great vibe, selection – With the influx of new grocery stores to the greater Pittsburgh region, I often overlook the East End Food Co-Op. Whenever I go back there, I always regret not having gone sooner! Although smaller than rival stores like Whole Foods or Trader Joes, the Co-Op has a couple features that set it apart from its competitors. Obviously, because it's a co-op, it's much easier for a customer to feel an authentic "buy in" to the shopping experience -- it's easy to believe that money spent there supports a vision of a local, community-based food system. Also, the bulk section selection easily beats other stores in the city. Although the Co-Op doesn't have as much shelf space, as long as it fills this bulk niche, I will make it a point to keep coming back!
Eat healthy, and actually fill up. – The Scene
A small cafeteria-style restaurant in the largest local health food store. Well-to-do suburbanites eat elbow-to-elbow with studded and pierced college students, all enjoying the vegetarian and vegan food. There is also a small outdoor eating area.
There are excellent hearty soups here, as well as a diverse salad bar. All foods are organic, and many are vegan. There are cold salads, as well as hot dishes that change on a daily basis. While the soups are a must in winter, the salad bar is most popular during the warmer months. There is also a range of baked goods, easily washed down with their strong, organic coffees.
If You Order One Thing
Make a selection the black bean vegetarian chili. It's a filling, wholesome meal, and it keeps the body going all day.
