- Cafe or Bistro
Opening January 2016. Cafe Gratitude is a collection of 100% organic plant-based restaurants that specialize in gourmet vegan cuisine. The menu and environment is designed to support health and sustainability for both the community and the planet. Dishes are named after affirmations like “I Am Whole,” and are composed of real, organic ingredients from sustainable sources. The restaurant also works closely with local farmers to serve produce at its peak of freshness with deference to seasonality. Daily operations are conducted according to the principle of ‘Sacred Commerce,” whereby guests are offered both healthy food and a healthy ambiance that encourages them to view their lives from a perspective of gratitude. Originally founded in 2004 in San Francisco, Cafe Gratitude has three locations in Los Angeles (Downtown Arts District, Larchmont Village and Venice Beach), as well as restaurants in Santa Cruz, Berkeley, and Kansas City, Missouri. In addition to the first Gratitude restaurant planned for Newport Beach, another location of Cafe Gratitude will be opening in San Diego this year.
