    I just noticed that they got rid of the dedicated beer section (I think this happened a few months ago) to replace it with a coffee shop. They still have a big selection but no growlers anymore.

    good: veggie chips @ 1.99, bad: hearty veggie mix (batch I got was a stink bomb)

    for coffee-aficionados or coffee addicts that crave robust flavor--try the Pacific Rim blend (in the whole bean section)--organic and only $7.99/lb!

    Go to Whole Foods - LES and look at their beer shop on Houston and chrystie. 12pack of PBR = $12. score!

    Очереди дико заебали. За это объедаю их кулинарию и уношу как можно больше бесплатных приборов и кетчупа. Ибо не хуй!

    最初はお店の動線がややわかりにくいかもですね。買い物カゴは大きな正面入り口にしかありません。2階がイートイン席ですが、コーヒーは1階で買う必要があります。レジの並び順が電光掲示されますが、現地の人もよくわかっていない方がおられますね。

    Ótima opção para quem quer fugir do fast food. Há uma ótima diversidade de alimentos orgânicos, muitos já prontos para consumo, inclusive sucos e frutas frescas. O preço é ótimo!

    Världens roligaste mataffär. Färdigmaten man plockar ihop själv blir en helt ok lunch i en park i närheten. Och så får man inte missa öldelen av affären som har ALLT.
