“Veggies Galore!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 15, 2013

Wonderful creative vegetarian & vegan selections that rival any meat dish anywhere. Plus: the menu offers a variety of selections that are flavorful & nutritious- sandwiches, salads, entrees, desserts. And the servers & staff just make you feel at home, right there in the Great Smoky Mountains. You gotta try this one! A Vegetarian's Treasure for sure- with outdoor seating available.

“Meat eaters Take Note”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 14, 2013

Even die hard carnivores like me will find something scrumptious at the Laughing Seed. The eggplant sandwich was excellent as was the EastWest Casa Dea. Give it a try.

“Veggie Nirvana”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 13, 2013

If you're a vegetarian, this is the Mecca. If you're a carnivore - I dare you to try something and claim it's not amazing. Great food for everyone. My favorite place to take visiting friends and family while they're in Asheville.

“Not to be missed”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 12, 2013

Really good vegetarian and vegan food. Not a big fan of “vegan” food, but this seems like “normal” food and yet it is vegetarian and vegan. We have eaten here several times and never had a meal that wasn’t great. We sat in the outdoor patio and had a chance to watch the “locals” pass by. We will return.
