First Review by condekedar

good options - Edit

like most of the whole foods around the country this has some good vegan options in the deli which are usually labeled. Sometimes reading the ingredient list is required. My favorite is the raw kale salad.

they usually have vegan baked goods as well. check the cookies, pies, and cakes. Sometimes things like the cherry pie are vegan even though they are not labeled. read the ingredients or ask a staff member for help.

Come here every time I'm in the cities - Edit

This Whole Foods is the larger one in the area (another one nearby in St. Paul is smaller). They don't serve coffee here to the best of my knowledge, and although they have hot to-go pizza did not have any vegan slices. However, I was happy to find frozen Tofutti pizza for the first time at this store. The prepared food section is a good size, with two cold and one hot tables. For the bakery made-in-store items in the glass case, I have not seen any vegan options and have checked back a few times. Of course, as any Whole Foods does, packaged vegan desserts are always available. For a person living in a more isolated part of Minnesota where good veggies are actually hard to find, I was delighted to see the large produce section. The supplement/vitamin/body products section is a few aisles, i.e. of relatively large size.

Cons: no coffee

I love this place. - Edit

They have a lot of frozen goods to choose from, as well as dried soup cups. Way better selection for vegetarians/vegans than any other grocery store.

Pros: lots to choose from

Cons: some things are hard to locate

Mediocre hot foods, good desserts - Edit

This Whole Foods has a somewhat mediocre hot foods section. It only has a few, bland-looking and tasting vegan dishes; their hot wok Asian area is a tad overpriced and also too processed-industrialized in its offerings (tofu teriyaki bowl, etc.).

However, they have at least three or four high quality vegan desserts, including vegan cheesecake from The Chicago Diner. This makes the place serviceable.

Parking is difficult as it's a small lot in a confusing, busy 3-way intersection.

Pros: Vegan desserts

Cons: Location, Mediocre cooked foods
