We came right at dinner time so it was not busy yet which was a plus. The place is tiny so I can only imagine how loud and crowded it may get during busy hours. The food was great and I’m not sure if I’d be back, but I enjoyed my meal!

I really tried. I tried to be open minded about healthy vegan food but I can’t. I came here in 2011 while I was on a detox. I didn’t enjoy it. I tried again because I had a meeting with a photographer and I really wanted to like it. I ordered the Mucho which is a Mexican bowl. First, it didn’t state on the menu that it would have sunflower seeds. I hate sunflower seeds in my food. By itself, fine. In meals, no. I don’t know what it is about vegans and sunflower seeds. They put them in everything! The photographer I was meeting with got a pasta, I wish I got the pasta.

I’m sorry Cafe Gratitude, but maybe you’re too fancy for me. I just can’t do it.


 Don’t mind the first photo, someone in our group was being boring (and super healthy).

As for the rest, it was amazing. I didn’t believe that a brunch place could be voted the best without alcohol. Well, I was wrong.

Of course, when we got seated, I was already drunk. We went to the Village Idiot and grabbed drinks (lots of drinks) before starting breakfast. 😛
