We ordered the rhubarb salad and the mushroom Wellington. I would not recommend either. Sorry, Cafe Flora, we won't return. Horribly Bitter salad and a gravy on the mushroom Wellington that just was not edible. Fortunately Seattle has many other great restaurants to choose from.

Went for lunch on a slow Friday afternoon. The food choices were good and decently priced. We all ordered different scrambles which were tasty and the cheesy grits were yummy. The portions were not large but reasonably sized. However, the service was not good!!! - indifferent and at times, impatient. The drinks came slowly and not together. The check was... More

I am NOT! a vegan but my daughter is so we went here for her birthday. Very nice restaurant. Service was very good also. I must admit that there was an excellent variety of appetizers, soup, and entrees. I really enjoyed my Tacos and asparagus soup. Salads were delicious and nutritious. My Vegan offspring truly enjoyed herself. I'm certain she... More

The dishes are not super flavor forward. I have been to Cafe Flora 5 times. One time I went for dessert and the coconut cake was delicious. Subsequent visits I was not super impressed.

We just stumbled across this amazing restaurant thinking we would just stop in for a drink to get out of the rain. Some things are better not planned! Great atmosphere and food. A nice selection of non-alcoholic drinks for my pregnant daughter and a nice local beer for me. The fried avocado and the crispy wontons were delicious. A great... More

I went to Cafe Flora for the first time for dinner a few days ago, and I can't believe I've never been before! From the minute we walked in the door, our party of 5 were greeted promptly and immediately got a table. Our waitress was the sweetest, most accommodating waitress I have ever had in my life. We had... More

I came here with my parents for a birthday dinner on a Saturday evening. Everything we had was delicious, from drinks to dessert! I recommend making a reservation or expect the wait to be long even if you show up for an early dinner. They also serve a brunch that looks spectacular and a little more budget friendly.

Had breakfast today at cafe flora. Because it was billed as a vegetarian place I had my doubts I would find something I would want to eat, but I was really knocked out by my meal. I had the grapefruit pancakes and man I kid you not they were great. My wife who is a vegetarian was in heaven. My... More

We were in Seattle for a week and ate at a number of very good restaurants, but this was our favorite. Since it is not located downtown or in tourist areas the atmosphere was much more relaxed and the staff was much friendlier. We had the fried olive and hummus platter for an appetizer, the Oaxaca tacos and the gluten... More

Great service, fresh food, eclectic art/environment. Seated quickly, really delicious breakfast and large hot beverages. Good for vegetarian/vegan.
