Vegetarian / Vegan | Wallingford, Seattle

Absolutely loved our experience! My mom and I went on Sunday night and it was amazing. We loved the spring/summer menu. Asparagus soup and the lasagna were definitely top favorites. It is definitely a special occasion night - for 2 people and 1 wine pairing after tip it was about $220 (TOTALLY WORTH IT!). I am just waiting for them to switch up the menu (maybe fall?) and come back to try what they have up next. HIGHLY recommended and so sad I waited so long to come in! I'm a vegetarian (not vegan) but if I could eat like that every day I would absolutely become vegan in a heartbeat! More

Discover Seattle

The iconic city tucked inside the Pacific northwest coast does see a lot of rain, but when the sun shines on Seattle, it dazzles. Don’t miss the chance to dine at one of the many waterfront restaurants serving oysters and Pacific-caught seafood. Take a stroll downtown and wander in and out of bookshops and bakeries. Arguably the birthplace of American coffee culture, there’s hardly a better place to enjoy leisurely lattes accompanied by hours of computing and the occasional pen and paper sketch.
