Excellent food. I had one of the bowls with kimchee. The food was thoughtfully put together and the presentation was good. The taste was out of this world. I then ordered the Almond Joy dessert and I was in heaven. I enjoyed every bite of...More

This is an all vegan restaurant, and was the only place in the area for breakfast- we wanted more than pastries. It’s very new age-y/ hippie. All the dishes are named things like Calm, Festive, etc. The wait staff is nice and knowledgeable about the...More

Great food, I went there for breakfast 2 days in a row. I tried different things on the menu and everything was delicious and gluten-free: granola with yogurt, donut and cinnamon roll. I really recommend this place, a good way to start off the day!

Cafe gratitude, and some of San Diego's other vegan eateries, have demonstrated how delicious and flexible food can be even with the limitation of only using vegan ingredients. I am encouraged to try more vegan food when I go back to the UK! I particularly...More

Although I am not a vegan, I always enjoy a plant based restaurant. This place has it going on, hands down. When you place your order, you say “I am” followed by what you care for. In example I ordered a drink called Healthful and...More
