Wayward Vegan Cafe in Seattle

I'm a big fan of "experience" or "activities" as gifts. This year, for Christmas, my little sister and I told my dad we wanted to treat him to a day trip to Seattle to visit the Experience Music Project and Sci Fi Museum.

Since the sous chef, little sister, and little sister's wife are all vegan... it pays to do a bit of research before any out of town trip that will require a meal out. Plus, we wanted to have some lunch options that would work for both vegans and my dad's taste preferences. We found a few options, but managed to decide on a post EMP/Sci-Fi Museum lunch at the Wayward Vegan Cafe in Seattle's University District. Everything on the menu at Wayward is vegan- they offer a wide range of all day breakfast with lunch and some dinner options too. The options range from greasy spoon-esque, tex-mex fusion, vegan twists on diner classics, and a few healthy options. This place was packed when we arrived around 2-2:30pm, feeling extremely hungry, but luckily a table freed up almost the minute we walked in.
This a pretty casual place; you place your order at the front counter, bus your own dishes, refill your own water, etc
We all left stuffed. Portions were a good size-big. Prices were reasonable. The food was straighforward and delicious. 

I ordered the Breakfast Burrito; Scrambled seasoned tofu, spicy tvp chorizo and spinach wrapped up in a king-sized grilled tortilla, topped with zesty cilantro sour cream, with salsa fresco and homefries ($8.50)

Pancake $4
Bikini Bowl $8- Quinoa over a bed of garlic steamed greens topped with mandarin oranges, diced tomatoes, and a grilled citrus-marinated tempeh cutlet. Served with a side of chipotle tahini.

The Bandito Omelette $10 with homefries
Spicy tvp chorizo, grilled peppers and onions, cheddar cheese, and topped with cilantro lime sour cream. Served with a side of salsa fresco.

Three Cheese Melt $9
Cheddar and American cheese, fried mozza wedges, turkey, tomatoes, and mayo on grilled sourdough with fries

Mac Daddy $12
Two no beef patties, reuben sauce, lettuce, cheese, pickles, onions on a sesame free bun,
