I could eat there every day! Chef Davey is a favorite. The only way to make it better would be to make it FREE!

Great store!! 12/17/2009

Everything is here. Unusual and hard to find veggies, great produce all around. Macrobiotic friendly, knowledgeable and supportive. I am not a local but I shop there whenever I am in the city or they will ship to my door also. Love this store!! more

Healthy Store and Cafe 9/9/2005

Essene market contains a wide selection of fresh vegetables, frozen foods, and traditional health food fare. The store also features a cafe area in the rear of the store. The menu varies daily but does have some "regular" menu items. You can also get freshly squeezed juice in several varieties. more

Keeping up with Whole Foods 8/17/2005

These guys have been there a long time, and I'm sure they're feeling the pinch from Whole Foods. Essene is not as inviting or comfortable, and can't match WF's selection of prepared foods. But there's a good selection of organic and health-conscious dry goods and groceries, and it's probably a little bit cheaper overall. more

Nice little grocery store 8/14/2005

Essene is a great store if you're looking specifically for organic and health food. It also has a nice section of ethnic condiments and such. I wouldn't use this as my primary grocery store because it doesn't have much in the way of staples, and it's pretty hit or miss whether they will have the dairy stuff in that I need. They have a little vegan cafeteria as well, which I haven't tried yet but it gets mixed reviews from my friends. They also have bulk spices so you can buy only what you need. more
