In the Philadelphia area, you can accomplish both at The Garden of Eden Natural 
Foods and
Country Kitchen just across the river in Mount Laurel, NJ.  It's on Rt. 73 just 
south of the 
NJ Turnpike.  The restaurant section is pretty informal (paper plates and 
plastic utensils)
but it's  good basic comfort food.  Their daily vegetarian platter (changes 
daily) is usually 
pretty good.  I haven't had dinner there, but eat lunch there frequently.  
Further down Rt. 73 
is Zagara's, a "gourmet" supermarket similar to the Fresh Field's chain that 
has several stores 
in the area.  They have a large selection of vegetarian and/or organic foods.
