I've been to Root 3 times for brunch and have enjoyed each one. I've had the tofu scramble (twice) which has good flavoring and came with greens (in scramble) + nice home fries and a vegan biscuit. The tofu bites are very nice, although too many (in my opinion) for one or even two people, but great for a takeaway snack. The liege waffles are a nice firm texture (though not crisply) and the strawbery basil sauce and coconut creme was unique and delicious - see picture I uploaded for Root. I've also gotten the sweet potato quesadillas and hush puppies to go and enjoyed those also.
Although this place is small, I've so far never had a problem getting seated (nor have I ever seen it empty). The staff is really nice and portions are large. I wish they had more/different juice options (and bigger menu overall), but for a tiny sandwich shop, they have great options.
Great Food (especially brunch), Friendly Staff, Large Portions
