The inside is super cute and full of positive energy.
I loved their self-serve water bottles on the tables.
The card games were fun, too.
After perusing the menu, Julie and I decided to share a few things…
First up – the I Am Trusting Tamal Plate – (from the menu) “A handmade corn tamal made with stone-ground heirloom masa and filled w/seasonal vegetables served with beans, salsa verde & Mexican cilantro coleslaw”
Loved the tender tamal and it was so flavorful yet light.
We also shared the I Am Graceful Indian Biryani Bowl – (from the menu) “Steamed brown rice or quinoa tossed with seasonal veggies, basil, cilantro, mint & cashews in an Indian coconut-curry sauce”. We got quinoa.
Ready to dig in!
The bowl was so cute. It almost looked like a salad at first. It was sooo delicious! I loved the sauce.
And a cowboy entered the restaurant at some point and serenaded all of us over food.
After ogling the dessert display, Julie and I knew we had to split one (ok…or two 😉 ).
I got the I Am Marvelous Raw Cacao Mocha with steamed hazelnut milk – “Elixir with steamed nut milk, cacao powder, vanilla, & agave”
“We shared an I Am Joy “Rawmond Joy”…
and I Am Devoted Coconut Cream Pie – “Rich coconut cream pie in a coconut-date crust”
Wow…the desserts were amazing! I love how vegan desserts are so delicious yet so light, too.
Thank you Cafe Gratitude for being so awesome!
After lunch, I ventured back to the hotel with Mara and Julie.
And Julie haled her first taxi cab…just for us. Awww!
Then it was time for registration.
And I met Dorian of Foodbuzz!
Not to mention I got my swag bag…woohoo!
Details on the swag bag next time…plus more SF fun!
