    Come here and have a Good Start to the morning. A lovely green drink that's not sugary. A somewhat rare combination.

    Lots of excellent paleo options here, but the spinach salad with chicken has recently sup-plant-ed the wild salmon entrée as the favorite.

    Scared of green juice? (I know, me too.) Order the Green Basic, it's sweet and not too "green" tasting. Also- do yourself a favor and get some vegan chocolate chip cookies #ImnotaveganIjusteatalot

    The best and also most cost friendly lunch item is the masala stew. Sub out bread for quinoa and drop it into the stew. You'll thank me later.

    This place is SO SLOW. No wonder it has been over a year since my last visit. I ordered a pressed juice to go, and it has taken over 15 mins. Too expensive and too slow. Not coming back.

    Originally named Letus, this was one of the first trendy organic deli type restaurants. Located in the trendy (also called douchey) Marina district. Tastey food, but not as good as Cafe Gratitude.
