This is the second part of our Pacific Northwest trip, I talked about the first part here. We really enjoyed Portland and Seattle, with Seattle being our favorite. It would totally be a place we’d love to live if it wasn’t for the gloomy weather (and also all the vegan food is amazing but I’d be so tempted to eat out all the time). We flew into Seattle first and although it was rainy most of the time, which meant no hiking for us, we had a great time.
The first place we stopped at was 701 Coffee (which unfortunately now seems to be permanently closed); we got in early and needed some breakfast and this place offered bagels with a cashew cheese! When we got there I asked for two bagels and the person helping me said, “we only have everything bagels, is that okay?”. To which I replied YES. Because everything bagels are, well, everything! These bagels really hit the spot and were a great way to start this vegan food tour of Seattle off right.
Our plan was to have breakfast in Seattle and then drive to Portland, stay there for a few days, and then come back to Seattle for a few days. Well, before driving to Portland we of course had to stop at Mighty-O Donuts, which I was so excited for! Donuts are basically the perfect dessert. It seems that Mighty-O serves mainly cake donuts, which I am totally behind. Also, the entire place is vegan! And according to Michael their coffee is amazing. Yes we each had two donuts on our first time going (because of course we went again on our last day as well) we really like donuts, okay? 🙂
Other than Mighty-O, the place I was most looking forward to was Wayward Cafe (all vegan!). Their menu here is enormous with a full breakfast and lunch/dinner menu. I really wish we had more time, there was so many items I wanted to try. We stopped in for breakfast and everything was of course perfect. Honestly, any place that serves vegan biscuits and gravy is okay by me. Also this was towards the end of our trip, after days of eating delicious but not so healthy food so I ordered a huge side of steamed kale with my biscuits and gravy, not the most exciting side but I was craving greens!
Sugar Plum is a sweets shop that is, yes, all vegan (you people in Seattle are so lucky!). This is what we had, words can do no justice, it was as good as it looks. In fact, I had to talk Michael down from going in to get a second one!
No Bones Beach Club (all vegan of course) was a place I really wanted to try but after several days of eating out, I wasn’t feeling so great. We ended up getting some sandwiches to go, both were really good!
The last place we went to, a few times, was Chaco Canyon Cafe. The last couple days we were craving healthy food and happened upon this cafe, which of course just happened to be all vegan! I didn’t get photos of everything we ate here, but we had a few sandwiches and bowls and they were all so good! Here is a photo of a smoothie, chai tea latte, and one of their elixirs.
On the drive from Portland to Seattle we stopped at Stadium High School, the 10 Things I Hate About You school. Kat was my queen in high school, so seeing this school was a lot of fun. We also stopped at Gas Works Park because of the paintball scene in the movie.
We also walked around Pike Place Market and stopped by the gum wall.Overall this was a great trip! Next time we go back we’ll have to pick a time with better weather so we can hike.
