Everything is locally produced, fresh seafood on certain days, as are their baked goods. So have to be there on those days, or shortly thereafter to get fresh bread.
Great coffee, but often sold out often. Very helpful but need to anticipate a bit more efficiently peak season demands.

If you are staying in the area, you must go to the Co-op---it's a microcosm of Belfast town. The food is great and guaranteed to be both expensive and nutritious. No fake anything, no additives in anything. People watching here is just as fun as checking out the unique and inventive food offerings. It is a fully stocked grocery store (all natural and eco-conscious, many local products) plus a deli counter with small eat-in area serving soups, sandwiches, salads, coffee. Beer and wine selection is good, vegetables and fruits are beautiful, and baked goods are seriously healthy and tasty. If you need to stock your rental kitchen with basics, go to the Hannaford's store on the outskirts of town. But if you want to experience Belfast and Eat Consciously, go to the Co-op.

The food is good, however is tries to hard to be "local". Presentation could be improved. The dinning area is too cramped for people with mobility issues. The staff are friendly.

Such a great coop!! What a treat to find this adorable cafe inside. The woman who helped us at the counter was so awesome. She was friendly, helpful, and even remembered our names on our way out! The food was fantastic - I got a piece of quiche, one of the best quiches I've ever tasted. My significant other had the breakfast burrito which was also fantastic.

Delightful experience - we can't wait to go back! Coops are the best!

It carries many locally produced foods. You can find meats and cheeses from local farms, jams, cookies, milks from New England's producers, a good selection of wines, a very good selection of herbs for infusions, teas, organic products, homeopathic and natural remedies. There's a cafeteria and simple restaurant where they offer a variety of dishes, no table service, wi-fi free. It's small, go early or expect standing in line.
