1. Wayward Vegan Cafe
Waking up in Seattle is easy, even on a Monday because Seattle is known for its boutique coffee cafes. The problem is most of them use milk to get those tasty flavours. Milk is a big no to vegans, so the Wayward Vegan Cafe created a nice alternative to those coffee shops. Not only do they serve a great cup of coffee, free of milk and the perfect to start your day, you can also enjoy a complete vegan breakfast. Including menus items like waffles, breakfast burritos and tofu steak meal.

2.Pizza Pi Vegan Pizzeria
Pizza is like sex, even when it’s bad it’s still pretty good. Imagine eating a pizza without cheese though? Would it still be good? What would even be the point? Don’t worry, Vegan pizza is even better than extra cheesy meat lovers special at Dominos. Vegan’s don’t have to worry or miss out on scrumptious Seattle pizza. Pizza Pi Vegan Pizzeria is America’s oldest vegan pizzeria. This eatery focuses on using fresh ingredients and making every pie healthy and simple. Not only are these pizza’s meat and cheese-free, but they are also gluten-free. Celiacs rejoice, there is now the perfect pizza place for everyone. Check out this cute little pizza place when you’re in the mood for a hot meal that is also good for you. I really shouldn’t be telling you this, but they also do delivery. Very dangerous. Try to limit yourself to eating here once a week, if you think you can handle that. It is vegan though, so technically is this pizza even bad for you? Doesn’t it count as a vegetable?
3. No Bones Beach Club
The worst part about being vegan in Seattle is that you miss out on all the amazing and fresh seafood that is at every restaurant. You don’t get that authentic beach vibe that fish eaters get to experience when they visit the boardwalk. If you love the beach as much as you love being a vegan then check out No Bones Beach Club next time you’re looking for that relaxing side of the ocean vibe. Their motto is ‘just cause it’s vegan doesn’t mean it sucks!’ Their menu options range from fun drinks like a coconut mojito to tasty entres like beer-battered avocado tacos. You could waste away an entire afternoon at the No Bones Beach Club, it’s five O’Clock somewhere after all.
