    Always a wonderful experience to eat at gratitude café. As soon as you walk in, you can take a deep breath, exhale and relax,because you inherently know that everyone will just be kind and good to you throughout your stay. And obviously, the food is amazing as always. I had the Indian bowl, “I am Humble,” last night and it was phenomenal.

    Menu was intended to be fresh and healthy, entirely vegan. However, they failed to realize that gallons of oil are not a part of that nutritious perspective. Good ideas, bad execution. But more significantly, the service was s***. Seated like the hostess didn't notice us, waited 20 minutes before a bus boot brought water and longer for the incompetent waitress. Who forgot most of our requests and shoved the check at us without asking if we'd like dessert. Not returning.

    I waited in the parking lot for 20 minutes because the machine didn't work, not necessarily the fault of the restaurant, but still super annoying. Avoid the garage!

    I loved having a menu with so many dairy free and mostly gluten fee items — I usually just have 1 or 2 options to choose from so it was amazing to be able to order pretty much anything. And the food was good!

    Wonderful place. Relaxing. Good breakfast and juices. Unless the place is packed (weekend) they are very accommodating long business meeting or even laptop work. Highly recommend for casual California vibe.

    Accueil agréable et super explications du menus. La personne du service a été super. Malheureusement le restaurant était très bruyant et il fallait hausser le ton pour s'entendre. Ça résonne beaucoup. Les plats sont bons mais rien d'exceptionnel. Un moment pas très reposant finalement malgré un excellent service à table.

    The weekend gets busy, but weekdays are pretty good especially in the morning (opens at 10). Parking can get difficult but that's Venice beach. Service is generally good and not hurried. Baked goods are between $6 -10, brunch items $17-25. Dinner is $25-45. It's got a great casual vibe and definitely a healthy crowd. And the food is pretty good overall. Scrambled tofu breakfast is excellent.

    Appetizers came after meals arrived. For 3 of us, ordering and getting our food took 45 min and after we finished, took 15 min to get the check... in total we were there for 2 hours! But...the food is fantastic. Definitely recommend the bruschetta appetizer... but demand it comes first!
    Cafe Gratitude - VeniceResponded on May 14, 2024
    Thanks for the feedback, IndianFoodie! We're glad to hear that you enjoyed our food, especially the bruschetta! I've shared your feedback about the waiting time with our team so that we may better serve you and our other guests in the future. We look forward to serving you again soon.
