Love this place. Whole Foods is an amazing mix between a great place for natural/organic groceries and a cafe. The food is always super yummy and the bakery section makes some DELICIOUS goodies from regular bad for you to gluten free to vegan options. They have a great beer and wine section and, one of my favorite parts, fresh pizza... More

The flagship store has much better food than the others...quality control is higher at the HQ. Excellent prepared foods and coffee. Lots of space outside to sit. Fantastic meats and produce and especially vegan options. Only downside is it gets waaay to crowded. I like to go really early, grab a breakfast taco and knock out my shopping for the... More

I love shopping at Whole Foods!! Keep in mind, I don't shop here everyday, but if you're planning a dinner for guests, or just something really fun to cook for yourself, this is the place to come. Great choices and friendly helpful staff who know their stuff. Go with an open mind and a companion and plan your dinner on... More

This is a great place to grab a bite to eat. They have free Wi-Fi, you can get your grocery shopping done, and they have lots of places to meet-up with friends. The food is good and you should try their Trattoria! Food is cooked fresh while you wait.

Great salad bars in the downtown and Domain locations for a quick meal or to build a salad for home.

I've been to Whole Foods on several occasions, whether it was to stop in at lunch time for the salad/food bars (remember it costs you on the weight of it), to buy special cuts of meat for dinner, or looking for that elusive fruit or vegetable to compliment my meal, it's a great place. Been to two of them now,... More

What a great place! I have traveled the world and found some really neat things in other countries then returned here and not been able to find them. Well, whole foods market has some of those items & they are close and convenient to home.
