Food was fantastic! Had a gluten free cinnamon roll and gluten free pancakes. All were so delicious and moist. Very accommodating to allergies, don’t need to ask for any modifications!

Almost everything on the menu is GF or can be made GF. I had the smashed potatoes & cinnamon roll, which were delicious. Staff is knowledgeable & supportive of food allergies. Highly recommend.

Not safe for Celiac! I used to eat here - when I went recently they told me they couldn’t comfortably serve Celiac clients.

NOT Celiac friendly!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The restaurant itself warns to not visit if you have ANY food allergies. So beware! While the food is good (or it was a few years ago when I went), this was a FAD thing they used to offer. This app needs to focus on only Celiac-friendly places. If there's a threat of gluten, it's not gluten free

Great organic and vegan food. Most the menu is gf. As a celiac we are always at risk for gluten in a facility that has some gluten items served. But, due to the many unique raw nutritious items, I consider it very low risk. My daughter and I are both celiac and we thoroughly enjoyed are meals without complications.

Not Celiac safe. Beware of vegan reviewers here who do gluten free as a fad diet and aren't celiac.

The extensive selection of vegan + gluten free desserts had me sold the minute I walked in the door! :) I ordered the pancakes, which were amazing! I ate every last bite! Fruit was extremely fresh and the cashew whipped cream was wonderful! I also had the Opulent (digestion aid drink), and I loved it! My boyfriend had the crepe, which he enjoyed. The crepe shell was hard, not soft, but he said it was good (not sure, but we think it was gluten free)! The fruit was fresh and the coconut milk yogurt and cinnamon glaze inside was delectable! I also purchased some treats to go. Staff were friendly and attentive. I will return!

Café Gratitude started in the bay area, and started up their second southern California location in Venice. They have a very friendly and spiritual vibe, where your server asks you a very thought-provoking question of the day. They offer a traditional eat-in restaurant experience, although they also have a convenient to-go area on the side. Their restaurant is entirely vegan and mostly organic, and they accommodate most allergy restricted diets. However, since most of their dishes contain nuts, they advise against dining with them if you have severe nut allergies.

My favorite dishes are "I am Comforted" as a starter (baked sweet potatoes), "I am Mahalo" (Hawaiian pizza) or "I am Fulfilled" (large salad) for my entrées, and "I am Irresistable" (chocolate and coconut pie) for dessert. Their "I am Grace" smoothie is wonderful too.

They claim that all of their menu items are gluten free with the exception of their breads. I did call to verify that all of the soy sauces they use are gluten free too. (Some raw vegan places like to use Nama Shoyu, which is not gluten free, but they assured me that they used a wheat free tamari sauce.)

Please see more gluten free (and dairy free) options in this area by checking out my other restaurant reviews:
