Grown from Atlanta, Georgia, Happy Seed is a plant-based pop-up restaurant specializing in traditional Latin cuisine made with plants only.

We are a passion-fueled team striving to redefine the way people think about food. And we believe in a more sustainable future in which individuals thrive and contribute back to the planet, starting by leaving animals off the plate.

Latin food has played an everlasting role in our lives. From childhood memories, family meals, and traveling the side streets of Latin America, it is embedded in our experiences. We are inspired by its colorful history; its simplicity, yet depth in flavor; its deep rooted love and intention.


Our intention is to recreate these flavors while challenging the norm - showcasing not only the diversity and healing power of plants, but also their potential for forward-thinking fare. All this, while staying true to our Southern roots of down-home comfort food that's made from the soul.

Above all, we hold health and vitality first and foremost, which is why we craft all of our meat and cheese substitutes from scratch without harmful additives, use fresh, high-quality ingredients, and always opt for organic when possible.


We hope you enjoy our food as much as we enjoy creating it for you!


approximately 133 gallons of water are saved with every meatless meal.*

by the year 2050, 8.1 million lives could be saved per year if everyone switched to a plant-based diet.*

1-2 acres of rainforest are cleared every second of the day for grazing livestock or growing animal feed.*

If the world switched to a plant-based diet, it could save 8 million human lives by 2050, reduce greenhouse gas emissions by two thirds and lead to healthcare-related savings and avoided climate damages of $1.5 trillion.
