I've been a vegetarian for over thirty years and perhaps my hopes were too high but I was very disappointed with this mediocre but healthy food. My husband and I ordered the raw soup which was so full of cayenne pepper he sent it back as inedible. Our main courses were decent but he spicing was also off. Our waitress... More

Liked the menu concept of labeling the dishes with positive affirming titles. For Vegans probably a good restaurant. For the Omnivore's among us, not so good. Ordered the "BLT". Had the L & T alright, but the fake B was definitely lacking. I was expecting the look and taste of bacon, but got a mishmash of toasted coconut and maple.... More

Food was terrible! $75 FOR 3. I was given a bowl of mystery food & they also used to allow customers to donate $$$ & when a homeless person came in they could eat for free. they stopped the giving bowl.

The food here is GREAT. And try the incredible juices. They actually serve wine here too! Nothing to dislike.

Wonderful combinations for food, vegan, delightful smoothies all with zen like and fun names. I'd visit again and again if I was in the area.

Went after being recommended by someone who lives locally. Slightly skeptical at first. When ordered didn't think it would be great. After the first mouthful all of that changed. Fresh and vibrant. So tasty and struggled to finish as the food was wholesome and filling. Not badly priced either. The jasmine tea was really good. Go with an appetite if... More

Absolutely delicious raw, vegan food, and I am not even a vegan! Their wine choices were slim, and very good. I even got an entire meal to go, as I did not think I'd be able to kind food that yummy without really searching around ( which I did not have time to do.) It is a cozy place, the... More

I ate here with my huge family (10 people) around 4pm so we were able to get seated right away. but it is a small place so that would have to be considered if you are going at a peak time. I am a picky vegetarian and try to avoid dairy, soy, and gluten as well and this place was... More

Nothing's better than a cool drink or dessert after a day at the beach and my California kids knew exactly where to head after our sojourn on the beach in Santa Cruz. They took me to the Gratitude Cafe-- an interesting spot on the main drag. My son ordered a smoothie with all kinds of healthful ingredients that he thoroughly... More
