The Shire Cafe in Arlington, WA

Yes…there IS a vegetarian restaurant in Arlington, WA.  Who knew?  (Me!)

I actually found out about The Shire Cafe when I started volunteering at  New Moon Farm Goat Rescue and Sanctuary four years ago (which is also located in Arlington).

On Fridays, I scoop the poop at the farm, and then I eat lunch at The Shire Cafe– with the owner of the goat rescue (my friend 🙂 ).  On weekends, after mountain biking, Eric and I like to drop in for a cold Mirror Pond and some dinner.

Located in the same building (the Mirkwood), is Mordor Tattoo.  Savannah did my “vegan” wrist tattoo.

The Mirkwood has an ongoing live music schedule.  (Past our bedtimes!)

Back to the food!!

Just about everything on the menu can be made vegan.  There’s always a homemade vegan soup of the day.  Most entrees come with salad, soup or fries.  I highly recommend the soup, no matter what flavor is featured.  Here are some pictures to make your mouth water 🙂 …
