This is an excellent health food store; the staff members are extremely knowledgeable, courteous, patient, and congenial. The prices are usually far less than other health food stores. Also, the staff is always eager to help when one has questions. I have been very impressed with the variety of products and foods offered. they offer wonderful aromatherapy products, especially a blend called Peace Be Stll. It immediately addresses stress, anxiety, menopausal problems, and other issues without an side effects. It's wonderful!

The food bar is always stocked with tasty, nutritious meals. Most health food stores offer meals that are somewhat bland. Routinely, I have had to add seasonings to their selections. That has never been the case at Rainbow's Restaurant. Also, the prices for the meals are very reasonable and less expensive than at other health food restaurants.

All in all, it is wonderful!

Those of us in Decatur really appreciate having Rainbow around as an alternative to the bigger natural-foods stores. Their hot and bakery items, including vegan, are always great.

This isn't the biggest natural foods store, but it still has a pretty good selection. The staff are very helpful; so if you can't find what you're looking for, they'll get you what you need.

Rainbow Grocery is a legend around Atlanta, to be one of the few origianl Health Food stores. We first found out about the store,many years ago, through friends who were students at Emory, and we were still in our Birkenstocks.Originally it was the fresh squeezed juices and vitamins, that brought us here. Today there is lots of competition, but the personal service, the people who live what they sell, are outstanding. It's still one of our favorite luncheon destinations, with that great veggie and fruit bar. Love those creative salad combo's with Tamari/Sesame dressing. Woodstock generation is still alive!

Pros: ATL's Health Pioneer! Wonderful Luncheon Buffet!

Rainbow Groceries is the first and the best of the natural food stores that have popped up around Atlanta. Their vitamins & minerals section is staffed by exceedingly knowledgeable people, and their prepackaged foods are both reasonable and very tasty. You have to try Andy's Popcorn - you will become addicted. Their prices on their natural foods and vitamins and minerals are extraordinarily reasonable - much cheaper than Whole Foods or Garden of Eden. Also, if you want a Nalgene bottle without some big chain store's name on it - they are here. Give this place a try - you will definitely like it.

Rainbow Natural Foods is essentially an organic corner grocery store with a small cafe. They've been in business for a long time and the staff are very knowledgeable. I had questions regarding dietary supplements and they were able to steer me in the right direction. You can also buy groceries, teas, nuts, grains, and more. At their cafe, you can select prepared foods from their refrigerated deli section, or build your own meal with the hot bar and salad bar. Food from the hot bar and salad bar is sold by the pound. The plates are weighed after you've filled them with what you want. Beverages are available. On the day I was there, Spanakopita was on the hot bar along with another pie as well as some chili and soup. I had the Spanakopita and some brown rice. It was very tasty and the price was reasonable. I noticed at the lunch hour many people running in to buy takeout from the hot bar and salad bar. I found that impressive both because of the number of people and because some of them were coming in to buy for 3 or 4 people at a time. That tells me I am not alone in thinking this is a good place for lunch and shopping.

PROS: Has organic grocery basics, supplements and knowledgeable staff.
CONS: Somewhat limited stock variety due to store size.

Stepping into Rainbow Foods reminds you of what a health food store is supposed to be like. The smell, the "health food" daily specials back in the cafe, even the customers give off that aura. Rainbow Foods is located in the shopping center opposite Publix at the intersection of Clairmont and N. Decatur. I have been able to find the health foods and herbal supplements I have been looking for and have been impressed by the friendly staff. Part of the stores mystique unquestionably is the fact that it is located near Emory University and so it attracts a collegiate clientele (as well as professors).

The thing that stands out the most about Rainbow Natural Foods is that they offer a deli, something most organic/health food shops don't have. The variety is not too great inside of the store and the prices are a bit expensive considering the lack of selection, but the deli is great and there is also a supplement department in the store.

For those among us concerned about eating healthy, Rainbow Grocery offers a simple solution to buying quality organic and preservative-free food. Every aisle in the store is stocked with wholesome organic offerings. If you're just getting into eating organic or need to brush up, there's a large selection of books that offer advice and wisdom about whole foods and living. The staff is knowledgeable about the products they sell and can frequently recommend something to meet your needs. The small restaurant at the back is wildly popular and from the delicious smells drifting out, I'm not surprised! Selection is slightly above average, but the atmosphere is personal and friendly. Just be careful in the parking lot: at the busy intersection of North Decatur and Clairmont, it can get hairy around rush hour.

PROS: Knowledgeable staff, good selection, restaurant in the back
CONS: Parking lot can get hairy at times

This is one of the city's longest-lived vegetarian establishments, combining grocery store, supplement supply house, and a deli that provides a hot bar with vegetarian options. You may dine at a table or cover your selection and take it…
