An ok place with a few vegetarian options on the menu. If you want a quick bite and a coffee it will do.

I was hungry for a peanut butter sandwich. Boy did I find one. It's called the "Peanut Butter & Stuff". It's good tasking.

Horrible for Vegans

Posted on 03 / 25 / 2014

This place is awful for vegans! I have been there when I was in the area and desperate for lunch. I got a fruit cup and a slice of focaccia. This is not particularly veg friendly. And the focaccia is terrible too. It's swimming in oil and so much thyme it tastes moldy. Don't go here.

Should not be listed!

There's only one vegan option (a salad) and while large, it's not very tasty or unique. You could easily make something better for yourself at home. I was dining with omnis and their orders were messed up - charged for things they didn't get, wrong soup (twice). Also, found a piece of turkey in my salad. Would not recommend this place AT ALL.


Cons: price, limited options, poor quality

Several veggie sandwiches and salads

5 tasty non-meat sandwiches on the menu (yes, one is a PB&J) and several salad options. Usually at least one vegetarian soup available. Vegans will probably have to stick with a salad, but if you eat dairy you will be happy with the DELICIOUS sandwiches on thick, amazing bread made on-site. Not sure what is to object to by listing this place on Happy Cow. Health wise, pretty much any Mexican place with veggie options will be worse for you than this, and choice wise, there are sandwiches, soup, and salads available. Great option if you are wandering about downtown and need some lunch.

Pros: Bread and baked goods are delicious, Friendly staff
Cons: Vegans will need to stick with a salad

    Let me explain why I wrote that very respectfully (btw, are you the submitter?)
    HC claims to want to have a good percentage of the menu to be veggie. In metro areas, this means that in Seattle, the bar is raised especially when considering the volume of both vegan and veggie places. In this case, a "salad", as you said a vegan would need to stick to, would not and should not suffice. A listing to HC needs to be better in a veggie town than just a salad, a pb&j, or a hummus samich. Please. We can do better and we should. This is a chain after all, too. Mom and pop aren't grinding beans making hummus in the back. Feel free to ask directly any time too.

I object to this listing

Look at the menu. A Pnut butter samich?! Amonst a barnyard of dead animals?!! C'mon now.

It was a great idea to stop allowing posts/reviews from anonymous visitors. So too you should stop allowing submissions from non-members. Also, you ought to see in a town like Seattle that has a lot of veg cafes, that this place and places like this are never allowed entry.

The menu is all meat w very little veg food. Doesn't belong on HAppyCow! please stop listing meat places that offer little to nothing and whose intent is clearly not on good food.

Pros: joke
Cons: all meat, a chain
