Ate here twice on our short visit to Santa Monica. Staff, decor and most importantly the food was all amazing! I would eat here every day if I was a local. Great friendly atmosphere and excellent meals. Highly recommend.

Really nice food. Quick great service. Food tastes wonderful. Try the spritzer or the other juices to go with your meal.

I assure you that this place is the most genuine and stylish vegan place in LA. I've been to the Latchmont branch of this cafe, but I prefer the outside seating of Venice branch. Very cozy and comfortable outside seats make the foods taste even better. All items are really tasty and great for our health, service is heedful and... More

I absolutely LOVE Cafe Gratitude! The atmosphere alone is beautiful, but the food is even better, Cafe Gratitude has a wide selection of gluten free and plant-based items. Visiting this restaurant is definite must if you are vegan, vegetarian, or gluten-free.

I was invited to a party one evening and the hosts did not have much that was vegan-friendly on the menu, so I brought my own wrap (with the host's permission). The host actually suggested Cafe Gratitude. I arrived before lunch and got my order to go. Service was great. Friendly. Attentive. I was offered water. I used the restroom.... More

I've been here a few times with people who think it's good, or even great, but it's not for me. The food was bland and served cold (I thought it was supposed to be cold until I dug down deep enough to find some hot food beneath the surface.) The "Question of the Day" can be annoying or depressing, not... More

I took my two young adult kids, who were actually looking forward to a burger. We left felling very full and we were surprised at how tasty everything was. We had the Grateful and Humble bowls, the Magical Sandwich, sipped on the "restored: adrenal tonic and shared "Comforted" roasted yams. The menu item names, instantly put us in a better... More

Staying in Venice

Neighborhood Profile
Venice has always danced to its own beat as the epicenter of bohemian culture in Los Angeles. Along the boardwalk there are street performers and local craftsmen selling their wares. Original paintings, souvenirs, and jewelry are on display. Crowds of visitors marvel at the sites while weightlifting enthusiasts pump iron in plain view, and skateboarders do their tricks around the skate park. All of it happens under the warm California sun with sprawling views of sand and sea. Heading east, the main drags of Abbot Kinney Boulevard and Main Street are lined with boutique shops, some major retail stores, art galleries and restaurants. Here the ambiance is more relaxed and upscale than the frenetic boardwalk area. Venice is a mostly walkable (and certainly bikeable) neighborhood, full of areas to explore.
