9 Beautifully Designed Online Food Stores

Beautifully Designed Online Food Stores

Working at Granify, we get introduced to many interesting online shops. We’ve seen thousands of stores that sell anything you can imagine. While many of them clearly place little emphasis on design, every once in awhile we spot a truly beautiful and unique design.

Today we’ve decided to share some of the most beautiful food sites we’ve seen because… well, we love food. We rummaged through the depths of the interwebs to find shops listed below – they are truly remarkable!


1) Murray’s Cheese

Murray's Cheese

If you’re a cheese lover, you’ll love this brand! Critics call it the world’s best cheese. Lucky for you, this Greenwich Village gem (since 1940) is available to those outside of New York too. The food photography alone makes this site droolingly delicious. Wait… is droolingly a word?

2) Goosebumps Pickles

Goosebumps Pickles

The Make Your Own Pickle feature makes interacting with this site feel like playing a game! Seriously take a look at this website, everything about it is so innovative and fun. We recommend just scrolling through the “Limited Edition” section, it’s like watching a little movie in action. So few websites do things as well as Goosebumps Pickles, it’s a nice feeling knowing that creative geniuses still exist out there (especially when it comes to the ecommerce world)!

3) Soup Peddler

Soup Peddler

The brand is simple: soup delivery by bike. The instructions are just as simple: use the lookup tool on the site and find the delivery day for your specific neighbourhood, make your choice of soup, leave an ice cooler on your porch (disregard if you’re ordering for a business), warm your food using the heating instructions, and share. The site is even more intriguing because it makes you love soup instantly, at least it did for us.

4) Asher’s Chocolate

Asher's Chocolate

They had us at chocolate covered chips! The Asher family has been making award-winning sweets since 1892, it has been passed down four generations. For those of you who are health conscious they have the largest (and most delicious, they claim) selection of sugar-free chocolate treats in the USA. The site itself is really easy to navigate through and the  products are beautifully displayed, well done!

 5) Le Maitre D’ & Sommelier

Le Maitre D' & Sommelier

They started as a bricks and mortar company in the mid 90′s in Montreal and now they’ve grown to become Canada’s no.1 online gourmet food store. They specialize in all things meat and seafood, perfect for this BBQ season! What we loved about this site is that they make meat look so flawless, even uncooked!

6) Dean & Deluca 

Dean & Deluca

If you haven’t heard of DEAN & DELUCA then you don’t know true gourmet food. They were the first to penetrate the gourmet food market in NYC and have rightfully earned the cultural status and global brand awareness they have. Every aspect of the D&D site, every image, every product just fit so well with the lifestyle, brand and look they wanted to portray.

7) Mouth

New York Mouth

Hand crafted, hand made, small-batched indie food. Can you really go wrong? Our favourite things about the website and the brand in general: the products are perfectly displayed, they offer monthly subscription clubs to all kinds of things (everything from cookies to pickles), and they give shoppers the chance to donate to food-related charities! Love, love, love this brand!

8) Marx Foods

Marx Foods

When they first started out, they were exclusive (how fancy). Their customers were the top 400 chefs in the states but now, this high-end gourmet food supplier is available to the home chefs too! The passion behind the business stems from the importance of bringing customers the most exciting new food products of tomorrow. Beautifully captured and organized product displays make this site so appealing.

9) Udi’s Gluten Free

Udi's Gluten Free

Gluten free everythaaang. Udi’s Gluten Free has become America’s number one shop for gluten free products. I think for all of you who are gluten intolerant, this site is a dream come true! They seriously have a great selection of products, the site is easy to navigate through, the photography is excellent and the colours work so well.

So there you have it, our 9 favourite online food stores.  Did we miss anyone?  Let us know in the comments!

  1. We think your selection judges only the Homepage. They all look pretty, and very english. But if I look at those stores, there catalog sites are rather poor. I would be interested how they convert. Check out http://www.oswald.ch. Besides the Homepage I think id challenges your selection quite a lot. On top of it it is much faster. Have a look.

      We used a weighted criteria, the home pages were weighted the most because if you don’t like the home page, you’ll never make it through to the product pages! We found the pages through simple searches and never found yours. And yes, we do seem to like the classic British look!
