Our Menus

The Laughing Seed invites you to experience our summer menu. We are excited about several seasonal entrees that are light and flavorful – perfect for the warmer months. We continue to broaden our culinary scope to include even more of our favorite flavors from around the world and to utilize the seasonal organic vegetables coming to us from various regional growers. We are pleased to feature other fantastic local products as well, including cheeses from Three Graces Dairy, bread from Annie’s Bakery and Eat More Bakery, tempeh from Smiling Hara, mustard from Lusty Monk, kombucha by Buchi, and a variety of ales from Green Man, to name just a few. Of course, many of our finest menu items are housemade. We’re now even baking our burger buns, focaccia, pita, and specialty breads in house.

Global fusion is very much alive at the Laughing Seed. Dine with us, and you can experience the fresh, complex tastes of Thailand, as well as the simple, but intensely satisfying, flavors of the Mediterranean and Caribbean. Sunflower seed pesto and cashew nut ricotta form a deliciously satisfying filling for our raw Spinach Pesto Manicotti. Our sushi offering changes nightly, as do our pasta specials and authentic Indian thali plates. And nothing comforts like our classic Harmony Bowl, Tempeh Reuben, or Tico Burrito. In addition to preserving our guest favorites, we’ve added several new dishes to our summer menu. Our Blackened Portobello, Eggplant Parmesan, Pasta Primavera, and Beer-Battered Avocado Tacos are sure to quickly become your new craving items.

Our new dessert menu is light, but decadently delicious, featuring several gluten free and vegan options created by pastry chefs, Jericho and Kelley. Don’t miss our raw, vegan, gluten-free cheesecake and Mint Chocolate Macaroons. With ice cream and sorbet from The Hop, there is bound to be something on the menu to satisfy your summer sweet tooth!

With a menu that includes vegan, raw, and gluten-free options, all healthful, freshly prepared, and delicious, there is truly something for everyone at Laughing Seed! We invite you to come and taste our revolutionary vegetarian cuisine, which has been crafted with the utmost care and respect for the culinary traditions that inspire us. We hope you will celebrate the area’s bounty with us and share your thoughts on the latest blossom of the Seed…

See you soon,

Joan and Joe Eckert, and the staff of the Laughing Seed
