Cafe Gratitude - Venice
Give thanks...Please use Opentable when booking here. The place was packed when our party of four visited but our table was ready and we were promptly seated.
I've only ever eaten here for lunch but I have to say, they have an uncanny ability of making a non-meat meal taste like meat. I say this because I had a meat-loving curmudgeon with me who absolutely loved his veggie burger.
They have a veggie substitute for everything which I have to say is all delicious.
By the way...service is great.5/7/2013 12:00:00 AMWe were first time dinersWe were first time diners looking for a spot that the entire family could enjoy. With our 50/50 split on meat vs vegan this isn't always easy. No one was disappointed and there was a unanimous vote (out of 12) to return! I feel a victorious win as well as a happy tummy.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMOur uncle was in from outOur uncle was in from out of state and we took him here for dinner. It was our first time coming to this restaurant. It was great! We had a really good time, all three of us really liked the food and said so, the smoothies were awesome, service was attentive, very friendly, enjoyed the ambiance. Great night out, we will definitely be back.4/22/2013 12:00:00 AMIf You Want to GlowI've been a longtime fan of Gratitude on Larchmont. As is often the case, there is a slight decline in tastiness whenever there's a branch out, but Gratitude Venice stays the course pretty well. The service is stellar. Friend ordered a cappuccino, a waiter walked by and asked her if she wanted more foam. He took it and returned with the frothiest almond milk coffee drink ever made.
They're no longer making the fake BLT I Am Incredible I think it was called, but an astute waitress figured out how to make it by using the bacon-flavored coconut chips from another sandwich. Delish!
Got the I am divine beet/ginger juice. The name fits. Try it.4/12/2013 12:00:00 AMI love Café Gratitude andI love Café Gratitude and the quality of the dishes is exceptional, especially the raw enchiladas, raw kelp noodles, I am Whole bowl, and the new Hawaiian pizza.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMSuper delicious vegan foodSuper delicious vegan food - probably the best in Los Angeles!3/28/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazing....Amazing restaurant with amazing food.
