Gracias Madre honors traditional Mexican cuisine, but gives it a plant-based twist with fresh organic ingredients. This local chain was founded by the family behind the popular Cafe Gratitude restaurants.

Gracias Madre is a 100% vegan and organic restaurant with a commitment to serve meals that are good for you and for the planet. Locally grown ingredients and sustainability are also key in their mission. In fact, they even started their own farm to grow their own produce!
Open for lunch, dinner, and weekend brunch, Gracias Madre offers a wide variety of starters, salads, and entrees. Each dish is thoughtfully constructed to be full of fiery Mexican flavor, nutritious, and beautifully presented. Their entrees consist of familiar traditional dishes such as enchiladas, tacos, and quesadillas. However, they also offer some less common and more unique dishes, like Sopas Con Mango and Nopales made with stewed cactus. Even their Fruit Salad is unique. It includes avocado, coconut bacon, chile, and lime!
And of course, what restaurant would be complete without an incredible dessert menu? Gracias Madre takes decadence to a new level with house-made sweets like Tiramisu con Mezcal, Pumpkin Flan, and Mexican Wedding Cookies.
Gracias Madre also offers creative twists on classic coffee and tea beverages, like dairy-free Cafe con Leche and Horchata Lattes. For imbibing, they do have a full bar along with a weekday happy hour with food, specialty drinks, wine and beer on tap.
