So many new restaurants have popped up since I moved away from LA six years ago! I first heard of this hip restaurant from my mom (can you believe it?! haha). On a quick 3-day trip home to attend my cousin's graduation at USC, I hit up my college roommate Karen to meet up since we hadn't seen each other in so long. Her coworker who is also vegetarian suggested this little gem, and I'm so glad she did. My mom was right! Cafe Gratitude is very delicious, and all vegan! Karen and I ordered three dishes (more than enough to share).
My favorite was the appetizer and sandwich - the autumn bruschetta and the mexican torta. All of the flavors came together so nicely for the bruschetta. I never had a butternut squash/ roasted radicchio bruschetta before and I LOVED it! Super refreshing and tasty, and the texture of the baguette added an extra crunch! The mexican torta was spicy, which is what sold me on the sandwich. I love spicy stuff, and vegan chorizo? A+ ! I really enjoyed both these entrees at Cafe Gratitude. Karen and I were both so bummed we couldn't try EVERYTHING because there was only two of us. Don't you worry though, I WILL BE BACK!! And next time, I'll be sure to try other dishes and keep you posted on what's good!!
What are YOU grateful for?
