Cafe Gratitude is one of my favorite restaurants in Venice Beach. Located on Rose Ave near yoga studios and shops, the scene is always a good one. It serves delicious organic vegan & raw cuisine as well as juices and smoothies, and is usually packed but is worth the wait. Try the "elevated" rose water lemonade, "cool" mint chip smoothie, kelp noodle pad Thai, and veggie burger... You can't go wrong. Also serves wine, beer, and coffee.

Vegan Eats In Larchmont
No need to go all the way to Venice or up to the Bay Area to get your Cafe Gratitude fix. There's one in Larchmont. Vegans and healthy eaters on the east side of Los Angeles rejoice! I am not a vegan or a vegetarian. I am a notorious meat eater but on a whole I love to eat healthy good for me foods to balance my naughty eating habits. Cue in Cafe Gratitude. Everything is vegan and delicious. After a hike in the canyons, I don't want to screw up my healthy day so I head here for some delicious eating! Here's a blog post about more vegan dining options in LA: http://www.rtwgirl.com/los-angeles-vegan-restaurants/
Cafe Gratitude has brought it's delicious vegan fare from San Francisco down to the oceanside city of Venice Beach. This location is definitely a place to be seen since its arrival on the no longer 'up and coming' Rose Avenue. What hasn't changed is the unbelievable but true free Thanksgiving meal that benefits a fair share of Venice locals in need. Afterward pop over to Moon Juice or be sure to grab happy hour at Rose's OG, Venice Beach Wines.
