Anyone can cook a steak. It takes skill to prepare vegetarian meals as served here. Respectable drink menu. Walk around old down-town and enjoy a trip back in time to the 60s.

Perfect for the vegan, vegetarian, regardless of one's preference of style of following. A most accommodating kitchen to please their patrons!

My whole family loves eating at The Laughing Seed and we are not vegan ! The food is super fresh and top quality. My favorite is the Asian Fusion Bowl, whole wheat udon noodles tossed in sweet chili-peanut sauce and served over a salad of mixed greens, grated carrots, red cabbage, blanched broccoli, and daikon radish, topped with pumpkin and sunflower seeds. The peanut sauce is to die for ! My husband loves the Indian Thali Plate, vegetable curry, dal, aromatic white
basmati rice, salad, chutney, organic yogurt, chapatti and papadam. We have never ordered anything that wasn't fantastic ! The servers are friendly and very knowledgeable of the food they serve. The atmosphere is usually quiet even though it is a very popular spot and loaded with people. It is located downtown near shopping and other activities. With any luck they will have there infamous Chocolate Ginger Cake, OMG, it is amazing !

The food was very flavorfuł. My husband ate his entire plate, even though he's not into healthy vegetarian style food. My girls enjoyed the smoothies. Service was very good, friendly and understanding of our young past naptime girls. I would have rated it a better atmosphere if the bum muscian across the street had not made a nasty comment to us, upon leaving. I guess he does that if you don't tip him...although the restaurant really probably has no control over him. (We sat outside) inside looked lovely though.

I love their outdoor seating, such a lovely street to be on. They have wonderful cocktails, tonics, juices, and smoothies. Everyone must try their hempnut burger and fries, BEST IN TOWN!!! Their salads are amazing too. Love this place!!!
