So-so, overpriced, but some good choices

Posted on 08 / 28 / 2014

Like any other Whole Foods, it's an overpriced and somewhat greenwashed affair, with too much shiny stuff and not enough organics and, ironically, too many processed (i.e. *not* whole) foods.

But among the plentifully-stocked aisles there awesome good things to be found if one reads labels carefully.

The best thing about this location is that there's ample free parking, which is rare in downtown Oakland.

Pros: Free parking
Cons: Sells meat, and lots of junk, too, overpriced

Easy to find something you are in the mood for

Incredible variety here for a quick snack or a full meal. The variety includes salad bar, hot food bar tat always has vegetarian options with ingredient information, soup bar, trail mix bar where you can make your own snacky treat. Of course the hot and cold drink options are just as incredible. Good place to bring you non-vegetarian friends as there are so many options for all food preferences. They even have vegan desserts. Yum!

Pros: Variety, Self service
