Pros: Tasty food, healthy, great atmosphere

Cons: Pricey

Wanted to see what eating "raw" foods would be like. The "pizza" was decent, but the green coconut curry was a little tough to eat - the hardness of the veggies made my mouth hurt after awhile, and the spiciness (kind of like a cabbage/horseradish-type spicy, not a pepper-type spicy) was hard to eat much of.
On the other hand, the raw brownie was excellent - very light, not too sweet - but it was a very tiny piece for the price.
We felt virtuous after eating here, but not sure if we'll be back.

this is an interesting vegan place. I got a banana and apple smoothie with basil and it was super yummy. Kinda pricey, but one of the best vegan places in the area.

I'm vegan and I brought my non-vegan meat loving friends here and even they loved the food!
To me, that says enough.
The atmosphere is pleasant and there are little plants for decoration scattered around. They have all sorts of deserts and boy are they delicious. It takes a little while for your food to be done but when it reaches those taste buds, you'll agree that it was worth the wait.

I highly recommend this charming cafe to anyone. It's in a great location too. Grabbing a bite to eat at Chaco Canyon and then walking around University District is a fantastic way to spend the day!

Pros: Good, exciting food

Cons: A little bit of a wait to recieve food

.

Their new space is open, airy, light-filled; a lovely cafe setting. Something about this place reminds me a little of the Elliot Bay Bookstore. You will find unique and creative cuisine here, catered especially for raw diets and healthy gurus. It's a bit pricey, and the food I have had so far is just okay, but this really is the only restaurant of its kind in Seattle. A wide array of vegan, raw, even gluten-free deserts await you when you walk in; I recommend trying some. Staff is friendly too. Another reason to eat here is that the food and beverages are almost all organic!
And, extra bonus points: They recycle and compost!!!

Cons: expensive for the serving size

The BEST food in the entire state of Washington. Consistently delicious, fresh, and organic. Great service. If you actually care what you are putting into your mouth and your the mouth of your family - this is the only restaurant you should spend your money at. Oh, and the prices are incredibly reasonable.

If you haven't heard, Chaco Canyon has moved from its tiny original location just a block to the west (corner of 50th and 12th, across from the YMCA), and WOW what a change! The old place was quaint, if not a bit musty and cramped. The new location is bright, airy and beautiful. As a longtime regular customer, I must say that the change in environment has brought a huge change to everything else. The menu is more extensive. The notorious wait time for food and the frequent outtages of menu items are a thing of the past. The friendly hippie staff from before has been transformed into a bright, cheerful and (as far as I can tell) almost entirely female one. Best of all, the food as always fresh, imaginative, affordable and delicious. I hate going into a cafe and seeing the same items you see everywhere else; Chaco Canyon truly strives towards originality and variety on its menu. If you've never been, go check them out!

It's great to have somewhere that offers Raw food! Food is good and on par with the cost. Friendly, deli like service.
The Raw desserts are incredible, and well worth going for that alone!
It's great to have Chaco Canyon, but Seattle is overdue in getting a Raw Vegan 'Fine dining' choice.

I ate here this week for the first time. I had the avacado and tomato sandwich- sounds kinda boring, but it was the best I ever had! The bread they used was to die for and the 7003 juice which was just delicious.
They are a littl tricky to find because they are situated below another restaurant, but once you find it you are in for a treat!

As a fairly recent vegan, I have been slowly trying all the places in town and i just LOVE this place! The people are so friendly, the food is great, free wireless a huge plus. The thai grinder is always a winner and the pizza! The organic juice menu is awesome too, with prices you can't beat. Thank you for making vegan life a bit easier!

We always have trouble finding good small cafes that don't feel too hip or pretentious. Chaco Canyon is wonderful. The food was excellent, the small space was cozy, the staff seemed like they were the owners, the prices were good and we were able to accommodate my son's vegan girlfriend! We will go back

PROS: Cozy, Excellent Food, U district
CONS: none!

The food was good when we finally got it. They didn't have any soup, they didn't have any hummus so I got my third choice the pesto melt. It was very good. My friend had the lasagna. She was surprised and thought it was weird, but she ate every bite. I enjoyed the menu and will probably eat here again as there are several items I want to try. Great fresh juice menu.

I picked this restaurant because I avoid eating dairy or wheat. I really like raw food and the menu is creative and reasonably priced. I wasn't the least disappointed in the food or menu.

Service was minimal and what we got was in slow motion. We were basically ignored the rest of the time. If your over 21 and have expectations about customer service you might want to consider ordering to go.

Pros: Food, Juice

Cons: Service, In musty basement

Their focus is on raw, healthy foods and juices. If you are vegan or vegetarian you will love this place. The foods are flavorful and delicious. Their juices, too, are yummy and healthy. The atmosphere is very relaxed. The food is made to order, very fresh, and organic, when possible. Your food may take awhile, but it is worth the wait! If you have any special dietary needs they will happily accomodate you. Delicious, healthy food! and I don't feel all "heavy" after I eat here like many restaurants.

I think the previous reviewer had some valid points, but I just needed to put in my $0.02 as a "longtime" customer of Chaco Canyon. Yes, their food tends towards the simple side and they do tend toward "raw patty" dishes. But given their pricing ($4-$7) one can't expect the dishes that are served in luminarious raw restaurants such as Juliano's and Roxanne's (which cost literally 5-10 times as much for a meal). At $5.95, their Thai Grinder is a bargain -- actually, an amazing deal considering the cafe is "98 percent" organic.

Though not a dedicated raw foodist myself, I eat there often with my also non-raw foodist partner. Their meals are organic, affordable, fresh and delicious. I would encourage anybody, no matter what their diet, to give it a try when they're in the neighborhood -- you won't be disappointed.

Also, their espresso rocks!

With an amazing ambiance and wonderful staff, Chaco Canyon Cafe seems like it should be a raw foodists dream. And, in some ways it is. The prices are good (meals under $8) and the options tantalizing (spinach lasagne, spicy thai grinder) ... but the dishes won't woo anybody who isn't familiar with raw foods. Perhaps I've been spoiled by the raw restaurants in Los Angeles and the Bay Area, but Chaco Canyon's food fell into the raw foods trap of "ground up stuff in a patty on a plate of greens." Dedicated raw foodists will celebrate (the dishes are tasty and hearty), but those unfamiliar with the cuisine won't be swayed....unlike, say, Raw in Santa Monica, where I could bring my carnivourous friends and watch them drool over an all raw, but all amazing meal.

You cant touch the top notch service, supreme quality of food... and the beyond reasonable prices. After living in Seattle a year and visiting dozens of coffee shops Chaco is hands down my favorite. Free internet too!

I love this cafe! Above and beyond the free wireless, this cafe offers a friendly, warm atmosphere. The juices are delicious, well-balanced, and organic.

The food is the best in the city! Raw and cooked alike I know I'm in for a treat when I visit chaco canyon.

Suggestions: Emerald City Juice, and the Spicy Thai Grinder. Try the specials, they're amazing!

I've never been a health nut or anything, but eating and drinking at Chaco makes me high. The juices are really spunky and the veggie foods are creative and filling. They have coffee, but the juice is all I need to get going.
