This natural food eatery isn't fancy to look at but the food is very good. We ate two meals there in two days and returned before leaving town for the frozen fruit treat ( mango was delicious). Of the four entrees we tried our favorites were the rice and bean and guacamole burrito and the bean pate and guacamole sandwich... More

This is a great spot if you're wanting a quick healthy meal/snack. I had the Avocado sandwich. It was served on whole wheat bread with big slices of avocado, tomato, sprouts and a lemon herb dressing. It was fantastic and at a reasonable price. I highly recommend this place!

The Stand has wonderful vegetarian food. Their juices are incredible and all of their dishes they bring to the table make you feel enlightened after eating them. I recommend this place to anyone looking for a well-priced and well-deserved meal travelling and exploring around Laguna Beach. It's not on PCH but is only one block off and the staff is... More

This is one of the few healthy eateries in Laguna- cute vibe, great location by Thalia street, but beware...the food is NOT guaranteed to be ORGANIC! Why wouldn't it be??? I'd pay a couple bucks extra to make sure it was!

Any trip anywhere near Laguna Beach must include a stop at The Stand for lunch! This quirky little carry-out with limited seating, is worth a detour. The list of healthy food is long and inventive. All dishes are uniformly excellent. The funky atmosphere is enhanced by lots of posters and handouts for liberal causes and seating at the front table... More

We never miss this place when in Laguna. I will say the staff always acts a little annoyed when you are trying to decide what you want....not really rude per say but borderline put out. We keep coming back though because the food is fresh and healthy

Perfect for a lunch spot only 1 blck off the beach. Very tasty vegetarian and vegan selections. Organic. Its a must do for a healthy and affordable stop in Laguna Beach.

Love this place. It has been yrs since I've been here and it is still the same. Great food, juice, smoothies. Grab some good food cross the street and go down on the beach and enjoy your meal. Best ever.

Had the pleasure of having Takeaway . The choice of menu is superb, I went Saturday Evening and had a Potatoe Plate, the servings were piled high and it was lovely. I went back on Sunday for lunch and had a Veggie Burger and it was bursting with wonderfulness. The Corn Chowder Soup was wholesome and enjkyable. The ladies who... More
