Love, love, love this establishment! They have an amazing menu. From the biscuits and gravy with kale, to their well combined vegetable laden omelets! Staff are on top of things, whether that be suggesting a menu item or sharing a laugh.

I came to Wayward Cafe twice during my trip to Seattle, though it warranted more trips than even that.

First, this is the perfect brunch/lunch spot in a quiet residential area. I've had lots of vegan brunches, but this place serves the best I've had. The first time I went I greatly enjoyed my tofu scramble with spicy seitan and the wonderful herb-covered toast that came with it ($7.50). My half-order of biscuits and gravy ($4) was good, but not as well-executed as the scramble.

The second time I went I had a side of spicy Mexican tofu scramble ($4) (there are probably six or seven different types of scrambles here) which tasted like amazing Mexican street food. The fake chorizo was the perfect touch to it. I also had an awesome sausage breakfast biscuit ($6.50) which consisted of "cheezy" tofu scramble on top of a home-made sausage patty, in between a flaky, soft, herb muffin. Truly amazing stuff. Finally, I had a chocolate chip-blueberry pancake ($3) which was also delicious, and I'm not usually a fan of pancakes.

Wayward looks like it would be the type of place where you'd get surly service in a grungy atmosphere, but instead it's extremely friendly and the food shows so many unusual touches of quality and attention to detail. This is not your ordinary vegan breakfast hole-in-the-wall. Also, surprisingly, they accept credit cards, which is a huge plus. Wayward Cafe is highly recommended.
