The name says it all. It is "the" stand" nothing fancy nothing stylish just friendly fresh delicious vegetarian food. There are some outdoor tables if you want to eat "in" or do what a lot of the locals do and stop on the way to the beach to pick up a nibble. Lots of juice places popping in to Laguna... More

This is a small stand - corner of a building - that serves all vegan food. Menu is quite extensive despite the place being tiny. Some raw options. A number of Mexican dishes like burritos and tostadas. Salads, sandwiches, juices. I got a burrito and it was very good, though could have used more beans. My husband ordered the vegi... More

Keep in mind this is a lunch spot and that they offer vegetarian dishes and you'll be thrilled. I personally like their avocado sandwich with sprouts. My wife who is vegetarian loves it all.

Charming and friendly little eatery serving vegetarian and vegan dishes, juices shakes and smoothies. Well worth the wait , as everything is made to order, but there are neat old school board games and eclectic books to peruse. Then grab your grub and walk across to one of the most beautiful sunsets imaginable. I ordered the veggie miso soup and... More

We wanted a simple healthy dinner and a romantic walk on the beach. First, we ordered the Taco Bowl, Bean/Rice Tostada and drinks to go, and then walked across PCH to watch the sunset on the beach. A great evening with very little fuss. All items on the menu are healthy for you. If you have any diet restrictions they... More

The basic food genre at the Stand is of the healthy living and natural foods variety with almost every kind of vegetarian and fruit combination available in some interesting form or another. Seating is limited outside and there is... More

We were in town for a bike trip and were finding our way around by urban spoon & Tripadvisor. We found The Stand while searching for green juice and vegan food. Great spot - juice was spot on. Great hummus burrito. Loved that this was next to the bike shop. Really cool spot with good food.

If you are vegan or even vegetarian you'll love this place! Everything on the menu is vegan and the menu is large, so there are many choices. They even offer many gluten free dishes. The potato and guacamole burrito was very good and despite the name it isn't filled with just potatoes, but is stuffed with their vegetable mix that... More
