Food is always a scrumptious vegetarian pleasure here -- "Whole" bowl is a regular favorite. However, both people who ordered the mushroom burger were disappointed -- it's much spicier than they were led to believe from the waiter.

It was a cool windy day and eating on the terrace was superb. The waitstaff is very informative. The French fries are to die for.

It took over 10 minutes to have a server come to our table even though the restaurant was empty. Once we did receive out food, the french fries were luke warm and soggy, the cauliflower was limp and randomly splattered with sauce and poorly plated.
The salad was the only redeeming quality.
Our server continued to ignore us and we had to rely on the bus servers to get us what we needed.
I have been to Cafe Gratitude before and enjoyed it very much, this might have been an off day, by everyone.

Cafe Gratitude is a real gem. I'm a very healthy eater, so it's no surprise that I love it, but I've brought many friends who are horrified that they are going to a vegan restaurant only to become huge fans. I wish all restaurants had such healthy and tasty choices! The only down side to me is that it is noisy, and when they have music on, the speakers are of very bad quality and I find it adds to the noise which is a drag.

Cafe Gratitude is one of my favorite vegan restaurants! There menu is so hearty and filling and uses hard to make sauces and nut creams that I'm not going to make at home.

We have been a few time now to Cafe Gratitude. Brought 2 young adults along who had never eaten at a vegan restaurant. They really enjoyed it. They were surprised how tasty the food was...they thought they would be eating a block of tasteless tofu! The waitress was great about answering any questions we had. We like the atmosphere, too. Never feel rushed. Wish they would open a Cafe Gratitude closer to Torrance.

The staff was very friendly and welcoming. The Pizza was ok but the guacamole was delicious. The mushroom carnitas was outstanding. I couldn’t believe how much it tasted like pork. So so good. I had the 3 taco special. Terrific.

I've always wanted to try out this place and finally did! Just like other vegan place, some plates are really good and some are a little interesting. I loved soul bowl I ordered, but no so much the salad and key lime pie. But would definitely love to give it a try again and try different plates from the menu.

This was a fabulous first experience with Cafe Gratitude! We came with a mostly non-vegetarian group and everyone loved all the food. The waitress was really friendly and helpful and we will definitely return (even though we aren't vegetarians!). The 'fried calamari' of young coconut was a big hit that we all kept talking about for days afterwards!

Loved it. My brother was in town, he's vegetarian, but I wanted a "nice" restaurant, so checked both boxes! Love this place - so much to explore, for everyone. The food was delicious and came out insanely fast, which I can't guarantee for everyone, but it was awesome. And our waitress was funny and top notch.

One of my very favorite restaurants. The food is always delicious. For Valentine’s, they had an amazing pink, heart-shaped strawberry meringue dessert. They are very conscientious about allergies and making sure diners don’t eat something they shouldn’t. Everything they serve is vegan and they have some items that are also gluten-free, but your carnivore friends will like it, too.

This is the second time we’ve been to Gratitude. I’m trying to transition to a plant based diet so I’m trying to find restaurants that are either vegan or plant based. Gratitude fits the bill. The food is freshly prepared and delicious. Who says good for you food has to be boring and bland. The cuisine is very creative and tasty. Try the key lime pie. It’s unbelievably good. Other pluses are $10 corkage and 90 minutes free parking around the side of the building. This is a big plus because parking in Venice can be difficult. Getting reservations is highly recommended. Now for the negatives. There’s only one. The main dining area is very loud with very few booths. If you’re not lucky to get a booth you can expect to be squeezed into a table with little space in between. If that doesn’t appeal to you I recommend eating in the closed patio. Not totally quiet but at least you can hear what’s being said across the table. Having said all this I definitely do recommend this restaurant for everyone whether vegan or not.

We were excited to go there and made a reservation but the hostess didn’t seat us for an hour after we got there and I think accidentally gave our table away. We reserved our table to make it for breakfast but since we were seated so late we didn’t get to have breakfast,. Bummer but the food was good
