So good - Edit

Great place in a great area. Near the mardi gras parade routes. What we ordered was absolutely delicious but it was difficult to choose cos everything looked delicious. Brunch menu was only available on weekends.

Pros: Many delicious choices., great area, vegan beignets

Cons: brunch only available on weekends

Friendly little place - Edit

We are traveling and always looking for vegan place, we were happy to find this one.

We ate on the terrace and took the nuggets, artichoke cakes and chili fries. The nugget was impressive, it tasted just like the "real" thing! The artichoke cake was "OH MY". And the chili fries a little bit disappointed because it is the type of thing I can do myself and the "waffle" fries are not my preferred type of fries. Coming from Quebec, the fries are a big thing for us :)

Beside the food, the service and place was friendly. They adopt a green thinking all the way to the soap in the bathroom. It is a nice attention to details.

Pros: Great food, Small friendly place, Green

Cons: Far from downtown

No. No. No. - Edit

I’m so done with this overpriced hipster joint. I’ve given it many opportunities. After being snapped at twice by a server upon entering yesterday, I’m throwing my hands in the air. It’s the attitude of people like this, plus the pretentious, cooler than thou attitude and sky high prices that make people dislike vegans. Just, NO.

Seriously...yum. - Edit

This was by far our favourite restaurant in New Orleans. A bit of a walk out of the core, but it was cool to see a different part of the city. You can also take public transit, and it gets you a block away, which is super convenient.
The menu here is to-die-for. Our first visit, we ordered the gumbo and po boy...and then another po boy, because it was THAT delicious. We couldn't get over it. Like...the best sandwich I have ever had. We had the eggplant one, and we are just hoping we can somehow recreate it at home in Canada.
The gumbo was insanely flavourful!
Our second visit...we had the po boy again, of course ;) We also had the nachos to start...and daaaaaammnnn. Sooo good, filling, and wonderful cashew cheeze sauce to top it all off. Of course, we had to get the vegan version of the beignet, and we were NOT disappointed at all. So sweet. Not as fluffy as the original, but tasted sooooo delicious. We only wish we could have come here every day. Soooooooooo good!! GO!!!

Pros: The atmosphere, The menu options, abound! SOOO good!, The prices

Cons: A little far from city centre

Nice little place food is good - Edit

Had the quesadilla and the po’boy the quesadilla was really good, the po’boy was good but the bread was not toasted enough so it went a bit soggy, other than that the place is full of options, had some beignets as dessert and they were really really good. The location is a bit challenging if you coming from out of town, I went walking from canal street, where I was staying, and it was a mile away, through the museum district which is nice to see, but just before the restaurant there is an area not so nice of about maybe 2 blocks, other than that it’s a totally worth place to eat

Pros: Good food, All vegan options, Beignets

Cons: Area is in development

LOVE!! - Edit

My friend and I went crazy in here, spending over $80. We started with artichoke cakes (best things ever) and she had a seitan po boy that was three special while I had a soup/salad combo of taco salad and chili. When we discovered how delicious the food is, we decided we needed to order dinner to go.

But first, we had beignets. She grew up in LA so she's had them before but it was a first for me. I thought they were incredible. She really liked them too.

Then we ordered quesadillas and pad thai to go (This is a raw dish) for dinner. My friend also ordered a juice. Everything was delicious. We were very happy with our choice of Seed during our extremely brief visit to New Orleans.

Additional to the delicious food is the attractive decor, super friendly service, amazingly fast chefs, and pleasant atmosphere!

Highly recommended.

Pros: Great food, Something for everyone, Reasonable prices

Cons: parking

Food not worth the price. - Edit

Lunch for two cost $60 on a weekday. We’ve sent food back to the kitchen on each of the two times we’ve been there and would rate it disappointing for the price. We do love the atmosphere and there is a tiny vegan art shop next door that’s worth a visit while you’re there.

Pros: bohemian atmosphere, wait staff are friendly and accommodating, the tofu scramble is bomb

Cons: the food is inconsistent, busy neighborhood - hard to find a sparking spot, price:quality is low (bland, too mushy, too dry, e

A must stop for vegans visiting NOLA - Edit

We came the day after Christmas and their power was out. Fortunately, they had a solar powered kitchen so they were able to make almost everything on the menu minus juices and smoothies, how awesome. My family of 6 tried several different items, the tofu po’boy, the crispy fried tofu (same tofu as in the sandwich which did make me wish I tried the eggplant sandwich instead lol), the gumbo with spicy seitan, the Caesar salad, and the beignets (a must try). I was so excited to finally be able to try beignets after seeing them all around the city, none of which were vegan. They did not disappoint, and even came out warm.

Pros: 100% vegan, large selection, fresh

Cons: street parking

Amazing Vegan Food - Edit

I absolutely loved the meal that I shared with friends at Seed! We stopped in for brunch and ordered the nuevos rancheros southern fried nuggets and waffles, grits and grillades, and an order of beignets. Everything was delish! My only regret is not making it back to try their lunch items!

Pros: Amazing vegan food

Fully comforting and flavorful vegan cuisine - Edit

I admire this place. I am so invested in the ability to get hot, fluffy vegan beignets or crispy, packed tofu poboys that I am willing to spend 50 minutes on two of the sub par New Orleans public transportation lines in order to make it to this restaurant from north of the city.

The people are friendly and every menu item I have ever tried has been highly delicious and fulfilling. This includes the vegan take on mac and cheese, the gumbo, the southern fried po' boy, the beignets, the fried tofu nuggets, and the barbecue sandwich. They are all beyond your expectations of quality for any restaurant-served dish and they will fill your stomach. It is a cozy, modern, and lightly decorated space in the restaurant. I would dine here weekly if I lived closer.

Pros: Food as good as or better than traditional version, Laid back, sleek atmosphere and neighborhood, Very large range of menu items to select from

Cons: Items can get slightly pricey, Wait can sometimes be longer during peak hours

BEST VEGAN FOOD EVER - Edit

I visited this place with a couple of my friends yesterday. IT WAS THE BEST THING I'VE EVER DONE. I'm seriously obsessed. I may live 4 hours away from New Orleans, BUT I WILL MAKE THE FULL TRIP TO HAVE THIS FOOD AGAIN. The southern style po boy was phenomenal. The mac & cheese was delicious. The artichoke cakes were mind blowing. I can't recommend this place enough. Do yourself a favor: buy everything on the menu.

Pros: Many options to choose from, AMAZING server , great

Cons: Can get pricey very quickly

Ate here multiple time when visiting NO for a big conference. Can walk from convention center. Beignets were awesome, also tried the eggplant poboy, kale salad and a pineapple ginger smoothie. Would have liked one of everything on the menu!
They also take phone orders to go. Would def recommend!

Food was delicious but service is lacking - Edit

While the food is very good, the service wasn’t superb. Granted it was during dinner time, but at least treat customers like more than a tab. Also seating is really confined to the point of little to no personal space.

Pros: food

Cons: service , seating

Great experience!!! - Edit

I had an amazing lunch at Seed today! I have been on a road trip with my boyfriend for the past 3 weeks in the south and eating well, but aching for some good veg food. I was so excited to check out an entirely veg-friendly restaurant while he was working today. I found Seed on happy cow and walked there from my hotel in the French Quarter (about a mile). Felt safe during the entire walk and got great and speedy service at the restaurant.
I got the "standard juice", artichoke cakes, and BBQ sandwich. The food came out incredibly quickly and was soooo good. The artichoke cakes were light and crispy and the sandwich was smothered in good southern bbq sauce with a crisp apple slaw on it.
To address some cons that others have written, it was a little pricy, but I also went a little overboard bc I was excited! You can get one dish for $10-12. I was also there in the middle of the day, so service and food arrival were speedy!
