It's similar to Whole Foods but bigger, and we received superb customer service in all departments. Felt like we were in Selfridge's of London (circa 1910) as depicted in the PBS show. Love it! And we got interviewed on camera about our opinions of the store, so we'll share the video when we find it.
If you're looking for that one ingredient you just can't find ... you'll likely be able to find it here. The store is amazing, and the selection is extensive (hence the name?) and varied (we even found Western Family brand cake box mixes.) Also, the displays are so pretty; food porn everywhere you look.
Here are a few of our favorite finds:
Quirky little books like this in the homegoods section:
I Knead My Mommy: And Other Poems by Kittens by Francesco Marciuliano
"A book of confessional poems about the triumphs, trials, and daily discoveries of being a kitten."
Produce - Bright & Beautiful:
Fresh and tidy. Look at these tubers and roots! I really have never seen this many different types of potatoes in one place.
Pate' & Charcuterie - Scrumptious
Now on to the bakery - Lovely
Then our checkout lady shared with us, "Have you seen the test kitchen upstairs?" No we haven't, and yes, we'll be back. Hopefully with our cookbook on your shelves and teaching a class about how to stuff cupcakes in your kitchen!
So stop by and see what they have. Take your girlfriends and visit the growler filling station or taste some wine. We plan to take our husbands back for date night. Enjoy!
