Traveling Vegan: Seattle, WA

Seattle is a beautiful and picturesque city. When the weather is nice, it's amazing city to walk around and see all the sights. Of which, there are many. While the vegan food scene is not the most expansive on the west coast, is definitely on the rise and has a few of the best vegan food items I've ever had. Here are the vegan hot spots we were able to enjoy while we were in The Emerald City.

Plum Bistro
1429 12th Ave.
Seattle, WA 98122
(206) 838-5333

Welcome to the home of the best vegan mac and cheese in the world! Get seconds! Get thirds! Order more and take it home! I think I have accurately expressed my love for the vegan mac and yease at Plum Bistro. We liked the food (mac and yease included) so much that we came back and ate brunch here again the next morning. The restaurant is small but beautiful and has something like a large glass garage door in the front so when the weather is nice the whole restaurant can be open air. Here is what we had.

pancakes with cinnamon butter, tofu scramble,apple sage sausage, breakfast potatoes

candied apples, maple syrup, maple butter, whipped sweet cream 



Cinnamon Works 
Pike Place Market
1530 Pike Pl.
Seattle, WA 98101
(206) 583-0085

Cinnamon Works is in historic and fun Pike Place Market. It's a little hard to find so I've included a picture of the sign below to help you locate it. We went first thing in the morning because we heard that all the best goodies are snatched up quickly. Though Cinnamon Works isn't all vegan they have plenty of vegan options which are clearly marked. We got there in time to grab the last two vegan cinnamon buns (not pictured) and the best vegan snickerdoodle I've ever had. Cinnamon Works is a must stop for vegan sweets in Seattle.


The Flying Apron
3510 Fremont Ave N
Seattle, WA  98103 
(206) 442-1115

The Flying Apron is Seattle's only gluten free and vegan bakery. It is down the street from The Fremont Troll in a very cute area of town. The bakery itself has a great menu of sweets and other food. Gluten free sweets are usually a hit or miss for me and the treats at The Flying Apron were no exception. Some of them were great and others missed the mark. I would suggest getting an array of different types of sweets to see which ones you like. I think it's a great place to stop when you're paying a visit to The Fremont Troll.

What is your favorite vegan spot in Seattle?


  1. I am so glad you enjoyed Seattle. There are so many more spots I want to tell you about (so you can hit then next time!)... Chaco Canyon is located in university village (near UW) and they offer some of the best, if not the best, vegan/raw vegan/glutenfree food in the city. Japonessa (just one block south of the market) has an array of vegan sushi rolls, razzis pizza in greenlake offers glutenfree and vegan pizza, and there are a few other vegan bakeries (wild flour bakery, fancy free bakery, nuflours, Olivia superfree) ... Some do not have a stand alone cafe, but list where they are sold online :) but isn't plum bistros Mac and Yease insane?! Crazy. Safeco field (Mariners stadium) also have a vegan hot dog stand (gf buns available)... And Tallulahs on north-east capitol hill offers many vegan items. Arayas Thai (spelling might be off) is 100% vegan/vegetarian. They are located in Madison park. And lastly Cafe Flora, Seattles first vegetarian/vegan restaurant....amazing for brunch... But expect a line :) cheers!

    1. Oh my. Thank you so much for all these great recommendations. I can't wait to get back up to Seattle so I can try some of them!

  2. But wait, there's more:
    Wayward Vegan
    Mighty-O Doughnuts
    Pizza Pi
    Seattle Cookie Counter

    1. Wow! Thanks! So many additional places to enjoy the next time I get up there.
