Lunch at Cafe Gratitude

The Global Girl enjoys her favorite raw vegan Mediterranean wrap with live falafels at vegan restaurant Cafe Gratitude in Venice, California.

“I Am Happy” is the name of my favorite raw vegan specialty at Cafe Gratitude (it’s only available at their Los Angeles locations). It’s a Mediterranean wrap with live falafels, zucchini cilantro hummus, spinach, red onion, tomato, cucumber, red chili pepper sauce and garlic tahini dressing on live sun-dried tomato bread. Yum! Hope this will debunk the myth that being a raw vegan condemns you to a life of deprivation and austerity. Couldn’t be less true.

I discovered this lovely eatery in San Francisco at their location on Harrison street in the Mission district. And I fell in love with their food and philosophy. I was so happy when they opened their first LA location on Larchmont Boulevard and I couldn’t wait to experience their new Venice home. Love the feel. It was a particularly festive visit as they were celebrating a birthday (you can see some hand clapping in one of the photos).

The question of the day was: ” Who is your mentor?”
