First Review by happyherbivore

What a great find - Edit

Stopped in while travelling though Montana hoping to find some organic vegetables as was noted on Happy Cow. Wow was I shocked at the size, quality and options this place had. After loading up on vegetables, I made my way to the prepared food / restaurant part of the store and was in vegan heaven. If I lived in Missoula I think I would eat here everyday!
The place was really busy but had the staff to manage it.

Pros: Abundent vegan options, Friendly staff and fast checkout

New deli is awesome, tons of vegan options! - Edit

Love the new renovations. You can now get vegan or vegetarian pizza by the slice for $2.50 everyday. They use Daiya cheese. The wok bowls are great and have very generous portions and can easily be made vegan. Full, fresh salad bar. Full espresso bar. Vegan alternatives for literally everything.

Pros: Vegan pizza by the slice, Diverse selection, knowledgeable staff

Vegan groceries, sandwiches, and baked goods - Edit

Good Food Store is an organic grocer, similar to Whole Foods, but with many more local options. You can find many familiar vegan brands: Enjoy Life, Earth Balance, Daiya, etc.

More importantly, Good Food Store is the only bakery in town that has a variety of vegan baked goods: banana bread, chocolate chip cookies, oatmeal raisin cookies, brownies, etc. All are clearly labeled "vegan."

At the deli you can get pre-made vegan sushi, make-your-own salad or sandwiches, or get a garden burger or Greek sandwich vegan (if you remove the cheese and sauce in the case of the Greek wrap). The deli also has one vegan potato salad (I think there is another potato salad that may not be vegan) and vegan samosas.

The hot bar has several vegan options each day, and generally always has rice and beans. WATCH OUT VEGANS: many of the vegetables, such as brussel sprouts and sweet potatoes are cooked in BUTTER and are not vegan, so you need to read the fine print at the hot bar. If it doesn't say "vegan" on it, it's not, even if it's a vegetable.

Rumor has it in Autumn 2014 they are adding a make-your-own pizza bar and a stir fry grill --- this will add many more vegan options for pizza and stir fry.

The Good Food Store is very vegan friendly, labels well, and actually makes vegan cookies. This puts them miles ahead of anyone else in Missoula! Open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.

Pros: variety, clear labeling, vegan baked goods

Cons: butter used widely in the hot bar, meat served side by side at the hot bar, vegan sandwiches are not cheaper

Great stop - Edit

This is, as others have put it, effectively "Whole Foods Montana". It's similarly stocked with everything a vegan needs (except perhaps low prices, though the prices were not super high, and some things were cheaper than Whole Foods), including yummy cookies, vegan banana bread (excellent) and hot foods. I had some amazing Lemon Tofu. Great stop.

This is the place.. - Edit

The Good Food Store has lots of vegan options, I don't think there's anything else like this in Missoula. Prepackaged items, baked goods, and food made to order. It can be pricey(in the same way that Whole Foods can be pricey), but it's worth it. Definitely worth going to

Pros: Huge, Friendly staff

Cons: Crowded, Expensive

Name says it - Edit

It's a more personal, localized Whole Foods. Everything from take-away prepared foods to earth-friendly products and staples like bulk items and other veggie oriented goodies are here. An emphasis is put on the selling of local produce and goods. Prices are very reasonable and there were many sale items.

Pros: Staff knowledge, A "find" in Missoula, Very good selection

Excellent Vegan Choices! - Edit

This store is very vegan-friendly. They offer prepackaged meals, plus they have a salad bar and deli bar with many vegan and vegetarian options. They also have tons of vegan baked good -- all about $1. I recommend the tofu salad, blueberry cake and brownie. Very good!

Pros: affordable
