Sunlight Cafe Seattle Reviews
Great Vegetarian Food at Seattle's Oldest Veg Restaurant Jun 06, 2010
Sunlight Cafe is a great place to go if you are in Seattle and looking for a vegetarian place. Don't worry- if you are an omnivore, you will still find plenty of tasty menu items. Vegans, however, have limited selection, unless they request menu items to be slightly altered.
I have gone to Sunlight several times with friends and family, and so far no one has ever complained- and we're talking picky eaters and staunch meat-eaters! There is something for everyone. Think vegetarian, "hippy" twist to standard American food- nutburger, grilled tempeh, nachos, etc. And, their brunch on Saturday and Sunday 9-2 is AWESOME- my absolute favorite part! Their lemon-tahini dressing is simply to die for, and you can even purchase your own bottle. Trust me- it's amazing.
Now, a thing or two about service. I have found the servers to be nice, though sometimes a little neglectful. Also, don't expect a lickety-split arrival of your food; it's a laid back atmosphere that actually gives you time to socialize. Some people appreciate this, other people HATE waiting for their food. If you need something quick or are impatient, I can say with certainty that Sunlight is not for you.
Finally- people either seem to really like Sunlight or really dislike it, for a variety of reasons ranging from service, the hippy environment, or the food. If it sounds like you fit in with the crowd, go for it. Otherwise, find another place.
