Over the month, we are going to cover places with the best vegan options in Tacoma, so we'll kick it off with the new kid in town, Caffe Dei, an all vegetarian/super vegan-friendly cafe on 6th Ave. The firstthing you notice when you walk in is that the owners, Shuanna(vegan/raw foodie) and Shane (vegetarian), and staff are super friendly! They always are full of info and sincerely open to any suggestions to make the cafe even more awesome.
Onto the noms.....The drink menu is creative and unique. Shuanna especially is a true coffee snob in the friendliest and best sense of the word. When we aren't drinking
americanos, our absolute favorite is the picante mocha, which combines cayenne and chocolate, obviously one of the best flavor combinations in the whole world. There is also a delicious lavender syrup which makes for a great latte. Soy and rice milk are available. There is also a wide selection of loose leaf teas.
The food menu has a selection of sandwiches, raw food, a soup of the day, and bagels, nearly all of which are or can be made vegan. Baked goods include selections from Macrina Bakery,Flying Apron bakery, and Mighty O Donuts. Today we got down and dirty with the BBQ "Pulled Chicken" sandwich, a Daiya grilled cheese, and minestrone soup. Sandwiches comewith a side of chips with the option of adding soup for $2 more. Gluten-free options are available. Caffe Dei also recently expanded on their hours with plans to include beer and wine in the near future. There is a nice amount of seating, free WiFi, and art and jewelry from local artists that frequently rotates. All in all, we love to get fat here.
