  • The long lines here will lead you to check in and leave tips on foursquare.
  • Great selection of organic products and great selection of sugar derivatives for people with diabetes. I did a dinner and made desserts using Stevia. -Ed Cotton, Top Chef

  • Slowest register lines, even the express ones... even after 10:30pm :(
  • Support your local farmers while getting your recommended daily fruit and veggie intake - 2 cups of each! Check out the fresh and delicious selection of locally grown foods downstairs.
  • Check out their indian food in the hot bar during the day. Just as good as some sit-down restaurants.
  • We're excited to have Whole Foods at this year's Brooklyn Pour craft beer festival, Oct. 6 at Skylight One Hanson in BK! We love their growlers and huge craft beer selection.
  • Easily the worst whole foods in Manhattan...always crowded with people who don't believe in watching where they are going.
  • Check out the cashiers; many of them look dead behind the eyes and/or ready to fall in front of a bus.
  • Great selection of vegetarian foods in the basement
  • Freelancers/mobile workers: get a seat up in the cafe next to the microwave to get an outlet. You might get cancer, but your devices will be charged!
  • Love the spice offerings at WF. Pick up some black cardamom, cinnamon and star anise for this Smoked Chocolate & Tequila Ice Cream. So, so tasty. Get the recipe on kitchenkonfidence.com.
  • Come for the salad bar, stay for the huge lines!
  • Huge organic variety.
  • Get the cheese grits at the breakfast buffet, super cheap, $1.29 for a small, $2.79 for a large. They are so tasty (and I'm from New England-- I'm not even supposed to like grits!!)
