MOM’s Organic Market reopened their College Park store in the former REI spot, which means that it’s got way more space to showcase their goods! We stopped by the other day and have got plenty of pics to share – including thoughts on MOM’s Naked Lunch eatery, it’s Witches Brew Café and its PINBALL room! Yes, there’s an entire room at MOM’s filled with pinball machines – 29 to be precise (and more to come)!

As you enter, fresh produce is to your right and the Witches Brew Café is straight ahead. Nice being able to get a coffee right as you start your shopping expedition! (It’s worth noting that as before, they still offer free, smaller cups of coffee for customers (towards back of the store.))
After I made my way though as many aisles as I could with two rambunctious kiddos in tow, we made our way to the prized pinball room. Feast your eyes:
Make sure to bring a couple of dollar or five dollar bills as most machines cost $0.50; there is a change machine located inside the room. 👏 My youngest was a bit too short to be able to properly play without assistance, so afterwards I asked the manager if they’d consider buying a couple of step stools for the younger/shorter crew. He seemed really receptive so hopefully that will save some of you with young ones in tow from future meltdowns!
Naked Café is definitely going to be on one of my go-tos! Their menu is quite expansive, food was swiftly prepared and the service was terrific. After picking up my order, we made our way to the seating area by the windows to enjoy some delish, vegan cauliflower tacos (roasted cauliflower, seasoned chick peas, kale slaw, salsa verde and vegan crema). 🌮 (They’re also got burgers, juices, desserts, etc. Full menu here.)
There’s also a seating area by the pinball room.
On the food front, I noticed at least three, tall refrigerators specifically for frozen gluten-free food as well as an aisle for dry, gluten-free products. On the logistics side, they now have at least 5 cash registers, making check-out a breeze! And they still will carry your bags to your car for you should you desire (love this courtesy)!
OK – that’s what I’ve got from our quick jaunt there! Have you been yet? What did you see or like? Share below!
