This Midtown organic grocery store sells vegetarian and vegan foods, including soups and kitchen staples. A Goodwells fan favorite is the store’s “Pocket Sandwich,” – a soy patty with tofu sauce, sprouts, tomato and cucumber slices.
"Some other favorites are our 'Avocado Delight' (a sandwich like the "Pocket Sandwich," minus the patty), steamed vegetables and brown rice, we make these tostadas with refried beans, onions, tomatoes, and a little bit of jalapenos and cheese that are very popular," according to Joshua Taylor, a Goodwells employee.
