The food at cafe gratidtude was fantastic perfect portion sizes, fresh organic produce. Fantastic to see raw cuisine getting so creative my dining partners didn't even realise the food was raw until I mentioned it after our meal. Great variety of options to suite all tastes. Cannot wait to return!

I was initially put off by the exterior of this place but inside is a great decor place and the food is fabulous. The daily soup was great and the flax crackers were my favourite. During my stay in santa monica I went several times.

This is a serious vegan restaurant - seriously pretentious, but also seriously good. We stumbled in with a range of moods and meals, and had a blast. The food is awesome, and the atmosphere classic venice.

I am by no means a vegan, vegetarian or in need of balancing my aura, however, this hippy joint serves good food. Even the meat eaters can find something tasty on the menu and enjoy it. If anything it will be dishes you've probably never even tried. Let it open your mind and taste buds to something different. This is... More

Within in moments of greeting our table, our server informed us of the following: "I really like working here because every day I am surrounded by so much consciousness." That said, one could cope with the cultish nature of Cafe Gratitude if something special could be said about the food. But there are so many other places that do vegan,... More

I don't like sounding ungrateful, but Cafe Gratitude was a disappointment. I had checked out the menu prior to the visit and was looking forward to any of several of the flavor combinations described. In my lunch choice, flavor was simply missing. The "Awesome" selection, an eggplant sandwich was bland, and its accompanying salad was essentially a pile of jumbo... More

We came here for brunch and it took almost 30 minutes to get our coffee and juice. The food was delicious however service definitely needs improvement.

I love meat, but we met some friends here for lunch while on vacation. I was a little hesitant, but very pleasantly surprised with my meal. I ordered "I am humble" and I liked it so much, we came back later in the week, so I could have it again.
