Catering to a rather liberal University District clientele, this open-air vegetarian eatery is where you can feel good about what you are eating. Breakfasts are delicious, but the lunches are also extremely popular; especially on weekends, when a line stretches out the door. There are two dining areas, an upper and lower, and the space is filled with natural light and fresh air. Being one of Seattle's pioneer vegetarian restaurants, it has a '70s feel. No meat is served; but the Tofu Scrambles, stir-fries, Blueberry Yogurt Pancakes, Brown Rice Salad and a variety of veggie sandwiches make diners forget their carnivorous ways.
My parents went on dates at Sunlight Cafe. We went as a family when I was little. Now at 28 I continue to come back for the excellent food and atmosphere. The whole-grain waffles with blueberries, the Huevos Rancheros with tasty red sauce and black beans, all the salad dressings homemade -- Sunlight Cafe is a wonderful Seattle tradition. I love that place. Strangely, the same guy still works there. They must treat their waitstaff well, which is another plus.
I went to the Sunlight Cafe with a girlfriend of mine and we both had the most delicious food and great service. I had the portobello mushroom burger with pesto sauce and their seasame butter dressing salad is phenominal. It was nice to know that what we were eating was free of nasty unwholesome ingredients and meat-free. We're actually going to breakfast there in just a few minutes to get some Blueberry Yogurt Pancakes. Which sound absolutely delicious.
I went to the Sunlight Cafe last night for the first time. I loved the atmosphere, lots of windows, tables and booths for seating. Their menu had so many good choices, it was hard to decide. My food was excellent and the service was friendly and timely. The prices are a great value. I will definitely go back.
Good grief, there was only one review and it was lousy - so I HAD to write something. We just went there and it was GREAT!! We had the Polenta/ Eggplant, and the Fresh Vegetable Risotto. The food was outstanding and the service as well. Water refills right on time, on a very hot day. And the prices were great too! I WILL be going back.
I was initially annoyed that they have no omelets. It's not clear why, since they serve both eggs and cheese. The huevos rancheros were the closest, so I got them. Ordered them with the avocado and cheese (two add-ons for which you pay extra), but skipped the sour cream. After taking a bite of my food when it arrived, I realized there was sour cream on it, but neither cheddar cheese nor avocado. When Tracy was told about the mistake, she confirmed that I ordered it correctly and apologized. She took it away and came back within 60 seconds. The fix: sour cream scraped off, half cup of guacamole slopped on top. Worse, I was charged I had ordered it even though I never got cheese! Other people say service is bad. Normally food trumps service, but this was inexcusable. I will never go back there again.
