This is the question that your waiter will ask you before you order your meal. The food at Cafe Gratitude is all raw, organic, and vegan. Just what you would expect in liberal Berkeley. However, it's actually a lot more delicious than you would expect. They certainly know how to make the most out of the limited ingredients. I had some sort of sampler plate that had a great garlic hummus and olive tapenade. The decor is pretty charming and the waiters are friendly. On the day that I went there was actually some sort of party for a waiter who was leaving so there was dancing and live music. However, the atmosphere here is a little overbearing... Me and my friend were approached by other patrons who just wanted to chat. Very friendly, but a little too hippie and new-age for me.

I love the idea of eating raw, and am always up for simply munching on an avocado with lemon or a piece of fruit. But much of the raw food I've been served has felt like an imitation, and a poor one, of 'regular' food.
Cafe Gratitude is an entirely different experience. The interior feels sumptuous to me, with it's bare brick walls, exposed beams and large format prints of oil paintings with halogen spot lights. Not exactly fancy, but upscale and comfortable. The wait staff is efficient, but much friendlier than at traditional restaurants and by the time I've ordered my meal, I already feel like I've made a new friend.
The food is nothing short of amazing. I haven't ever had a dish that I didn't like and all my friends have always enjoyed their meals too. Much of it is served room temperature, so look for the Warm Meals section if it's a chilly night and you really want something to warm your tummy. There is more to say about the food than I could possibly say, so please ask them all your questions. How do you cold brew coffee? What's different about your beers? How do you make nuts taste like a cheese spread?
Also, leave room for dessert! They are all shockingly great. Personally, even though I'm a fiend for chocolate, their key lime pie is my favorite.
Be warned, with the amount of specialized preparation that goes into creating these incredible meals, the price rises fast. You can easily get an entree for $10, but a smoothie might be another $7 and the dessert $6. I generally budget $50 for an ample meal for two, with drinks.
One final note. The creators of this restaurant started by creating a board game called The Abounding River. It's a game you play cooperatively to shift your consciousness from scarcity to abundance. This applies to money, but also to love, friendship and fulfillment. Then, when they created the chain of restaurants, they brought that same sensibility into a tangible form, so look for playing cards from the game on your table and answer a few of the questions. And expect to be asked while you're there, "What are you grateful for?"
