Respond to Review of Laughing Planet Cafe - Belmont
Review: I feel it is necessary to say something about laughing planet cafe. I did not really ever ponder their prices until today. Ya sure the rice cheese awesome but... I bought a bean and cheese burrito. When you read the description for this burrito, it includes tillamook cheese. The cafe charges 4.25 for a burrito that includes the dairy cheese. The VEGAN version is 5.75 I called the cafe. The explaination went like this... The tillamook cheese is 75 cents. The burrito is 4.25 minus the 75 cents for not eating the dairy cheese. Therefore the vegan price is factored at 3.50 (the burrito price minus the real cheese) plus 2.25 for the rice cheese equals 5.75. On top of the rice cheese (2.25) ...to vegan deluxe (add guac and vegan sour cream) is 2.50 This a total of 4.75 in upgrades to the 3.50 burrito. A total cost of 8.25 for the vegan. A non vegan pays a total of 6.50 for the same option. The burrito is 4.25 (which includes the dairy cheese) plus 2.25 for guac and dairy sour cream. Yes, we have a special diet. We always end up paying more. This is a huge price difference. I feel the cafe is taking advantage of our dietary needs. Please just be aware of how much more a vegan ends up paying for a meal than a none vegan at the cafe.
