big store, lots of selection

5 Posted on 01 / 18 / 2013

One of the biggest whole foods I've been to, which makes the crowds tolerable. There are also vegan donuts daily at the bakery! The bulk aisle was recently renovated and now offers bulk vital wheat gluten and vegetarian chick'n broth powder. The bulk spice and tea section is also really great.

There are a lot of vegan specialty items (ice cream, milks, cheese, meats, candy) and are one of the only places to stock the big tubs of Earth Balance. They stock soy products from Hodo. In general there is also a better selection of other products (vinegars, oils, noodles, flours, etc) than at other WF.

Pros: great selection, vegan friendly, big store
Cons: crowded on weekends

More vegan-friendly than most WF salad/hot bars.

Of the many Whole Foods I have visited in at least 6 states + London, this is one of the most vegan-friendly ones I've been to. I'm told it's the second largest in the U.S. after the Austin store. First, the produce in the salad bar is organic, although not every item. Second, there are 3 hot foods bars: regular, international, and no added oils. There are many options for vegans in the hot and cold foods bars including tempeh and greens sauteed with no added oil (delicious), an Indian cauliflower dish, tabouli, and hummus (although I didn't see any pita bread). I wish they had a vegan salad dressing other than the balsamic vinegrette which contains sugar.

Like many of the Whole Foods in the Bay Area, this one offers a large selection of vegan donuts in the pastry section nearby. But the highlight of this store for me is the Cafe Gratitude within the store at the opposite end. (Toward the left rear.) The Cafe Gratitude which I will review is a must-visit!

Pros: Vegan-friendly, Wide Variety
Cons: Price

Great Selection

5 Posted on 01 / 24 / 2008

I can find almost anything I'm looking for here. From the obscure spice or seasoning to every vegan alternative on the market. Great produce section as well as bulk foods sections. LOTS of ready-to-eat foods and contains about 15 buffet tables with international cuisine. This store also has a gelato vendor, chinese food vendor, mexican food vendor, and sandwich/bbq vendor. This store is one of the largest Whole Foods in the Region and when it opened it was the largest on the West Coast. Also it has a bath/body/vitamin section where none of their products are tested on animals.

Pros: Hard to find items, Organic foods, Friendly, helpful staff
Cons: Large crowds
