What People Are Saying

From the Publisher
“The menu has become a meld of nutritional righteousness and culinary artistry. Few local restaurants put out so many pretty plates—all actually good for you.”
The Seattle Times “Cafe Flora—still a standout in the sea of green. It’s the perfect restaurant for vegetarians to bring non-vegetarian guests.”
Pacific Magazine “Cafe Flora…has flair, integrity and soul.”
The Stranger “The popularity of Cafe Flora…extends beyond a strictly vegetarian clientele.”
Seattle Magazine “If being vegan means a lifetime of lightly breaded coconut tofu with sweet chili dipping sauce or a spicy chickpea falafel wrapped in warm pita bread, you can sign us up.…The highest compliment the Cafe receives, though, is the presence of its regulars—many of whom see nothing wrong with an occasional…crispy-skinned Thanksgiving turkey, but still come to meat-free Flora. It’s just that good.”
