Delicious and Healthy – Who knew tasty food could be so healthy and make you feel so good. I love the dishes at this place. The flavors are amazing. And I feel great every time I eat there.
"Raw" fudge brownie is delicious but expensive – Wanted to see what eating "raw" foods would be like. The "pizza" was decent, but the green coconut curry was a little tough to eat - the hardness of the veggies made my mouth hurt after awhile, and the spiciness (kind of like a cabbage/horseradish-type spicy, not a pepper-type spicy) was hard to eat much of.
On the other hand, the raw brownie was excellent - very light, not too sweet - but it was a very tiny piece for the price.
We felt virtuous after eating here, but not sure if we'll be back.
Variety of different foods, fresh quality, friendly staff, cozy environment – I'm vegan and I brought my non-vegan meat loving friends here and even they loved the food!
To me, that says enough.
The atmosphere is pleasant and there are little plants for decoration scattered around. They have all sorts of deserts and boy are they delicious. It takes a little while for your food to be done but when it reaches those taste buds, you'll agree that it was worth the wait.
I highly recommend this charming cafe to anyone. It's in a great location too. Grabbing a bite to eat at Chaco Canyon and then walking around University District is a fantastic way to spend the day!
If you seek raw and/or organic AND vegan, this is a good place – Their new space is open, airy, light-filled; a lovely cafe setting. Something about this place reminds me a little of the Elliot Bay Bookstore. You will find unique and creative cuisine here, catered especially for raw diets and healthy gurus. It's a bit pricey, and the food I have had so far is just okay, but this really is the only restaurant of its kind in Seattle. A wide array of vegan, raw, even gluten-free deserts await you when you walk in; I recommend trying some. Staff is friendly too. Another reason to eat here is that the food and beverages are almost all organic!
And, extra bonus points: They recycle and compost!!!
Organic Heaven! – If you haven't heard, Chaco Canyon has moved from its tiny original location just a block to the west (corner of 50th and 12th, across from the YMCA), and WOW what a change! The old place was quaint, if not a bit musty and cramped. The new location is bright, airy and beautiful. As a longtime regular customer, I must say that the change in environment has brought a huge change to everything else. The menu is more extensive. The notorious wait time for food and the frequent outtages of menu items are a thing of the past. The friendly hippie staff from before has been transformed into a bright, cheerful and (as far as I can tell) almost entirely female one. Best of all, the food as always fresh, imaginative, affordable and delicious. I hate going into a cafe and seeing the same items you see everywhere else; Chaco Canyon truly strives towards originality and variety on its menu. If you've never been, go check them out!
Casual Dining – It's great to have somewhere that offers Raw food! Food is good and on par with the cost. Friendly, deli like service.
The Raw desserts are incredible, and well worth going for that alone!
It's great to have Chaco Canyon, but Seattle is overdue in getting a Raw Vegan 'Fine dining' choice.
Healthy and Yummy! – I ate here this week for the first time. I had the avacado and tomato sandwich- sounds kinda boring, but it was the best I ever had! The bread they used was to die for and the 7003 juice which was just delicious.
They are a littl tricky to find because they are situated below another restaurant, but once you find it you are in for a treat!
Vegan oasis! – As a fairly recent vegan, I have been slowly trying all the places in town and i just LOVE this place! The people are so friendly, the food is great, free wireless a huge plus. The thai grinder is always a winner and the pizza! The organic juice menu is awesome too, with prices you can't beat. Thank you for making vegan life a bit easier!
Editorial Review – With its Southwestern decor, the cafe is a vegan's paradise with energizing juices and raw veggie entrees.
Yummy Pesto sandwhich – The food was good when we finally got it. They didn't have any soup, they didn't have any hummus so I got my third choice the pesto melt. It was very good. My friend had the lasagna. She was surprised and thought it was weird, but she ate every bite. I enjoyed the menu and will probably eat here again as there are several items I want to try. Great fresh juice menu.
I picked this restaurant because I avoid eating dairy or wheat. I really like raw food and the menu is creative and reasonably priced. I wasn't the least disappointed in the food or menu.
Service was minimal and what we got was in slow motion. We were basically ignored the rest of the time. If your over 21 and have expectations about customer service you might want to consider ordering to go.
