Trendy and upbeat cafe featuring raw, organic foods, infused juices, and wine.

Restaurant, Coffee/Tea/Juice

Cafe Gratitude is a bright and upbeat cafe in an industrial and increasingly popular neighborhood of San Francisco. The fare is a diverse and interesting variety of raw food items, and only a few items (containing honey) are not vegan. Beyond the delicious food and plenitude of drink options is a bright and trendy decor and a clever menu on which options are affirmations like "I am luscious."

Selected as one of the top 20 vegetarian restaurants in the country for everyday dining!

This restaurant is now on my all-time favorites list, not so much because of the food (which is very good!), but more so for the calm, positive vibe it puts out. When I sat down and ordered my food, I just felt good. The servers' insistence on referring to dishes as "I am Filled", "I am Grateful", and "I am Peaceful" instead of calling them what they are - enchiladas, salads, sandwiches, etc, was a slightly annoying and hippie for me, but I nevertheless enjoyed my visit tremendously.

I looked through the cards on the table that had wonderful sayings, quotes, and exercises that emphasize the importance of being gracious, thankful, appreciating abundance, and recognizing friends for their accomplishments. I was so impressed and that I dropped a ridiculous $45 to buy the board game that these cards apparently belonged to!

As for the food....I started with a green juice (your typical green juice), and the raw bagel, which was a first for me. It came with a creamy nut cheese, sprouts, and caper "caviar" on a sprouted seed bun. I'm not a huge fan of raw bread but this was very interesting and I did enjoy it.

For my entree, I went with the raw enchiladas, which were pretty good. My favorite part of the dish was the "Mexican cabbage salad", which seemed pretty simple but had a wonderful, unidentified dressing on it. For dessert, I had the maca cacao ball, which was good, but didn't satisfy my craving for a rich, decadent dessert.
