Our daughter picked this restaurant & we are very glad she did! The food was well prepared, clean & scrumptious! We had the avocado pita (very tasty & savory), and 3 bowls - all of which were very delicious. The ambiance was quaint & next time may opt to eat @ the beach (3 -4 blocks away).

Took my family here for lunch & it was absolutely delicious! Super healthy food that tastes delicious. We had the avocado sandwich & avocado pita - perfect! You feel good after you finish eating, too. Great shakes & friendly atmosphere. Sat outside on the picnic table & enjoyed a beautiful Laguna afternoon with scrumptious food. Highly recommend.

The gourmet sprout sandwich is the best! The Stand is an old Laguna landmark and has a great reputation. They serve vegan & gluten free as well. They have an extensive menu with Pita sandwiches, burritos etc. Also have shakes & smoothies. It's a walk up place with a few tables & stools outside. Very comfortable. We got our sandwiches...

Love that this place is within walking distance of my hotel. The menu options are bountiful, so much to choose from! We shared a avocado and hummus sandwich on the cheesy rosemary bread and it was outstanding. The chips that came with it were tasty too. The acai bowl we got to share was large and very good. The lady... More

The stand is a great place to get vegan food, smoothies, etc. Everything is hand crafted and delicious. The prices are reasonable, and it embodies the funky vibe of Laguna Beach. Seating is outdoor only, but that's perfect in paradise.

On holiday in Laguna, found The Stand for the best lunch stops of the week...loved the vegan burger so much, had to make return visit. Friendly, informed staff helped with our decision-making. It's alfafa sprouts-a-go-go here, and there's nothing wrong with that.

Old Laguna charm and healthy food keeps me coming back since the 1970's. You can skip fast food and meet some locals at this casual, rare gem.

Large portions, Great Food, Great Price. I'm not a vegetarian, but my wife is. The menu has everything (sans meat), and I was impressed with the quality and freshness of the food. A big complain of mine is that organic food places tend to leave me unfilled after spending $20 on sandwich with two pieces of arugula and a small... More
