Cafe Gratitude vein: the food is inspired "by wisdom from the likes of Tony Robbins," the founder of laughter yoga, Madan Kataria, and Masaru Emoto, who believes human consciousness has an effect on on the molecular structure of water. In essence, "Californian cuisine."
Positive words abound (laughter, happiness, joy) on both the walls and in the naming of the menu items, a smattering of salads, sandwiches, burgers, pizza, Liege waffles for breakfast, and Armstrong's famous short rib grilled cheese sandwich. Oh, and there's no booze. For a behind-the-scenes look at pre-opening festivities and more on the restaurant, check out the Facebook page.
