First, it was poke and now it’s Jewish delis. Seattle’s Capitol Hill is on one with the Jewish food scene and now a newcomer is about to hit the scene. Ben & Esther’s is a brand new vegan Jewish deli coming to the hill this summer.

If you’re unfamiliar, Ben & Esther’s is a popular vegan chain operating up and down the west coast in both Oregon and California. The Capitol Hill location will be the first in Seattle and Washington as a whole. It will open in the old Capitol Coffee Works space and has a goal of opening by September 1st.

The menu includes items like bagels, bagel sandwiches, and deli sandwiches. You can choose between a whole assortment of bagel flavors like poppy, pumpernickel, sesame, and more. There are also shmears like veggie, “lox”, and scallion among others. Remember everything on the menu is vegan so you can enjoy plant-based lox, tuna salad, whitefish, and more without the meat.

Until more details are announced on an exact opening date, your best bet is to keep up with Ben & Esther’s through their social media.
