A friend who lives in Seattle suggested we go for lunch. I could not have been more pleased, though had we been pressed for time it might not have been our best choice. I had a small serving of the Thai peanut bowl and wonder how large the large would have been for this was ample for lunch and had... More

Stopped for breakfast before leaving town. Best muffin I have ever eaten, and a very tasty berry smoothy. Also was impressed with business policies, such as you can buy an "extra" cup of coffee to be given to customer who needs a hand. Also a give what you can soup offering.

I've had a lot of smoothies in my day and Chaco canyon smoothies are delicious! they use agave nectar as sweetener and coconut rice milk to blend a think juicy smoothie. the smoothies are flavorful and you can taste each ingredient which is awesome! the atmosphere is nice and the service is friendly. the only downside is their large is...

The best restaurant in Seattle. It is vegetarian organic but the dishes taste like meat and look like meat and my meat eating friend didn't believe it was all vegetarian. The dishes are big portions and have a lot of great flavor, nothing bland

There's a sign that says be patient, slow food takes a while. I get that, and I can accept it. And even though I have waited 30 minutes for a salad and cold sandwich, the food has been pretty good. But waiting 25 minutes for a smoothie that requires no freshly prepared ingredients is just lazy service. As much as... More

This restaurant offers a 100% vegan organic menu. Although neither vegan nor vegetarian, we were attracted by the wide range of foods and the ethos and ambiance of the place. Meals came in full and half sized portions, so you can leave room for dessert - highly recommended - and my 6 foot, insatiable, meat eating son, who was initially... More

I've been here twice and loved it. Both times I got the option where you build your own bowl, selecting just what you want. I tried it two different ways, and both were really good—tasty, nourishing and satisfying. also had some vegan cheesecake, which was good, but not quite as delicious as the kind made with dairy cream cheese. Still,... More

The moment you step into this restaurant you get the cool Seattle hipster vibe. You order the food and then seat yourself. The menu is so extensive, there is something for everyone here. They have great options for kids too. Yes, its a little pricey, but the taste and quality of the food more than compensates for it. Since it... More

We have eaten here only once but will return. Husband had artichoke melt and I had veggie Reuben. Both were "very tasty" as the Iowans say. I added a large kale Caesar salad, and had enough to bring back to Portland for two big servings tonight. In other words, three large servings. The addition of tiny French fried onions zapped...
