--------

Raga, 556 108th Ave NE, Bellevue, 450-0336

Seattle
-------

The Seattle area has a fair number of vegetarians, and is a pretty
good place for vegetarians to live. There is Puget Consumer Coop, a
natural food coop with 5 area stores (most of which are full
supermarket size). There are several good all-vegetarian restaurants,
many restaurants that have at least a few vegetarian dishes, and most
of those that don't are very accommodating about whipping up something
special.

Public transit is really decent in Seattle and free in the core of
downtown. Off peak bus service to other places (like the U-district)
is $.85, $1.10 (1995) at peak times and you can get a transfer good
for 2 hours.


Vegan Restaurants:

Bamboo Garden, 364 Roy Street (Queen Anne area), 282-6616
  Located near Seattle Center (where the Space Needle is).

  operated. Open Mon-Sat 10:30am-8:30pm.


Vegetarian Restaurants:

Cafe Flora, E. Madison St. (in the heart of the Madison Valley).
- Stay away if things yuppie make you ill, but if you enjoy artsy
  food, no alcohol and a pleasant environment that just happens to be
  vegetarian, this is a nice place. Dinner entrees run around 8-$15.
  Our "Cafe Flora regular" says their food has gone from good to
  excellent. She calls it "reasonably priced gourmet". Portions are
  good. Some vegan options, which are indicated on the menu. Cafe
  Flora is doing *a lot* of business: early evening is always very
  busy.

Honey Bear Bakery, 56th and Meridian
- Good bakery with a few lunch choices that are all vegetarian.

- Good Ethiopian food with reasonable vegetarian choices.

- This is a fairly strange Italian restaurant that has a good
  assortment of interesting vegetarian choices. Expect to find things

  strange things hanging from the ceiling and waiters that are pretty
  strange in their own right. Open for dinner with moderate prices
  ($7-$12). Wine is available.

Cafe Illiterati, 5327 Ballard Avenue, 782-0191

Julia's, two locations:
  in Wallingford, 1714 N 44th, (Wallingford)
  Park Place, 5410 Ballard Ave NW, (Ballard)

    burritos (beans, rice, tomato, avocado, cheeze) for $3.50, other
