First Review by Angst

Fabulous and well priced - Edit

On reading the reviews on HappyCow on this place and whole foods over the other side of town. We went straight to Wholefoods. What a disappointment!!! Today we decided to try Piko because it was so close to where we are staying. I can confidently inform that Piko is far superior and even cheaper than Wholefoods. The reviews I read are a year old so I can only assume they are out of date. Large range of hot vegan pies available at counter in hot biz. Great cafe next door also called The Herb Centre.

Pros: Has a good range, Well priced

Nice selection. Cold staff. - Edit

Small place but very well-stocked. I could imagine this being my go-to grocery store if I lived here. Staff should lose some of that haughty attitude and could've been friendlier.

Pros: great selection

Cons: snooty staff

Most excellent. - Edit

I could get lost in here. Sometimes I do.
Not because it's big and confusing, but because there are things I've never seen before and I forget who I am for a bit whilst looking at them and imagining them in my mouth.

piko. - Edit

sure, they stock some good things here, especially the little bird organics range. sadly, every time i go in there i get the holier-than-thou vibe from the staff. it's quite irritating. i now take my business to a friendlier organic shop and buy my little bird stuff direct from little bird.

Pros: little bird organics

Great little organic food store - Edit

Don't miss the vegan pie warmer! There is a nice selection of HOT vegan pies. Look at the codes on the side of the pie warmer, it'll show you the markings on top of the pies and the shape, such as round with three lines, etc. We did the vegan gluten free potato aduki bean pie and it was amazing! Great bulk foods, too. Great walk from the center of town along the Avon.

Pros: vegan pies

The best wholefood store in Christchurch - Edit

This shop does stock some vegan food items. Not extensive, but the best I found in Christchurch. They stock a few types of tofu and a small range of veggie (some vegan) sosages, burgers type stuff. Plus a small range of organic fruit and veg.

Pros: good marinated tofu, vegan snakc bars and choccy

Cons: a bit out of the way
