pricey, but better than nothing.
In the fresh food section my favorites include their vegan mashed potatoes, vegan "meat"loaf, and the BBQ Vegan Burger (made from seitan) is to DIE for!!! I put it in foil and on the grill over the last 4th of July and Labor Day holidays and it was SCRUMPTIOUS!!
The shelves are always nicely stocked and the workers have always been pleasant and helpful. The location is good but with all the construction going on in the area right now, it could a task getting to it, unless you know the area well.
many vegan options, good hours: opens early & closes late
