Gratitude Cafe - Calgary (Kensington)

Gratitude Cafe opened today.
Trying to eat more veggies so what better place than a vegetarian restaurant for lunch.
Very bright and open compared to its predecessor Sushi Zeal.
22 seats at tables plus 4 seats at the counter (if you want to watch your food prepared).
Staff was very friendly and enthusiastic.
Some items were not available (yet) as it was their 1st day.

I chose the stir-fry. Only brown rice and the sweet ginger soy sauce was available today. I was handed an auxiliary "whiteboard" to make my vegetable selections - 20+ options - you could have any or all. Or if you feel like rolling the dice; they will make the selections for you. Half a dozen picks later - it's in the hands of the kitchen.

A very full dinner plate hits the table in front of me. It is pretty good and filling. Not a complaint but I would have liked the vegetables to have been (temperature) hotter. Being primarily a carnivore, some of the nuances of vegetables may have been lost on me.
The table next to me had the chili and a sandwich both of which looked pretty good too.
Real cutlery; cloth napkins; previously used china (a touch of character); funny salt and pepper shakers.

Overall, a good experience and I would repeat.
