Traveling while vegetarian can be a challenge, it’s true. Lucky for you, you’re in Seattle NorthCountry, and our restaurants show a lot of love for the meat-free among us. Here are a handful of local favorites catering inclusively (if not exclusively) to those who prefer portobellos to pork.
In Arlington, Mirkwood Public House(117 E Division St) will handle your post-hike cravings with dive-bar style. Grab a pint and a vegetarian chili-burger to refuel, but be ready for the live music to get loud on a Saturday night.
In Everett, Cafe Wylde (2918 Hoyt Ave) is a vegan’s dream. Housed in a cozy spot in the heart of downtown, and directly across from the Schack Art Gallery, Cafe Wylde boasts a modern vegan menu of wraps, salads, raw juices & smoothies, plus organic beer and wine.
In Mill Creek, Clay Pit (Suite # M 107 15418 Main Street) is a local favorite for flavor lovers. Indian food is always a good choice for vegetarians on the move, and Clay Pit does not disappoint with a full dinner menu and delicious lunch buffet to satisfy meat eaters and avoiders alike.
Also in Everett, Cafe Zippy (1502 Rucker Ave) stresses environmental responsibility and local love. With a deli meets coffee shop atmosphere and a great selection of raw/vegetarian/vegan options, it’s a perfect neighborhood spot to grab a quick plate of walnut tacos or the “Spicy Elvis”—a peanut butter, jelly, and hot sauce sandwich.
Grilla Bites (1020 1st St #104) is a popular spot on a popular street in Snohomish. If your travels take you to this antiquer’s paradise city, stop in for organic soups, salads, sandwiches, and hot plates with plenty of vegan options. The salad bar here has stuff like cooked salmon and hemp hearts.
In Mukilteo, Sage & Cinder (613 5th St) has your date night (or fancy brunch) handled with class and spectacular views. The shareable plates are almost too pretty to eat and even the cocktails are vegan. This is guilt free fine dining at its actual finest.
