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...

We recently visited with our vegetarian family to try a new place. Compared with other vegetarian restaurants we have tried, this was not great. The food was good, but a little expensive. As there are few options like this, it's a nice alternative.

I ate lunch at Chaco Canyon West Seattle yesterday. The restaurant was nice enough, the staff was rude (a woman) to quite nice (a man). My meal was a bowl FULL of brown rice dusted with tiny bits of pumpkin and a sauce. It was tasty enough but not so good that I would try to replicate it. Ever. My... More

I love this place: the lentil burgers are awesome! The pastries and cookies are great too. I go there every time my hubby and I are in Seattle.

I've had the Brunch with the Gluten Free French Toast and Potato Cakes. Yum! Other times I've been in I've tried muffins, cookies and cupcakes, everything has been scrumptious. I'm really picky about gluten free baked goods. I bake from scratch at home all the time (like I grind my own flours to make gluten free bread and muffins -... More

We greatly enjoyed our lunch which included the Moroccan Chickpea Salad, Carrot Ginger Soup w/ Rice and fresh squeezed juices. Everything was delicious with adventurous seasonings and ample portions. I love the casual atmosphere; the self-serve/self-bus aspect is fine with me. I’ll definitely be a repeat customer.

Great vegan restaurant! My husband and I went here on a recent visit to Seattle. Pros- they have soo many vegan options! wide variety on the menu, something for everyone (lentil soup is amazing, as well as the lemon cashew parfait. pretzels were good, but not "so amazing", as the menu states) perfect decor inside- very casual and unique great,...
