You are looking for a relaxing, light-filled setting to have a delicious meal. You want a server who immediately understands your dietary lifestyle and offers suggestions from the menu with an expression of “no worries” and a smile that says “you belong here”. The Sunlight Cafe is my home-away-from-home for food in north Seattle.
The existence of this food oasis is probably not news to anyone in living in Seattle, since they’ve served the vegan/vegetarian community here for many years. Maybe this will just be a happy reminder if you haven’t been there in a while. For those of us who are looking for no-fat vegan eats, these guys are already there with us. They actually have items on the regular menu that fit beautifully. Try the Brown Rice Salad and make your own honey-balsamic dressing at the table or ask them to mix it in the kitchen. The Steamed Vegetables with Tofu is also good, and the nice garlic-ginger sauce is fat-free.
The Sunlight is open from 9:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. everyday. Love it!
