In Seattle, it is quite trendy to be vegetarian, as much if not more so than in Santa Cruz, and most of the hip eateries attack with vegan pride. Some good places to eat (pardon me if I don’t remember the streets they are on): * Mae’s Cafe: Cowlicious. Cinnamon rolls, huge pancakes, everything you could want for breakfast. Get your hair cut across the street at Rudy’s, they’ve got a nice selection of magazines, even Playboy. * Sunlight Cafe: Vegan friendly, they’ve got a wicked “lemon tahini” sauce/dressing, and make a mean “deluxe heuvos rancheros.” * Bamboo Shoot: Vegan friendly, and fully vegetarian, Chinese food. Get their Mandarin Chicken, it isn’t chicken, but tastes better than any chicken you’ve had, and a Buddha Basket. Very tasty, pleasant service, and they even give you good chopsticks instead of those cheap little wooden things. * Hines Public Market Coffee (aka Emily’s Coffee Shop): excellent coffee made by cute girls with tattoos. Tell Emily I sent you. * Stuff Cafe: A crazy coffee shop in the Fremont area, packed with trinkets and oddities from around the world, mostly for sale. * Home Espresso Repair: Right down the street from Mae’s and Rudy’s, they fix coffee machines and also make a mean cup of coffee at a nice price. * Gordito’s: A little Mexican place, family owned and operated, they have around seven kids who all work there. They serve hefty portions, and taste great. * Gordo’s: Just went here for the milkshakes, which were good and came in a variety of flavors. They didn’t have an option to make them extra thick, but they were worth the price anyway. Family owned and operated as well, for over 40 years. * Paggliaci Pizza: Nothing too special about their pizza, but they deliver until around 3am. * Rosita’s: Mexican restaurant with excellent service, near Greenlake.
I’m jetting off to Seattle until the 23rd, I’ll likely get a chance to go online while I am there, but if you need to get in touch with me, the best way will be to shoot me an email, contact info.
