Wonderful selection

Wonderful selection of healthy, organic foods. It's fun to wander the aisles and see what's available. However, it's expensive and crowded so it can be difficult to maneuver with little ones.

Super place to shop and eat a good meal! The prices are not cheap by any means but the quality appears to be very good, the selection and service are pretty good.

I couldn't believe this store. We had a ball just wandering around. They have everything you can imagine.

What a great Whole Foods Store! Went in there for lunch and could not decide what to get, there were so many choices. I had the barbecue, which was delicious and they had us try a few different items while in line. The short ribs seemed wonderful, but couldn't eat that much so I ordered the ground beef type barbecue,... More

Our entire family enjoys Whole Foods on a regular basis, but this location has something very special going for it. The downtown Austin vibe, laid back atmosphere, friendly people, and delicious are an irrestible combination. Check out the juice/smoothie bar. Try a Funky Monkey or a Strawberry Blonde. YUM!

Too crowded - lots of people to navigate - lots of choices which can be good or bad. I'm glad people love whole foods, and as a grocery store it's top notch - as a restaurant it is not.

Each time I enter WF it's my trip to Schlaraffenland. Get inspired, pulled away and drawn into the world of culinary delight, taste butts heaven and flavor galore. You name it they have it or can get it for you. The service is impecable. Love-love-love you.

Austin is the corporate hq for WFM. The flagship store is located on the first floor of the headquarters. It is their largest store and has several excellent dining areas, including Italian, Seafood, Sushi, Barbequelus many salad bars and sandwich counters. The vibe is incredible. Store is a tourist attraction for Austin. Especially like the wine bar and craft brew... More
