decent hot food selection, horrifying clientele
This one has a lot of things that other whole foods don't have
Produce and seafood are the best here
Make your own salad!
Home of the worst people on earth.
Kitchen has more variety than usual WF.
Enter the garage on California St.
Parking may be difficult after noon, good place to shop for organic foods, I like the hot food bar there.
A whole lot of food
Super nice staff. Ask and right then and there, they'll slice a fruit for you to sample. Fresh bread is delivered before store even opens so stop by to pick up a loaf of acme's walnut levain.
Keep moving or get out of the way.
Groceries are over-priced, but prepared food looks yummy!
The coffee bar is downstairs, below the rest of the store. There's a separate entrance, or use the stairs.
The Golden Gate Sandwich toasted on Dutch crunch bread + guacamole makes my life complete
Pretty nice store within California str. area. Nice staff, wealthy and healthy choice.
6pm on Sunday is NOT the time to shop. 1/2 of San Francisco was there!
Crack kills wear underwear please
It's sooo hectic in there. Best times to during off times mid day
I always get a bunch of Luke's locals burritos
$10 per pound homemade cookies?! TOTALLY WORTH IT.
Woah, cashier Sarah D, you can't be that miserable, can you? What's your deal, you're not just horribly slow, but mean too.
Kombucha by GT on sale for $2.79
Great healthy food. Hand made rolls are delicious.
Come here before 10:30am for the breakfast bar. Solid breakfast sandwiches, eggs, and bread pudding.
My favorite food store in the world. I mean it.
Best floral department. I get all of my bouquets here!
Try the New York Style Cheesecake - Overly indulgent for grocery store bakery. Prepare to gain a pound.
I wanted more cheddar beer Kettle chips but there were none. They've also been out of quinoa bean salad for awhile :(
I prefer the location on haight.. They don't suspiciously follow you around the store there.
Caution when eating from the buffet-style food section. A small container can add up to $40. Avoid like the plague on weekends, lest you like getting hip checked for the last organic grape bunch.
Plug your nose as you walk by the worst smelling loading dock ever
If Gayle is working the registers, go to her! She is fast, efficient, accurate & fun!
Carmen's spicy vegan vermicelli on the cold bar is the BEST! I wish Pittsburgh Whole foods carried it!
This Whole Foods has a fabulous flower selection. Surprise someone with a beautiful bouquet delivered by a TaskRabbit, of couse.
Worst smelling loading dock in the history of bad smelling loading docks
Their busiest days are Sunday and Monday. Try to avoid shopping then if at all possible (for your own good).
Almost always crowded. Tight parking lot. But some damn fine products here.
Try Delverde's Pappardelle. This pasta is a large, flat noodle and ideal for rich hearty sauces. Pappardelle hasn't caught on in the U.S. but trust us, it's pretty delicious!
If you you shop here, and are interested in buying or selling real estate in San Francisco or Marin, text me (415) 298.9171 and I will treat you to coffee and bring my laptop.
Get real in the Whole Foods parking lot!
Not all whole foods carry the same things. This one has better wine selections than the one on Harrison in SOMA.
One of the cheaper places to find a great selection of kombucha!
Two Degrees bars are sold here! Buy a bar and give a medically formulated food pack to a hungry child. Is Good. Does Good.
Their sandwiches are basic, but pretty darn tasty! Add pre-packaged chips and a bottle of water for $1.
I love the ice cream and sorbet freezer. So many to choose from!
Try the Whole Foods Pizzas in the refrigerated section, across the sushi. A.FUCKING.MAZING taste!
Love WF produce. So beautiful. Pick up some Meyer lemons, butter, sugar and eggs for this Meyer Lemon Curd. Get the recipe on kitchenkonfidence.com. So easy and totes delish.
Drive here in a Prius. Tell everyone in the parking garage they can't drive. Watch people apologize to you. It's AMAZING. Prius is key.
