Floret, a vegan and vegetarian restaurant opened earlier this year at Seattle-Tacoma International Airport in Washington. The 2000-square-foot restaurant is located near the new Delta lounge in the main terminal at the intersection of Concourses A and B. It serves exclusively vegetarian and vegan dishes, and we are super excited about it!
As many of us know, traveling as a vegetarian or vegan can be challenging, especially when it comes to food options at airports.
Floret vegetarian restaurant at Sea-Tac is a far cry from your regular airport food. This is premium veggie and vegan fare made from scratch on-site, with locally sourced ingredients. It will satisfy your veggie/vegan needs with a healthy variety of choices for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.
The 80-seat restaurant is full service, staffed by Cafe Flora employees, and helmed by chef Bernadette Biella.
8 things you’ll love about Floret restaurant at Sea-Tac Airport
1. Locally sourced ingredients.
We so love locally sourced ingredients and local purveyors. Floret gets its produce from Whistling Train Farm in Kent, dairy from Medosweet Farms, and eggs from Stiebrs Farms.

2. Ginger beer and kombucha on tap.
In addition to being the first vegetarian restaurant at Sea-Tac, Floret is the first place in the airport to serve Rachel’s Ginger Beer and Seattle-based Mystic Kombucha, both on tap.
For coffee snobs: A pair of La Marzocco espresso machines will dispense your caffeine fix.
3. Plenty of drinks to choose from.
They’ve got a large variety of non-alcoholic beverages that includes housemade sodas and shrubs.
4. Amazing breakfast sandwiches
Fantastic breakfast sandwiches include a buttermilk biscuit with fried egg, cheddar, and caramelized onion. They can do it on a gluten-free biscuit, too, if desired.
5. Vitamin C Kombucha Tonic
Their Vitamin C Kombucha Tonic sounds divine. It’s Mystic Kombucha with a housemade tonic of fresh mint, lime, grapefruit, camu camu, agave, cardamom, cayenne, and sea salt. Here’s the full menu.
6. Natural light
Don’t you just hate dark and dingey airport restaurants? You won’t find that here! Large conservatory windows fill the space with natural light and a view to the tarmac.
7. Fresh baked goods daily
Yep, you read that right. Floret pastries are made on-site daily.
8. Grab-and-go options
They offer grab-and-go foods that are portable, healthy and yummy. For example, breakfast sandwiches, housemade bread (including Cafe Flora’s signature vegan cinnamon rolls), healthy packed salads, and an extensive array of mixed grain bowls.
High-quality airport food is still relatively new. Floret is the first exclusively vegetarian and vegan restaurant to open at Sea-Tac, and one of just a handful of vegetarian airport restaurants in the US.
