The Good Earth Planet Burger is not vegan! I've eaten this burger so many times and have been told it's vegan. Last time I went there and tried to order the burger I was told they put butter and breadcrumbs in it, both ingredients make it not vegan. I will never go to this establishment again. Staff is obviously completely unknowledgeable on what veganism is and I wouldn't trust them to know what else on their menu is or isn't vegan.

As a vegetarian I have loved going to Good Earth for years. I recently went there for the first time since transitioning to being a vegan. I was a bit disapointed in the menu descriptions and the options for vegans. For example- I ordered a corn soup, the description was clear to point out it had veggie broth in it and everything else listed was vegan friendly too. I then found out it had cream in it. I was frustrated that a major ingredient like this was excluded from the description.

On their dessert menu that had Oatscreme which I was really looking forward to. About 10 minutes after I ordered it (and after my husband recieved his non-vegan dessert) they informed me they were out of it and had no other vegan dessert options. If we would have known this right away we both would have passed on dessert.

I don't understand the negative reviews for this place. I go here all the time and love it. The bean burger (Planet Burger - vegan) is fantastic! It doesn't hold together the greatest, but I think it tastes delicious so who cares? It's probably my favorite thing there. When I go for breakfast I love the oatmeal with fresh fruit on the side. The atmosphere is very laid back and friendly. I've been there tons and never had a bad experience!

I am very confused by the negative reviews for this place. I went for the first time last weekend and I had an excellent experience. The waitress knew exactly what was and was not vegan. I had their veggie burger and it was so good. There were tons of good looking things on the menu. The person I was there with ordered a sandwich and asked for no celery on it. It came with celery on it anyway, so he picked it off. The waitress noticed the celery on his plate and comped his entire meal without his even asking. The service was top-notch and the food was awesome. I will be returning soon to try other things.

They had a soup sampler offer that was good, but otherwise, the food is just so-so. The Galleria mall is just too obnoxious for me to handle.

This place is horrible. I went there a few years ago and would never go back. They seated us outdoors by the mall dumpsters, which attracted hoards of flies and smelled awful--I couldn't believe it. We were also packed so closely to the other tables that we couldn't really have a conversation and the busboys kept running into us as they tried to squeeze by. My veggie burger was so mushy that it almost didn't hold together, and it tasted pretty bland. I can't remember what my friend had, but he hated it too.

I'm from Denver/Boulder where we have many wonderful vegetarian and health oriented choices in our menus as well as many resturants. It has been difficult to spend most of the last 3 years in Northern MN and not have the choices and excellent food I'm used to. Finding the Good Earth in Mpls is GREAT! My sis and I went the other night... enjoyed the ambiance, as well as, both of our meals, feeling they were "overportioned" for the price. (Not overpriced as one review mentions) Each time I return to Mpls area, I will make sure to eat there.

The only reason this place gets a 3 instead of a 2 is because they have excellent smoothies and juice (which are a little pricey). I used to take seminars nearby and frequently had lunches there during breaks. The food isn't great for what you're paying, and there aren't that many vegan options. But, if you're stuck in Edina and need to have lunch during a seminar break, it's alright. Oh, and I agree, the tea is disgusting.

the flat bread thingies mentioned in the previous review aren't vegan. i mistakenly believed so, and was about to purchase a whole bag of them from their bakery case when i looked at the nutrion info and saw they contain cholestoral. cholestoral = animal ingredients. i don't know exectly what it is that makes them non-vegan, since they don't list the ingredients, but they're not vegan.

the only good thing about this joint is their lemonade. it's the best! but way expensive and they fill the glass about 3/4 full of ice, so you don't even get much of the only decent thing they have there.

oh yeah, their tea is nasty.
