Everyone at Cafe Flora shares the conviction that there must be joy in food—in its preparation, presentation and consumption—and that vegetarian dishes can be as playful, exciting, and deeply satisfying as any other foods, perhaps more so.

For more than a decade, Seattle's award-winning Cafe Flora has been serving up ingenious vegetarian and vegan dishes which have become so popular that even meat lovers long for the taste of their Portobello Wellington or Oaxaca Tacos. Now, from brunch dishes to appetizers and main courses to sides, salads, and condiments, here are 250 of its original recipes-with detailed instructions, clearly presented, to save time cooking and cleaning up. Along with serving and presentation suggestions, substitutions where appropriate, and a host of other culinary tips and advice, Cafe Flora Cookbook embodies the true genius of this inventive restaurant.

“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.”
