    Parking is above the store instead of underground. Access via Vernon Street.

    Clean and convenient! Prices for soup and to go food is pricey. They're starting to sell imperfect foods!

    One of the biggest Whole Foods around. It used to be a car dealership and it's a historic building which is why it keeps a cool/different exterior.

    Whole Foods is nice and fancy, they've got Acme Bread and loads of diet friendly foods and fancy stuff you usually can't find, but they also exploit prison labor and are kinda just awful.

    The beauty/health section and coffee bean selection is really good!! Much bigger and more product than both Berkeley locations.

    Think of it like a giant horse shoe layout. Turn left, grab the dry stuff, cleaning. As it bends you'll see dairy & booze. Finally there's the butcher and fruits & veggies and prepared stuff.

    This store is massive. Great produce and meat. But go elsewhere for staples like tp and paper towels, unless you insist on hand woven by vegan monks.

    For lunch, the best bang for your buck here is the pasta bar. A bowl full of pasta, your choice of marinara, alfredo, or pesto sauce, and either meatballs or sauteed vegetables for $8.

    If the registers are crowded, go to the coffee bar register. No one is there usually and they will ring up stuff from all parts of the store.

    Traffic on Sunday nights is very heavy. To avoid the lines for the lower lot, bike or walk to the store. If you drive, approach the store from Lee or Perkins to Vernon Street & park in the upper lot.
