A little funky but cool and a great salad bar!

The interior is somewhat dated and a little rundown looking but not in a bad way! The staff were very friendly and helpful. I really liked the salad bar - great selection.

When I don't have time to cook, and especially when I don't have time to eat, this place saves the day. We live just 4 blocks away, and thank gosh because we come here everyday to pick up everything from milk to dinner to paper towels. Yes, it's incredibly pricey, but the also welcome you with berry tastings and are... More

This is a nice WF but compared with some of the other ones-- WF Los Altos for example, it is a store that has fewer choices being a smaller store, needs to be remodeled ,but service is excellent!

This neighborly location is where my wife and I get our veggie shopping. It's WF's original California location. The people are nice and their products, superb. They recently remodeled their self-service/sandwich/burrito area. Go for a visit!

A really good WF outlet,although a bit smaller than some others. But service is excellent, the meat and fish offerings quite fresh. You can always trust WF and whether the products are organic as labeled.

Whole Foods is a convenient, full service market that caters to the local residents in downtown Palo Alto. The staff is friendly, always ready to offer assistance and extremely courteous. It is a pleasure to have such a well-stocked, mostly organic food market in the area.
