Lacking vegan food options - Edit

UPDATE 06/19/2017: The vegan hot food/deli options have almost all disappeared so, so, so disappointing.

UPDATE 9/21/2015: Sadly the cafe menu has completely changed and now serves meat/fish. There are still a few vegan items listed on the menu, main entrees include falafel fritters and avocado sandwich. Pretty disappointed.

The cafe inside "The Corner" is a must visit. The Vegan crabcakes are amazing. I've also tried the cauliflower 'cheesesteak' but was not very impressed, bread was very dry and daiya was barely melted. Store itself has tons of vegan, raw, gluten free items for sale. This includes local Maryland companies. You can make your own fresh orange juice in the produce isle - it is delicious! There is also an oil and vinegar dispenser available. Tons of bulk legumes, grains, coffee, pasta, etc. The prices are currently VERY reasonable because of the grand opening.

Tons of cafe options!! - Edit

Whole Foods must have heard the complaints because the vegan options at the deli were plentiful today.

one of the least-vegan friendly Whole Foods markets in the world - Edit

As time goes by the number of vegan options gets smaller and smaller. The vegan pizza, tofu scramble, and vegan hot bar options have all been eliminated. You may find an accidentally vegan option on the hot bar from time to time but it is very unlikely.

Vegan options that exist do include: muffins (blueberry, chocolate chip, cranberry), chocolate chip and ginger bread cookies, vegan fried avocado tacos (seasonably available at the Counter at Kitt. Restaurant), and vegan General Tsos chicken (available cold, by the pound, in the deli case)

Terrible Cafe for vegans, decent grocery section - Edit

From the out side, this was the coolest looking Whole Foods I have seen. I was already impressed. But then when I got in, I was just disappointed. The Fresh vegetable and fruit section is very small. Then you have a cheese bar right next to it stinking up the place. If yippy try to power through it, you will find a small tofu section but still a strong stink of cheese and now something else. Because on the other side of the Tofu is just a giant slaughter house display. Fish and farm animals dead stinking up the place even worse... Turning away from that in another corner of the store you will find the cafe. There was 0 vegan options in the 'deli' when I was there. Only real vegan options at the bar was the fruit bar. It was mostly all 'soul' food. Just fried chicken everywhere. I have never seen so much junk at a whole foods. Then at the bakery, there was one vegan option. A cranberry muffin. So the prepared options there were very disappointing.

The pre packaged processed foods were decent. Some standard frozen meals, decent bread selection. Cosmetics and boddy was pretty large though.

Butt, over all. Very disappointed. I did not know whole foods was now a soul food cafe. So gross...

Pros: Cool looking building

Cons: Stinky, Terrible Cafe, Not good for vegans (compared to other whole foods
