“This is fun”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2010

If you like healthy food, a positive lifestyle and spiritual people - this is the right place to be and having fun. Especially ordering and getting the dishes is fun. Hint: take a seat close to the bar and hear them shout "Satia you are charasmatic" as soon as the "carrot, ginger, lemon"-juice is ready to be served by Satia...) (We were choosing our food in the way we wanted the Satia to be adressed... ;-)

“Organically Organic”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2010

I am not a true vegan or even a true vegetarian - though these are my comfort zones when it comes to food. I love the concept of Cafe Gratitude - take care of yourself, take care of the planet. Be good to you.

The food is delicious, well thought out and presented. Some of the food is even still ALIVE! All the menu items are also named after desirable traits - Such as "I am Loving" - I can't remember the list, but it is a fun concept. I had an enchilada dish and my date a lasagne offering. Both were good (mine better than his).

The server was friendly and the atmosphere lively. The seating is communal - I had no issue with this - the others at our table were all beautiful people.

Please go and experience this unique dining experience for yourself!

“I am grateful!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 22, 2010

I had lunch at Cafe Gratitude in the Mission District. I took the BART from the Embarcado which was easy to navigate. It is a brief walk from the stop to the cafe. The restaurant decore and personnel is a flashback to the 70's, but in a cozy way. The food is incredible. I had the best lemonade and tamales ever. The chips and sauces were amazing. The food is pricey but is definately worth it.

“Not cheap,and service isn't but the food triumphs!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 14, 2009

Really wonderful healthy food. Delicious food and much of it labor intensive, and all organic so it is well worth the few bucks extra you pay.
The service was lame but friendly. Couple across the table was also laughing at the incompetence./. but the food, the food was WONDERFUL.
Moving to a location directly on Mission, so an easier spot to get to. Looking forward to another meal.....
