My mom and I started this tradition in New York 2016 that we would travel somewhere together once a year for our birthdays. We kept our tradition going in Seattle November 2017. My mom has been really supportive of my vegan lifestyle and ate vegan with me throughout the entire trip. We went for 2 1/2 days which was more than enough. This city is perfect for a weekend getaway and despite the raining weather, my mom and I had a blast! I will most definitely come back just for the vegan food. We arrived Friday night so I will not count that day since we just checked in and slept to prepare for the following day.Here is my itinerary of top attractions and a few vegan spots we visited.
Wayward Vegan Cafe (801 NE 65th St, Seattle, WA 98115)
My mom and I headed for breakfast here before our day of adventures. I had the Ex-Benedict and my mom had their pancakes. I loved my dish it was very delicious. The pancakes my mom had were okay. I loved the atmosphere overall and I would come back here for their ex-benedict.
Chihuly Garden and Glass (305 Harrison St, Seattle, WA 98109)
This museum has remarkable pieces of glass art. We went in the morning and it was a bit crowded in the beginning. I loved how colorful the art pieces were. I felt like I was in Disneyland in the “It’s a small world” ride. LOL
Space Needle (400 Broad St, Seattle, WA 98109)
The space needle is a must in Seattle! It amazes me to see the great things humanity can accomplish when we come together. I love the architectural design of the space needle and it obviously has a great view of the city.
Pikes Market Place
This bakery on the Public Market strip had several freshly made vegan bread. My mom and I got the Hazelnut bread and OMG it was amazing. We went back to buy more to bring back home with us. I honestly would go back to Seattle just for that bread! I love hazelnuts and they were not stingy with them.
Original Starbucks (1912 Pike Pl, Seattle, WA 98101)
The very first Starbucks ever is right there at the market. There was a crazy line to order coffee so we didn’t care to get in line.
Gum Wall (1428 Post Alley, Seattle, WA 98101)
The gum wall is down an alley at the market, come prepared with some gum. My mom said I was gross for touching her bubble but whatever, she’s my mom.
Veggie Grill (1427 4th Ave, Seattle, WA 98101)
I love Veggie Grill and I was stoked that there was one near by. My mom was impressed by their Beyond burger! Oh and the market had so many BEAUTIFUL bouquet of flowers, we just had to buy some.
Â Seattle Great Wheel (1301 Alaskan Way, Seattle, WA 98101)
We didn’t care to go on the wheel so we just admired it from a far.
Plum Bistro (1429 12th Ave, Seattle, WA 98122)
Almond Caper Tofu
Veggie Monster Pizza
The food here was absolutely delicious and the staff was super sweet. Their cocktails we also very good! I have to give it to them, their pizza is the best vegan pizzaÂ I have ever had, hands down. I will be coming to dine here again if I’m in town!
Expresso Vivace (532 Broadway E, Seattle, WA 98102)
I loved this coffee shop! The soy latte and vegan donut was delish! I loved the vibes. This would be the coffee spot for me if I lived there.
It is worth the trip out to these falls. I found it hilarious that on the plane some locals recommended me to visit these falls but they said it was far (40 mins out the city). Living in San Diego and dealing with traffic, 40 mins is not far at all to me. Any who, I’m glad we came out and we hiked along the trail to enjoy the beauty nature has to offer.
Loving Hut (1226 S Jackson St, Seattle, WA 98144)
Tom Yum Soup
Once again, Loving Hut does not fail to impress me. The food was sooo bomb! These dishes have got to be one of my favorite dishes I’ve had from all the Loving Hut locations that I have been too. The Â raw cheesecake was phenominal . I just love Loving Hut!
Kerry Park (211 W Highland Dr, Seattle, WA 98119)
My mom and I did not plan to twin, I swear. Â This was out last stop before heading to the airport. The park has a great view of the city and the residential homes near this park are gorgeous. We really enjoyed our weekend stay in this city. Most importantly, the vegan foods are worth the trip out here. I look forward to this years trip in 2018. Stay tuned, it’s a big one ð
