We love that they support the community. They sponsored the annual Candler Park Easter Egg Hunt. My son and his 6-year-old classmate have their afterschool Friday "date" every week. The sandwiches are exceptional. The prices on bread from Holeman and Finch are so competitive, why would you even bother going anywhere else? Comparison: Baguettes $2.49 at CPM (from H&F bakery) and nice walk, the YDFM is $2.99, bigger but you have to get in car. Also you can pick up local resident, Kate Carter's Treehouse Milk. The cashew milk is a winner! Sit at the counter and watch a Turner Classic black and white on mute. You and fellow counter mates fill in the dialogue.
I am thoroughly impressed with the selection and, more importantly, the prices at Sprouts. They just opened last week and we stopped in for a quick visit to check it out. We weren't really intending to buy anything but the prices we so good, we left with a bagful of fruits, veggies and snacks. I know I'll be coming back here for more. My only concern is the parking and lot exit. I could see the driveway getting clogged and backed up. But that's the price we pay for getting such an amenity intown on such a small footprint. And I just love that it's not surrounded by acres of asphalt parking lot.
Trader Joe's is magical... When you walk through the doors, you're transported to a place where the food is good, good for you, and won't break the bank. I can't recall purchasing anything here that I hated. And even if I did hate it, I didn't spend a ton on it so whateves. I love shopping here. It makes me happy. Who says that about grocery shopping?? A Trader Joe's customer, that's who. And hello, they have cookie butter...COOKIE BUTTER. I think I'm gonna get some after I write this review. Parking is usually annoying in this lot, but I usually manage to get a good spot.
As most other whole foods, the food is wonderful: organic, fresh, top-quality, healthy and lots of variety- but prices are out of control. If you live in Atlanta, there are other natural food groceries and the farmer's market are cheaper. But if you live intown and are in a pinch, whole foods will work. Or if money isn't an issue. Their meats and cheese are amazing, and they have a large health/beauty section, as well as a stocked deli with fresh food that rivals anything in the area restaurants. Florist is great as well. Just don't look at the receipt and you'll be happy.
This is actually the first non-fuel Quik Trip location in the entire US. It's the perfect spot to grab some of your fave Quik Trip and fill 'er up in a whole new way. You can get a personal (customizable) pizza, sub (also made to order), hot dogs (yep, any way you want it), and more at the expanded QT Kitchens counter. You can also grab a cool beverage or any of your other convenience store needs. I'm sure those who work, live, and play downtown love having this option now!
I love to cook and it can be hard sometimes to find the things you need , but I can find just about everything here. The store is always clean and the workers are always helpful. They have an amazing seafood section and great choices. They have a salad bar and a hot food bar. All kinds of seasonings and spices. They have one of the best cheese section I have ever see . It's not hard to fall in love with Whole Foods because they have everything!
I'm so lucky to live near here, as they carry an awesome selection of vegetarian foods and cruelty-free products. Their bulk goods section is great. You can get an enormous bag of organic oatmeal for $2 or $3 - the same amount that you normally would have to purchase in a package for $6 or $7. They also have a lot of yummy pre-made vegan food. The only thing I don't like is that some, not all, of the staff is sllllooooowwww to check you out.
The owners of this shop are super nice, and they seem to really know and remember most of their customers. Surprisingly good wine and beer selection at reasonable prices. They also stock a lot of odds and ends that you might end up needing, but don't feel like a drive to a big store to get (like scissors). One star off for the price of the gas, though, which is slightly higher there than in some other nearby stations.
The Trader Joe's in Midtown can be crazy busy on the weekends, so keep that in mind. But if you manage to go during a less busy time, they offer such a great selection of affordable, sustainable, healthy food. And cheap, cheap wine. The staff are always friendly and seem truly happy to be there. Plus they make a great stop-off on the way to Piedmont Park across the street. A welcome addition to the midtown scene.
I shop here every day. Sometimes multiple times a day. They have a great sandwich counter (and you can order online!), cheese selections, hard to find gourmet ingredients (things like quince paste), excellent wine selection, growlers, and prepared grab 'n' go and sous vide foods. Staff is friendly, the music is great, -- and they sell fantastic gift baskets (if you want something specific or special just ask).
