• simple vegan pleasures: chaco canyon organic cafe

    chaco canyon cafe is a sweet little restaurant in seattle that’s 95% organic, and almost entirely vegan (they offer dairy milk for coffee). the menu is huge–they’ve got soups, salads, sandwiches, bowls, raw entrees, breakfast items, and even desserts. we popped in for lunch on our recent vacation to the pacific northwest, and were impressed with the cafe’s charm and delicious food.

    tofu scramble sandwich: turmeric seasoned tofu with onions, mushrooms and spinach, grilled on rye bread, with sprouts. served a la carte. optional soy cheese for additional charge.

    much to my delight, breakfast is served all day at chaco canyon, so we started off with a tofu scramble sandwich. it came on grilled rye bread and was topped with loads of tumeric tofu, onions, mushrooms, spinach, and sprouts. so freaking good. the tofu was perfectly flavored, and not too mushy. hot little nuggets of soy, just they way they should be. the vegetables were fresh, and the bread was warm and crispy. i’d definitely order this again.

    the basic bowl: brown rice or quinoa and black beans with either our peanut sauce or garlic tahini.

    next we shared what’s probably the most simple item on the menu, the basic bowl. this comes with brown rice or quinoa, black beans, and your choice of sauce. we ordered it with brown rice and tahini, and it was excellent. just so well prepared with soft sticky rice, plump beans, and creamy sauce. love, love, loved it.

    there were tons of vegan desserts to choose from as well, but we decided to pass on those since we were saving ourselves for mighty-o. next time i will definitely try out some of the cakes at chaco canyon though, as well as their vegan reuben made with field roast!

    inside, the cafe is super cute and cozy. you order at the counter, and there’s comfy booth seating where they bring you your food. oh, and they have BEER ON TAP. what’s not to love about chaco canyon?! i know i’ll be back.

  • you liked it? everytime i’ve eaten there, the food has been ridiculously mediocre.

  • @miel: i did! it was simple, but i loved it. was a nice change from all the other crazy vegan stuff i was eating in seattle.

  • Aww thank you so much 🙂 I’m so glad you pre-ordered.

    That tofu scramble sandwich is looking off the chain! I’m going out of town for a week starting Tuesday, but we need to dine it up soon!

  • The artichoke melt is the best sandwich there, imho.
    The fresh squeezed juices are fabulous.
    It’s a good place to get good, *healthy* vegan food for a change.

  • It looks good!! Healthy vegan stuff is sometimes not easy to find in LA.

  • The food looks good. Stuff I could make at home? Yeah sure, but still good. I sometimes get tired of all the vegan junk food out there, its refreshing to have something simple with no fake meat products or heavily processed garbage once in a while. 🙂
