We strive to serve the Los Alamos community the freshest, most healthy food possible. We start by taking the approach that we use mostly organic, certainly all natural, and when available local ingredients in all of our menu items.
Our selections range from breakfast burritos, rotisserie chicken and ribs, build-your-own sandwiches, fruit and veggie juices, three made from scratch soups each day, full salad bar, and an espresso bar. We have a full serve deli case with salads, entrees and other meal components, and in our grab ‘n’ go case, we offer salads, dips, desserts, olives, lunch/dinner burritos, boiled eggs, and ethnic foods.
We also feature an extensive menu of gluten free, vegan and vegetarian selections.

New Hot/Cold Bar
We are happy to announce that we recently purchased a new hot/cold bar for our deli. This larger hot/cold bar allowed us to increase the quantity and variety of salad bar items. We are also looking forward to growing into our hot bar and offering more grab-and-go items.
Drink To Your HealthFresh juices are a great and delicious way to include raw fruits and veggies in our diets. In the deli, our juices are made to order and prepared before your eyes. Here are some of the benefits these fresh ingredients offer:
Apples: While the saying "an apple a day keeps the doctor away," may be an exaggeration, apples earn much of their reputation Studies link the consumption of apples to a reduced risk of a variety of cancers, cardiovascular disease, asthma, and Type II diabetes. They are strong antioxidants and contain a number of phytochemicals, including quercetin (an anti-inflammatory).
Ginger: Ginger is known for calming a stomach and is beneficial for calming headaches. Instead of consuming ginger in a carbonated sugar drink, your stomach will thank you for adding some ginger in a fresh juice. If you are not sure how much you like the taste of raw ginger, ask us to make your first juice light on ginger.
Cucumber: Cucumber contains Vitamin C and caffeic acid, which help reduce swelling and inflammation.
Carrots: Fresh carrot juice tastes great with a bit of a sweet flavor and it is high in a variety of nutrients including beta-carotene, vitamin K, vitamin C, and potassium. The antioxidant properties make it a great way to balance the holiday treats to keep you feeling great.
Parsley: Parsley contains beta-carotene, vitamin C, and a number of phytochemicals with antioxidant properties. It also tastes great in carrot juice!
Here is our Juice Menu. You can place an order in the store or by phone.

What's New in the Deli?
We are thrilled to announce that we now have an assistant manager in the deli. Vanessa Liming has accepted the position as of late September. Vanessa has been with us since day one of the Co-op, and has amazed us with her fabulous dishes and computer savvy capabilities. To top it off, she's a roller derby queen! We are glad to be growing and have this opportunity to promote our staff from within. Go Vanessa!
Got chickens? Have a year round compost pile? The deli is looking for individuals who need quality kitchen/juicing scraps to pick up possibly on Mondays and Wednesdays. We have an ample supply and are looking to have regular, ongoing recipients for this good stuff. Please contact Emily or Vanessa in the deli.
We are bracing for the fact that the price of pork products will increase due to drought conditions. This will affect everything from the breakfast burritos to the sandwiches. We will keep our members and customers up to date on these increases as soon as we learn more from our vendors.
Summer Gazpacho Unveiled
Love soup, but feeling the heat of the New Mexico summer? Check out the deli’s summer gazpacho selections. Traditionally, gazpacho is an old soup with many theories of origin, but gazpacho is most widely known as the tomato-based vegetable soup that is served in the summer months as a cool and refreshing alternative to hot soups. Today, gazpacho comes in many varieties that include different base ingredients such as grapes, watermelon, parsley, avocados, cucumbers, meat stock and other ingredients. Your friendly neighborhood Co-op has a few selections available today; stop in and try something new!
The 411 On Alfonso Olives & Roasted Tomatoes
New in the deli Grab & Go section are Alfonso Olives and Roasted Tomatoes. Alfonso olives traditionally come from Peru and have a pleasant, but distinct, wine vinegar flavor. Normally dark in color, the olives pair well with summer sausage or hard salamis, perfect for a quick summer picnic. Also new in the deli Grab & Go section are roasted tomatoes. Similar to sun dried tomatoes, these are warmed gently to deepen the flavor and packed in olive oil with a hint of garlic. These tomatoes are perfect for quick summer meals: sprinkle with coarse salt and serve as an antipasto; simmer with onions, red wine and herbs for a flavorful tomato sauce; use as a pizza topping and toss your pizza right on the grill; chop and add to risotto; or top with your favorite soft cheese and drizzle with balsamic vinegar.
Stop by and check out the deli case for our new items and many of your favorite home cooked dishes.
