We ate here three times, and everything was great. I had a Cuban Tempeh sandwich for lunch, the risotto for dinner, and the blue plate special for brunch. I particularly enjoyed the sandwich, the crispy wonton appetizer, and the jalapeno onion fries.

We also tried the Mayan Chocolate Poundcake, which was good, but the chocolate cake at French Broad Chocolate Lounge a few blocks away was better.

This place has been beyond terrific every time I've been there. I can't get over how many choices there are and how delicious all of them are! Good stuff. The wait staff is friendly and I love the cookies you can get on the way out ;)

This is usually touted as the "classic" vegetarian restaurant in Asheville (it's been here forever). For a long time, I thought the food was just okay and very overpriced.
However, I recently went there for Sunday brunch and was blown away by the number of vegan options! Not only was there a lot to choose from, but our server was super-friendly, and the food was delicious.
Highly recommended.

Best vegetarian menu ever. Drinks, Smoothies, lunches, dinners, something for everything. Utterly delicious and health food! So many choices. A mecca for any vegan or vegetarian. Service was good too. The only downside was the blah 1970s decor. But so what! This is an awesome restaurant.

Visited Laughing Seed during a recent trip to Asheville - our food was delicious. The menu has some great choices, so it was hard to pick one. Everyone in the restaurant seemed to be enjoying their meals also. The place has a very comfortable atmosphere. Quite a few families with children - very nice to see kids eating veggies. Highly recommended.

I ate here with my family over spring break. It was great. I'm the only vegetarian in my family, but everyone was able to find something. Even my brother who hates all veggies.

A touch on the formal side, the Laughing Seed is a vegetarian culinary institution in Asheville. It has an excellent reputation and the fare is always fresh and creative. Not the best for dining on a tight budget, but try their brunch for an affordable meal on the town.

Absolutely the best vegetarian restaurant i've ever been to. An extensive mostly vegan menu. Brunch is outstanding as well. Very healthy considering the alternative (rosettas). I always order off the specials menu and am always pleased. Mostly organic and local foods are used, and the menu actually says so! You have to go there!

This restaurant seemed to me a vegetarian restaurant for non vegetarians. The food was really greasy and way over priced. Maybe I just had a bad experience but I felt sick after eating there from the excess oil. People may like it if they are used to over cooked, greasy food, which most Americans are.

This is hands down the best vegetarian restaurant I have ever been to. I had gone to Asheville earlier this year, specifically to eat there, and didn't realize they were closed on Tuesdays...and it was a Tuesday! So last week I finally was able to make it there again...and it was worth the wait. I highly recommend the Pacific Rim Seitan, and I can't wait to go back and try something else!!
The ambiance is wonderful, I was there on a very sunny day, so the skylight added a nice bright touch, and the service was very attentive.

The Harmony is indeed the gleaming flagship of the Laughing Seed Menu... My personal favorite is the Lo-Country Roll-ups...

I was kind of partial to their old menu (from about 2 years ago). The New menu definitely pays heightened attention to creating picture perfect, more "gourmet quality" food... unfortunately, to do this well it seems they were forced to drop many items from the menu, and in my mind, the fact that I, as a vegetarian could stroll in and have a menu of almost 40+ options... was always the best part.

So, unfortunately, not as great a quantity these days... but a whole bunch of quality.

My friend and I ate at this wonderful and quaint little place and absolutely loved the harmony bowl. Unforgettable and flavorful!! Wow, highly recommended. I cannot wait to return to Ashevelle to try another fabulous dish.
