Stop Vegan Restaurant Owner From Using Profits to Slaughter Animals


Target: Matthew Engelhart, Owner of Café Gratitude and Gracias Madre

Goal: Stop using profits from vegan restaurants to slaughter meat and promote meat-eating habits.

The owners of two vegan restaurants and Be Love Farm recently revealed that they have slaughtered and eaten meat from their farm animals. Not only did they slaughter and eat the meat, they also posted a video of themselves eating a hamburger. These actions are contrary to vegan beliefs and do not promote kindness to animals.

Although the owners state the restaurants are still vegan and always will be, it’s clear that the name of their farm, Be Love, is now a misnomer. Anyone is entitled to change their lifestyle and beliefs, but this change in lifestyle was funded by vegan restaurant patrons who believed that they were supporting people with beliefs similar to their own.

Demand that the profits from the two vegan restaurants are not used to fund a non-vegan lifestyle lived by the owners.


Dear Mr. Engelhart,

Patrons of your vegan restaurants are horrified by revelations that you both slaughtered and ate animals raised at Be Love Farm. While no one denies you the right to change your personal beliefs or lifestyle, patrons resent that the money they spent at your vegan restaurants was used to fund the death and ingestion of animals.

We demand that you provide assurances that the profits from your restaurants are not used to fund a non-vegan lifestyle.

    people should know that the engleharts (the meat eating animal murderers who started cafe gratitude) are part of an llc called love serve remember. this llc owns cafe gratitude & gracias madre. the ceo of this llc is lisa bonbright & this is taken directly from an interview she gave & posted on her website: (remember, this is the CEO of the LLC that owns cafe gratitude)
    Every Monday night I make from scratch a big pot of chicken and vegetable soup with whatever is in season from the farmers market. We have it with rice and grated parmesan cheese.
    here’s her website:
    also the engleharts son made a claim that the santa cruz, ca location of cafe gratitude has nothing to do with his parents. according to wikipedia the love serve remember llc owns that restaurant as well:
    Cafe Gratitude is a small chain of organic plant based restaurants. There are currently two locations in the San Francisco Bay Area in Berkeley and another in Santa Cruz and three in the Los Angeles area, in Venice, Larchmont Village, and in the Downtown Arts District. There are additional locations in Kansas City, Missouri and San Diego, CA. Except for the Kansas City location, Cafe Gratitude is majority owned and managed by Love Serve Remember, LLC (which also owns and manages Gracias Madre). here’s the link:é_Gratitude

    the other englehart involved in a “vegan” restaurant, their daughter mollie who owns sage “vegan” bistro, serves eggs & milk from their food truck at non vegan events. they also use honey at sage.

    this is a shady group with a history of lying & litigation behind them. tons of honest vegan places to dine at. do not give these hustlers a dime!!

    Wow,UNBELIEVABLE hypocrite!

  4. i can’t believe this, all vegans now must be broken, even more that they are already it’s disgusting these men are fake vegans!!! there’s no worse than that. Pretend to be vegan and consume and wear animal products, it’s a betrayal! which deserves the DEATH! after all, they are humans= MONSTERS but once you are vegan, it is for life or else you’re a pitiful person. That’s my opinion, no exuse.
    I’m like a japanese who loses his honor right now.
