They advertise that they will put sandwiches on gluten free bread and burgers but in reality they will sometimes refuse to do it. The whole foods brand gluten free bread is terrible if it's not toasted and disintegrates, the soy sauce for the sushi has wheat in it. But they do sell the glutino bread which is actually good and can be eaten without toasting it but they don't use that for the sandwiches.

I hate coming here because it’s so big. You would think they would have gobs of gf stuff, but they have little and it is spread out everywhere and side by side with gluten counterparts. Please keep my gf stuff AWAY from the gluten stuff. I spend way too much time trying to find everything, and I feel like compared to Sprouts or Natural Grocers that they have the least knowledge employees and the HIGHEST prices. I also would never eat something from their lunch area because it’s a mess. No way I'm chancing that.

Don’t go out of your way thinking they will have GF food. It’s slim pickings. Among the fewest grocery options I’ve seen in a Whole Foods.

Got GF cupcakes in the bakery section and they were dry. Definitely would not get them again.

Good for GF groceries. Would be nice if they specified whether their prepared foods and salad bar are GF but they don’t.
