A great little grocery store

It was a little hard to find but the staff (owner?) was amazingly knowledgeable and had items that my wife had unsuccessfully looked for in much larger metro regions.

Out of towner

I visit Tbay 3 times a year and make it a point to shop here when I’m in town. Even though Halifax has lots of vegan options, Compass Foods carries this I just can’t get out east!

Pros: Fully vegan, Everything you could need in one place, Friendly, knowledgeable owner

Cons: No fresh produce

Amazing Variety

The best place to stock up on vegan goodies & snacks! So many options! Lots of special items too that I normally only can find in Whole Foods in the U.S. They also have fresh baked cookies which are delicious & “meet the alternative” sandwiches sold around lunch time!

Pros: LOTS of vegan options , Yummy vegan food to grab on the go, Nice atmosphere

Cons: None

So many options!

There are so many amazing plant based options here. From snacks to meals you can find fun new vegan things to try! I would love to see them start a bulk section to use less plastic ☺️

Awesome vegan grocery store!

Great place with lots of options and neat things to try. The only downside is that it can get expensive as many items are made by small independent companies and/or are imported. Can’t beat the selection though and the owners are very knowledgeable about their products.

Great selection

This all vegan grocery store has a HUGE selection of great products. I particularly enjoy the The Herbivorous Butcher line of foods they import. They also stock household items like cleansers, soaps, etc. Great layout, everything is easy to find. Definitely a great addition to the vegan community in Thunder Bay. They even host BBQs on the weekend where you can pick up a Beyond Meat Burger.... if that's your thing.

Pros: Clean, large, easy to find, great hours, Friendly, knowledgeable staff, EVERYTHING is vegan friendly in this store!!!

Cons: parking area is tight - but still manageable

Awesome selection

Thunder Bay is so lucky to have this shop! There is an amazing selection of vegan meats, cheeses and other packaged goodies some of which I haven’t even found in southern Ontario. They have other items too like shampoos and bamboo toothbrushes. They will be selling local produce soon too. Lovely folks own it, definitely go check this place out!
