During our stay in Austin we came across the Whole Foods Market in downtown which was the mecca for natural and whole foods. As a UK resident I have never came across such a diverse and wide range of food and drink. As well as a shop there is a also a large buffet selection of food to help yourself... More

We stopped in their HQ in Austin Texas for their ready to eat sushi, salads and beer. Spot on. Why do fast food when you can get slow food done well? With great beer selection at this headquarters store. We will be back again and again. The satellite stores are generally good to. Yet, none compare to the corporate HQ.

Was excited about getting some items in the bakery. Got there and all I could smell was soap. They are selling soap in the bakery section. Grabbed one thing and left. Awful product placement.

Coming from the land of Wegmans, this Whole Foods could give them a run for their money. Very nice and clean store. A wine bar, beer bar, juice bar, very colorful salad bar and baked goods that were pretty and yummy! Definitely a feast of the eyes. I could have just stood and taken in all in for hours. Underground... More

I was headed to work one morning and wanted to find coffee. It was early and I was in a rush so I wanted early parking. Whole Foods was a great option! The coffee bar opens at 6AM! Highly recommend if you are in the neighborhood.

With all the choices to eat in Austin, we selected this Whole Foods. The quality of the food, the freshness, the selection and the location. There was so much to choose from it was hard to make a choice. I choose the vegetarian menu and had a delicious dish. My husband got the rotisserie chicken with organic vegetables. After we... More

I am most happy with the parking deck actually. It had red and green lights above every single space so you can see from a distance if there are any available spots. We need that in DC. Mostly at trader joes. Huge selection of ready to eats at this location, which is generally the only reason I go to whole... More

I love oysters and I discovered that I can select them at the seafood counter. They prepare them and put them on ice, then I can enjoy them at the seafood food counter. What a deal! I have returned to enjoy more oysters and plan on having more there.
