Our Story

At LANEY & LU, we believe food can serve a far greater purpose than to simply fill our stomachs. The ‘right’ food nourishes our souls, builds community, and connects us with the earth. We work with over two dozen farmers and merchants throughout New England to source our products and ingredients locally whenever possible with an eye toward positively impacting local ecosystems. We utilize compostable to-go packaging with a commitment to being ‘zero waste’ to the customer. We believe LANEY & LU can make a meaningful and sustainable difference in our community and the world.

Our menu includes small-batch, locally-roasted organic fair trade coffee, herbalist-designed organic teas, thoughtfully-crafted transformational beverages, sublime smoothies and smoothie bowls, hearty rice and quinoa bowls, bright and happy salads, wraps and sandwiches, and, finally, good snacks on-the-go.

LANEY & LU breaks through the perceptions and boundaries of traditional vegetarian restaurants and juice/smoothie bars. Approachability and inclusiveness are important distinctions. We don’t believe healthy food should be limiting, exclusive, or snobby. It is LANEY & LU’s vision to serve the healthiest, fast fine food that is nutrient-dense, clean, and transformative.

Our Mission

Eat Consciously. Live Vibrantly.

We create real food and drink that nourishes your body, feeds the soul, and inspires community.


We believe there are “5 Moments of Truth” for our guests. Every instance a customer interacts with our brand online, enters the restaurant, interacts with a team member, experiences the food, and reflects on their overall experience is a critical make-or-break moment for guest satisfaction. If any or all these moments are negative, customer trust may be eroded and we may jeopardize brand loyalty in the future. The unique way that the LANEY & LU team takes orders at the counter, handles online orders, and delivers food to each guest makes its service model an entire experience. While other restaurants in the fine, fast casual industry may see each guest interaction as a simple transaction, we see each interaction as an opportunity to improve someone’s day and live into our mission.


At LANEY & LU, we believe in 100% transparency, because you deserve to know exactly what you are eating.
By using cover crops and other ecological farming practices, these farmers build up soil and the plants’ own biological systems. When you eat at LANEY & LU, you participate in this important movement, which aims to grow better food and preserve the Earth.
