First Review by RalphieNader

hopeful it will become more vegan-friendly again - Edit

I used to love this place. And I really hope to love it again. But in the last couple of years, while the rest of the world seems to have become more vegan-friendly, the Chapel Hill Whole Foods has become less and less so. Which hardly makes sense to me, since so many other Whole Foods are incredibly vegan-friendly. They have removed so much from the salad and hot bar that was vegan. Now there are no vegan breakfast options at all left - no veggie meats, no tofu scramble, nothing. The standby oatmeal is still there, I guess. They have even pulled a lot of vegan popular items from the shelves that you can find at regular grocery stores. They even dropped the pretty regular vegan baked food options. I am not sure why - but it's such a bummer.

Would love to change this review some day.

Pros: the veggie mock chicken salad is still great.

Cons: Least vegan-friendly Whole Foods I have been to

My go-to place - Edit

Always has delicious vegan options in the hot bar, salad bar and deli. On work days, I can run by and get a quick healthy lunch. At the hot bar, there are always at least 3 vegan protein options, sometimes more (other local WF sometimes have zero options so this is a huge plus). They use local produce and have their own GF bakery. I have eaten here since it was Wellspring back in the 70's and even through all the expansions have found it a warm, inviting and healthy place to take a pause.

Pros: Always vegan options, Happy employees , Quality food (sensitive stomach knows)

Cons: A little pricey

Great vegan options! - Edit

Whole Foods has great vegan options, and they are even good for omnivores seeking meat raised slightly more ethically. The CEO is a vegan, so I'm confident in his commitment to provide great vegan food and to animal welfare a priority (as much as it can be for a place that sells animal products).

Their hot/salad bar is great, and their prepared foods have lots of vegan options.

This, along with Weaver Street Co-op and Trader Joes, completes an amazing trifecta of vegan-friendly grocery shopping!
