San Jose is lucky to have one of the few Whole Foods locations in the North Florida area. It’s a foodie’s shopping experience like no other, with signature main dish creations available on the popular lunch buffet, and some hard to find organic selections, and in-house prepared baked goods and confections. The centrally located Target and Wal-Mart are just a few minutes away from any location in the San Jose area. Convenience is certainly a key draw for those living in San Jose.
High end restaurants, and smaller more eclectic international dining establishments have long since taken root in San Jose, because the local clientele are a crowd with discriminating tastes. From the upscale Stonewood Restaurant on Baymeadows Road just east of San Jose Boulevard, to the popular Carrabba’s grill, for example. And there are several local BBQ favorites like Bono’s, and many family owned smaller, more intimate dining choices for Korean, Indian, Middle Eastern delights, such as Hala’s restaurant and middle eastern market.
