Take a little more transit and eat a little less meat — two things you can do to reduce your impact on the environment. In this installment of Meatless Mondays with Metro, let’s take a look at Café Gratitude.
Café Gratitude is a plant-based restaurant specializing in gourmet cuisines. But, while their food is good, the first thing that pops into my head whenever I hear their name is Jason Mraz, the Grammy-winning artist who is also a restaurant partner and, incidentally, an avocado farmer. It’s no fault of the food, I’m just a big Mraz fan.
The café serves up soups, salads and sandwiches, and they also have some nice hearty entrée items. The summer polenta is very satisfying, and you’ll probably find the vegan nachos hard to share.
There are a few Café Gratitude locations, and the three easiest to Go Metro to are in Venice, Larchmont and the Arts District. To reach the Venice location, take Metro Bike Share to Rose and Rennie. To reach the Larchmont location, take Metro Bus 10/48 to Melrose/Larchmont. To reach the Arts District location, take Metro Bike Share to 3rd and Santa Fe, or walk from the Gold Line Little Tokyo/Arts District Station.
