I was skeptical when we first visited, but the food at Cafe Gratitude is absolutely delicious, whether you are a vegan, a paleo, or anything in between. In multiple visits, I've never failed to polish off my food, which is always plentiful, creative, and delectable. Service is occasionally a bit lackadaisical, but the vibe is relaxed and unhurried, so best... More

We wanted dessert and to try this place. We split a piece of carrot cake a la mode. The cake sounded like it would be awesome but was so dry it needed the icecream. Also thought we were getting a piece that was in the glass case but it looked like they cut that in 1/2 so it was VERY... More

Friendly helpful wait staff, nice atmosphere, great food! It's rare to run into a really good organic wine but I found it here - just wish I had jotted down the name. I appreciate that the menu choices were interesting as well as healthy. There were four of us for dinner, each trying a different menu item - not one... More

Great food even if you are not a vegan or vegetarian. My daughter is a vegetarian and it is always nice to go to a restaurant where you do not have to look for possible dinners. The City of Berkeley has a lot of great vegetarian/vegan restaurants. This is one of the best. Staff was wonderful. Everything our waiter suggested... More

Five of us were looking for a vegetarian restaurant on a day trip to Berkeley, and this one was recommended by an acquaintance. We were a little unsure about trying an all-raw-food restaurant, but it turns out that they offer plenty of cooked food too. We started off with a great butternut squash soup and a bottle of wine, but... More

Though I would've loved to have written this place off as a pretentious spot, the food is wonderful. The food is pretty expensive, but hearty. The black bean burger is awesome, and the "BLT" is incredible.

I am not vegan or raw, but because I don't eat gluten, corn or refined sugar and I like veggies, I end up at places like this when I can find them. This place has some items that are cooked, which surprised me. The black bean burger was one of them and it wasn't especially good. The raw nachos are... More

Love cafe gratitude. Love the food, attitude and price. Heath food can sometimes be really over priced and pretentious but this was home cooked, fresh and super tasty. Wish there was one in London

We had a really nice time here! We were surprised there as a wait at 2:00 pm for lunch, but it's clearly a popular place! We had a smoothie to start (I am sweet)-- strawberry flavored. It was great, and really wonderful on a hot day. Then, for food, we had the I am warm-hearted mushroom dish and the I... More
