Café Gratitude is one of the most interesting and deservedly popular vegetarian places in Los Angeles, where you can eat a really organic food. Forget about sense of hunger or a painful stay on a strict diet: the menu is varied, portions are impressive, and the flavors are crazy.
Order ‘Probiotic and curry bowl’ – a large portion of buckwheat or quinoa, plus pumpkin puree, seaweed, sauces, and vegetables. Portions are large, so you can take a green salad, bowl, and kombucha, and divide this serving for two. By the way, kombucha is made right there, so don’t be afraid of sediment in the glass, but just carefully remove it with a spoon. This is the best portion of probiotics ever!
Café Gratitude has its own philosophy: in the cooking process, only organic products from local farms are used. Also, the establishment takes a responsible social position and supports charitable organizations: there is a ‘Grateful’ dish in the menu, with each sale of which $1 is transferred to selected funds.
