Last night I popped into Odd Provisions, the cool new corner store from Room 11 alums Jess Woods and Rachel Mowrer at 11th and Lamont, and I really liked it. It's a one stop shop for a lot of things, and they have really good quality stuff.
They have a lot of produce, beer and wine, snacks, and lots of groceries from local and craft vendors, as well as nice frozen items, baked goods and in-house premade things like sandwiches and salads. There's also a lot of kitchen staples like olive oil, pasta and pasta sauce, and a lot more.
Woods said the premade sandwiches and salads have been popular, especially a pimento cheese sandwich that was selling so well they started selling just the pimento cheese separately. The baked goods are from Paisley Fig, which also makes them for Room 11 -- other things available were quiche, the pot de creme from Room 11, cheesecake and more. I plan to go back for one of those sandwiches soon.
I didn't snap a good photo of the produce but it looked pretty nice too, and there was a wide range of things, plus eggs and dairy items. They also have ice cream from Milk Cult -- remember them, they had a tasty coffee, breakfast sandwich and ice cream sandwich popup on Georgia Avenue a couple of years ago. It looks like they re-used some of the old refrigerators from the former tenant, Arthur's Grocery.
There was also a nice beer and wine selection, I picked up some Ghost White IPA from Three Stars. The beers ranged from six packs to bigger bottles of fancy craft beers, a lot of it local or from small breweries.
Woods said planned to start offering coffee in January, as well as possibly longer hours too. Currently they're open 11am-9pm.
It's definitely a neat, convenient spot, and they have a lot of what you're probably looking for. Also sounds like a good spot for a tasty to go lunch or dinner. They also have an online shop on their website.
