Favorite Place - Edit

I work about ten minutes away from Orchard Grocer and end up getting lunch from there way too often. All of their deli food is amazing. I've eaten the Bowery breakfast sandwich more times than I want to know. It's the best vegan breakfast sandwich ever!! (Get the spicy mayo) Everyone who works there is super sweet. It does take a bit of time for sandwiches to be made, so if you're in a hurry, call ahead for pick up, and if not, pop into Mooshoes next door. Orchard has the best selection of vegan specialty groceries. They have some great cheese like the local Cheezehound and have an awesome selection of sweets. Also, their soft serve is amazing!!!

Bravo - Edit

This place is awesome! Great selection of dry goods, cheeses, proteins. Killer sandwich and salad menu! Soft serve vegan ice cream! Had the sandwich special with Korean BBQ ribs on chibata bread. Was a delight and the presentation in brown butcher paper was the cherry on the top! Plus, connected to the store is Moo Shoes, an all vegan shoe and accessory shop. If you haven't seen "vegan leather" before you are going to be really surprised! Can't wait to come back!!

Pros: delicious, grocery and restaurant combo

Cons: flawless

Great Sandwiches and Desserts - Edit

The prepared food is all great and reasonably priced.

Love The Bowery sandwich and the Pop Tarts from Isa Chandra's Modern Love.

Unfortunately, all the groceries are way overpriced.

I mean, I understand market forces and being a smaller store, etc., but everything's $1-$2 more than anywhere else.

I love the idea of an all vegan grocer and want to shop here, but Haymaker's is a better option.

Pros: Great prepared food.

Cons: Overpriced groceries.

One of my favorite places in the world - Edit

A vegan dream in such a tiny space! They have everything you can think of: vegan soft serve, vegan cheeses, vegan lox, vegan caviar, vegan honey, vegan meats... I could go on but I think you get the idea. The staff has always been friendly and informative. I just can't say enough good things about this delicious location. I am sort of glad I don't live closer because I would most definitely go broke if I could shop here everyday, it's bad enough that it's on my subway line.

Amazing cheese selection and delicious sandwiches - Edit

The store at Orchard Grocer has a relatively small but great selection of vegan, palm-oil free products, some of them difficult to find in other brick and mortar stores. The cheese selection is fantastic with many different brands, a lot of them from the NY area. The sandwiches are absolutely delicious, we tried the carrot lox bagel (the Edith) and the Bowery (breakfast sandwich) and were very impressed. Will definitely be returning.

Russ's kinder, gentler daughters - Edit

Recently open and actually attached to the Moo Shoe vegan footware store, Orchard Grocer is another hit! The shelves are full of a wide range of vegan groceries and snacks. There is a refrigerator case with cold beverages. But the very best thing is the deli counter in the back of the shop. Today I only purchased a container of carrot lox (looks just like the 'real' thing!) but intend to return so I can try the various sandwiches, etc. There are many GF options as well.

Pros: All vegan, GF Friendly, Great for take out and/or picnicking

I had a tune sandwich, it was great! They have allot of good stuff. I'll be back for sure.
Update: Came again 1 week later, had the Marlowe (Reuben sandwich), was amazing as well. This is one of my favorites places in New York for sure!

Pros: So many things to eat, and to buy home. All vegan
