Amazingly delicious - its a must! Super fresh and lots of options - was hard to choose. Our daughter had been here before and recommended it. We shared the special, berry stuffed french toast and celebrated Fathers Day with mimosas - delicious! I had the avocado toast, hubby had the BLT, kids had the bowls - everyone was super happy with their selection! Very fresh and delectable! Most def will be back when visiting Charlotte!

Had the days special of chicken tortilla soup and a chicken sandwich. So delicious. The Gouda cheese and the bun were my favorite! That soup was the best chicken tortilla I've ever had. Cute space, friendly service. I recommend it.

Had Roots Cafe cater a Bridal Shower last weekend (yes...kept to 10 person limit) and the food was AMAZING! We had Turkey and Brie sandwiches, chicken salad sandwiches, salmon/cream cheese with cucumber, salad with fabulous poppyseed dressing, fruit and lavender/lemon cookies. Yum! Very fresh and farm to table tasty. Olivia is wonderfully professional and very helpful to plan a menu. Would give 10 stars if we could. Will be catering wedding too and we already cant wait for the meal!

Ellie Mae approved! That is the highest rating I can give a restaurant! We ordered the breakfast Sammy and burrito. Both were amazing! We ordered ahead of time before we arrived per the instructions on Roots Instagram page. Food was ready when we arrived and we sat outside. Everything was safe and I highly recommend supporting this local of restaurant. Thanks!
