Start with vegetarian mainstay Cafe Flora (2901 E Madison St; in Madison Valley—the plant-filled spot serves inventive seasonal plates (melon shiso or apple farro salad, anyone?), but favorites like the hearty portobello Wellington are year-round staples.

On Capitol Hill, Ada’s Technical Books and Café (425 15th Ave; may look more geek than veggie-centric, but the meat-free menu is chock-full of egg dishes and cheesy mains—think breakfast sandwiches with house-made vegan sausage and chorizo seitan tacos. Nearby Juicebox Café (1517 12th Ave; boasts a small but mighty menu of yogurt parfaits and grain bowls complementing the juices, shakes, and wellness shots on offer. Try ordering the carrot, apple, ginger combo called “turmeric gold.”

Snag a seat in tiny Anar (2040 Sixth Ave; in South Lake Union for a bowl of mujadara (lentils plus Seattle-based Ellenos yogurt) paired with apricot orange blossom “mystic” kombucha. Despite its name, Georgetown Liquor Company (5501B Airport Way S; serves up delicious fare aimed toward herbivores. Vegetarian and vegan options range from root vegetables slathered with gooey goat cheese to vegan Carolina barbecue ham sliders.

For a multicourse meal reverential of all things vegan (signaled by the gong before dinner), try Harvest Beat (1711 N 45th St; in Wallingford. Its delightful plates highlight local produce and wine from Walla Walla to the Columbia Valley.
