    Protip: Pour over at the coffee bar is only $2! Single origin, local stuff (Ritual, Blue Bottle, etc.), or you can pick anything you want from the coffee aisle. Best enjoyed with a vegan donut.

    If quality soy chai and the best vegan donuts in town are not enough, how about a lounge with free unlimited wi–fi and a few power outlets? This place will easily support you through the day. Read more

    Vegan pizza by the slice! The kale salad, cabbage crunch, and toasted cous cous are all winners, as is the sesame ginger dressing. The checkout line seems crazy long at lunch, but moves pretty fast.

    Impressive product selection for the SF/Cali newbie: pretty, appetising and fresh, though definitely not cheap. Own brand pretty competitive for staple products, however.

    Rudi's is the best gluten free bread! Have to search around the freezer section for it, though. Better than whole foods own brand, and the brick-like rice bread. Toast it, though!

    Their burrito bar is great, especially with all the veggie options. Also, a great beer bottle selection. They just opened the beer bar, Steep Brew SOMA.

    The best place to warm up your gastronomy if you are new to the place. You won't feel left out. And btw take the left line towards pay counters

    This WF prepares their egg dishes the best, not watery and overly rich. If you prefer a tofu scramble, this is also worth a try (for those who like their tofu in chewable sizes and not heavily salted.

    As of June 2013 the Wi-Fi here is served through Colubris Networks and is pretty fast until 5-6 customers start using laptops and the connection crumbles to dust.

    That bulk olive oil (Jovia) is high quality local, like a McEvoy Ranch. Apparently you can fill an old glass bottle, just get it rated at Cust service when u enter Sony only pay for the oil.

    Bacon is gone from the breakfast bar by 9:00--probably due to the high cost of bacon and Whole Foods really low margins.#notbeingsarcasticatall
