Why did you change the beans and rice from self serve to full serve? When we redesigned the department to provide more workspace for our employees, we had to make some sacrifices. We lost the hot well space that previously housed the beans and rice when we replaced the old salad bar with our beautiful new cold bar. Knowing that we would be adding a burrito... [read more]

This combo makes açaí a powerhouse of satisfying nutrition. We take the... [read more]

Wow, what an exciting process this has been! We appreciate all of the creative solutions that you must have come up with over the course of the last 8 days as you entered the store and found our deli closed. I spoke with many of you during that time and truly got a sense of how important the deli is to our community as a place for healthy and delicious... [read more]

Due to a more efficient ordering process and some technical difficulties that we cannot overcome, we have realized that when we reopen the deli after the remodel we will no longer be able to have our customers use pre-paid wheatgrass cards or our wheatgrass punch cards.  When we first implemented the pre-paid wheatgrass cards it was in response to customers having to...
