In June they're opening the first Whole Foods store in the UK just 15 minutes up the road from where I work. I'm quite excited and foresee some long lunchtimes ahead...
There's also an interesting article on Whole Foods about whether they're really 'green' & how they'll fare in the UK in the Guardian:

1. Whole Foods - The flagship is here and it is a wonderful place to go for
dinner or lunch but plan on taking a while. First you have to wander through
and look at all the various prepared food bars scattered through the store -
the roasted nut bar, the seafood bar, the barbecue bar and the soup bar.
Then there is the restaurant section that includes a pasta bar, a noodle
bar, a sushi bar, a raw foods bar, a big salad bar, and an "international"
bar that features a variety of cuisines that changes. I'm sure I'm
forgetting something. It is an experience. The patio is wonderful and they
have live music on some evenings on the upstairs patio. If your friend is a
foodie, tell her/him to get a light snack before going and plan on spending
several hours here. It is also possible to sample your way through without
actually buying dinner ~grin~.

I hope this helps!
