Good, with a couple of caveats. - Edit

A decent and fairly inexpensive veg store conveniently located close to the subway. Overall, a good choice, especially if you live anywhere near.

I'll start with the positives:
The special highlight for me are the two large refrigerators jam-packed with tofu, various mock meats, sausages and cheeses, some of which (the Vego brand in particular) are a godsend. They also have several freezers with all kinds of dumplings, pel'meni, pizzas and many other goodies. The nuts they sell are tasty and their mushroom hummus is simply majestic.
The staff is overall friendly and will readily help you find what you're looking for or share their personal favourites.

Now for some inevitable negatives:
Some of the food they have is close or past expiration date (e.g. a bottle of kombucha I bought there turned out to be 1 month overdue and flat), so make sure you check the dates before buying.
I also didn't like that they don't itemize your receipt. Instead, they'll just do it the old-fashioned way, adding up all the numbers with a calculator and giving you the grand total.

Definitely worth checking out if you live in the North-West district. If not, there might be some better options.

Pros: wide selection of vegan cheeses & meats, there's a "freebie basket" with expired foods, they also have an online store

Cons: some things they sell are near expired, the receipts are not itemized, fruit and vegetable selection is limited & pricey
