Love TJ’s

I have an emotional bond to this TJs; it got me through a dark year of college living in the residence hall above it. However, I will be real— the produce is always in pretty poor condition and I wish they used their retail space to sell real food instead of their 18 million freezer meals. Lines are insane — they wrap around the store, all the way to the entrance if you go at 4-7 pm. There are 2 or 3 really hot guys that work there though.

Decent prices

Trader Joe's offers a lot of produce and healthier groceries at a decent price. The Upper Westside branch of Trader Joe's is bigger, but this branch is by no means small. The nearby Whole Foods has a wider selection, though the prices here tend to be better.

holy cow the lines are long

Has all the fine TJs essentials well stocked. But the lines are ridiculous, especially at rush times.

Good selection of vegan food!

I love visiting here, it's cheaper than wholefoods and has some great pre-made vegan wraps and salads, love the eggplant wrap! :)
Also trader Joes do Vegan chocolate chip cookies which are amazing when you need a quick treat! :)

Pros: Vegan friendly, Inexpensive

Great for shopping!

This store isn't as big as wholefoods BUT it gives you another option with a great selection of all the health stuff we all look for (and I have been told by Americans at much cheaper prices). We picked up some Clif bars on special for 99c whereas in other stores they were $2.50/$3 !!!!

I also like that they had a great selection in the chilled section, but also offered quite a bit of off the shelf' products too which can sometimes be hard to find.
