“Good food, mediocre service”
Reviewed 22 May 2014

Went here for lunch. We really enjoyed the honey babe panini and pineapple smoothie. The staff was really nice after the patrons who were sitting at the bar left, which is about when we were getting ready to leave. Before that, we didn't receive much of any attention.
They have a lot of books. Staff was kind enough to let me keep one. It was worth the visit, but we won't be returning guests.

The Laughing Lizard is under new ownership with more consistent hours 8am-4pm daily for breakfast and lunch with friendly staff and a reasonably priced and updated menu! We hope you will come again and visit with us for a new experience.

“Great meal”
Reviewed 31 March 2014 via mobile

Fantastic healthy options. Smoothies were fantastic. The hot flatbread sandwiches were delicious. The place looks like a dive from the outside but looks can be deceiving. Don't pass this place without stopping in.

“always good”
Reviewed 29 March 2014

The food is very good though the service is extremely slow maybe because the owner is also the only cook and everything is made to order. Definitely try her pumpkin soup, it is great.

“Loved this place!”
Reviewed 24 March 2014

Very friendly staff and a super-relaxed vibe. We had a simple breakfast burrito and the limeade with brown sugar–both were delicious. They also have wi-fi, which is a nice bonus if you want to hop online.

“Wonderful lunch”
Reviewed 13 December 2013

We were on our way to the Glass Window Bridge and stopped in at this cute little place. We were surprised with the tasty food since we were just wanting a little something to get us by. This place offered much more. Free WiFi and scenic views for indoor or outdoor seating. Our smoothies and wraps were delectable.
