Respond to Review of Cafe Gratitude - Los Angeles
by Sonja and Dirk
Review: We checked out Cafe Gratitude for a late lunch on Saturday and it was still pretty busy, but we had no problem getting seated. They have indoor seating as well as an outdoor patio where we sat. Overall, the decor is clean, modern and sleek. They have a small parking lot, but it was full, so we just parked on the street. They also have a sit down diner counter inside as well as a little store area. I saw honey for sale in the store, but the menu and the waitress both noted that the food is vegan. AS for the food, each table already has a water bottle on it when you arrive. The menu is separated between starters, raw and cooked items. We started with the "I Am Grounded" which is roasted potatoes with a spicy nacho cashew cheese. The potatoes were perfectly roasted and the sauce was very creamy, but definitely on the spicy side. We also shared a "I Am Eternally Blessed" shake which is a espresso milkshake and it was extremely yummy! For entrees, we had the "I Am Fortified" (roasted veggie bowl with kale and quinoa) and the "I Am Extraordinary" (a BLT panini). The bowl was very flavorful and the BLT was very unique with sauteed maple coconut. We ended the meal with the raw tiramisu which was very good as well. All the food was tasty and healthy. We left filling full, but energized. We highly recommend checking out this latest addition to the LA vegan scene.
