This is the unique menu you’ll find when you go to Café Gratitude, one of a collection of 100 percent organic restaurants serving gourmet, all plant-based cuisine. Each entree and menu item is named one of these uplifting words. How can you not like a salad named Luminous? Jason Mraz, confirmed health food junky, is partner in the Café Gratitude Restaurants around the Los Angeles area.
The Café boasts colorful pillows, benches and tables nestled close together, which encourages conversation, sharing and connectivity. Events throughout the year are listed on their website, and they offer a variety of juice cleansing options with personalized education about each.
Located at 333 Southwest Boulevard, this welcoming space has created a menu and environment that supports health and sustainability for both our community and the planet. They practice business through a term they have coined, “Sacred Commerce.” They strive to provide inspired service, honest and transparent communication and express “gratitude” for the richness of each of our lives. The restaurant itself is an expression of a world of plenty, and their food and people are a celebration of being alive.
They support local farmers, including their farm, Be Love Too, which produces as much organically grown produce as they can use for the café. They compost all food scraps which are then used to enhance the quality of the soil in that farm in Edgerton, Kansas. They also walk the walk in every way, including installing solar panels, and serving food on tables made from reclaimed wood. Most of the lights are actually made from wine bottles! All boxes, containers, paper and glass are recycled. All the to-go ware is biodegradable.
Every morsel of food prepared, every milkshake blended, and every coffee dripped is done so with an attitude of love. They invite you to step inside and enjoy being someone who chooses loving life, adoring yourself, accepting the world, being generous and grateful every day, and experiencing being provided for. There is no way you can leave without a smile on your face, and the feeling that you just ate a super healthy meal while taking part in wonderful, loving togetherness.
