Definitely a hidden gem. Service is nice and they carry local items. Store is small but well stocked and prices range from fair to pricey, but given that it is organic, local health food store they have to charge a bit more. Great little gem. Prices are still affordable for organic, healthy food.

The pizza is also one of our favorites! A great compromise between thin NY & thicker Chicago style - with excellent fresh ingredients! enJoy!!
