Health Food store with delicious hot bar about one block. Sure it's a little expensive, and the staff is at times a little super friendly, but it's high quality healthy food and goods. We love it!

Stock up on food. From the hot bar to the freezer to great produce to the pickles they have it all.. and their 365 Brand of goods is a quite reasonable value for the health conscious.

This is a good local spot for a drink and a burger. They've somehow figured out how to capture the feel of a dive bar while maintaining a nice restaurant.
