Great Downtown Lunch

If you're looking for variety for lunch, Whole Foods is the place to go. There's something for everyone, from a gigantic salad bar to pizza and sandwiches, tacos, a grill and international cuisine. Especially when it's a pay per pound system, things can add up fast. My favorite cost control measure is to get a pre-made sandwich. The Barton Springs, with turkey, fresh greens, brie cheese and fig jam, is perfectly satisfying and under $7.



Beautiful Store

This store is the location to visit - an absolutely beautiful store!1 If you have out of town visitors it is a great place to take them for a true taste of Austin!!

If you're a Whole Foods fan, a must see!

This is the MOTHER of all Whole Foods! Seriously! This is THE flagship store and is the largest of them all! You could make a good hour visit, if not more, to the store! The clothing and cosmetic areas alone are enough! And if you're hungry, there's plenty of options...prepackaged meals, carving stations, sandwich area, raw foods, coffee, and then the bars--salads, fruit and dessert, and hot food including international and comfort food. I must say the actual salad bar had a limited selection in comparison with Whole Foods in New York and Los Angeles.

The best of the best

The only drawback to Whole Foods is that it can be a little overwhelming...there is just so much excellent food. We are spoiled living one mile away. I never thought we would want to go to a grocery store to eat out several times per week!

You'll need a map or a tour guide

This store is incredible...they have an amazing variety of product, and though rather expensive, the quality is good. It's a great place to go...unless you actually need to grocery shop. Products are spread out so that there are multiple places to find meats, cheeses, produce, prepared foods...I found cheeses in at least three different places, so if you're looking for something specific, you may well have to hunt it down. The store also appears to have a large staff, several of whom wisked by carrying trays over their heads (and mine...glad they didn't drop them). A couple of employees working behind counters were helpful in their areas, but it generally appears that you're on your own. Might want to visit the bakery first so you can leave a trail of breadcrumbs.

healthy and fun

the prepared foods case, the new hot food self serve bar, and the self service salad bar make for great take out, but you can also have fun putting together your own meal on the go by exploring the bakery, fruit, cheese, and bulk item bins.
