One day I was looking for what vegan restaurant I would order dinner from that day and I came across the menu. It listed goat cheese so automatically I'm like - NOT VEGAN. Then someone recommended I try this vegan restaurant and I'm like - IT'S VEGAN? It's vegan. I got delivery the first time. The grilled cheese was so good it brought tears to my eyes. I actually picked up food after that and the atmosphere of the lab and the patio area made me fall in love. Plus the grilled was still mind blowing and there were vegan poptarts.
This place is a gem. Delicious, original gourmet vegan food for a really decent price, surprisingly cool atmosphere, and the service was out of this world! They bent over backwards to accommodate our strange dietary requests; the chef came out three times to discuss with us. Ten stars, not five :)
We popped in as an audible since a restaurant nearby had an atrocious wait time. I'm so glad we stumbled upon this place. Even if you are a carnivore like me, I think you'll really enjoy the flavors and textures of the veg friendly items here. We ordered the purple taquitos, Mary Moon burger and the butternut squash enchiladas. The portions were bigger than I expected and the flavors were not as blah and bland as I was assuming for veg food. It was actually pretty flavorful and great quality food. The taquitos were my favorite followed by the enchiladas. The burger was good and different, but it just got pretty messy after the first couple bites. I was getting pretty frustrated and resorted to eating it with a fork and knife. I ordered the lemonade and was a huge fan of it. I highly recommend trying that as a drink! They do have a vast beer selection. Didn't get a chance to try them or dessert, but maybe next time! The ambiance is casual and has a hipster vibe to it. The service was friendly. Parking can be a little tough here. There is a parking lot and there is also a valet option for $3. Try your luck with either!
Food tastes great and is inventive. Also pretty filling which is a plus after you've worked up an appetite at the beach.
Cool food in a cool location. The Lab is an innovative space and to go along with it Seabirds has innovative food in a casual atmosphere. I'm not vegan or vegetarian but I don't eat much meat, so I love went I find good, innovative, flavorful veggies on the menu. We ordered 5 things, all of which were delicious. I had the rice bowl with jackfruit and it was FULL of flavor and so much food I had to take some of it home. To top it off, they got wind that it was my birthday and they brought out vegan ice cream and a succulent (which I thought was creative...and fed in to my obsession with succulents).

Large store, brightly lit, diverse selection of fresh, frozen, and dry goods,many organic/natural. Ok bath and beauty aids section. Hot self-serve by the pound "healthy" deli foods; salad bar; cold specialty salads. Juice bar. Restaurant. Negatives: Produce quality is variable. Almost the entire store is over-priced, but there are monthly specials, and it is a niche market. Parking slots are narrow, not always ample enough.
The best Organic and Natural foods and groceries with a cold pressed juice bar, hot food and salad bar to go or eat in.
Awesome pizza and deli section. Shakes are bomb and most of the staff is cool.
The staff is very knowledgeable and can steer you towards the correct herbal product for your condition.
Do the majority of my grocery shopping here, great restaurant in back, many items from deli and juicebar to choose from. Highly recommended with easy parking

Great service! Great decor! Great food! We really liked the standard items and tried some new ones as well. All are great!

I will say the staff is very nice but the food is what makes this place lose 3 stars. I am a food connoisseur and this place was lacking bad. For the price I was surprised of how small the portions were. I think the chicken curries had a few table spoons of meat. The fish curry had 2 small pieces of filleted fish. We spent several hundred here and all left hungry. Come prepared to spend $100 on two people for mediocre food or rather don't come hungry at all.
LOVE. Sweet people. Finally a fine dining Indian here. Freshly made, & each item made very intentionally (soaked overnight, etc.). One of our weekly spots now. SO happy it's here.
The best food in town!! Outstanding dishes. Perfect customer service. Must go if you haven't tried yet.
Wonderful people, incredible food and great ambiance. Highly recommend. We dined there for the first time and will be returning often. Thank you!!!
My daughter and I were looking for a new place to eat and decided to try this place out . It was very good super tasty and great service and the chef came out and made sure that her meal was gluten free. Were definitely coming back

There are some unique dishes here, a lot of it is seafood-flavored based and that's not something I particularly enjoy. The menu doesn't really have any small items, sides, or appetizers . The wraps are amazing and the portions are large. One or two more dessert options would be nice. I think a couple of menu additions would make this place amazing!
Very friendly atmosphere, great food. Fun drinks and great customer service :) The colors and paintings are definitely inspiring, very appealing place. World peace cuisine is awesome!!!!!! Love this place.
I can vouch for the tacos and sandwiches. Everything tasted great. The service was very attentive and courteous. Try the Jackfruit Limeade. Would have took pictures, but all I have now are empty plates.
It's been bookmarked for so long and didn't disappoint. Friendly service and great food. I got the ego less wrap and fries with their vegan thousand island. It was incredibly tasty and the portion was massive, leftover for the win!
This is one of my favorite vegan spots and trust me I've been to many vegan eateries! I have been coming here almost every week for months now and I can literally never get enough of their delicious vegan food! I always order an extremely complicated salad but their staff is always so friendly and accommodating. The "Ultimate Liberation" which is their take on vegan fish tacos was delicious! I would prefer these over regular fish tacos any day! I will definitely be back and I'm telling all my friends and family to come here!
