Vegetarian: Café Gratitude

The bright and welcoming ambiance at Café Gratitude mirrors the vegan restaurant’s approach to food. Dishes are made with fresh and sustainably sourced ingredients, and each has a fun and sunny name. Try the Awesome sandwich, a take on eggplant Parm with herb-cornmeal crusted eggplant, marinara sauce, cashew cheese, tomatoes, Brazil nut Parmesan, fresh spinach and basil on grilled ciabatta.
