Though the food is rather expensive, it's good. The produce is excellent and the stock of everything, from teas to vitamins, to organ supplements is extensive. The comment that is' like a mini-Whole Foods is pretty accurate. There are aisles of healthy snack foods as well. Also, the staff are great... so helpful and know the stock. I wouldn't consider...

There are staff in every department to answer your questions. I have started adding healthy foods recommended by my doctors. I had to find Kefir Goat's Milk and had never heard of it. Someone at Mother's helped me find it. Then I asked someone else about sauerkraut and should it be the refrigerated kind or off the shelf. They had... More

Every major brand... More

With the expanded store, this is now a pleasure to shop. Wider isles and big increase in products. For me it's the deli and buffet bar that gets me to Mother's twice a week. Top of the list is there own Chili Rellenos, prepared almost every day. They are to die for. If they are not out on the hot... More

I went here because it was near Mother's grocery which has fresh but expensive produce. I ordered a half sandwich and chili. As the food was arriving, I was horrified I was going to have a vegetarian meal when I could have eaten at the In and Out Burger nearby. Surprisingly, the sandwich wasn't bad. I thought the chili had... More

If you're into a vegan organic lifestyle, then this is the place for you. It's not for me although the staff was very helpful if I needed anything.

The Sunrise special, 2 eggs, toast, rice or potatoes and coffee for $2.99 is a real deal. You can splurge and have a glass of fresh squeezed juice. Staff is friendly and attentive.
