We stopped in on the recommendation of a friend. It is easy to park and they have a side outdoor area, but the menu was a turn off. Vindaloo? really? There are Indian restaurants that actually know how to cook Indian food. It felt like a trying to be Berkeley when I was in college decades ago. The world has... More

They offer a wonderful selection of fresh organic ingredients and I've yet to have something that wasn't absolutely delicious. A great way to try new things and the cost is very reasonable.

Came to Eugene's Laughing Planet to try vegetarian fare. Tried an 'Eat Your Veggi' bowl, need to add a sauce to this basic and hearty dish. Also, tried veggi drink #4 wanting beet juice and the accompanying juices in that combo. Ended explore with Mango Lassi smoothie. Very filling, covered many food groups, but I could have enjoyed veggi bowl... More

A significant menu shift as of late has caused our family to stop going here, and to stop recommending this place to our B and B guests, friends and family. It is disappointing that this little franchise started out very plant-based, with emphasis on local, fresh offerings that everyone could eat. Now with the new meat heavy menu (pork and... More

Quality ingredients, quick service. It is always busy when I have been, so others must like it too. Really enjoy the bowls they make with sweet potatoes, black beans, and some type of protein. Good flavor, healthy, and filling. Great place for lunch!

Most often, we order food to go; most commonly it's a spanky's bowl and a veggie bowl. Their ingredients are whole and delicious, but my favorite thing about Laughing Planet is their welcoming, genuinely kind & caring staff. I always leave there with some form of a compliment being received and it's a beautiful/rare quality for restaurants these days.

Awesome, healthy food and excellent service everytime. I've never had a bad experience at either of the locations. Would recommend the burritos!

I've loved eating the healthy high quality food here. However, in the last year LP has gone very meaty and the amount of fresh vegetables in their offerings has gone down and down - many times when it says "vegetables" it means green bell peppers and onions with maybe a sprig of broccoli. I KNOW it can be much better... More
