Café Gratitude's Downtown location brings its "ordering through affirmation" ethos to the center of LA, where you may have to declare, "I Am Thriving," to have the soup of the day. It's true: When the server takes your order, they will ask you, “What are you grateful for today?" and you will feel compelled to answer. Embrace it, because the bright, perfectly composed food will have you coming back. If you’re feeling especially in tune with the world, you can order the I Am Grateful, the simple but delicious "community bowl" of kale, quinoa, black beans and garlic-tahini sauce.

The concept of Cafe Gratitude is really cool! It's impressive how creative their menu is; I couldn't believe it is all plant based! Taste wise, the food was solid but wasn't good enough to make me come back. The interior is very clean and relaxed, perfect for a lunch or dinner where you want to sit and catch up with a friend. This location is great because of how close it is to everything in Arts District! 


Cafe Gratitude's Downtown location is just as pristine as their other spots - and yes, you'll have to order dishes like "I am Joyful" and "I am Plentiful." I've had a couple items here, none of which blew me away, but it's a nice space to come and work for a bit. 


Cafe Gratitude in Downtown LA right in the Arts District was great! I came here in the morning and enjoyed a much needed delicious coffee and breakfast potatoes/eggs with toast as well as some vegan desserts. Everything is delicious and the servers there were very helpful. Start your day there, then enjoy Downtown LA afterwards. #TOTastemaker
