Breakfast, lunch, and dinner with a punk-rock sensibility

Restaurant, Coffee/Tea/Juice, Bar

The menu has many vegan and gluten-free options, including breakfast and lunch. Mostly organic, and many local ingredients. Hearty, down-home breakfast served all day, coffee, smoothies, vegan and gluten-free baked goods, great outdoor seating, very casual. Lunch is served from 11am till 5pm weekdays (closed Tues). Soy, rice, and almond milk available for coffee drinks. Beer and wine are available. Food service ends one hour before close.

There's nothing like a weekend morning that begins at Seward Cafe. This morning I had what has become my usual—beans and rice (I prefer the black beans) with broccoli and ranchero sauce (you have to order those separately). At the condiment bar I load up on hot sauce and minced jalapeños. I usually get a bottomless cup of tea, too, and have a little too much Irish breakfast tea. The vegan pastries are tasty as well. Today I shared a tasty jupiter bar and the tahini almond cookie is good too.

Vegan cookies and muffins rock my socks! I also have a song and dance I do when ordering the mariachi with tofu (and cheese) because it is so tasty. Be warned they are not joking about the size of their pancakes...if you can eat 2 you have more of an appetite than I do. Great brunch place for vegans and vegetarians. The ordering system and cooperative vibe can be a little intimidating for first time visitors, but just brave through the learning process and enjoy!
