Healthy Food Dining Guide
Whether you want to sit down for a hearty, healthy meal or grab something casual to go, Downtown Everett has plenty of places to eat that will satisfy without the guilt.
Valley Organic Deli
2805 Colby Ave.
If your favorite words are sprouts, whole wheat, or kale, then Valley Organic Deli is right up your alley. Their smoothie game is strong, and Valley Organic has a roll-up door and a small patio looking out over Colby Avenue, both of which make for a pleasant dining al fresco experience when the weather permits.
At Valley, you can order anything to go off of their online menu, and it will be ready to pick up at the front counter when you walk through the door.
Local tip: The half sandwich and salad is a great deal at just $8.50. The maple balsamic is heavenly.
Mon.–Sat. 9 a.m.-5 p.m.
1502 Rucker Ave.
You’ll literally fall in love this Everett eclectic, neighborhood classic. Cafe Zippy offers goodies like sweet vegan pie, vegetable panini sandwiches, hummus bagels, grasshopper smoothies and biscuits and gravy for brunch. Zippy’s (as the locals call it) hosts music performances, and you can dine on their outdoor patio, too.
Mon.-Wed. 8 a.m.–6 p.m.
Thu. 8 a.m.–9 p.m.
Fri.-Sat. 8 a.m.–7 p.m.
Sun. 9 a.m.–3 p.m.
Sno-Isle Food Co-Op
2804 Grand Ave.
It’s a super awesome grocery store, but the Co-op’s deli is maybe the best place in town for a health-conscious diner to grab something to eat. The Co-op offers sandwiches and smoothies, soup, and small prepackaged containers of deli items like chickpea salads, beet slaw, veggie "meat" loaf sandwiches, and Asian noodle salads. Pair with a coffee or kombucha and you have a delicious and healthy meal.
Open seven days a week, 7:00 a.m.-9:00 p.m.
The Sisters Restaurant
2804 Grand Ave.
The lunch line for this beloved restaurant often winds out the door, but The Sisters Restaurant welcome phone-ahead orders. The sit-down experience is worth the wait (both for breakfast and lunch). The Sisters serves up salmon burgers, fresh green salads, different daily soups such as curried black-eyed peas, or minestrone with chard. You’ll want to finish off your meal with a slice of homemade pie. Trust us.
Mon.-Fri. 7 a.m.-4 p.m.
2918 Hoyt Ave.
Another local organic deli, Cafe Wylde is all vegan and specializes in goodies like hearty quinoa bowls loaded full of healthy bits like avocados, seaweed, and homemade tahini dressing. Cafe Wylde offers smoothies filled with fresh flavors like passion fruit, dates, and cardamom, making this place the gourmand’s smoothie destination.
Local tip: The Cafe may be closed in the afternoons between lunch and dinner rushes. These afternoon closures are not always indicated online, so call ahead.
