Wellspring is a great choice to stop and grab a quick lunch or dinner in Durham. Located adjacent to the Duke Campus, Wellspring is happening place with both Duke students and locals. If you are traveling through Durham, this is a convenient location right off the freeway. They have everything you would expect from a Whole Foods market. I loved... More

Our family (2 adults and 2 children - 8 & 13) periodically eat dinner at Whole Foods when our fridge is empty and we want to eat fresh and practically a home cooked meal. Food is always fresh and tasty. We enjoy having the hot and salad bars available, pizza and soup options along with prepared salads. Always plenty to... More

I wish the store offered the selection of the one in Chapel Hill. The produce in particular is really weak. Very hard to get good potatoes that have not been chewed up by the machines. Hot foods are not very inspired. The people are pleasant. The people in the meat market in particular are really nice. The parking lot is... More

They always have a good breakfast - quiche, and some fruit, plus whatever else they have that day, maybe some thick sliced bacon. Scrumptious. My go-to for any meal when I'm in this part of durham and need something quick.

We go here often for take out for a healthy alternative to most take out. They have sushi (including quinoa instead of rice), pizza, a deli area with salads and mains (such as crab cakes and tofu items) as well as a mult buffet areas that sell items by the pound. I particularly like special ethnic choices that change frequently.... More

This Whole Foods near Duke University has a good restaurant, with lots of vegetarian and vegan choices. While I was disappointed in the relatively small number of tofu main entrees compared to other Whole Foods restaurants around the country, the ones they had in Durham were well-prepared and delicious. My favorite was the (imitation) chicken-fried tofu. There is a large... More

The best fresh baked cookies! Pizza is good, too. Did particularly care for the selection of food on the hot bar. Salad selection very good. All the employees working in the store are very friendly and helpful.
