Hi guys,
I'll be staying in Seattle for a few days(August) and I will be near the Sea-Tac Airport. Can you recommend some vegan-friendly cafes/restaurants for me?
Thanks.

Are you going to have a car and if so how far are you willing to drive? In Federal Way there's Punjab Sweets which is a vegetarian Indian cuisine place. In Tacoma we've got quite a few veg-friendly places, Infinite Soups, Gateway to India, Silk Thai, Peanut Sauce, Caffe Dei (vegetarian), Quickie Too (vegan), etc.

In south Seattle there's Georgetown Liquor Company which is a vegetarian bar and has some great food and can veganize almost everything on their menu. There's also St. Dames in south Seattle in the Columbia City area but it's pretty pricy and I didn't find the food I tried to be that great.

Oh, also there's Marlene's Market and Deli in Federal Way and they are super veg-friendly.

If you are interested in stuff in Seattle I can give you a list of places that I've gone to and liked.

Thanks for all the info! Unfortunately I will not have a car. I am going on a cruise which departs from Seattle port, so I'll be staying at a hotel that's right next to the sea tac airport. My friend and I were planning to tour Seattle before and after the cruise, mainly downtown area. My friend is not veggie nor vegan so was wondering what places would be good for the both of us. Any good places near the space needle? Or relatively close. As long as theyre within 15-20 minutes of airport/downtown.
Is federal way close to sea tac/airport?

Btw, we are both Seattle newbies, recommend any good tourist spots? Is the pike market place worth going to? Thanks again

Yes, the market is worth going to.

The light rail line connects the airport and downtown. Columbia City is mid-way, and has the previously mentioned St. Dames (I haven't tried it yet).

Yup, I actually have the app, just wanted to hear some more suggestions

But to be honest, Seatac and Downtown aren't the most vegan-friendly places. The University District is probably the best. Capitol Hill is a bit closer to downtown and also has some vegan places worth checking out, if you were willing to make the trek there.

Bamboo Garden is near the Space Needle. It's all vegetarian (well actually vegan except the fortune cookies) and really delicious. I've protested rodeos at Key Arena and then walked there for dinner. http://www.bamboogarden.net/

I've heard that the 5 Point Diner (or Cafe as it is called but everyone I know calls it diner) is veg-friendly but I haven't been so I can't confirm. It is near the space needle though. There is also a Mexican place at the corner of 2nd and Bell near downtown that I had some really good tofu fajitas at last summer but I can't remember the name of the place.

Central District (near Capitol Hill) has Moonlight Cafe which is very vegan-friendly and Loving Hut which is a vegan place. If you do wind up in Capitol Hill area there's Highline Vegan Bar and also Sage Cafe. I'm not sure what places are veg-friendly there since I've only been to vegan places in Cap Hill.

But yeah, Seatac and Downtown are not very veg-friendly areas. The best closest to Seatac will be Georgetown Liquor Company, St. Dames and Punjab Sweets. I haven't tried anything else around there that is veg-friendly since my friends and I tend to just go to all veg places.

Federal Way is about the same distance from Seatac as south Seattle is. I'm not really sure what to recommend to check out for someone new to Seattle. If you are downtown I'd definitely recommend checking out the piers and if you go to Pikes Place you should check out Left Bank Book Store. I love that place. Oh, at the market there's a bakery that is super veg-friendly. (lots of vegan stuff.) There's also the underground railroad tour but I have no idea if it's any good. I usually am in the U District or Capitol Hill so I'm not really familiar with much of downtown.

Link Light Rail will take you all the way into Westlake (a huge shopping mall and hangout for homeless people--just to be on your guard). Link Light Rail also has a stop in ChinaTown/International district, which will have a lot of Chinese, Thai, and Japanese restaurants that cater mainly to locals (READ: cheap). One stop further is Pioneer Square, which has Maharaja, an excellent Indian restaurant with an "All you can eat" buffet for $6.95--and you can even take it "to go" and have a picnic somewhere, if we have sunny weather. King County Metro will take you all over King County, not *just* Seattle. The Seattle Times Event Guide might have some ideas about where to go and what to visit. There is a Seattle Veg*an Group, too. Just be careful you don't board a Pierce County Bus and end up by Olympia or something like that. I live (and hang out) around that area, and know it well. Just PM me if you want a tour guide. I hope you enjoy both the cruise and your visit to Seattle.

Thank you for all that info! I wrote some of those things down

Thanks, I'll make sure to stay away from those areas lol. High crime rate or something? And if we have more questions I will deff send you a PM! Do you have a facebook or something of that sort where I can add you?

I do have a FB, I'll send you the info via PM. Not a high crime area, just a lot of homeless in Seattle (our streets are not paved with gold, no matter what anyone else tells you). Oh, when you get to Westlake, you can take the Monorail into Seattle Center, and see the Space Needle, and visit Cafe Flora,[/URL] which is a veg*an restaurant. Let's see...LLR stop University Street District will take you to Pike Place Market, definately worth a visit. Lots of artisians there. I told you about Chinatown and Pioneer Square, Stadium Station is busy if there's a sporting event (Mariners (baseball), Sounders (Soccer/football), and Seahawks (football/American football/Gridiron), and Safeco Field has Grounder's Garlic Fries, which is a good reason to attend a game, even if you don't like baseball. Sodo is just an industrial neighborhood, so not much there. Beacon Hill is the friendliest neighbourhood, and if you are here 31 July, they have a small but fun music festival in the afternoon. They also have Kusina Filipina, but I haven't eaten there yet, so not sure if there's veg*an options or not. Mount Baker has some cool artwork at its train stop and pedestrian overpass. Columbia City has a Farmer's Market from 3-7p.m. on Wednesdays. Othello has a Public Market that has a lot of good food, including East African (Sambusa with hot sauce is worth it, just make sure you aren't going to be using your mouth for anything important later that day, like talking or breathing. The hot sauce is HOT!!! Rainier Beach has Pritchard Beach Park, which is a nice place to watch the ducks and the people, and have a picnic. The Tukwila stop has nothing of note, except it's a park and ride. If you should make it into Fed. Way, there's an Afghan Restaurant on 312th that's worth checking out. Let's see, if you go all the way to the FW Transit Center, there's Marlene's Market and Deli, which is one of the biggest health food stores in the state. There's also a small Indian Restaurant that I've never tried, but it smells good when I walk past. Oh, and if you read or heard about something somewhere, and LLR doesn't go there, you can use Tripplanner[/URL] at King County. I really hope this helps, and that you have a wonderful time here. And you get at least one day of sunshine. We've had some cool rainy days here, and although the rest of North America seems to be jealous, we have a lot of outdoor events that are fun, too. If you need an opening address for the Trip Planner, just put "SeaTac Airport" on it. It will go on either addresses or landmark (i.e. Space Needle).
