Café Gratitude is back!
Café Gratitude originally opened in February of 2016 in Castaway Commons on Westcliff Drive, serving what it called “consciously-sourced and thoughtfully-prepared cuisine.”
The restaurant closed late last year and reopened as upscale vegan restaurant Gracias Madre.
Now, Café Gratitude returns on Nov. 2 as a “to-go outpost” next door to Gracias Madre, which makes sense since they are both part of the Love Serve Remember restaurant group.
I’m told that Café Gratitude’s fully plant-based to-go concept will feature a seasonally-driven menu from Executive Chef Dreux Ellis, with plant-based breakfast and lunch signature favorites, smoothies, juices, herbal tonics, and other delights.
Although the café will be a strictly to-go concept, guests can look forward to a small outdoor seating area for those looking to grab & go and enjoy al fresco.
A COVID-safe grand opening event is in the works, with details to come in the next few weeks. I’ll be sampling the Café Gratitude cuisine and reporting back soon.
