    Great hot bar dining for special dietary restrictions! Our little allergic baby was born vegan .. So ET's is an easy fix for lunch !

    I live in LA now and lived in NYC for years; this is still one of my favorite stores for vegan-friendly groceries. Local tofu + beer; Miyoko's vegan cheese; an amazing hot bar. They set the bar high.

    My best guy friend loves one of the mini bottles of Almond Breeze in the drink cooler mixed with two of the RAW Protein single serve packets. Also, the Greens Supreme II juice is absolutely delicious.

    The tofu salad at the deli is amazing & only $4.99/lb! Also you can buy san pell soda by the case here. The hot bar is good but sometimes should be called the lukewarm bar.

    $3 off coupon for RAW Protein tubs right now! And the tubs are already on sale. Plus the little packets of hemp hearts are delicious on the go and added to yogurt!

    Love shopping and buying local - wish they'd get their costs down, easily a 20% premium over same products in other stores. No comparison online. Tim's deodorant - $7 in store, $7 for 6 pack on amazon

    The curried chicken salad wrap is fantastic. If they don't have one premade they can make you one- build your own wrap for only 5.99!

    Breakfast bar is 7.99/lb. it's not hard to fill your plate with bacon and eggs for $5. Free wifi for looking up the health benefits of a high fat diet: gratis.

    You must try Soy Delights Tofu Chicken Nuggets and don't forget the Vegan Ranch. Both are to die for. They sell out, go early.

    One of my go-to places for gluten-free food. They carry Rudi's bread, probably the best brand of gluten-free bread.

    If the parking lot is packed and crazy when you get there please please please follow the arrows. It's slightly annoying but really keeps congestion down.

    Okay, I get the whole healthy bit. But this place is seriously over priced. I bought these Chia seeds that retail for $2 less than the manufacturer in Richmond. That's 20% mark up. Got to a local mkt
