About Us

Opened in 1986, Silence-Heart-Nest is one of the oldest vegetarian restaurants in Seattle. Owned and operated by students of spiritual master Sri Chinmoy, we aspire to create a small corner of the world that not only serves delicious vegetarian and vegan food, but provides a peaceful oasis in the hustle and bustle of the city, inundated with the spirituality, philosophy, music and art of Sri Chinmoy.

Through meditation, music, art, literature and athletics, Sri Chinmoy dedicated his life to the goal of world peace. He also encouraged his students to open up businesses where they could serve the public. These enterprises seek to provide customers with a unique and peaceful environment to enjoy their meal, tea or shopping experience. Sri Chinmoy called them “divine enterprises” to emphasize this aspect; he asked his students working in these enterprises to feel that they are serving the divine inside each customer.
