Vegan Thanksgiving meal at Cafe Gratitude - Larchmont L.A.

Cafe Gratitude is known for delicious organic and vegan food. I was very curious, what do they serve for Thanksgiving food? Sure they not gonna have any turkey or ham. Well, I just had to find out. Cafe Gratitude was serving free Thanksgiving meal to everyone. I got here around noon and this place was packed. Luckily, I was alone so I could be able to sat down right away. There were also live music. Food was great as always. I'm not a vegan, but I love food here. They serve pretty tasty vegan food.

After thanksgiving meal at Cafe Gratitude, I stopped by at Baskin Robbins and got a free scoop of ice cream using my birthday offer. Ice cream was good, of course, but the scooper guy was rude.

Then I stopped by at Baciami cafe and got a free cup of gelato, using some kind of promotional offer I had. Gelato here are very rich and creamy.

Drip - Koreatown

Finally, good coffee place opened up in Koreatown. I was here for the grand opening day. All the drinks and food were free. I got cappuccino, espresso pop with coke, vanilla latte, hand drip coffee, and also maybe macchiato, and more latte.

Check my FACEBOOK page for more photos.

This place is more like an art gallery. Also EVERYTHING is available for you to purchase, if you want to. That's right, you can purchase art, coffee, even chairs and tables.

Small Business Saturday Nov 26

This is about the event and the importance of buying locally. If you're planning on shopping that weekend anyway, why not take a break to eat at a local restaurant and do some good for your community?

Small businesses are the lifeblood of our communities. On November 26, make a pledge to shop small on Small Business Saturday. If millions of people shop small, it will be huge.
