Best Raw-Food Restaurant Los Angeles 2012 

Café Gratitude

Café Gratitude — a beautiful, bright spot with a large outdoor patio in Larchmont — serves totally vegan food that is as impeccably and locally sourced as any self-respecting restaurant can offer. Everything is organic, and comes in fantastically large portions that can be shared. We've never tried anything that wasn't creative, healthy and filling — and the slightly chewy, flavorful flax chips that you can order as a side dish will become an obsession. Yes, the menu gives all of the dishes monikers like "I Am Liberated" or "I Am Festive," which are meant to add to the overall positive vibe. Do you have to order using the names? Of course not, but that does take away some of the fun of the place. 639 N. Larchmont Blvd., Larchmont. (323) 580-6383, cafegratitudela.com.
