Why Do So Many Foodies Hate Whole Foods?

Perhaps I'm ignorant but I love Whole Foods. I think it depends on the choices in your area. It can be very expensive, but there are less expensive options throughout the store. I think their produce is very good, I don't know why others are criticizing it. I don't live near a Wegmans or anything comparable. My other choices are Safeway or Giant. :( I am fortunate to live near a Trader Joe's, but that's not really a full-service grocery store. Due to the expense, I only go to Whole Foods occasionally. Sometimes that's the only place I can get certain items.

Child-friendly suggestions in Rehoboth area - also bakeries and groceries

Thank you so much. Yes, I think that was the bakery I was remembering in Lewes. It was just off Rt. 1. I'll check out your suggestions. We're here now and ate lunch at The PIg and Fish in Rehoboth on a friend's suggestion and liked it very much. FYI they have a kid's menu and a flatbread pizza that my son raved about. I had a crab cake sandwich and my partner had Asian salad topped with salmon and we were all very happy. They're very good at refilling your drink, which thrilled my son since we told him he could have one soda yesterday and it turned into 3. LOL

Child-friendly suggestions in Rehoboth area - also bakeries and groceries

I'll be visiting Rehoboth this week with our kids. We haven't stayed in Rehoboth before. I'm particularly interested in more healthy options, but tell me about any place you like. I'm also interested in good bakeries. I remember a really good one in Lewes that was kind of hidden. Also, where's the best place to shop for groceries? Thanks!

Good restaurants for kids in Philly Center City

My family is going to Philadelphia for a few days and we'll be staying near the museums on Benj. Franklin Pkwy. What are some good restaurants for kids in that area or close by? They're not adventurous eaters.
