Vegan cake/cupcake heaven! - Edit

As for the grocery section, it's great. My husband and I got some goodies that we don't see back home. And the prices are reasonable.

But the real treat is back at the cafe section. We got a small vegan chocolate cake with dried bananas, chocolate drizzle, and walnuts. My oh my, it was amazing! So we went back and bought a tiny carrot cake cupcake. It too was delicious. Everything is clearly marked with a V for vegan and ingredients are listed. I recommend checking out their cakes/cupcakes.

Pros: vegan cake!, plenty of parking

Loveys market - Edit

I go here a lot to get essential oils and vegan snacks. They have a wide variety of health items that are hard to find anywhere else around Wilmington, but I will say that their staff is very rude. They were restocking items and a lady (im guessing she was the manager) pushed me out of the way multiple times while I was trying to pick out my items. The employees seemed irritated by her as well. Occasionally one of the employees can be very friendly and helpful.

Pros: Vegan food, Health food items , Natural body care items

Cons: Rude employees, Employees act like they don't want you there , Can be overpriced

Do not go here, turn around and run away - Edit

my pregnant daughter went into the store just to get some cookies and the customer service that she received made me so mad I had to come on here and post a review. They treated her horribly, was rude to her, and the employees must either one hate the owner to the point where they want to destroy their store or 2 the owners treat the employees so bad that they just hate their job and stuck at a horrible min wage dead end facility. I feel bad for my daughter she was so distraught she wanted to call the news station, so I took it upon myself to write this review and let the owner know that their store is horrible, their employees are horrible and they must learn to organize their store and please make sure that your food is fresh and not days old, your food bar looks displeasing. NEVER GO HERE PEOPLE NEVER

Pros: none

Cons: customer service, old food, disorganize store

Juice Bar - Edit

Delicious, fast, fresh vegetable juice available in a "build your own juice" type format. I had my sister in law who's never had a fresh veggie juice try some and she's a convert now! The only bad thing I can say is that I wish they opened earlier!

Lovey's is very serviceable - Edit

I visited the store twice for some goods. It is mostly packaged goods and supplements, not really a full on Market. Wide selection, but no focus on local goods. I get the feeling that may take more time than they want to put to it. The cafe is big and has a decent salad bar with some hot items, but is a bit unattended too. Staff seemed nice but really acted only as employees which I guess they are. Get the feeling that management could give them more ownership which might encourage them to take more interest in customers. Buy into their savings card to be a member to save 10%!

Pros: Lots of supplements, big salad bar, lots of seating

Cons: nonchalant staff, few local goods, placeless shopping center location

Great! - Edit

We were staying out at Topsail and as vegans, knew the beach wasn't going to offer a whole lot of dining choices for us. Lovey's was a bit farther out from the island than we thought (about a half hour) but it was worth the drive. The grocery section was good but the hot/salad bar was great! More cheese than I would have liked, but still a ton of vegan options that were for the most part excellent. We had lunch and then packed a couple more to-go boxes to take back to our mini-fridge for dinner!

Pros: Vegan options, Salad/hot bar

Cons: Distance from the beach, Staff a little disinterested

Jeffrey 04 Nov 2009 - Hi gardener62, I found your review helpful. I love it when a health food store has a place you can sit down and eat.
