Café Gratitude is a collection of plant-based restaurants specializing in gourmet cuisines. We strive to create a menu and environment that supports health and sustainability for both our community and the planet. We practice business through a term we call “Sacred Commerce”, where we provide inspired service, honest and transparent communication, and express gratitude for the richness of our lives.

Our Mission

Café Gratitude is our expression of a world of plenty. Our food and people are a celebration of our aliveness. We select the finest organic ingredients to honor the earth and ourselves, as we are one and the same. We support local farmers, sustainable agriculture and environmentally friendly products. Our food is prepared with love. We invite you to step inside and enjoy being someone that chooses: loving your life, adoring yourself, accepting the world, being generous and grateful every day, and experiencing being provided for. Have fun and enjoy being nourished. Welcome to Café Gratitude!


Chef Dreux Ellis oversees the development and execution of the organic, plant-based menu at all Café Gratitude restaurants in Southern California. In April 2012, Dreux came to Venice, California as Executive Chef of Cafe Gratitude in Southern California bringing his health-based, flavor driven cuisine to a wider audience. He now oversees the culinary direction at all the restaurants in the region, including Arts District, Larchmont Village, Venice, and San Diego, and the new upscale iteration of the iconic restaurant, Gratitude, in Newport Beach and Beverly Hills.

    Eating clean is easy.
    To cleanse does not mean to diet. It means to detox, refine, and rejuvenate. However, the word “cleanse” has become intimidating and scary, because it now associates its meaning with deprivation and restriction.

  • With this misinterpretation in mind, we chose to develop our cleanse concept based on this simple truth: Eating clean is easy and furthermore, is a tangible and enjoyable lifestyle that promotes one’s vitality, health and well-being. It restores both the mind and body not only through what we consume, but through love, acceptance, gratitude, worth, creation, abundance and generosity.
