The founders and owners of Café Gratitude have proven today that lightning can indeed strike twice with the opening of their new, vegan, organic Mexican restaurant, Gracias Madre. The charming eatery is located in San Francisco’s Mission district, one of the hippest neighborhoods in the city by the bay. Menu items include classics like enchiladas, and traditional fare with a pleasant vegan twist. Chefs easily veganize chiles rellenos by filling roasted chiles with squash, corn, spinach, and vegan cheese, served in a tomato-habanero salsa. All of the restaurant’s cheeses, milks, and ice creams are made with nuts, and all tortillas and tamales are handmade.
