Enjoyed being able to shop at a place with allergy free foods in mind. Easy for those with diets free from gluten, dairy, egg, and more. They have a cafe that's small and they prepare the items in their kitchen and they don't have dedicated kitchen space but the items on the shelves are easy to find and plenty of... More

I love this place. It is one of the best kept secrets in Atlanta. It reminds me of the early days when being a vegetarian and a foodie was not popular. A small store and restaurant. Truly nothing fancy but vegan and vegetarian food that I truly love. The vegetarian chili is one of the best. Plain simple and good.... More

Rainbow Restaurant is inside Rainbow Foods natural foods supermarket. Used to be, there was service in the little well-kept back room in the store. These days it's a total do-it-yourself deal. You get your foods, pay for them up front and then head to the little eating room and enjoy. There is water, silverware and a microwave to heat your... More

I am eating a more plant-based diet these days and was looking for a market that carried nondairy cheese. (Is that an oxymoron?) After googling "best tasting nondairy cheese" I discovered that one of the recommendations, Gaiya, is sold at Rainbow. After checking out their website I realized they have a little restaurant, hot bar and carry tons of cold... More

This wonderful natural foods store has a small area for dining. A variety of delicious foods are available in their hot/cold food bar. Food was very healthy and delicious. I ate here several times when I was visiting Decatur for a week.

Not much I can eat here. Great tastes but not my idea of healthy. Cheese, noodles, all kinds of temptations. Be careful if you avoid soy. They used texturized soy protein in some things, like vegan chili.

My go to spot in Decatur for a reasonable vegetarian meal with variety galore, pay by the ounce prices, and hot-cold buffet with excellent selection and healthy food options. Established 40 years ago and still owned by the founders, this Decatur icon of Health Food, Vitamins and Supplements is.... Rainbow Natural Foods Grocery! (the restaurant is located inside in the...

Great vegan/vegetarian food for a quick lunch while running errands or last minute dinner. They offer a hot and salad bar as well as many of those (and other) items in the refrigerated sections. Feel free to eat your meal in the section with tables after paying. Tasty single-portion desserts. Awesome grocery selection, too! You will always find something to... More

I went here yesterday to try their food and salad bar, and it was fantastic! All vegetarian and vegan food, prepared on the premises. This is not really up a restaurant, but a health food store with a food bar. No table service. and when I say health food store, this is a genuine old-school hippie health food store! I... More

I love catching lunch here when I can. The buffet selections are fantastic, and healthy. What more could you ask for, and all at a fair price. Unpretentious, good food you can feel good about eating.
