Laughing Seed Cafe
The food was very good, and we had a great, very cheerful and friendly server. Love this place!
What a great surprise! Very interesting menu with many tempting offerings. I had the onion soup. The server said it was the best onion soup she's ever had, I have to agree with her. The shitake mushroom broth was so flavorful.
My husband exclaimed “now I could eat vegetarian every day if it tasted like this!” The Brussels sprouts were a huge hit as was my Butternut squash risotto! Our waitress was spot on and the decor was charming.
Laughing seed is one of our favorite restaurants in Asheville. We highly recommend it!
This place is amazing!!!! I always love eating here the food is always so good!
Great gluten free, vegetarian, and vegan food from the appetizers to the deserts.
As always, amazing food and excellent service!
First time visiting. Everyone was friendly. Arrived a few minutes early of reservation. Seated right away. Service spot on and timely. Appetizer to main meal timed well. Delicious meal as we tried 5 different items. Recommend highly.
Great vegan and vegetarian food! Cocktails were yummy too. Maybe a tad pricey, but I think it’s worth it!
Delicious food! So nice to have such an appetizing selection. Can’t wait to return for another meal.
Loved! It was my Mom’s first tempeh experience and she said the Reuben was one of the best she has had.
would recommend the windows be washed as it was difficult to see out onto street and all there was to see out there!
Did take a bit to flag down server to ask for something after plates were served.
Would def go back again!
We went for a birthday celebration and enjoyed a great selection of locally sourced, vegan options.We loved the atmosphere, the food, and the portion size. What a great spot in Downtown Asheville. We'll definitely be back!
I always make a point to eat here when I come to Asheville. Great food! Great service. Love the kombucha on tap, the cookies too.
I am a vegetarian , but all the dishes I ordered had a replicated flavor of meat in them. I did not enjoy the taste, sorry about that.
Everything was mostly great except the coffee was lukewarm and two of the four brunch meals were not very hot either.
Great for vegan and vegetarian meals offering a variety of choices on the menu. Quiet atmosphere as the crowds ebbed and flowed throughout the night.
Very nice place! Friendly staff, great food, great location
Only one word comes to mind to describe our experience: PHENOMENAL! We have eaten at many places, in many locales, but Laughing Seed quickly made it up to one of our top, favorite restaurants.
Reading other reviews, we were expecting really warm and welcoming service. Our server was polite and civil, but certainly no warmth or real friendliness to the service. Our jalapeño fries were absolutely delicious and our entrees were quite tasty. We shared a slice of carrot cake for dessert and it was so incredibly dry that it crumbled as soon as a fork was taken to it. It tasted as though it had been sitting around and had become quite stale. Considering we paid over $100 for 3 people, we were disappointed in this restaurant and will not be returning if we visit Asheville again.
Loved this place- the specialty cocktails were amazing and our food was fresh and flavorful!! I am neither a vegan nor a vegetarian but went with my daughter, who is vegan, and loved everything we ate!!! Delicious
Loved my shepherds pie and pumpkin cheesecake. Side salad dressing was excellent.
Very flavorful. Wife and I enjoyed our dishes. Daughter was disappointed that the pizza was made with wheat pita.
Excellent vegetarian prep with outstanding flavors, presentation, many interesting selections, and unique spin. The birthday girl loved it! The meat-eater loved it, and the tofu with thai green curry plate tasted like southern fried chicken, lol. We wish this family-owned concept could be replicated with same authenticity and finesse elsewhere!
We visited Asheville for the weekend to explore as well as see a concert. Dinner on Sunday was SO good that we returned on Monday for another delicious meal at lunchtime.
I hailed the manager to let him know how absolutely awesome our meals were. Should we find ourselves in Asheville again, Laughing Seed is a must repeat!!!
Excellent variety of vegetarian dishes. Tasty and interesting!
Laughing Seed has been one of my favorites for years! My husband is gluten-free and dairy free, and there’s always plenty of choices for him here at this restaurant.
One of our favorite restaurants in Asheville!
Excellent vegetarian restaurant. I really enjoyed the cauliflower tacos. My wife, who is not a vegetarian, enjoyed the “burger”.
Outstanding healthy food selections. Top rate service. Sat outside in a beautiful evening. Everything was just superb! Highly recommend.
The food was great. It was creative and well spiced. I would definitely go back.
Amazing location and atmosphere. We had the risotto, buffalo cauliflower tacos and a Pimento cheese sandwich with tempeh bacon. Everything was tasty and we will definitely be going back.
I you are vegan or vegetarian, this is the place to go in Asheville, NC
Loved all of the dairy free and gluten free options! Everything was delicious.
Excellent food and atmosphere. Great patio for very enjoyable dinner.
Excellent salads. And the carrot cake is worth every calorie!!
Good food but wait staff was overwhelmed and we asked for outside seating and there were 3 open tables but were told they were reserved; we also had reservations ...the open tables remained open . The kitchen got an order mixed up but then comped for it. I think it was an off night. I would go again
Delicious food and drinks. My daughter is newly a vegetarian,so we took her and some teen friends to the Laughing Seed for her birthday dinner. Everyone was pleased! The veggie chorizo was delicious in the tostado and enchilada. The drinks and fresh juices mixes were very tasty. Service was excellent. We will come back for sure!
Amazing. The food was absolutely incredible with great vegan options!!
Jalapeño fries made it all worth while!
