Best Vegetarian: Cafe Flora

The people have spoken.

Step into Café Flora’s serene, atrium-like restaurant, and you’ll see why it’s been a Seattle favorite for more than 25 years. The menu not only boasts intricately prepared, flavor-forward, vegetarian dishes that change with the seasons, like the portobello French dip with caramelized onions, summer-squash-blossom pizza with dill and chili oil, and artichoke croquettes with lemongrass-kaffir lime sauce; it also features a long list of local farm partners and neighborhood food artisans to showcase Café Flora’s passion and commitment to creating community and increasing the transparency of its food-sourcing practices. 2901 E Madison St, 325-9100
