Have been there a couple times.... Ultimate verdict is that it's totally worth the visit.
First time: dinner with a couple omni friends right when they opened. We shared a bunch of plates, everything was pretty great (some felt a little lackluster but still decent) the mushroom bruschetta was our fave.
Second time: lunch with the vegan bf; the lunch/breakfast menu actually seems more exciting. I got the grilled cheese and he got the grilled pear and Gruyere sandwich. Both were amazing but the grilled cheese and tomato soup almost caused me to shed a tear. Also had the s'more ganache for dessert which was so so so good.
Bottom line: somewhere between Crossroads and Flore as far as quality of food goes plus profits are donated to animal welfare organizations which is pretty rad.

I haven't eaten at Little Pine yet but I want to try it sometime.

Do they make their own cheeses? I would give a lot for a good vegan gruyere.

Somewhere between Crossroads and Flore is a big range. How does it compare to Cafe Gratitude or Sage?

The Gruyere was house made!!
Hmmmm more along the lines of Sage, I'd say some of the menu is "comfort" vegan food but fancified (is that a word?) a bit. And the dinner menu has more of an emphasis on smaller shareable plates with some heartier options such as shepherds pie, stuffed shells etc. We preferred lunch over dinner but we also had dinner there one of the first weeks they were open so that could have been a factor.

Thanks. It sounds delicious. It's a bit out of my way but I'll keep it in mind for the next time I'm on that side of town.

No problem! Yeah if it's not super close to you I wouldn't say it is worth trekking out of your way through L.A. traffic just for that but if you are in the area, totally worthy of a visit!
