“Where it all started . . .”
Reviewed November 11, 2012

This is where the Whole Foods revolution began, and it's a trip (and worth the trip) to visit their downtown headquarters location. It's food heaven: food to buy, food to eat, food to gawk at. Be sure to go around mealtime and try out one of their numerous cafe/restaurant areas in the store, where you can get everything from barbecue to fine seafood. We had lunch at the seafood area, and I watched the young chef lovingly prepare fresh scallops and crab cakes that were as good as any I've had at the finest seafood restaurants in the country. I know that sounds like hyperbole, but give it a try: you won't have the fine dining experience in terms of ambiance (far from it), but you will nonetheless have truly outstanding food.

“WOW!”
Reviewed November 8, 2012

I don't know why all grocery stores cannnot achieve what WHOLE FOODS has. It is always stocked and very clean. I especially like the prepackaged salads and the bakery. A little pricey, but worth it.

“Organic at its best”
Reviewed November 5, 2012

The food is natural, organic, plentiful and delicious. While shopping take the time to dine in on their well prepared array of dishes. The prices are a little high but the quality justifies the cost.

“Great healthy fresh selection”
Reviewed October 25, 2012

I shop here all the time for the best organic foods. I can depend on the products to be of top quality as well as to not contain unhealthily ingredients.
