  • Curry chicken salad sandwich is my new favorite sandwich. Delicious!
  • A little scant on the indoor seating, but the owners have made The Root Caf an example of sustainability. The food is organic, local, and the restaurant is built green and found in an emerging area.
  • The banh mi is awesome, but the vegan breakfast hash is awesome. Also, everyone who works here is awesome.
  • There's almost always a long line to get in and a long wait to get food. The wait is worth it, don't give up!
  • Try anything and everything you'll soon be a regular of the root.
  • Add a duck egg to your burger. ;)
  • Banh Mi, vegan breakfast scramble, pancakes, biscuits
  • Try everything! It's all fresh and local. Super friendly staff and great service. Not a lot of seating so get there early if you want to sit inside.
  • The vegan banh mi. Probably the best vegan meal in town.
  • Inconsistent hours, always out of stuff
  • Try the Mexican Coke In A Bottle
  • A great place to have lunch. Locally grown produce, meat, eggs, etc. Amazing!
  • Everything is terrific.
  • Busy place. I tried smoked (grilled) mushrooms and it was not bad.
  • Sweet potato fries. Always choose the sweet potato fries...
  • Breakfast: eggs bnh m. Sub the crostini for a buttermilk biscuit with muscadine wine jelly if you can.
  • Love the expansion with more room! Get the Dante's Inferno Burger, love the combo of spicy and sweet! Spicy chocolate brownie is rich and delish!
  • Great vegan bnh mi
  • House salad with tofu (Hint: they'll let you replace the feta with tofu for a vegan option!) Love the mason jar waters and cloth napkins!
  • The Root Benny is delicious! I like bringing guests here for breakfast, it's home cooked goodness, and we don't have to cook or clean. Pet friendly patio is a plus.
