First Review by sarahmaru

good resource - Edit

Was visiting family in NW LA -- which is not a vegan friendly area. This was a great place to stock up on supplies i.e. tofurky, organic items. Stopping here gave me something substantive to eat over the weekend. They had a deli, but the soy cheese wasn't vegan.

great place for groceries and take-out items - Edit

Though Sunshine has a deli/cafe in back, I rarely eat there as a local. As other reviewers have noted, the atmosphere is not really conducive to dining in, although they do have good soup, and occasionally a raw vegan salad, complete with nuts, will pop up in the deli case, though it is not something one can find with any regularity.

It is really best for take-out, and one might have to peruse the aisles to round out the vegan offerings in the deli/cafe. On the grocery side, sometimes they are annoyingly out of the things I buy regularly. Fresh organic produce comes but once a week, Thursday, and runs out within a few days, but sometimes fruit and salad items persist.

Their health and beauty section is very extensive, and they are probably the only place in town with vegan/natural cosmetics, with reasonable, if not cheap, prices.

Basically, if you're a vegan just passing through town, I would recommend getting take out and a couple of other foods from the grocery section and having a picnic somewhere else.

Be careful what you order - Edit

The deli does offer soy cheese, but as it's not my favorite and I'm vegetarian, not vegan, I asked about the other cheese choices. All of their deli cheese that is made of dairy contains rennet. I figured a health food store that does somewhat cater to vegetarians would offer at least one dairy option without rennet. For the price of a sandwich here, you'd hope.

Pros: Location, can do grocery shopping during lunch

Cons: not enough options for vegetarians, price

great food, bad vibes - Edit

the cafe is in back of a fairly disorganized health food store. it's fabulous that this place even exists around here, but all the activity from the retail area made it hard to relax and enjoy the meal. the food (i had lentil soup) was fantastic, though the vegan options are slim. good for a quick bite or carry-out, but i wouldn't recommend sitting and eating there.

Pros: really good food, affordable

Cons: not great atmosphere, closed sundays, few vegan choices
