VegKC Restaurant Meetup - Cafe Gratitude

If you RSVP show up.

Café Gratitude is a restaurant which originated in California.  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, Grain Bowls, 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

We select the finest organic ingredients to honor the earth and ourselves, as we are one and the same.

      Oh, they had another table we could have started... didn't realize anyone else had shown up after the table was almost full. Hopefully you can make it next time.

    Great group of people as usual; enjoyed everyone. However, multiple problems w/ venue--parking overpriced (some of us can't walk several blocks w/o suffering), food overpriced, poor service w/ several mixed-up orders, no refills on drinks etc--unlikely to ever go back. Food was tasty but not worth the aggravation or the expense.

    OMG! I was on way out the door, when Foster Dog peed all over floor. Got out the carpet cleaner, and it leaked the dirty solution all over too! Now I'm cleaning up both messes! Guess it wasn't meant for me to come today to veg out w/friends at cafe gratitude. :(

    I work until 4pm. What are the chances that if I passed by around 4:15 people would still be there? IF you think there will be some lingerers I'll show up to say hi!

      Typically it wraps up after about two hours... but it depends, sometimes we have some chatty people and it goes a while longer... I have somewhere to be afterwards so I probably won't be there so long, but some others may.

    I just found out that I have to go out of town that weekend. I was looking forward to attending my first Meetup and trying a new place. I guess I will have to wait for the next one.

    I've eaten there twice, little flavor, LOTS of brown rice and a big price...I don't recommend CG at all.

      It depends on what you order, it's a little hit and miss. They have some awesome coconut cream based desserts... and some of their main dishes are pretty good.

    Hey everyone, I just read an article about the impacts of pesticides on our health. And am hoping that we can find local, organic vegan places to eat at more often than not for our health.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
