Delicious vegan food for those
Delicious vegan food for those who are afraid to try! And I love that they offer wine--so many "healthier" restaurants don't.

Have eaten here numerous times
Have eaten here numerous times for lunch and had never booked a dinner group. Am so pleased with the outcome. Everyone enjoyed their meals immensely and the desserts even more so. Feel good food even for non vegans.

Busy but good
Even though I'm a carnivore, I loved the food here! Thankfully, we'd reserved a table because the cafe was really bustling & busy. Over server seemed a bit overwhelmed and we waited quite awhile to order and for our food. My friend who recommended Cafe Gratitude told me that on each of her visits there her server gave their table a topic to discuss (for example "What is love?") We didn't get the topic of the day which would havd been fun. Despite this, I'd still go back. I loved the "What are you grateful for?" inscription on the plates & bowls and was inspired by all the life affirming menu item names.The food was flavorful & filling. As a result of this vegan lunch adventure--my first-- I'm intrigued to try more vegan dining spots.

Interesting concept for a
Interesting concept for a restaurant. I'm not much for the vegan/raw food movement but I'll try it every now and then. Had the "I am Awesome" (eggplant parmesan with nut cheeses) and really enjoyed it. I don't think I would've known they didn't use real cheese if it was listed on the menu. The staff is friendly, the crowd is young and smart and the food is delicious. Not sure how often I'd return just because the food is not my scene, but it's nice to have this place on the roster and I always enjoy a new food experience. Super crowded - reservation recommended.

Overall, Cafe Gratitude was a fun place to eat. I really enjoyed the patio dining, and the food was delicious. I was most impressed later when I needed a copy of the receipt (which I had lost). Brian asked me questions about what I had eaten and was able to locate a copy for me. Very, very kind. I would definitely eat here again (and I don't always seek out raw, vegan, or local...I just like food in general).

Very tasty imaginative vegetarian fare, clean & basic ambiance

Excellent Raw and Vegan Food
If the vegan and raw food craze has caught you, Cafe Gratitude is the place to eat. Great food, reasonable prices and a unique if slightly offbeat menu.

I've been several times and it seems like you can always count on delicious food, great service and pleasant atmosphere.
It's s little loud sometimes but not too bad.

grateful for gratitude
As always, the food, atmosphere and service at Gratitude were tremendous — so comforting to have a safe, clean and FUN place to eat. A great addition to the community.

Cafe Gratitude Larchmont
Amazing food that's so yummy one forgets it's healthy! Service can get a little slow due to the overwhelming crowds at times - can be a trendy scene, but if that's what you're into, then you found it :) Not especially great for business meetings as it can get very loud and the seating is predominantly for two people.

My vegan daughter and vegetarian
My vegan daughter and vegetarian niece were thrilled to be able to eat ANYTHING on the menu. The service was terrific. The ambience was special and attentative but there was still an informal, comfortable feel to it. Very enjoyable experience.

Full of flavor
Consistently excellent. Food is full of flavor and very interesting combinations, beautifully prepared and skillfully served. Allow a little extra time for parking.

Great place to take out of towners
I wanted to take my southern friend and her boyfriend to an authentic LA place. It was her first time in LA and a few of my friends recommended Cafe Gratitude. I had not been but I trusted it would be amazing. It's in a great location, you're getting local food and beer with a healthy conscience in mind. My friends loved it! Our server was a delightful local and we loved chatting with her. All in all, great and delicious experience. Thank you!

One of the best of the best for vegetarian and health conscious dining.

Delicious vegan in Larchmont
I am not a vegetarian or a vegan but took a visiting friend who is vegan here on recommendations of several people. It did not disappoint. We both got a juice (Wonderful and Alive) and I had some kelp noodle dish and my friend had a wrap. We finished everything, it was super delicious. And surprisingly kept me full for a good amount of time. (My previous experience with vegan left me looking for more food within an hour.) I also liked their question of the day, got some idea/conversation flow which was nice. I will definitely come back again.

Totally vegan, thoughtful
Totally vegan, thoughtful and delicious. The way all food should be regardless of the fact that this is the most fun healthful cuisine I have ever had.
7/7/2013 12:00:00 AM
Cafe Gratitude properly named
Plaudits! Fresh organic ingredients, polite and fast servers and tasty, healthy food -- what more can I say! The peach cobbler with homemade ice cream was divine!
7/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
We came in without any high expectations, but were blown away by the great service and knowledge our pleasant waiter had. The food was excellent. Our party of 3 shared small bites of each others choices and none were disappointing. Since we were celebrating a Birthday, we ordered dessert and it was accompanied by the entire staff singing a high energy Birthday song by the Beatles. Love this place asnd can't wait to come back!
7/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
I am not a vegan, but this restaurant is, and so are my friends that I went there with. This was my second time there and again, it did not disappoint. The first time I got the I Am Humble (an indian-type dish) and the second I got one of the specials, which had a fun name but was basically just a tostada. Both were delicious and filling. Their menu is vegan and (mostly) gluten free, so great place to go with friends who have food alergies/restricted diets, but also doesn't disappoint for those who don't have any. The desserts are delicous as well!
7/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
The restaurant has a delicious food that cannot be found outside of California!
7/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
I've been here once before, and again, I was not disappointed. I took my boyfriend who was quite skeptical, but he loved it as much as I. It was very "clean" food that left us feeling good.
7/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
I am Happy
I went there with my husband for a Saturday night date. We made reservations for 6:45 which is rather early for a weekend. Do make reservations, the place filled up very quickly after we arrived.
It's an all vegan, organic restaurant with mostly raw dishes.
Everything was raw and super delicious. Service was excellent. The waiter was very knowledgeable about the food.
I will definitely come back. It's my new favorite raw restaurant.
7/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great food and service
I took a friend here after a successful first outing to try more dishes. We both drank an Immortal - chinese herbal tea based drink which had a really surprising flavor and we both enjoyed it. I ate a Humble and definitely could not finish - that portion was large. My friend enjoyed a Happy and we both left full and satisfied. Our server was attentive and food came out quickly. I want to come bk and try more dishes~
7/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
Desserts are the best part
Cafe Gratitude has great vegan food, hard to choose just one dish to eat. Bottles of wine are reasonably priced. Good service. Order a few desserts (the key lime pie is unreal ), best vegan desserts I've ever had
7/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
A lovely experience all around
In our party was a vegetarian, a gluten-free devotee and three meat-lovers...and we all had enjoyable vegan meals! We left stuffed and happy, and the wait staff was pleasant and effective.
8/4/2013 12:00:00 AM
Food that is nothing short if awesome. Lived it. The staff was fun. Little things that fell short were so overshadowed by excellence that I will stay with the great review. I lived this place!
8/9/2013 12:00:00 AM
Fantastic fresh real food
My husband and I are foodies and I try to eat vegan and organic as much as possible. While my husband still enjoys cheese, the vegan alternatives were outstanding and he wasn't missing dairy at all on our roasted potato appetizer or his tacos. Everything had a fresh but slightly spicy flavor. I had the quinoa bowl w/ seasonal vegetables and can't describe how delicious the hempseed pesto on it was. My organic Sangiovese was the perfect compliment to the meal. Will definitely come back when we return to LA
8/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
Vegan never tasted so good!
If I could eat like this everyday, I'd be a raw/vegan. This has quickly become my favorite place to eat every time I'm in Los Angles. It almost goes without saying that this is the place I want to eat when asked. I have taken so many people here, especially my meat eating friends. I have yet to have a friend not like this place. It is so amazing and flavorful. I can't wait to go again.
8/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
good for groups
I had a bridal party luncheon here for my sister. Everything was top notch- ambience, service, food. Great place to go with the gals!
8/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
We know it is a trend nowadaze but we find it rude to take away plates before all parties are finished with their respective courses.
Also, our waiter could be a bit more attentive as we really needed to check out but had a hard time getting the waiter's attention to bring the check....
8/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
Grateful for this place
I dream of I am terrific. I had I am opulent and it tasted like a bath. I had a very happy birthday.
8/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
Excellent food with a positive vibe
I really enjoy CG and have been several times. I appreciate the delicious, wholesome food and welcoming employees. The only minor complaint I have is the common loud disruption of the birthday singing. I would rather it be a private chant than blaring over the sound system and interrupt my conversation.
8/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
My new favorite
My daughter & best friend have been telling me to go for awhile. Why did I wait so long?
8/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
entering the vegans lair as a
carnivore i was bit reluctant to dine here.i was nervous that a coven of hippies would shame me as i arrived. so i walked there. i have entered the lair. when the wait person came up she asked if this was my first time? could she smell the meat on me from the night before? i swallowed hard told the truth. she smiled and said welcome. she told me of some things a first timer might order. i looked around this was no lair, no coven. i relaxed into my ginger lemonade.i ordered and eat every bite. then it was time for desert. they had only one that day. the wait person leaned in looked side to side and whispered that it had a smidgen of gluten.i knew then, that i could coexist with this breed of humans and have been back twice since.

Shockingly good food for a
Shockingly good food for a vegan place, and I'm a pure meatatarian (or carnivore...). Dishes are creative. This is my second visit, this time with a different group of friends - both times have been excellent. Will definitely go back.
8/31/2013 12:00:00 AM
Perfect for diners of all ilks
Great food made with love and creativity.
Great for celebrations -- hardly any guilt but max indulgence.

I am not a veggie/vegan, and dont like most restaurants that are. But the food at Cafe Gratitude is awesome!.
9/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
A bit more hectic than in Venice but great food and convenient location,

We love this place- it is our go to Sunday restaurant
9/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
outstanding energetic place.
This place is awesome for young guys. There is happy virus that feel happiness. I really recommend here for everyone.

I am Grateful
As always, my meal at GRATITUDE was delicious — so rare these days to find a restaurant where one can trust ALL of the food on the menu. All clean. All delicious. All the time... A lesson to all.
Something new for me this past visit — the gazpacho — really, really good — some of the best I have ever enjoyed.
10/1/2013 12:00:00 AM
Why does the hostess seat you within a foot of other diners when the restaurant is 75% empty. It's my fault I should have asked for another table.
I thought the hostess was rude. She didn't welcome us to the restaurant. She abruptly walked do us to a table.
Waitress was great. Food was good.
10/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
Best vegan and raw
Cafe gratitude always delivers with a diverse menu designed to nourish even the pickiest of eaters. They have something for everyone and this is a great place to bring someone apprehensive of vegan or raw. Save room for desert. The tiramisu is incredible but there's always something fantastic on the menu!
11/7/2013 4:00:00 PM
Favorite restaurant in LA
Cafe Gratitude is by far the best food you will ever have the pleasure of enjoying. You will leave full, happy and planning your next retreat to this gem. I ate there three times this week.

Gratitude For This Cafe
CAFE GRATITUDE is a unique place. The vegan menu is delish, the architecture is of wood, glass, indoor, outdoor seating makes this all pleasing to the eye. The 'question of the day' presented by the waitstaff always starts a thoughtful conversation. It's a restaurant with a mission LOVE, HONOR, SERVE. They do it very well.
11/19/2013 4:00:00 PM
This was my third time to visit Café Gratitude. The delicious aromas as you approach the restaurant, the lovely physical set-up, cheerful, but not obnoxious, wait staff and the delicious food--quickly served all make this a great choice for dining out.
11/22/2013 4:00:00 PM
I cannot believe I waited this long to go. The food was fantastic... And I am not vegetarian. I ran home and looked for recipes online! (Zucchini cilantro hummus, roasted maple Brussels sprouts, and the delicious sauce that comes on the roasted potato starter).
Service was attentive and very friendly. Very busy lunch scene.
11/25/2013 4:00:00 PM
Feel the love
The staff at Cafe Gratitude was warm and kind. You will feel genuinely welcomed and cared about. In addition to a remarkable staff, the food, which is Vegan, is also exceptional. I am not Vegan, however I view it as the most responsible diet from a variety of standpoints and love to find places where I can look forward to the food. The environment is calm and friendly, unpretencious and warm, yet it does feel a bit more upscale. The chef plates the food well and it makes you feel like real attention is paid to each dish. You wil love Cafe Gratitude!
