Laughing Planet Review
Laughing Planet provides customers with a fun and quirky ambience with their brightly-colored and well-decorated interior full of toys and wall decorations.
It is also featured in “100 Best Green Businesses” by the Portland’s Business Journal because of their self-proclaimed mission to provide people with healthy, organic and locally-grown ingredients.
They offer free WiFi connection to their customers which makes them even more convenient for customers who are looking to hold business meetings over a cup of coffee.
However, the only drawback about Laughing Planet is that they are quite pricy compared to other restaurants offering similar food items. But for quality food guaranteed, customers are willing to pay higher prices.
They serve nutritious, affordable, and delicious dishes made from local ingredients and tons of fresh veggies. Their menu also includes different types of soups, salads, sandwiches and smoothies. Their smoothies are a famous option among customers which comprise of fruit juices, soy milks or yogurts.
Laughing Planet is recommended for customers looking to eat healthy by providing them with dishes made from natural ingredients without causing damage to the environment at the same time.
They also offer 100% pasture raised beef which is much healthier and better for the environment, as well as the animals. Options in their menu include weekly and seasonal specials, vegan, gluten-free, and paleo friendly dishes. They serve a variety of flavors also from Mexican to Asian bowls.
Will I go back again?
Yes, although prices can be quite high when compared to other restaurants in terms of price per dish, they offer nutritious and delicious options. I feel confident that this will be a restaurant I love enough to make it a bi-weekly, if not monthly destination. The menu offers all sorts of foods to please everyone. The great thing about Laughing Planet is that they have an atmosphere that welcomes people from all walks of life to relax for awhile and just enjoy good food. For these reasons, I would most definitely come back again!
