When entering Vita Volta you will be hit by the smell of organic stores, a smell I personally enjoy. Your attention will also be captured by a colourful scene of products you might not find in a regular shop. Indeed, Vita volta is a neighbourhood organic shop, which makes me dream a bit every time I go. It is luckily a bit more pricy than a regular supermarket which restrains my desire to buy much more than I need. You will find fresh products including bread, vegetables, and fruits which are local most of the time. In the array of dry products, you will also find some specialties of other countries, which makes you wonder about other food cultures.

A nice additional feature is a couple of tables outside the store which enable customers to take a coffee in the sun. One can also get tempted by one of the sweet treats they offer. They sometimes have a poppy seeds cake that I personally enjoy.

Finally, Vita volta is situated at an intersection of two very calm streets. The area is residential, with beautiful houses and gardens. The loudest noise might come from the children playing in the street, or from the church fluntern (Kirche Fluntern) located 500 meters away. If you make it to Vita volta for your groceries, I would definitely recommend making a detour to the church, where you have an unhindered view of the city.
