  • M Café – introduces Contemporary Macrobiotic Cuisine – featuring balanced, nutritious, creative cooking which can be enjoyed daily by everyone, not just vegetarians or people with dietary restrictions. Our chefs prepare each item fresh daily, using only the finest ingredients without any refined sugars, eggs, dairy, red meat or poultry.
  • Crossroads – offers diners Mediterranean-themed small dishes, salads, farm-to-glass cocktails, and desserts in a fine-dining dinner style that encourages exploration. With its stylish atmosphere and refreshing sensibility, Crossroads isn’t just a leap forward in refined plant-based cuisine — it’s one of the most innovative culinary destinations in Los Angeles. It’s a decadent and indulgent dining experience approached in a conscious and cohesive manner.
  • Native Foods Café – was founded in 1994 in Palm Springs, California bringing into harmony our passion for fresh food, animals and the environment. Today, Native Foods Café has grown to become America’s premier fast-casual vegan restaurant group serving made-from-scratch, chef-crafted cuisine to thousands of food lovers every day. Our menu aims to please the palates of vegans and non-vegans alike, with seasonal updates of hearty dishes, delicious desserts and homemade beverages inspired by the travels of our chefs.
  • Whole Foods, too (slightly more expensive) – the highest quality natural and organic products. No additives in our meat EVER!
  • Café Gratitude – is a collection of 100% organic vegan restaurants specializing in gourmet vegan cuisines.

  • Rawvelution – Each week, Matt Amsden and RAWvolution create a box of prepared, organic, low-calorie raw foods that includes two savory soups, four gourmet entrées, four side dishes and two delicious desserts. This provides truly healthy meals that you can bring to work or have waiting for you when you return from a long day. The Box can be picked-up in Santa Monica, or delivered anywhere in the Los Angeles area. The Box is $120 for pick up (deliver is extra). Order one week at a time with no commitment to continue service, or set-up a standing order to be shipped to you each week!
