Cafe Gratitude - Venice, CA

Yes, there is a place where drinking the "kool-aid" can make you younger and more beautiful, welcome to Venice Cafe Gratitude!  My first experience with a Cafe Gratitude was 8 years ago in San Francisco where I got my first taste of RAW vegan food at the absurd price of 89$ for lunch for two people...  The new Los Angeles locations are a different owner, but the same mantra on self affirmation menu items and questions of the day asked to customers.  "What are you grateful for?"  The stand out difference for the Los Angeles locations are the cooked menu items.  The Venice location doesn't have as many as the Larchmont, but the most important item is there -

I AM GRATEFUL : Our community supported grain bowl shredded kale with quinoa and black beans and garlic-tahini sauceMinimum donation is $3.00, Suggested value is $7.  Feed yourself and someone in need $14.

We order it saying "We'll have the $7 I AM GRATEFUL minus the garlic-tahini" we also get a side of their house made kim chi $3.5  Its a far cry from from the expensive raw food! 

They have beer and wine, too!!!  The new location is so beautiful, close to Whole Foods Venice with outdoor seating.  As you can imagine the crowd is as good as the food and vice versa!  Thank you Cafe Gratitude I AM FULL!

I love I Am Grateful with a side of kimchee! That's one of my go-to Cafe Gratitude dishes. It's like my very own version of I Am Whole!

[Larchmont does serve beer and wine. The owners are the same as SF, but with additional investors. :)]
