Great options for eating organic

GREAT options on menu and they accommodate many allergies, restrictions etc. Service was great and since it was our fist visit, the throughly explained the menu and the additional options. Definitely worth a revisit once in LA again.

Wow. Try everything and share! My first time at this location. We had macro bowls, kelp noodles, pizza, soup, and omg.... The brownie dessert cannot be missed! Healthy - organic - delicious!

Wow, our breakfast experience at Cafe Gratitude was excellent! Great service, nice patio and most importantly, excellent food. The Golden (Tumeric Latte) drink is a must, as is the Grace Smoothie. The highlight was the BONITA, breakfast taco plate with quinoa, black beans, salsa fresca, avocado, cashew nacho cheese, toasted pumpkin seeds, and four corn tortillas. I added the housemade...

Vegan is not only good for you, but it's good for the taste buds here -- because of the variety of ingredients and the innovative combinations. After a third visit, I feel comfortable about highly recommending. Many entrees are served in bowls, and I especially like "Whole" which features braised butternut squash, adzuki beans, sea vegetables, housemade kim chee (don't... More

When we lived on the central coast of California, we often visited the Cafe Gratitudes in Healdsburg and San Francisco. We loved them… The food was excellent, the service delightful… Everything was organic and there was a highly uplifting feel to the restaurants… Unfortunately, all the northern California Cafe Gratitudes closed due to an impending lawsuit which among other complaints...

I am a recent vegan and have dreaded going out to eat with friends. This place is amazing and London needs one!! The cashew cheese alternatives are simply delicious and it isn't just salad on the menu. There are alternatives for everything so get yourself down there at least to marvel at the genius of the combinations. I was so... More

As soon as we entered, we could smell the freshness in the air! Everything: our teas, sandwiches and desserts were simply delicious. The names of the dishes in their menu are also given quite a bit of thought. Very interesting in every way!!!

I discovered this nice lil spot today. Excellent service and tasty food. Cappuccino was perfect at one of their outdoor tables. Cafe Gratitude's menu is cleverly named, it's food is tasty and reasonably priced. Only steps from the Thai consulate on Larchmont, just off of Melrose. It's also very close to Paramount studios melrose gate.

Cafe Gratitude proves that organic and vegetarian doesn't have to be bland and boring. The names of dishes reflect the upbeat attitude of this wonderful restaurant -- "Dazzling," "Gracious," "Pure" which are salads. "Whole" the macrobiotic salad bowl is delicious and hearty. My only complaint is the noise level -- it's often crowded, and often very noisy.
