Fine - offers vegan options - Edit

I definitely think that this place is worth a visit if you are visiting Taunton and need a vegan lunch. They offer several vegan sandwiches and burgers amidst a selection of other vegetarian foods. They also had some nicely decorated vegan cakes available (we didn't have them but they looked lovely).

We visited this place because we heard they had a salad bar and offered vegan food. I guess salad isn't really a speciality at Roots. It was a bit drab and uninventive. You pay £3.50 for the salad bar, but have to put it onto a very small plate (more like the size of a teacup saucer)... although we still felt thankful to find something. We also bought some side dishes to go with it. The potato & sweet potato wedges were really tasty - that was our highlight - although the home-made hummus wasn't really anything to write home about (disappointing).

The staff were fine, although they certainly could have been a little friendlier. We asked an easy question and got the feeling that it was a bit of an effort for them to answer, bit hurried and rushed (which was strange because it wasn't like there was anyone else in the queue).

Having said that. Someone else might have a completely different and wonderful experience there...

yum! - Edit

Really enjoyed the tofu and bean burger, fantastic flavour I'll be back!! Choice of soya shakes (I had strawberry) and really nice wedges and sweet potatoes with the burger!

Friendly knowledgable staff, only issue is it was closing at 4, 5 some days so will have to get your takeaway for lunch or an early dinner, highly recommended though!!

Pros: great burgers , service, vegan cakes

Cons: closes early

Varied menu options... - Edit

Have not explored the full menu, just the drinks and cakes. Good choice of drinks, plant milks and cake options, service usually friendly. Pricing not always clear. Think I went for a chai style tea and was charged extra for the 'milk'. Atmosphere not so good close to closing time, as most of cafe is closed with chairs on tables, so just doesn't feel so relaxing, as earlier in day. Very positive is the effort made to cater for the vegan diet, as Taunton doesn't seem to have enough veggies to support a fully vegetarian cafe or restaurant.

Pros: Varied menu., Vegan choices
