Local & Organic Food Heaven
Posted on 06 / 21 / 2014
The Root Cafe is my favorite restaurant in Little Rock. It has a really cool atmosphere - it used to be an old diner/drive through (not totally sure) and now it is decorated in a cosy/alternative style. There's outdoor seating in a pretty garden area with some slides & kids toys. There's also a patio around the restaurant that is heated during the colder months. Now the most important part - the food! It is not all vegetarian - and indeed there is more meat on the menu than veggie. However, the vegetarian (& vegan) food that they have is phenomenal. Think really good sandwiches, salads, & veggie sides. My personal favorite is the spicy banh mi sandwich (made with grilled tofu). They also have tons of delicious locally made drinks (soda, kombucha, beer, coffee, etc.) and really good baked goods.
