    Coffee is cheap af for the great quality you're getting. Great vegetarian and vegan options that even those who enjoy a good burger will find filling and massively flavorful. Wish the WiFi was better.

    Raw night on Thursday is a good way to try things you probably haven't had before. Plus it's vegan. Try making any of your favorite espresso based beverages with almond or soy milk.

    I have never been disappointed with anything I have ordered here. Even better than the coffee and the food, the staff makes The Root the special place I Love to relax.

    Great coffee! Skilled baristas. Awesome tea blends. And there's this sandwich that I can't get enough of called the ___baked and toasted. It's veggies and hummos. So good.

    The Fun Guy pizza is fantastic. Never thought I'd see good pizza out of NY. We also had the burrooto which was decent. Amazing cappuccino. Yummy. Hippy veggie food done right.

    Really good breakfast sandwiches and scones. Also good chai, which they make themselves, not from a box.

    Nowhere is cozier, more local or friendlier than The Root. Only problem? It's usually jam-packed.

    Cinnamon coffee is pretty good. Refills are $1. Lot of hippies here. It's a vegan/organic place so if you're into that. Also no Muzak which can be good or bad.
