Review: Whole Foods Post Oak for Lunch

Whole Foods Market
1700 Post Oak Blvd.
Suite 100
Houston, TX 77056
713.346.0537

First impressions:

  • Futuristic, underground, free parking garage with overhead lights to tell you where there is an available spot (street level is for 20 minute parking only)
  • Young professionals picking up lunch
  • They brew their own beer?!

The Bar at Whole Foods Post Oak

On my lunch menu:

  • White bean and kale soup (vegan) – Soup selection was good for your average soup eater. There are ingredients on all of the prepared foods and soups, including a “CONTAINS:” list… as in “Contains: wheat, soy, etc.”
  • Salad bar – Twenty-plus options for veggies and extras. Meat options were limited. Dressings are sourced from an Austin company.
  • Paleo chewy fudge cookies – I was pleasantly surprised to find some Paleo cookies in the bakery! They were chewy and fudgey and free of gluten and sugar! The same brand offered a banana nut muffin. Should I be worried that WF is already carrying a Paleo brand when I hope to someday make them one of my  venues? No! I’m thrilled! Wish there were more of them! There are some other gluten-free treats in the bakery, but like to include sugar as the first ingredient on the list. Waw waw.
  • Coconut milk latte – There aren’t many coffee places in these parts that carry coconut milk. The coffee bar is separate from the rest of the set up for easy get-in-and-get-out coffee pick-ups.

This place has everything you could ever want for lunch. Pizza, sandwiches, soups, salads, tacos, dim sum, sushi, hot food, cold food, prepared and stored in the fridge food. Everything. It’s a great place to come if you just need to pick up something quick. But if you have time for a beer, sit at their bar and order from the bar. They brew their own beer right there behind it! There’s also a huge dining area upstairs and a large patio out front if there’s nice weather (ha!).

A little Adele in the background… natural light coming in from the floor to ceiling windows… I’d say this was an over-all pretty laid back lunch spot in the heart of the bustling Galleria area. I’ll certainly return to try out all of the other things they have to offer.
