    This 80,000-square-foot store is a site to behold. Sign up for cooking lessons; buy fresh Texas peaches, local Pure Luck Farm goat cheese, and Flat Creek Flat Creek Estate's "Super Texan" Sangiovese.

    We're famous for our fabulous samples. Ask any team member if there's anything you'd like to try!
  • Greg Raaum

    The best deal in the store is the 2 for $5 taco special at the taco bar. If that's not your thing, go for the beef brisket sandwich, avail. at back of store.

    Two words - Breakfast Tacos!!!
  • Austin American-Statesman

    Anyone who visits Austin should see the Whole Foods flagship store. After all, it started here. All kinds of food, beer, natural beauty and health goods and tiny restaurants dot the headquarters.
  • Jordan Muela

    The pizza is so good! I would also try the sushi.
  • ecomagination

    Whole Food's 80,000 sq ft flagship store offers bike delivery to downtown Austin and personal shopping assistants. Check out what has been described as the Disneyland of grocery stores!
  • Do512

    Their vegan "chicken" salad is without a doubt, AMAZING. After getting your breakfast here during SXSW, stick around... there are awesome things going on! Check do512.com for details!
  • Craig Allen

    The Disneyland of grocery stores. Go for the food. Stay for the entertainment!
  • Homeless Bill

    I love this Whole Foods Market. It's hard to distinguish between the hipsters and the homeless.
  • Marc Yagjian

    beer alley is the place to get dark ale.
  • renee wahlheim

    was in awe my first time @Whole Foods in Austin! Spectacular

  • Michael Lynton

    Try a Big John cookie.
  • Marla Erwin

    Try the pistachio gelato at the gelato bar (between coffee and smoothie bars). Best ANYWHERE.
  • Austin 360

    The flagship store of this grocer has a convenient repair station should you experience a flat or other minor mishap on your bike. Grab a bite to eat or a drink once you’ve fixed your ride.
  • Chris Trew

    They have groceries here.
  • Dave Surgan

    Grab a breakfast burrito and check out all the prepared food. I hear the sushi is good too.
  • kimberly aguilera

    Grab a pair of Toms in the clothing section.

    Have a seat at the trattoria and get a huge plate of pasta and chicken with a glass of wine while you people watch.
  • Aaron Clay

    Go find a new lunch box and Whole foods downtown.
  • Rip Esselstyn

    the smoothie bar is awesome!
  • Jennifer

    One of the best places to find and buy beer in Austin. Plus, sample some new beers at the bar located right inside Whole Foods.
  • Michael Jones

    Can't beat their Italian Bistro!
  • ScioniQCity

    Raise your City iQ: The best view in town is on the back part of the roof, just past the playground. We encourage you to grab some food downstairs and catch a sunset over the city.
  • Margot Thornhill

    Get the BBQ - it's by the butcher counter. Also by the butcher counter, the chili/stew bar - get the cheese steak soup. It'd droolicious.
  • Kevin Burck

    Be sure to check in at HALF FOODS as well :) it's located...halfway through the store. :)
  • Tune Outhavong

    Go when you're hungry on the weekend and sample everything. You'll end up buying new, cool foods that you probably wouldn't have before.
  • Jordan Langdon

    Come with absolutely no list and watch your shopping cart fill to bursting with things you didn't know you wanted. Check out the salad bar and their newly revamped bulk foods & produce sections. Nom.
  • Brittany Blackmon

    Quite possibly my favorite place to eat in Austin. Nothing prepares you for the hot food bar and all of that deliciousness. Carrot ginger soup is to die for. Wish they would tweet daily soup offerings
  • adam lescalleet

    get the "veggie flash" from the raw bar back near the wine deparment. TASTY.
  • Chasiti Chambers

    Always clean, great Organic selection, plenty of recycle bins(glass, paper,aluminum), really cool rooftop hangout and they offer paper, plastic and eco bags : )
  • Evolution Diet

    Mmmm whole foods
  • Evan[Bu]

    This particular Whole Foods is straight up epic. Think of it as a Walmart Supercenter that lacks white trash and Tweetie Bird t-shirts. There is literally a wine bar in the store! It's nucking futs!

  • Kellan E

    the 'dillo costs $0.50, for a 2 hour pass, and runs every 10 minutes between SxSW and Whole Foods flagship. Healthy food meets Disneyland.

    Grab any bottle of wine or craft beer and belly up to the bar and order a cheese plate or get some BBQ and eat / drink at retail prices!

    You could probably come here everyday for a year and never eat the same thing. The salad bar, breakfast tacos, trail mix bar and "take what you need" spice rack are our favorites.

    The ice cream aisle has moved closer to the front of the store!
  • John Hanson

    Bring your Whole paycheck !

    Where to begin with this one? Take a stroll down beer alley and don't get mugged. Then observe the radical time and care taken at the bakery and cheese stations. Don't forget to grab a beer @thebar
  • Heather

    Everything is fantastic, but the Agua Frescas are stand outs. Pineapple Mint is the most refreshing.
  • George Tabares

    Great breakfast tacos, but have them separate the filling (in a cup) from the shell to prevent the whole thing from falling apart.
  • Paul Scott

    Santa Cruz lemonade varieties on sale - 4 for $5
  • Candice

    go to the bakery and get a slice of tres leches cake, make sure you get extra syrup if you order a whole one

    Taco cup is the best breakfast deal, also better cheaper coffee than Starbucks.
  • Andrew Sanderson

    Thursday is Baby Friday and also 3 topping $9.99 Brick-fired Pizza day.
  • Simon Dudley

    Don't use the parking here. The parking garage is badly designed and the customers clueless on how to use it. The store itself is good if rather pleased with itself.
  • Rachelle King

    Looking for a fantastic meal check out either North Side Trattoria or 5th Street Seafood - you can get an amazing meal at both!

    People walking through the store move like ADD zombies.

    Love the parking spot indicator lights! Can be so chaotic in the parking garage, so they're helpful.
  • Brent Gilmore

    Is it a requirement to park like a total douche bag at this particular Whole Foods? No one respects the lines, no one.
  • David J. Neff

    Notice the new parking sensors? Follow the electronic signs to find open spots on each floor.
  • José Dávila Soracco

    The local beer selection is amazing and the fridges are so cool
  • AzyxA

    Tree acquired!
  • Jennifer Reiney

    Looks like the renovations are finished now. Had the pizza which is now combined with the Pasta bar & hot food area. The personal pizza used to be $5 for 3 toppings but now cost 8 & wasn't as good.
  • Cash Edwards

    OMG so awful Whole Foods left the carts in the rain. They are sopping wet. Hey WF water and paper packaging? not great together!
  • Cassandra Schloser

    The store is a mess right now in prepared food area. Under renovations. Not as much selection as normal. Went all the way to fish/sushi area & had a asian soup bowl & sat at sushi bar.
  • Jordan Stone

    The good parking spots here are like you reach school. You're just not going to get into them.
  • Willem Spruijt

    Great place to go after a work-out.
  • Hannah Herzog

    Alright y'all, I love Whole Foods, but if you're looking for an awesome vegan burrito, go somewhere else. They're a little skimpy on the ingredients and just a little meh.
  • Jennifer Reiney

    A lot of remodeling of eating areas in progress. Nice it's being done without disturbance to customers.
  • Cassandra Schloser

    Love this place.. I am here a lot. But when I ordered my latte with regular milk I got my head chewed off because they were very confused about what that meant. To him regular is 2% milk!!

    Try the Breakfast - A little bit of everything. #vegan
  • Ariane Leverett

    Vegan options at the hot bar are limited. If you're also gluten free it's worse. I'm always disappointed when I come here. The employees are also rude and defensive if you ask for vegan gf items.
  • S C

    Flagship store is a MUST when in Austin. Definitely stroll through the well stocked beer fridge.
  • Suzanne Bennetr

    Don't get their breakfast tacos. So gross! You can get much better tacos elsewhere! Everything else= Amazballs.
  • Nauci

    leave it to the city of Austin to make even grocery shopping "weird " overpriced in my opinion but great quality
  • Leah Jones

    Come hungry! You'll want to grab lunch here at the several different restaurants inside!
  • Kate Ronkainen
