LA Café Gratitude Opens

San Francisco-based vegan restaurant Café Gratitude expands and opens its new location in Los Angeles, Calif.

Vegan restaurant Café Gratitude opens its new LA location today. Founders Matthew and Terces Engelhart opened the first Café Gratitude seven years ago in San Francisco’s Mission district after being inspired by eating living foods. The restaurant offers various raw and cooked vegan dishes such as the Live Sunburger and the Indian Biryani Bowl. This is the couple’s first Southern California venture, and they have made sure the menu highlights seasonal produce specific to the new location. Café Gratitude has a total of six Northern California locations, as well as SF-based Gracias Madre, the Engelharts’ boutique Mexican food restaurant.
