    This Whole Foods is HUGE!!! There are little restaurants and even a wine bar here! Food price is reasonable and you can find almost everything you need! Check it out even if you're not buying anything

    This flagstore contains a seafood bar, a wine bar, a coffee bar, a chocolate bar, and a special cold room for beer etc. I am sitting at the seafood bar watching the chef cooking my monkfish!

    The Lamar Boulevard Whole Foods is HQ for a favorite health food outlet. Get some of the freshest fruit, veggies and fish in the city, and check-in often! Mayors receive a free cup of coffee 24/7!

    2 soft tacos with an assortment of tops for $6 is an amazing deal. Also, come visit the friendly staff at the Bowie BBQ in the back. Nice bar area with one flatscreen and some yummy BBQ. :-)

    The associates at the health section of the store are awesome. They are very helpful and attentive. If they don't have what you are looking for, they will recommend something that just might be better

    Love this place.. I am here a lot. But when I ordered my latte with regular milk I got my head chewed off because they were very confused about what that meant. To him regular is 2% milk!!

    Where to begin with this one? Take a stroll down beer alley and don't get mugged. Then observe the radical time and care taken at the bakery and cheese stations. Don't forget to grab a beer @thebar

    This 80,000-square-foot store is a site to behold. Sign up for cooking lessons; buy fresh Texas peaches, local Pure Luck Farm goat cheese, and Flat Creek Flat Creek Estate's "Super Texan" Sangiovese.

    Quite possibly my favorite place to eat in Austin. Nothing prepares you for the hot food bar and all of that deliciousness. Carrot ginger soup is to die for. Wish they would tweet daily soup offerings

    Anyone who visits Austin should see the Whole Foods flagship store. After all, it started here. All kinds of food, beer, natural beauty and health goods and tiny restaurants dot the headquarters.

    Looks like the renovations are finished now. Had the pizza which is now combined with the Pasta bar & hot food area. The personal pizza used to be $5 for 3 toppings but now cost 8 & wasn't as good.

    In produce department you can buy reusable mesh bags for your fruit and veg. Handy for shopping trips and reduces plastic waste. Plus you can wash your produce in them. What's more to love?

    Best breakfast tacos on spelt tortillas in Austin. So amazing. Excellent smoothie and juicebar flavors. Best raw-rood in Austin. Huge layout. Lots of vendors demo their products in person. What

    Go to the tiny wine bar that they have in the back and enjoy your time by talking to other people while having a sip on your wine. It is a place to visit once in a while.

    Their vegan "chicken" salad is without a doubt, AMAZING. After getting your breakfast here during SXSW, stick around... there are awesome things going on! Check do512.com for details!

    If you're walking to Amtrak do not follow google maps; go west on 5th south on baylor; cuts walk by 60%, nice when you're loaded. Caveat: no rail crossing 4 rollers but easy to cross 1 track

    You could probably come here everyday for a year and never eat the same thing. The salad bar, breakfast tacos, trail mix bar and "take what you need" spice rack are our favorites.

    Vegan options at the hot bar are limited. If you're also gluten free it's worse. I'm always disappointed when I come here. The employees are also rude and defensive if you ask for vegan gf items.

    The store is a mess right now in prepared food area. Under renovations. Not as much selection as normal. Went all the way to fish/sushi area & had a asian soup bowl & sat at sushi bar.

    The flagship store of this grocer has a convenient repair station should you experience a flat or other minor mishap on your bike. Grab a bite to eat or a drink once you’ve fixed your ride.

    The mothership. Any visit to Austin is not complete without a stop here. The juice/smoothie/gelato bar alone= unbelievable. Lots of covered parking. Austin: this is your Piazza Navona.

    This particular Whole Foods is straight up epic. Think of it as a Walmart Supercenter that lacks white trash and Tweetie Bird t-shirts. There is literally a wine bar in the store! It's nucking futs!

    Pick your own prawns out at the seafood counter and have them seasoned to your taste in a big Caesar salad. I like mine with extra crostini croutons and grated Parmesan cheese.

    Love the free snack bar set up for the kids by the customer service area! Be sure to let your little one stop by for a crispy rice bar or fresh piece of fruit!

    This grocery store is an experience all its own. Try a smoothie, sandwich, pizza, salad bar...and basically anything else you could be craving! Lots of options for special dietary needs too!

    Largest selection of #glutenfree products in Austin. Plus you can grab some of the "Health Starts Here" products in the store and items from the raw bar that are gluten-free!

    What does Whole Foods and www.getaround.com have in common? Both believe in sustainability and giving back to the communities in which they serve. Oh yes, and try the Williamsburg turkey soup!

    Their food truck is the worst. 30 min. wait in the heat, then they tell me they just forgot about me, no refund and offered me one of the dishes that wasn't picked up and sat there the whole time.

    The best view in town is on the back part of the roof, just past the playground. We encourage you to grab some food downstairs and catch a sunset over the city. Read more

    Everything I've tried here is good, except the sushi. Doesn't taste very fresh and has made myself and others sick. Go get one of their amazing tacos instead!

    Grab a half sandwich and soup for $5.50. Be sure to get a soup cup from the sandwich bar and have them price it or it's $3.99 for the soup alone!

    Belly up to 5th Street Seafood bar and dine on the Catch of the Day. Tilapia taco salad and salmon were both amazing.

    Come with absolutely no list and watch your shopping cart fill to bursting with things you didn't know you wanted. Check out the salad bar and their newly revamped bulk foods & produce sections. Nom.

    Alright y'all, I love Whole Foods, but if you're looking for an awesome vegan burrito, go somewhere else. They're a little skimpy on the ingredients and just a little meh.

    Grab a super fresh lunch at the 5th Street Seafood grill near the wine area...oh, and stop to taste some wine (on the house) while you are at it!

    The best deal in the store is the 2 for $5 taco special at the taco bar. If that's not your thing, go for the beef brisket sandwich, avail. at back of store.

    Get your paleo on with a chicken salad from the taco bar. $5.99 and loaded with whatever you want, $1.00 extra for guacamole. Ask for salad without tortilla bowl.

    Don't use the parking here. The parking garage is badly designed and the customers clueless on how to use it. The store itself is good if rather pleased with itself.

    Hit the “Mini Me” cheeses (all $3 or under) to make up a cheap, exciting cheese plate. We take ours on the plane ride home to SF!

    This is the flagship whole foods and enormous. Also a great place to park and check out nearby attractions such as the graffiti wall.

    One of the best places to find and buy beer in Austin. Plus, sample some new beers at the bar located right inside Whole Foods.

    Looking for a fantastic meal check out either North Side Trattoria or 5th Street Seafood - you can get an amazing meal at both!
