    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.

    Don't go during commuting hours as the lines get VERY long! Also, if you have more than 10 items in the 10 items or less line, you will get yelled at.

    On the eastern corner of Whole Foods is a separate beer shop, with a large selection of import and craft beer. BYO growler to bring local draft beer back home, or just pick up a sixer of your choice.

    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。
