This month’s featured restaurant is one of the consistently happiest restaurants we’ve found: Laughing Planet Café! These quick-service restaurants are filled with eclectic art, dinosaur toys and happy employees, not to mention awesome food, creating a very tasty and comfortable environment.
A wonderful thing about Laughing Planet Café is their focus on sustainability. Laughing Planet uses local ingredients (hey, Tillamook does too!) in their burritos, salads, quesadillas, and smoothies. They also use tons of biodegradable or compostable products so you can eat guilt-free. Hooray! Even better, Laughing Planet reaches out to help a different group of beings: chimpanzees! Laughing Planet Café supports the IDA Africa’s Sanaga-Yong Chimpanzee Rescue Center, to ensure that endangered chimpanzees survive in their natural habitats. How great is that?!
Pop into a Laughing Planet in Portland, Eugene or Corvallis today to eat a burrito and play with a dinosaur. All locations are open 11am to 9pm or 10pm.
