When it comes to dining in Orange County there will never be a shortage of places to try. The list just seems to get longer and longer, but we are not complaining. Our latest discovery has been Cafe Gratitude in Newport Beach. This location is a plant based eatery. It offers amazing juices and a wide selection of cocktails, beers, wine, and wellness shots. There is both a darling outdoor patio and indoor sitting. The decor is very rustic, modern, and has a touch of elegance but never stuffy.
The food is delicious and sustainable. They offer no meat but you wont feel like you are missing out because the flavors are tangy, spicy, and well crafted. I would highly recommend the Eclectic- Buffalo Cauliflower. I have had plenty of Buffalo Cauliflower but this one had to be one of the most memorable. Also the portion sizes here are generous and you are getting good value for your money. In terms of the juices the OC Squeeze recommendation would have to be the Clean: Detox.
Okay but let’s not forget dessert; The Awakening: Key Lime Pie is hands down our recommendation. This pie had to be one of the best key lime pies that we have ever tried. It also has a different type of consistency it felt unique. A little nutty if we must say! It made me think of pistacho ice cream.
Give this place a try if you are in the area; and if not they do also have then in different cities such as Beverly Hills, Venice, and San Diego; to name a few!
Have a wonderful week everyone and let us know if you have tried this location or any of the other ones!
