I enjoyed a large helping at the buffet at the Food Bar in the Mall. Everything looked so good, I took more than I needed to eat but finished it all! Delicious, quick, simple food. Of particular note are the vegetable egg rolls and the roasted root veggies. Also, there were some nice prepared salads like three-bean and pickled veggies... More

This gem started with a farmer and an engineer and grew into a wonderful store full of healthy surprises. It is just a fun place to visit.

I am ready for them to be back at their old location- just easier in and out. As always fresh - clean and they work with local farms! I will always come for the food and groceries! I wish they brought back some of their friendlier staff that they use to have - the older women never smile and they... More

The people working there are nice and friendly and helpful and knowledgeable. I... More

This has the best salad bar in Wausau! The ingredients are fresh and organic. They included cheeses, olives, pickles, egg salad in addition to the many vegetables. There is also hot food which is hit or miss but that is based on my preferences. The salad is perfectly priced with my average being about $6. The baked goods are great... More

I'm here from Texas sharing essential oils with people and was looking for a place with healthy eating options (not always easy to find when traveling). I loved the store, great variety and quality for a small natural store. The hot food buffet definitely made my day. Delicious food, healthy choices, good variety and a great price. Friendly staff helped... More
