On this beautiful and unusually sunny day in Seattle, we headed over to Sage Bakery and Cafe in Capitol Hill for some vegan grub. This tiny cafe had three high-top tables and stools as well as two outside tables as it was more of a carry-out place.
We grabbed a seat at a high-top table and treated ourselves to a little water as we perused the menu. So a word about the menu - wow! Talk about vegan options galore! This 100% vegan cafe boasts an impressive menu featuring 12 off-the-grill fresh sandwiches, 5 vegan crepes, 11 signature burgers, baked goods, and options for ordering custom sandwiches. It was a bit overwhelming to say the least. After much discussion, we placed our orders.
I had one of their fresh ginger apple juices from Fresh Juice World, which was yummy. It was more of an apple juice with a little ginger, but that is better than there being too much ginger, which is more often the case than not. Our food took a little time as it is all freshly made, but we were okay with that because it stated that you will wait 15 minutes if ordering fresh food. I appreciated the heads up!
And when it came, it was so worth it. I ordered The Sweet Jamaican, which was a Jamaican spice tofu wrap on lavash bread. It was filled with Jamaican spiced tofu, smoked yams, grilled sweet onions, cabbage, lettuce, tomato and vegan mayonnaise. It was absolutely delicious! The tofu had this great texture and spicy taste - this was tofu done right! I loved the presentation as well as the meal. The accompanying salad was very fresh as well. It was pricey at $11, but well worth it.
Zach ordered the "Vegan Crepes." We have no idea why one of the vegan crepes is just called, "vegan crepes," when all of them are vegan, but whatever. I haven't had many (if any) crepes and I liked these. They were filled with oyster mushrooms and smoked seitan, then topped with vegan cheese "yease" sauce. Zach said they didn't really taste like crepes, but I still thought they were pretty good. The crepes were priced at $11 as well.
For dessert, we had a blueberry lime cupcake. The cake itself was delicious and the icing was a unique mix of blueberry and lime flavors.
Overall, we had a great experience at Sage and hope to go back the next time we visit Seattle. This is a great low-key lunch spot with incredible food.
