Respond to Review of Wayward Vegan Cafe
Review: My husband and I stopped at this place on our final day in Seattle, and boy are we glad we did. Had we stopped by sooner, we would have gone more than once, no doubt. The place was packed (always a good sign). We grabbed menus by the door, decided on what to order, made our way to the cash register where we ordered and picked up a "number" to place on our table. Be warned, you will have to stand around waiting for someone to be finished with their table (everyone buses their own table) before you can sit. Coffee, water, napkins, silverware are all self-serve. When you order/pay there is a place on the receipt for a tip, so you essentially have to tip before you've had any service. They do bring the food to your table though. And boy is it good. I hope the entire kitchen splits the tips. Dave ordered the "Country Bumpkin" (smile) - Open-faced herb biscuit (to die for) topped with tofu scramble and country-style sausage gravy, with a side of steamed greens with garlic. This was a large plate of food and was really tasty. I was only allowed two bites, and I am still thinking about the biscuit. There was plenty of sausage in the gravy, and the tofu was well flavored and plentiful. I had The Warlock a sandwich on sourdough with- crispy fried chiggen (I think this was tofu - it was CRISPY and DELICIOUS) with a chipotle-tahini sauce and a side of fries. The sauce was really yummy, and again, the chiggen was so much better than I had even hoped for. The fries were fresh out of the fryer and lightly crisp. They serve breakfast and lunch fare during their open hours. They close early (4pm), so plan accordingly. Many different types of people were eating when we were there on a Saturday, young and old alike. Aside from the initial confusion about how it all worked, I really enjoyed the experience and the food, and we will be back the next time we are in Seattle. Check out Pizza Pi too, they are across the street and also delicious. The University District has many options for vegan dining.
