The Briar Patch is definitely a local favourite, with everything you'd hope a health food store / Co-op to carry, a banging Salad & hot food bar, incredible coffees, juices, and a la carte options at the deli, on top of being a hub within the community itself. A must if you're in the area.

The upscale health-food grocery store has a cheerful, sunny eating space where you can bring deli counter food and pastries, if you can't wait to get it home.

We got food for both breakfast and lunch there today. We ate our breakfast in the beautiful garden patio setting outside and there is plenty of seating inside. They have sandwiches, burritos, burgers, all made to order. There are soups, salads, smoothies, coffee drinks, and pastries/cookies. Everything we ate was wonderful. I especially liked the salmon burger on onion roll.... More

This place is a great place to pick up some organic and bulk items. It also had a great smoothie bar, deli, soups, salads, and other hot dishes. It is more expensive than other grocery stores, but the food quality is quite good. If you have a large car, or a car in general parking is difficult. Sometimes parking on... More
