So many vegan choices. – Wayward cafe recently moved and is now located in what I have determined to be "little vegan" right by Pizza Pi and Sidecar in the U district. What a great addition. The menu is extensive and has a wide variety of choices which is something vegans are not used to and can be easily overwhelming. Everything just sounds so good. The new location is much better than the previous location with lots of street parking. Its open every day 9-4, so only a lunch or breakfast place unfortunately. Cream cheese crepes are delicious, so is the tofu scramble and the chicken friend steak is pretty fun too. Normal breakfast food like pancakes and waffles for people who don't love fake meat. Tempeh bacon may be hard for the non vegetarain. This place was hopping on Easter, good to know you can get your holiday vegan breakfast on.
Worth seeking out – I love Wayward, and it is *so* worth the effort to go out of your way. They offer biscuits and gravy to die for, addictive sandwiches, and like 7 different and creative scrambles. Awesome find, *barely* off the beaten path (one block off Roosevelt, now how hard was that?).
Lunch! – I spent a day wandering around Seattle, and decided to try and find the Wayward cafe. Ok. This place is not the easiest spot to find. It's on the corner of a residential area.
The food is greasy. All vegan. I had a TLT (Tempeh Lettuce and Tomato) sandwich and it was very good. It's probably not worth the effort to go out of your way, but it's a good little vegan lunch if you're around the U-district.
A place to bring your parents to. – Even my picky-eater dad loves this place. The sandwhiches are great, and the waitstaff are friendly. Awesome.
Great Community Hangout – This was a comfortable place to spend an afternoon. Plenty of reading material, relaxed atmosphere, kids, punks, secondhand furniture. Their biscuits'n'gravy were delicious; their cookies were gooey, hardly baked, but in a good way!
