Terrible service, we waited almost an hour for our food to come out and watched at least 2 parties that ordered after us receive their food and leave before we received our food. Waiter tried to argue with me and claim that everyone else was waiting. They comped part of our meal but it felt like a battle to complain for a legitimate reason.

Beautiful place, excellent food. It was the best vegan cafe where I've been in LA so far.
On the terrace, it was quite noisy but with a great atmosphere.
My friend and I came to celebrate her late birthday, and wanted to order the "Honest" plate. But my friend is allergic to the ginger and it was one of the ingredients there. One of the waiter asked the manager come to our table to discuss how we can replace ginger and if we need, other ingredients. The manager was super nice and very helpful.
We will definitely come back again and I would recommend this place to my friends.
Favorite.
Thank you!

Everything was great but the lady in the front was not friendly like she was to the others that came after us. Maybe because I was Hispanic? I don’t know but I loved the waiter he was so attentive and had personality.

Service was friendly and accommodating but slow. My dish, I Am Evolved, wasn’t true to bibimbap at first (too leafy) but became more palatable in the lower layers: warm, mushy, more blended. Best I’ve felt after a meal in a long time: nourished and satisfied but not bloated or oily. Makes me consider going vegan more often.

My "go to spot" every time I pass through or stay in Southern California. The food is creative and always delicious and Vegan! Wish we had one in Santa Barbara! The people that work there are happy and it exudes into the food and environment. A must try for anyone who has yet to have a positive experience with Vegetarian, Vegan and Raw cuisine!

We loved our meal at Cafe Gratitude. Very fresh and tasty food that is very good for you. The attentiveness to each person's dietary needs was fantastic. Service was not rushed, but we were visited several times after our food arrived to make sure we did not need anything. It's a winner.

I always have such high hopes for Cafe Gratitude, but this time y - the food was just okay. Good smoothies... bad coffee... and the banana bread was pretty great. But over all - I'd give it a b minus.

Salad was great. Very tasty. Quick service. A little corny with the way they suggest you order "I am ____". The question of the day for discussion at the table was an interesting idea. Since it was a business lunch we did not discuss but stilll a good question "What inspires you"? If they only had real bacon.

Pathetic in almost every way, Cafe Gratitude only offers a great location, scene, and ambiance. The brunch is miserable. Not just in a lackingly unappetizing usage of vegetarian options, but also in terms of service, presentation, and quality. It is unusual for me to write a review, but at least the Cafe was consistent in one thing—serving everything cold: the unappetizing coffee, the food, the service.

My girlfriend picked this spot out to meet up for dinner. I always enjoy eating at café gratitude. The menu here, food taste and ambiance never disappoint. Plenty of tasty options for those who don't even always eat vegetarian dishes (like myself). My first time eating at the venice location and it was just as up to par as the LA spot. Will be back if I'm ever in the area
