The Stand
This classic outdoor restaurant serves the freshest vegan meals in Laguna Beach!

The Stand Laguna Beach Restaurant is a magnet for vegetarian and vegan locals who prefer the freshest natural products in their meals! Every single plate of food that is served looks like it just came from the garden- fresh, colorful, and absolutely no processing! This restaurant may be small, but the menu is huge!!! From smoothies and shakes to salads, sandwiches, pitas and wraps- the list goes on and on.

During a recent visit to this restaurant, the staff was cheerfully rocking-out to the tunes of Jimmy Hendrix- entertaining the patrons and each other by seeing who could sing the lyrics the loudest!

The Stand Laguna Beach Restaurant, Laguna Beach, California
(I loved the Hummus & Guacamole Pita!)
I ordered the Hummus & Guacamole Pita and a Tropical Smoothie. The Hummus & Guacamole were incredibly fresh, packed into a soft pita loaded with alfalfa sprouts, tomatoes, cucumber, carrots, beets, jicama, and dressing! I didn’t know that you could pack that much of a garden into a pita- but apparently the staff of The Stand has found a way!

The Tropical Smoothie was also amazing- blended with fresh papaya, pineapple, coconut, banana, & orange-juice! The only way that you’re going to get products any more fresh and natural than this… is if you start growing them yourself!

All of the seating at The Stand Laguna Beach is outside- so plan on enjoying your meal in the beautiful sunshine and light breezes of Laguna Beach. There are canopies to shade from the direct sunlight & the building provides some shelter from the breeze!

If you prefer to take your meal to the beach- a short walk down Thalia St will take you directly down the steps to Thalia Street Beach. There are also some nice wooden benches with beautiful views of the ocean at the top of steps! This is a perfect spot to enjoy your lunch and watch the local skimboarders and surfers entertain you as they ride the waves!!!

Smoothies & Shakes $4.75
Meals range from $5 - $10, with most around $7
