A Delicious St. Louis Restaurant For Vegans And Vegetarians
St. Louis’ Seedz Cafe in the DeMun neighborhood is a haven of nutrient-dense vegan and vegetarian eats that break with stereotypes about the green-dining way of life. We recommend stopping by on a nice day and staking out a place on the patio. The knowledgeable staff will recommend dishes for the undecided or point diners in the direction of the several varieties of smoothies and fresh fruit and vegetable juices.
The raw pad Thai is to die for, made with raw zucchini noodles and a garlic jalapeno peanut sauce with carrots, green onions and bean sprouts served on a bed of spinach. The tempeh reuben is also delicious, which you can order as a wrap or deli-style, made with marinated tempeh, thousand island sauce, sauerkraut, lettuce, tomato and sprouts. You also can’t run awry with the rawvioli, a play on the restaurant’s commitment to fresh ingredients you can see and pronounce, often sourced from local purveyors. The rawvioli is made from sliced golden beets stuffed with walnut pesto, laid atop a bed of greens and finished with sprouts.
Also, don’t sell this establishment short just because it’s tailor-made for vegetarians. Bring the meat-lover in your life to try one of the tempeh dishes or the rawvioli; you might just get them hooked on the plant-based way of life.
