Im not vegan but my friends are, and by far this is the most tasty vegan restaurant we've been to, is soooo good now I crave it and come in on my own.
Food here is AMAZINGLY tasty, everything is always fresh made with seasonal produce so the menu offers new stuff quite often. I love how the texture and flavors complement each other, sometimes I even forget is all vegan.
The service is great, the concept of the restaurant is very unique so the vibes are always joyful.

Food consistency was bad from previous orders. Waitress could have cared less and said if that was the worst thing that could happen that day, she would be fine. Had nothing to do with her. The pious Cafe Gratitude attitude gets old. I’m no longer planning to visit any more of these establishments.

I love Cafe Gratitude. Eating here is a very special experience. For me it is always a treat, memorable, wonderful, affirming. I love the food. I usual come her for lunch. It is a wonderful place to take friends from out of town, or in my case visiting from another country.

Food took way too long, other tables who ordered after us got their food first. Food was cold, order was incorrect, and it took forever to pay and get out of there. Never again.

The server Crawley is excellent!

Sometimes the kitchen is not consistent with the portion size, one day it’s full and others it’s about 30% less.

The food is great unfortunately the service can be poor. We waited over 30 min for our food at the bar, got cold fries (which they replaced) and unfortunately just lack of awareness because the bar is worried about preparing drinks and smoothies.
There is one amazing server named Crawley but most of the times service is disorganized and there seems to be a break down in communication with the kitchen.
On top of that the management never checks to see how we are doing with the service and experience.

Well, I thought I knew their best dish was, in my "Humble" opinion. (For the uninitiated, that's actually the name of a dish -- previously my favorite.) My new must have is the Nachos with Mushroom Carnitas. Unbelievably delicious!

I was not pleased with the fact this self proclaimed "vegan" establishment supports animal cruelty by selling honey. The waitress exclaimed "it's sustainable. It's a controversial topic, but that's why we call ourselves vegan".. it's really simple though.. honey comes from bees, bees are animals, not things for us to exploit and use for profit. Very disappointing you call yourself a vegan establishment.

To add to my experience, the food was not very good..6 different people and only 2 enjoyed their meal which were raw dishes that didn't require much culinary skill 😬 my fiancée and another friend ordered the same cooked meal, in which the whole table tried it and no one liked it. So I politely asked the waitress to take ours off the bill as we weren't satisfied with the food and didn't want to try anything else, and I was met with "We prefer to have you ask earlier so we could've made you something else"... clearly she wasn't listening.. and to prove that she wasn't she didn't even take it off the bill, instead she took my friend's much more expensive meal off her bill, in which she said "oh, well I guess you can just not tip me then" ... 🤦 the tip is for great service which I did not receive. I feel unheard, upset, frustrated, gyped and disappointed. I wish I could take the whole experience and the $ back. It was not worth it.

It's amazing to be able to look at a menu and instead of the things I *can* eat being marked, the things I *cannot* eat are marked, because on the whole menu, there are only 3! Everything is vegan and almost everything is gluten-free. I have to avoid quinoa, too, but it's easy to do with so many options!

Have eaten here many times before. Food has always been consistently good. Until this visit where everything from salad to entrees was dull and flavorless. Almost like a throwback to bad vegan food from decades ago. It was like the chefs forgot that herbs and spices are good to add to food preparation. Will not be returning anytime soon.

Everything is organic. All the vegetable/ fruit juices are organic ( according to the welcoming waiter we had). Love that, knowing what you eat makes a difference to your health. Some dishes the flawor might be a bit muddle since everything is in the bowl but still tasty and good for you!

I used to love this restaurant but don't think I am going to go back anytime soon. They have pared down their menu as well as their portion sizes and the last two times I visited, I left hungry. They charge $10 for a scoop of guacamole with crudite which consisted of 1 cauliflower floret, 2 stalks celery and a couple of slices of carrot. The rest of the meal was consistently small and underwhelming. A lot of better vegan restaurants have opened up since Cafe Gratitude launched so I think its time they revise their menu.

I made the reservation for 3 people, I arrived first and the second guest was then seated. The third guest was not seated at the table and almost left after waiting 25 minutes. Not a good impression. The service was very slow - would not recommend this restaurant for a business meal.

Cafe Gratitude was about as a fantastic and unique meal that anyone could ask for. Went there with my wife and 2 kids (12 years old) for a Sunday Brunch / Lunch - everyone found multiple things on the menu to choose from and I have to tell you everything that we ate was incredible! The staff was very attentive and had some great recommendations to enhance the meals. No doubt that will be back very soon!
