About Watercourse

Watercourse Foods originally opened in 1998 on 13th Ave. in Capitol Hill as a small vegetarian cafe. The name Watercourse comes from the philosophy of the "water course way" which in essence means to take the path of least harm.

Watercourse isn't just a restaurant – we seek out opportunities to support those we are connected to, and uplift the voices that make our city exceptional. Our true passion is what we serve and how we serve it to all those that come to eat with us.

We are a scratch kitchen that focuses on utilizing local vendors, sustainable
business practices, and seeking to give more than we take.
We offer a wide variety of menu items that are accessible to many dietary restrictions, and we cultivate an environment of inclusivity.
Our menu items are free of artificial colors, preservatives, flavors, and hydrogenated fats. We make food to nourish our community with fresh ingredients. We are both a neighborhood gathering place and a world-wide destination.
