Organic Mexican food restaurant by the owners of Cafe Gratitude. Most of the produce used is grown on the owners' own local farm. Food is made-in-house in its open kitchen -- including the salsas, tamales, and corn tortillas. Concise seasonal menus. Prices moderate for the area but on the expensive end for a veg restaurant. Open Mon-Sun 11:00am-11:00pm.

Amazing food but understaffed - Edit

The atmosphere was so cool and the food was amazing. We got the cauliflower with nacho cheese on it. The waiter said it was one of their most popular dishes and I thought it sounded so weird but it was really good. Then I got the sweet potato flautas which were amazing, the guac was especially good. The service was an issue though. It took us a really long time to flag down the waiter to order, and again to get the check. They were obviously understaffed because they were keeping some tables empty even though there was a wait to be seated.

Wonderful! - Edit

Fantastic vegan menu. Cheese plate was excellent, Jackfruit tacos and the chorizo chimichanga were full of flavour and so delicious. Dessert menu was phenomenal - we had the apple fig cobbler, which was heavenly.
Super busy and great atmosphere with excellent service.

This place makes me want to book another flight to LA - Edit

The jackfruit tacos and cauliflower dish blew my mind. The tacos were the best I’ve ever had. The jackfruit was cooked so perfectly that I didn’t want my meal to end. Please open another location in Chicago.

Cons: always busy

Just Came for the Insta Pic - Edit

I would say that we paid more for the setting and overall ambience than for the food. Expect to wait quite a while for a table and for rushed service, which is understandable... I'd say it's a place to come once to check out but definitely not more. There are better food options in other parts of Hollywood! But I will say that their menu really kicks butt in veganizing Mexican favorites, and their cashew-based creams were very good!

Pros: Good Portion sizes

Cons: Mediocre Service

Absolutely heavenly, magical ambiance & food - Edit

Possibly the most beautiful outdoor Mexican patio restaurant I’ve ever been to! The food is incredible too! It’s not cheap, but definitely reasonable and more affordable than I’d expected. Seriously just one of the loveliest meals I’ve had! We went for brunch, wish I could’ve gone back for lunch and dinner...never enough time.

Clean deliciousness - Edit

Great service, amazing young coconut ceviche, groovy salsas, bright and yummy enchiladas verde and a good drink menu (even though I stuck with a simple IPA). Is it the greasy sloppy street cart Mexican food I prefer usually? No. It doesn't have to be though! It's clean, filling, bright and tasty. Check it out but be warned, make a reservation. This place gets jammed!

best Mexican vegan food ever ! - Edit

The atmosphere is amazing but the food is even better. The nachos with the cashew queso is to die for. The chimichanga was on the brunch menu, and was so incredible. I want to come back over and over and try the rest of the menu, because I was stalking the other tables and their food looked amazing too. MUST GO !!

Cons: none

Beautiful meal in every way! - Edit

I lunched here on July 9, during a brief visit to the LA area. I'm vegan and my lunch buddies were two old friends who are both omnivores - we all loved every dish! The beautiful outdoor seating made the lunch feel like the special occasion it was. Staff were all super friendly and accommodating as well.

Pros: excellent food, beautiful outdoor seating, excellent service
