We have been going to California for years now whenever the opportunity presents itself. And every time we are in California, one of the first things we do is to have breakfast, lunch, to brunch or have dinner at Cafe Gratitude in Venice.

Cafe Gratitude is our “madeleine de Proust”. As soon as we walk through the door, we relive all of our previous trips to California. From the very first bite, we are back home. The princess loves coloring the drawing handed by an always smiling waitress or waiter and we have the feeling that we never left! We even try to sit at the exact same spot every time!

We really enjoyed …

The princess loved

The princess loves Café Gratitude for its atmosphere, its cool furniture and its coloring. And then, after all, it’s our favorite restaurant when we go to the beach in Venice in the morning, but also if we go to Pacific Park in Santa Monica. Whats her favorite course? Pasta, of course!

Her parents liked

We love everything about Cafe Gratitude. From the names of the courses such as “I am Grateful” or “I am Bold” to the fact that everything is delicious: from the addicting desserts, to the muffins and raw cheesecakes. And of course, you absolutely have to try one of the smoothies.



Around $ 18 for a course like a hot dish, a large salad or a wrap.
