What a joy to discover this little red barn with a vegan menu that sprawls across almost every wall. My traveling partner and I ate there twice in our short 3 day stay in Laguna Beach. We enjoyed almost everything we tried. The veggie rice burrito I had during my first stop was enough food for the entire day! And it was delicious. As was the frozen fruit "ice cream" a delightful treat to a long day of walking the beaches. There is outdoor seating on the wraparound porch. One table surrounds a tree and has the unique experience that you never know who you'll be sharing the table with!

If you enjoy a variety of vegetarian (and VEGAN) options, The Stand is well worth your time.

I was warned that there would a long line and yes there a LONG line. Good veggie wraps, loved the hummus spread on the wrap. Very large satisfying portions, it was just what we needed after eating out during our vacay in Laguna! Will come back on our next visit!

Our daughter is vegan, so we search for places for her while on vacation. Found this wonderful little treasure last trip to Laguna Beach and now its the first place we stop- and the last place as we head out of town. All vegan- all fresh- all amazing! If you are looking for an alternative to everything- whether your vegan or not- don't miss this wonderful little cafe!

As a vegan I'm always happy to find a vegan joint but this place takes the healthy hippy vibe too far and just leaves all the taste at the door. Nothing we ate we spiced properly and the flavor of all the dishes was bland as can be.

We are here in Laguna Beach at least once a year, visiting from the East, and we always visit The Stand at least once, maybe more often. This unprepossessing restaurant operating out of a barn-like structure just off the PCH is usually populated by locals. The food is uniformly healthy, natural, vegetarian or vegan, but delicious! Who'da thought healthy food could be so good? You order through a "take-out" window on the front and eat at tables outside, so don't plan on eating there in poor weather - just buy take-out. You order, pay and wait for them to call you forward to pickup your goodies. Definitely go for the avocado sandwich and a smoothie. There are a host of other great items written on the board posted around the order window.
