VegKC January Restaurant Meetup - Café Gratitude

Café Gratitude is a restaurant which originated in California, and a group of local people pulled together and created one opening here in Kansas City in May of 2012. The all vegan restaurant uses local and organic foods, they also serve a blend of health conscious raw and cooked dishes.

They take a somewhat alternative approach which will become apparent when you read their menu. They serve a variety of Starters, Salads, Main Dishes, Sandwiches, Breakfast/Brunch Items, Teas, Coffee, Fresh Juices and Smoothies, and desserts (such as rich coconut cream based pies!), with items like...

I AM AWESOME
Herb-cornmeal crusted eggplant parmesan on Panini with marinara sauce, cashew ricotta, sliced tomatoes, arugula and basil. Served with a side salad 11 Add hemp seed pesto 2

I AM EFFERVESCENT
House made ginger-ale served on ice with fresh ginger juice, lemon juice and agave topped with sparkling water 4.25/7.25

I AM FORTIFIED
Sautéed seasonal vegetables & kale, brown rice or quinoa, topped with your choice of sauce: sesame-ginger, garlic tahini, thai almond 12.75 Add avocado 2

You can see a bigger sample variety of dishes on their website: www.cafegratitudekc.com

    By the way, for those of you who attended, Cafe Gratitude recently changed their policy to only allow a group check to be split between four people. Obviously complicated to impossible with 15-20 or more people. We've talked to them about it and they are willing to work with us in the future on it. In the mean time something to be aware of if you go back with more than four people or four couples / families. Thanks everyone for joining us, it was fun. :)

      Hi, Jenny. We are aware of your attendance. When we confirm a meetup with a restaurant, we usually add a few extra people to our final count to give a little bit of wiggle room for last-minute RSVP changes. As always, thanks for updating your RSVP and I hope you have a good time with VegKC today!

    Welcome everyone. We do a variety of veg*n friendly restaurants, generally more local and especially vegan / vegetarian places. Plus the occasional potluck. We have a place tentatively selected, but will be confirming it shortly.
