Seattle Food: Wayward Vegan Cafe

…And now back to our regularly scheduled programming.

If you haven’t figured it out by now, classyvegans, I was in Seattle last weekend. Seattle is a beautiful city where the streets are hilly, the public transportation is clean, and there is a vibrant vegan food scene. One restaurant I visited in Seattle that really stuck out: Wayward Vegan Cafe. I wanted to tell you folks all about it while it’s still fresh in my mind.

Dinner plates of Vegan Lasagna with salad and Vegan Country Fried Steak with potatoes and vegetables

As I mentioned in the post about Vegan Haven, there is a vegan-centric intersection up in the University District that is where Wayward Vegan Cafe is located. Right after we got off the plane and checked into our hotel on Friday, we boarded a bus and made a beeline for this place.

You order at the counter at wayward and sit down with your drinks, your utensils and napkins, and a number. The service is fast and there are some really lovely paintings on the wall. It’s a bit punk rock, a bit DIY, and all kinds of wonderful.

Having not eaten since breakfast, we were attracted to what were surely the most fattening delicious things on the menu. I ordered the Country Fried Steak and Tom had the Lasagna. We also had to have some beer, because… beer.

In the photo there, you see (a big ol’ bottle) of Double Mountain Kölsch. I love a good kölsch. This one is a refreshing, medium bodied beer and not too hoppy even though there’s a picture of a hop on the label. (Which is good, because I hate bitter beers.) It was perfect for that hot summer afternoon. Not pictured is the Porter that Tom had… which I neglected to get a photo of at all and thus can’t remember the name of. Blogging is hard. But it was chocolatey and deep. I’d go with a porter in late fall and winter, not exactly my pick for a summer afternoon. However, it was good beer. Now… on to the food. Continue reading

Off to Chicago

Howdy folks!

Tomorrow morning I’m leaving for Chicago and I’ll be there until Sunday for the central APA (it’s a philosophy thing). Hopefully, I’ll remember to bring my camera to all the awesome restaurants I’ll be going to. Chicago Diner is definitely on the list, PS.

Hopefully I can find a WiFi hotspot close to the hotel so I can blog from the road. If not, expect an update early next week.
