Food is great and the menu has good options for grass eaters. The juices and smoothies are to die for.

The service isn't great at all. I went there on a Saturday evening and it took long for the server to serve, get the check and check us out. It felt like an eternity.

Pros: Veggie options on the menu

We went to the roseville location for lunch on a Tuesday afternoon around 4pm. The food was really good. I had the good earth burger with french dressing and was very satisfied. unfortunately the service was terrible. our server was not friendly and came off like she was too good for us. she never even smiled once at us. then when she came back to take our order said that it looked like we were too indecisive so she would come back later. she came back for our order then we waited 30 min for our food. once received she didn't ask if there was anything else we needed and didn't return for another 20 min. she never asked us how our food tasted or anything. i had to flag her down just to get a soda. after we got our bill and paid she never said thank you or anything just dropped off the credit card receipts and left. then we went to the bakery counter and waited 10 min for someone to come and no one ever did. we even yelled back into the kitchen for someone to help us and still no one came. so we left. that was my first time dining there and it will be my last.

What is the worth of a wholesome meal, when the service creates so much anxiety? I've eaten tasty, colorful meals in this restaurant for years, but the last two visits were met with such poor service that I will hestitate before going again. The servers were much more interested in interacting w/ each other than w/ the patrons. On both of my last two visits I had to flag someone down to take my order -- this after sitting at the table for 20 and 15 minutes respectively (I was hungrier on the second time, so less patient). Nourishment is more than what is on the plate.

Pros: Healthy, delicious food.

Cons: Servers inattentive at best.

Are you people on meth? Why would anyone whine about getting free bread and hummus?
This restaurant is a true gem. I'm there twice a week like clockwork. the BEST peanut butter blondies EVER!
Reasonably priced wholesome food is NOT easy to find, and this place always delivers. I don't think I have ever had a bad meal at the Good Earth. Not sure what the problem is with some of these complainers. They have a really great selection of fish and vegetarian items (now that the TC is sorely lacking in veggie restaurants, this is a must-go for any veg or vegan)
If you are veg, you can't miss with the the enchiladas, the planet burger (homemade, not a frozen gardenburger wannabe) the cold veggie sandwich, the tostadas and the challa french toast.
The risotto is UNREAL, and the huevos rancheros always deliver.
True, there seems to be a pretty high turnover here for servers, although I do see people who have been working here for a long time. The high turnover in servers does not affect the food in ANY way!
Do yourself a favor and check it out!
There's a reason that you might have to wait an hour for a seat - because it's GOOD FOOD!

The last time that I went to the Good Earth in Edina, we were not even given the opportunity to eat. You see, we were refugees from the ridiculously popular Original Pancake House and despite the fact that the Good Earth still reliably serves Eighties style bland health food we felt there might be a strong chance of getting a table and most importantly our two year old toddler some breakfast. My son had recently been diagnosed with a severe peanut allergy so as a precaution I asked the hostess if they used peanut oil. The hostess nervously stammered that she was not sure that they didn't and that she needed to go get her manager. She quickly exited into the back room and returned with a frosty blonde Edina lady who assured us that we would have to go elsewhere as they have peanuts in the kitchen. I attempted to communicate the fact that my son's allergy is such that as long as he does not ingest peanuts or anything related to peanuts, he would indeed be fine. She became even more adamant that she could not and would not guarantee the absence of peanuts in my son's food. Unbelievable. Now the petty part of me wants to tell you that I know for a fact those bread baskets are sometimes made up of other people's uneaten bread. I also want to tell you that the Good Earth's kitchen is filled with not so good Earth like materials. But that would be petty. I will close by stating that I will never patronize this mediocre relic of a time when vegetarians only ate tasteless food (see mudpie).

Pros: You can get a table on a sunday

Cons: Allergy sufferers and fresh bread lovers beware!

My mother in law has been boasting about this place for years. She's a huge fan because this restaurant is healthy for you and the food is organic. We went on Saturday night with no reservations. I'm glad I wasn't too hungry because the wait was about 35 minutes. My initial reaction to the place was that I thought it was extremely below par for being in the Galleria-but then again, most of the
"shops"in the Galleria don't blend together very well (but thats a whole other review). For starters, we got a bread basket served w/hummus, edamame and artichoke dip and for our entrees, my mother in law had brown rice w/szechuan chicken and I had the Chiang Mai noodles w/spicy coconut curry. The starters were really good and fullfilling for such small portions. By the time our entrees were served, we were too full to finish our food which wasn't such a bad thing because my dish was curry OVERLOAD. My mother in law's dish wasn't too bad but I wasn't a fan of the brown rice. All in all, the food was okay. I probably wouldn't eat there again unless I wanted to hang out at Denny/Perkins or was desperate to start eating healthier.

Since we moved here in January we have at least gone to this wonderful restaurant at least 3 times a month. The food is fantastic and the tea is the best.
I would like to know what is the deal with the service though? We've never seen the same servers here they always seem to be new. As a result we sometimes get great service here, where as other times its as if we're invisible. Sometimes we get the bread basket and hummus, and other times we go without. We don't expect to be waited on hand and foot, but some consistency would be nice. Otherwise the food here is the best.

Good Earth is one of my favorite lunch restaurants. The food is wonderful and even good for you. The cashew chicken salad is the best! You often do have to wait a bit to be served but it's just a sign of the popularity. It's always worth the wait.

I waited 15 minutes for an awful seat next to the kitchen. I placed my order, after physically GRABBING the waitress, then waited 15 minutes, served the wrong thing, waited 15 more minutes, served ANOTHER wrong dish, finally got what I ordered. The heirloom tomatoes were out of this world, but I was so pissed off by the service and the attitude that I swore never to eat here again. While the food is good, you can cook it all for yourself at home and enjoy the ambiance and the silence there.

Pros: healthy, tasty, in the mall

Cons: awful service, terrible decor, long waits

A great restaurant to go to if you are a vegetarian and have meat-eating friends. They'll be able to order something exotic and for once you won't be stuck with ordering fries and a salad.

PROS: Yum, yum, yum!
CONS: Pricier than Perkins

This is the hippie eatery of choice, but it's good for us regular folks, too. It's organic, but not to the point of being boiled grass in a flower pot. Most dishes taste satisfactory, while also being pretty healthy. The turkey meatloaf is excellent, and the selection of non-alcoholic, non-carbonated drinks are second to none. I wouldn't come here every week, but it's a good change of pace every month or so.

Cons: , A hair overpriced

This is one of my favorite places to eat. I love the atmosphere and the food is excellent. For those who think the food is bland, try the coconut curried chicked. If you still think the foor has no flavor see a doctor and make sure your tastebuds work. I love the "Whole Lemonade" as well. I highly recomend the Good Earth!

Imagine a restaurant with the decor of Perkins and a menu loaded with lots of vegan/veggie stuff. It certainly lacks the ambience of the Seward Cafe, but then again, this Good Earth is in the Galleria. Lots of tasty dishes (I highly recommend the buckwheat pancakes).

Wonderful vegetable soup, and cashew-chicken salad sandwiches on heavy-grain bread. Fun takeout bakery for muffins and tea.

I'm not one to put on airs, so I wasn't suprised when I noticed out all the raised noses in Good Earth were not smelling the food. Both staff and patrons seem to believe they're doing each other favors just by being there. (This IS E.D.I.N.A. - Every Day I Need Affirmation - after all.) The food is bland at best. I've never paid for such a boring omlette. The tables are skinny and crammed together. Heaven forbid you or those at the table next to you need to visit the restroom. There seems to be an obligatory wait every time we visit, even if there are a plethora of available tables. My mother-in-law loves the Galleria, so I'm probably destined to visit Good Earth again. (Sigh.)
