Founded in 1980 in Austin, this mega-peddler of all-natural and organic produce and products (including health and beauty) has stores that are easily navigable and in certain instances pricey. Cost aside, the inventory gives preference to local wares and fare, obvious by all the laminated rectangles touting "LOCAL." Of course, if imported French butter is your thing, Whole Foods has it stocked too. Each department's staff is knowledgeable, chipper and willing to hold your hand when indecision strikes. For example, the cheesemongers will take all the time you need when putting together a cheese plate for a dinner party with your boss. Most departments also offer prepared items, so when you've spent an hour wandering the aisles in search of dinner's ingredients and come up empty, grab a dinner-for-two package.
Any upscale grocery store is bound to have a higher ratio of beautiful women than the city as a whole. And grocery stores in affluent areas also seem to draw a lot of good-looking ladies as well. So this Whole Foods location, with its pricey produce and absurd health products (we once espied gluten-free plates -- plates!), tends to draw ladies (and men, we suppose) who are not only health-conscious and therefore usually in great shape, but also affluent enough to have no need for a job...

The best part of shopping at this Whole Foods is that when you inevitably get hungry at the sight of all that food, all you have to do is mosey over to the bar once you've filled your cart.

The hot food bar offers a number of different things depending on the night, from home-style meat and mashed potatoes to Indian, Asian or North African. And once you've made... More »
Scones are funny. They're not doughnuts. A good scone has backbone. Scones are morning things. A scone needs to be fresh and hearty. But then, this is America. We don't want scones that taste English--you know, like a mouthful of baking soda. We want some sweets in there somewhere--raspberries, blueberries, cranberries. Give us a break. Something. Once in a while, we might even want a nice, white blanket of sugary icing on top. If the English don't like it, well, they can go eat... More »
Scones are funny. They're not doughnuts. A good scone has backbone. Scones are morning things. A scone needs to be fresh and hearty. But then, this is America. We don't want scones that taste English—you know, like a mouthful of baking soda. We want some sweets in there somewhere—raspberries, blueberries, cranberries. Give us a break. Something. Once in a while, we might even want a nice, white blanket of sugary icing on top. If the English don't like it, well, they can go eat their own kind of dry, dusty, bitter little scones. Anyway, Whole Foods has got it just right, and at $1.99 apiece, Whole Foods scones are an affordable treat in the morning. An American treat.
