Chaco Canyon Organic Cafés are vibrant, ecologically sound restaurants in Seattle's University District and West Seattle neighborhoods. We are Certified Organic and are 90-97% organic throughout the entire year - proudly one of the few restaurants in the nation that can make this claim.
Set in a warm Southwestern décor, our mission is to provide delicious organic sustenance for a wide variety of needs and individual tastes. We continually seek to set the standard on what it means to be a Sustainable Business. We make all business decisions with the goal of having people, the planet and profitability in balance. We never compromise on our mission, and our ultimate goal of being 100% sustainable. We wear our hearts on our sleeves and demonstrate this in the way we welcome and take care of customers and employees, donate to local and national causes that share our values, source our ingredients, and prepare every dish. We give people (and ourselves) goosebumps with what we show is possible with a cafe, and what a difference one place can make for the world and our community.
Raw and Vegan Food
The first café in the Seattle area that features a daily Raw Foods menu. Composed of fresh organic produce, organic nuts, seeds, spices and oils, our menu changes often and with the seasons. It is approachable for the curious neophyte, delicious for the experienced Raw Foodist, and perfect for someone looking for a unique vegan meal. We also have amazing vegan sandwiches, several daily hot vegan soups, rice and quinoa bowls, and a daily selection of vegan and wheat/gluten free baked goods.
Living Juice, Wheatgrass and Smoothies
Always fresh and never pasteurized, our juices are prepared and juiced to order. Different from the ubiquitous corporate juice and smoothie chain, we offer beautiful 100% juice drinks without unhealthy, sugary fillers and supplements of dubious nutritional value. Nutrients and vitamins in fresh produce are much more readily absorbed by the body than pills or supplements. As the old adage goes "make your juicer your drugstore."
Espresso and Tea Done Right Stumptown Coffee Roasters, based in Portland, OR, is committed to high quality coffee using business practices that support independent farmers through direct-trade. We work with Stumptown to find a seasonal offering that best suits the cafe's atmosphere and its mission statement. Our drip is always certified organic and direct-trade. Our espresso is a blend of direct-trade and organic coffees, also from Stumptown Coffee Roasters. Our loose-leaf tea is organic and comes to us via Mountain Rose Herbs in Oregon. Our milk is certified organic from Organic Valley, a co-op of family run organic farms.
Additionally, we recycle and compost more than 90% of our total waste and don't offer plastic utensils. Wireless internet is available and free. Thank you for choosing to support a small business that has chosen to support our world.
