Review by lizette on May 28, 2006:
- The prepared foods at Whole Foods are wonderful - esp. the Indian food (delicious samosas, etc.). The ingredients are listed on every dish (it drives me nuts when delis/groceries don't do this), and there's a good selection of vegan food. A lot of people do eat inside (either upstairs or on the ground floor, near the windows/exit), but I don't really see why you would since Union Square Park is right across the street. (Get food, sit outside, people-watch...)
In addition to the prepared foods at the food bar, alot of the baked goods (to the left when you walk in) are vegan and labeled as such. In the food bar area, there's also a small stand with pre-packaged vegan cookies and other things (with a little "vegan" sign on it).
