Everett's Best Vegetarian Restaurants

Banner: Cafe Wylde
To the untrained eye, Everett may seem unfriendly to the veggie crowd, but there’s more than meets the eye. Here are seven great places to grab a meat-free bite in Everett.

Sisters

Website
Good food from scratch daily since 1983. Family-owned Sisters always has vegetarian options, including sandwiches, soups, pastries, and pies. There’s no gimmicky nonsense here, no “fusion bistro” conceptual food pandering. Just fresh veggies, quality ingredients, and hearty legumes: the type of fuel you can run your day on. Cool venue, too— located in the historic downtown market building on the corner of California and Grand Avenue. Be sure to check back regularly for rotating art installations on the wall. 

Cafe Wylde

Website
The place to get a quinoa bowl and probiotic smoothie after an intense yoga sesh. Cafe Wylde caters to an organic, health-conscious clientele with treats like jackfruit tacos, smoky guacamole dip, and fresh-squeezed juices. The place has a nice, clean, white interior with natural lighting and an upstairs seating area. Nothing you order here will add to your waistline though this doesn’t mean it’s not delish.The Schack Art Center is directly across the street—perusing the art gallery can make for a fun after-dining party.

Cafe Zippy

Website
Raw tacos, hot paninis, nachos, gourmet coffee, and plenty of shaded outdoor seating. Cafe Zippy is located in a former corner grocery in the heart of the walkable Bayside Neighborhood. The residential setting brings a strong sense of local camaraderie. “Zippy’s” (as the locals call it) hosts local art showings, poetry readings, civic events, and other community-focused programming.

Sno-Isle Natural Foods Co-op

Website
A casual bite awaits at the co-op deli—pre-made, ready-to-eat vegetarian goodies like chickpea salads, bean burritos, pesto pasta, and marinated kale. There are hot options, too, like soup and veggie paninis. The co-op has an indoor seating area with picnic benches. There are also outdoor benches with built-in herb planters: good for catching a few rays on your lunch break.

The Valley Organic Deli

Website
Organic deli with food that will satisfy the most demanding of dietary needs. Vegans rejoice: your smoothie and sandwich destination is right here. This venue is notable for its rollup door that lets in that joyful westerly summery breeze. On sunny days you can dine from the comfort of the deli interior, people watch, and enjoy views of street life on Colby Avenue. A fresh salad seems fitting on such a day. Pro tip, the ½ salad sandwich combo is the best value.
