The Youeni Foodstore on Old Northern Road focuses on healthy food. They lean towards the vegetarian and vegan crowd—going so far as having multiple milk options such as oat milk and almond milk for your coffee.
The appeal of the Foodstore is that you can start with some coffee, meet a friend to catch up, work, have a healthy lunch, and take a healthy beverage home. The feeling is rustic, and the friendly staff smile at you from behind the counter.
Fresh nuts, seeds, and spices awaken your taste buds, and you can even choose your favourite greens from the shelves behind the counter. If you need a hearty meal, they serve some of their best entrées in cast-iron skillets.
They draw beautiful art on your coffee, and their customized salads allow you to explore new foods. If you need that human connection, sit at the bar. If not, you can hide in the corner with your friend or partner.
