Does anyone know of Raw Cafes/Restaurants in Seattle, as well as places that serve great raw food?

Surprisingly considering how many vegan and vegetarian restaurants there are here, there is only one "raw" restaurant and it is not even totally raw anymore, they added some cooked vegan options. But it is yummy and organic and everyday they have several raw entree, desserts, and smoothies. Their pesto on zucchini noodles is very good, their desserts are always awesome. I've heard their pizza is really good, although I don't think they have it everyday. The only thing that I tried there that I didn't like was their raw lasagna. They are called Chaco Canyon and they are in the University District.

They used to have several raw restaurants, and they even had a raw Bed and Breakfast too, but Seattle is cold, and although we do have tons of ethnic restaurants, the raw ones just don't do well.
I know a ton of great raw chefs here, they put on dinners all the time, but your'e gonna pay, big time, just to stand in line for an hour, grab a plate, serve yourself, and sit on the floor and eat, it's about $45 to $60 for that priveledge, so I don't go, I used to assistant chef for them, that was okay, I learned alot, but I won't pay that price for what you get.
You can go to the local potlucks at www.rawseattle.org, they have lots of potlucks, at least one a month, usually two.
All you have to do is show up, bring food, visit and eat, I've never gone actually, but I hear they are great.
I'm always way too busy for the 2 hour drive up there, staying then the 2 hour drive back home.

I am glad for your question. My husband will be interviewing in Seattle soon so we may be moving there. He is also interviewing in Ohio (SE). Are there any raw food places in Ohio?

Thanks everyone. The food on their site looks delicious. I am also curious about grocery stores that sell fresh fruit and veggies in the downtown area.

Pike Place Market, there is no better place, all privately family owned little shops, lots of ethnic, and tons of fresh fruits, veggies and flowers, have your palm read, see original art, it is THE PLACE TO GO, you can't go to Seattle unless you "do the market" The sign of "PUBLIC MARKET" is in every movie about Seattle I have ever seen, like "sleepless" etc.
