Has potential - Run of the mill food. - Edit

This place shows a great effort with their branding and restaurant design and layout. Menu's mention "Vegan" in many areas and it's respected from the staff. Big relief from Veggie Grill. Take-out menu looks great on paper, water bar and seating is very decent. Unfortunately the food will always make-or-break a restaurant regardless of how ugly it is every-time (Like Proper Eats for example). The veggie tacos were very bland and ran thin to say the least, nice touch with the green sauce but it's not enough to be a hit. The burrito bowel with tofu was nothing to be exited about, everything is covered with black beans with a little glimpse of rice on the side. We actually had to order a 2nd order of rice - which is usually the base of a bowel. Small chucks of tofu hidden under some shredded lettuce. As for flavor… grab the salt shaker you'll need it. Laughing Planet needs to seriously focus more on their recipes and food and less on "staying busy". Try new dishes, try new chefs, taste their own food and get more clues from other restaurants that are know for their wonderful food. Overall, you are honestly better off going to Chipotle as you wont find any hearty portions here.

Great Restaurant for Vegetarians or Vegans - Edit

They even serve chicken for non-vegetarian friends. Their food is super delicious. It is a fun atmosphere too. They even have a location near Portland State University now.

Yummy, healthy food here! - Edit

This is a great option in Hillsdale, just beyond Gabriel Park. Large and very clean location, lots of parking, parking right by the door for order pickup (10 min. max). There's also a waiting area with lots of newspapers to read while you wait. The staff are friendly and efficient. Note that this location does not do fresh juice. I ordered the soup and salad combination with a side of plantains. The soup comes with a side of housemade focaccia or tortilla chips. My soup was a potato corn chowder, and it was light and delicious, as was the focaccia. My caeser salad, ordered vegan, actually arrived with cheese. The dressing and croutons were delicious, however. The staff apologized for the order and will give me a free burrito the next time I go there. The plantains weren't wonderful, but that was probably just because I was expecting crispy charred plantains, and these were just sauteed. All in all, they have a great healthy menu and I will be very happy to go back!

Pros: Healthy, Delicious, Reasonable Prices

Cons: Just be careful if you're vegan!
