Best WFM around! - Edit

I frequent this Whole Foods Market a lot and although, like any WFM, it's easy to leave here spending a small fortune, there are a couple vegan secrets most people miss and I thought to share.
The first is pizza Thursdays, where you can get a full vegan pizza with a variety of options for $10. If you like pizza with Daiya, this is for you, although the quality of the crust varies from time to time.
The second is the 5 for $5 deal. Tucked just between the pizza counter and the raw food bar is a small section where you can get 5 items for $5 and all are always vegan. This is great if you like to eat healthy & simple (add chili if you need flavor). These usually include 3 cold & 2 hot items, usually a raw salad, a veggie dish, a grain dish, a legume dish, and another salad or cold cooked veg dish.
Third is that at the other end of the store is the "Vegan Grill" which is listed separately on HappyCow. You get a salad or a sandwich with a side for $5.99. They have about 10 choices, all vegan. (even though the sign on the kale salad says honey, I've been told it's untrue and there is no honey).
Also of mention is the all vegan food section in the pay-by-weight food which on Wed is cheaper by a couple $. Any finally, the burrito bar offers a Gardein or Beyond Meat option, and the $4.99 one is usually a ton of food.
I vote this my favorite WFM, been to dozens of them!

Pros: Many Vegan Options, Inexpensive Options, Huge Store

Standard Whole Foods - Edit

Pretty regular, but it was for sure one of the bigger stores in the area. I thought the neighborhood was a bit seedy and dumpy.

Seems like maybe you didn't look around this store much. It's very different from other WFM, especially for vegans. Give it another try if you're in the area.

Of course you know what "whole foods" is about, but this location has some special beer selections as well as vegan donuts in the bakery!

Super Size Store and Food Court - Edit

I've shopped and eaten at this Whole Foods Market location many times and am updating my review on HappyCow. It's a giant superstore with a very large food court.

THE FOOD area gets very busy at lunchtime and dinner time. Here you will find a sandwich bar, a tacos and burritos bar, a sushi bar, extensive salad bar, hot foods bar with a separate section labeled as "vegan", a bread area, deli, a pizza and pasta section, a desserts bar, and a dedicated RAW FOOD area. There's also a coffee and smoothies and gelato ice cream area. The hot foods and salad bar are priced by weight at $7.99/pound (on Wednesdays it's $5.99/pound). The other areas have their own price fixes.

On most days you can get a burrito with choice of spicy faux chicken filling. there's always vegan pizza on offer, or you can order a large one all to yourself for $16.99.

Seating is provided inside and outside. For me, eating here is about convenience and selection. It is fast food and usually tasty.

GROCERY-WISE, you will find all the usual Whole Foods Market offering plus more... isles and isles of food and things. There's even a dedicated isle for RAW food stuff. Whole Foods prices are kinda expensive but the stuff is good. I usually try to buy sale items I like, or use coupons, or just pay the full price.

Pros: so many choices, vegan friendly

Cons: some things expensive

large open store - Edit

This store is nice and large with open spaces. There's a ton of stuff to check out. Unfortunately, they also have a large meat and seafood area which I avoided by cutting through the wine bar area (also large!). I found everything I was looking for, so the selection is great. The deli area includes many different stations including the usual pizza, sandwich and taqueria areas. They also had Indian, make your own pho and vegan bars. The vegan one even had a "tuna" ceviche which was quite good (had to buy it!). The parking lot was quite full after work, so it's quite a popular location!

Pros: large store, variety of deli counters, lots of vegan items

Cons: sells meat, dairy and eggs

Wow, just got back from this place! - Edit

This is clearly the best Whole Foods in the Westside area. The Mexican Food station has a sign that says "Vegan Chef at this station" I thought that was really cool! one thing that was missing was Vegan Kitchen take out meals that are at every other whole foods? Also, they have Vegan Sorbets clearly labeled in their sorbet stand.
