I stopped by this shop a few days ago while visiting Seattle. It's a nice sized boutique with a lovely selection of shoes and chocolate as well as socks, belts, tshirts, and a few other accessories. I didn't purchase any shoes, but I thought the choices were really great and not too great in number to be overwhelming (I even saw a few pairs I already own). Instead I bought a pair of socks, a greeting card, and some chocolate. Much to my surprise, my omni boyfriend bought some vegan dress shoes.
While shopping, we chatted with the friendly owner and her dog, Mocha. She even helped recommend some great vegan restaurants in the area.
It felt good to support a small business owner who provides the type of shoes and goodies that I love! I'll definitely stop by again the next time I'm in Seattle.

I live fairly close to Little Goat Diner but I never would have guessed they're so accommodating to vegans, so I didn't try it until yesterday. There's a separate vegan menu that can be requested. I tried the vegan burger with tomato relish and shredded cabbage. The burger looks like it was composed mostly of chickpeas, a grain (brown rice?), and veggies (broccoli, carrots, mushrooms). It was really refreshing to have a veggie burger made out of... veggies! The waitress very helpful suggested smoked fries and brussels sprouts to share with my husband, and also the dairy-free chocolate shake. I didn't see these on the vegan menu so I appreciated her help! Everything was great and I left painfully full. I can't seem to find any hint of the vegan menu on the website, though I haven't checked any social media sites. I wish I had known sooner!
** I enjoyed my meal and would give the restaurant 5 "cows" based on the food and service. Happy Cow doesn't allow more than 4 because this isn't a vegetarian restaurant.**

I ate at the Manatee Cafe while visiting St. Augustine for a wedding October '10. It was on a list of local restaurants that our hotel provided, otherwise I probably wouldn't have noticed it. My boyfriend and I liked it so much we ate here two days in a row. I was thrilled to find that they serve vegan pancakes and waffles (for me) as well as regular (for my omnivore boyfriend). The service was good and the food was delicious! The tofu scramble was incredible - I highly recommend it.
I would give this restaurant a 5/5 rating, but only a max of 4/5 is allowed for non-vegetarian restaurants.

Excellent dining experience
We came for dinner last Thursday without a reservation but, thankfully, we arrived early enough to get seated right away. This is a rather small restaurant, so it's understandable why they prefer that people make a reservation.
I ordered the prix fixe menu with a pasta that was similar to ravioli (very delicious) and chocolate carmel torte (so decadent). My boyfriend ordered a burger that was truly phenomenal! It seemed to be mostly beet based with eggplant "bacon" and cashew "cheese"on a rosemary bun. I've never had such a great burger, and my omnivore boyfriend was very pleased.
We felt that a lot of thought and creativity was put into the menu and I was very happy that Portobello satisfied my meat eating boyfriend (though he loves veggies). We'll definitely come back on our next trip to Portland.
