Respond to Review of Laughing Planet - Blair Blvd
by suesara47

Review: The staff is great, food is good and not too expensive, it is child friendly. I really appreciate any restaurant that gives vegetarians a place to eat, meet and hang out. I have to say I am so disappointed in the neg reviews (political). The restaurant never said they were vegan in the first place guys! This is Eugene, these people are trying - how many restaurants have YOU started?? How many people have YOU provided jobs for? Can we just stick to reviews to help people decided what restaurants to try and refrain from hurting others?

You sound like you're the manager. Being defensive and accusing other people of not starting their own vegan businesses? It's a totally illegitimate argument, like saying if you have a problem with America you should either love it as it is or leave it. I don't know if they necessarily say they are vegan or not but if they are a restaurant that "gives vegetarians a place to eat, meet, and hang out," as you say, then they should deliver actual vegetarian food. It's as easy as that.

Negative reviews ARE helpful for people trying to decide where to eat out. I don't think restaurants like Laughing Planet should be accepted for simply "trying" because they are clearly not trying very hard if there are chunks of meat in everything. That's not being considerate to the clientele and it is absolutely unacceptable. I would definitely want to be warned about a problem like that before eating anywhere!

Wouldn't the reviewer give it 5 happy cows if he/she was the owner? I think, flurbot, you overreacted to a legit review. He/she likes the food and cost. You can disagree but save the American diatribe... its a bit overboard.
I've only been here twice, but I didn't have any non-vegan items in my food, nor has anyone I have talked to about this place. Perhaps y'all have an agenda to bad mouth a legit cafe?
