THE SPA DOWSTAIRS IS REALLY GOOD AND THE PEOPLE WORKING THERE ARE SUPER NICE.
HAPPY HAVING THE GROCERY IN THE NEIGHBORHOOD!
Not somewhere I regularly shop but handy to have on our doorstep. It is pricey but then again it sells nice things. It has that classic Shoreditch vibe – bare brickwork and a cool clientele. Veg can be a bit iffy but lots of interesting things for the store cupboard. Good cafe and they do massage downstairs. I must admit I use the free cashpoint on their outside wall more often than I venture in. However if I just have to have an organic miso stock cube then this is the place I go.
Great selection of lovely quality food and a brilliant selection of wheat-free foods.
I find it expensive but I’d rather support this shop than one of the supermarkets.

Possibly London's first hipster supermarket, which alongside its top-notch selection of produce - including such niceties as Cawston's exquisite apple and ginger juice - will also sort you out with granny trolleys complete with a Damian Hirst-like spots design, oil burners and environmentally friendly toiletries.
The feel of the place reminds me of one of those stores you find in rich but liberal USA towns and although there's the obvious lack of special offers and deals that the main supermarkets offer, it's not ridiculously pricey here and they do stock an ideal range of products for those as sophisticated and urbane as I.
I rarely shop here as the prices are above and beyond what I can buy elsewhere for my staples, but I have to say the quality is always top notch.
More specifically the cafe in the back has plenty of excellent meat and veggie dishes of the best kind and are all home made, cooked up and served on the spot.
In my humble opinion they serve the BEST sandwiches in London and come highly recommended from this Qyper!
While I tend to buy most of my daily items from my next door market, when I’m wanting fish, a variety of milk substitutes, or specialty ingredients, The Grocery is my local “Whole Foods” type store.
The staff is friendly and helpful, and they are usually quite quick to help me find what I need and even provide me some information about how to use it.
I visit here frequently and always leave inspired to eat healthier and to cook something amazing. I love how browsing their shelves leaves me feeling inspired, though I often leave empty pocketed!
Back when the only organic shops you’d frequently come across were Planet Organic and Fresh and Wild, I stumbled across a new shop on Kingsland Road called The Grocery. As a typical Londoner who romanticises the idea of those shops with local farming village –sounding names, aged wooden floors and simple wholesome foods in baskets, I was immediately drawn inside. You get that fleeting sense of being in Hertfordshire or The Black Country, without having to bother venturing outside of the M25. So far, so perfect.
The prices are sadly similar to those of Fresh and Wild et al, so not very credit-crunch friendly, but they do have a great range of the kind of things I need each week, like afalfa, decent-looking, rich red tomatoes that don’t look anaemic like the ones in supermarkets, reassuringly muddy and generously sized heads of lettuce, quinoa and decent soy brands like Alpro and Bonsoy (you know there are some that taste like mud in a glass…why do that to a customer?!), a promising wine, beer and perry collection; and a wide range of good old English cheeses. They also have a cafe out at the back for you to relax in and read your Sunday paper.
A huge grocery store that does what it says on the tin. Tons of lovely organic products and a nice big selection of yummy cheeses. You can easily spend a while perusing the aisles here and more easily spend a whole heap of money on one meal!
They also have some lovely wines on offer and lots of fresh meat. I say fresh, I did once come home with what turned out to be not at all fresh chicken. They were happy to rectify it but it was a bit of a pain so do check before you leave!
All in all, top notch!
Great selection - especially the wines if you want to learn a thing or to about organicy speciality stuff. The staff are lovely and you can lose yourself for ages. The cafe out the back is lovely too. And they have a no charge cashpoint out the front…they’re not daft hey!
They get points for being within walking distance and stocking a wide variety of groceries, cleaning supplies and fresh veg and all of them are good for the environment. I haven’t tried the little cafe in the back, but you can also find the cafe’s sammies for take away in the refrigerated section.
I bought a tasty organic steak one day, bonus that it was reduced for quick sale. But twice now, I’ve walked out and realized once I got home that I was over-charged on my bill. I truly don’t believe they’re doing it on purpose, so just check your bill before you depart the store to ensure total satisfaction.
I’ve several times looked around here, then, being flat broke, gone out empty handed. Being a little richer this month I was at last able to buy… bliss! I came out with three things on the ‘I haven’t had that for ages’ list: Kallo tomato and herb stock cubes, chocolate soya desert and jar of barley miso (complete with instruction not to worry if stuff grew on the top!). Wonderful! Yes, the prices are not exactly cheap, but I’m still not exactly rich, and I found a few things…
The store is also lovely. Old white supporting columns, brick walls and woodblock floor. They have a little café area where apparently you can get a massage several days a week (I think it was £10 for 15 minutes). There was also a cat wandering about. Any place that has a cat gets extra points from me.
