one day in Seattle! suggestions?

I'm leaving my home here in Vermont at the end of August to attend college in Portland, OR. I'll be flying to Seattle and spending one night there, then driving a rental to Portland the next morning (and I'm sure I'll be fresh as a daisy for orientation and placement tests).

I need recs for lunch and dinner in Seattle, and breakfast either in the city or on the road. I'm pretty much vegetarian, love places with an emphasis on organic/locally produced food. I'm looking for somewhere casual and friendly, not *too* divey--bakery/cafe type places, and maybe somewhere a bit nicer for supper, preferably with entrees under twenty dollars (I'll be with my dear mother--last chance I'll have for a while to milk her for a meal).

A couple places I have in mind are Cafe Flora and Carmelita--any comments on either? Thanks for the help!
