The Whole Foods flagship store is a destination location in itself. The store is massive! As an acknowledged

It's nice but the reviews made it seem really special but actually it's pretty typical for a whole foods store. Maybe I'm jaded, but I was not really more impressed with this one vs any of them.

This is a must visit while in Austin. Great place for grabbing a healthy lunch and eating outside in the Texas sun.

Every possible entree and beverage you could want all under one roof. As always great, friendly staff. Plenty of tables in different areas. This place is quite a find right in the heart of such a fun city. Plenty of free parking, too.

My daughter took my wife and I up to Whole Foods and I thought it was just a grocery store! I found out that they have at least 5 different restaurants in the store! We all went to different places and we still got to sit together. The food is really fresh and the wait staff is fantastic and they... More

Since I search out WFM everywhere I go, I was amazed at Austin's local take on WFM. There were at least 6 different eating options with the best food, including different locations to each at multiple levels. Absolutely recommend trying this amazing "restaurant" option.

Where to begin. We love this Whole Foods. From the beer cooler with all the local craft beers. To the bakery & the juice bar. The place smells heavenly. Parking is a little weird but its Austin. One warning don't go on a Sunday. It appears Sunday's are the day all the UT students go grocery shopping.
