My husband and I first visited Seattle in Marh 2007, and for the most part, we liked what we saw and experienced. The city is great for walking around the different districts, seeing many beautiful views of lakes, distant snow-capped mountains, and interesting skyscrappers and buildings. Overall good and relaxed vibes. Fair bus routes to most places. The people seemed to be mostly young (20s and 30s), creative, and somewhat progressive (there are people of other ages as well). As for the vegetarian food, well, it's just okay... could be better. There are many vegetarian and vegan restaurants in Seattle, and we visited many of them. However, the most restaurant kitchen seemed rather small and dark or messy (I peeked in when I had the chance), and majority of the restaurants we visited were on the small and causal side, a couple even grungy. I personally had hoped for more. But that's Seattle. Overall, we both enjoyed our trip and would love to return in the summertime when it's sunny!

Here is a place called "Cinnamon Bakery" that offers a few vegan items - cinnamon roll, muffin, and maybe a vegan cookie. The prices range from $2.20-$3 a piece. It's take-away only. Coffee is also available (not organic).
