Delicious Vegan Coffe Shop - Edit

Situated in the middle to city, next to the central station and at the beginning of Bahnhofstrasse, Roots is one of my favourite restaurants in Zurich.

It's set up as a little and very casual restaurant - coffee shop with a few tables and the counter where you can order directly your breakfast or lunch to eat there or to go.

Their menu is fresh, colourful, delicious and full of micronutrients. Freshly made smoothies and juices, salads, sandwiches, acai bowls... If you love conscious, fresh, vegan food go to Roots, it's a great place for a quick bite.

Fresh, healthy and delicious - Edit

Roots is a small place with a focus on fresh and healthy food. Everything is vegan, they have different salads/bowls, sandwiches and wraps, and lots of fresh smoothies and juices.

Roots is very near to the central railway station, so it is very convenient to drop by and have a quick lunch or grab something for take-away. I went there while waiting for a connecting train. I tried the avocado sandwich (9 CHF) and their Wake-Up-Juice (4dl for 10 CHF). Both were delicious! I especially liked the wholemeal bread that they use for the sandwich – so tasty and also filling!
The prices appeared to me to be extremely expensive then. But everything is extremely expensive in Switzerland, even in the supermarket. Zurich is considered to be the most expensive city in the world, rents and wages are much higher than in other places – taking this into consideration I think the prices are fair.
If again in Zurich (or changing trains there…) I’d go there again. There was very little waiting time when I was there and the friendly staff seemed to work very efficiently.

Best vegan place in Zürich - Edit

Awesome salads, juices, sandwiches, ... and probably the best Acai Bowl you will find in Switzerland. Everything is vegan, the only exception is that they serve cowmilk up on request. Located very close to the main train station

Pros: Pretty tasty & good looking vegan stuff

great for a quick lunch - Edit

ich war ein paar mal zum lunch hier. roots ist noch eine art familienbetrieb, hier wird alles vor den augen gemacht. mit viel enthusiasmus. so gut das natürlich geht während der mittagszeit, wo es eher eilt. dann ist halt ab und zu schlangestehen und warten angesagt.

belohnt wird man dann aber mit einem optisch und gemacklich tollen resultat, in das reinzuhauen allen sinnen freude macht. roots versteht sich eher als takeaway, obwohl man meist auch im zweckmäßig eingerichteten innenraum ein plätzchen findet (reservationen sind jedoch nicht möglich, dafür ist es zu klein).

die preise bewegen sich im mittelfeld, aber das ist schon klar an dieser lage, denn die immopreise sind auch hinter der teuersten straße der schweiz nicht billig.

ich komme auf jeden fall immer wieder gerne her und schaue, was für neue kreationen (meist mit originellen namen) auf der menütafel stehen.

Pros: freshly made, a bit pricy, eat in or take away

Cons: you may have to queue

Centrally located vegan food - Edit

Roots is a trendy all vegan restaurant in the heart of Zürich. They offer a variety of salads, bowls, and sandwiches, as well as juices. The portions are rather small for the price, however the food is delicious.

Pros: Great vegan options

Cons: Expensive

Best place in Zürich for healthy vegan food - Edit

This is my absolute favorite place in Zurich for breakfast and lunch. They have delicious cold pressed juices, smoothies and breakfast bowls as well as a good variety of sandwiches and salad bowls. Everything is super fresh, tasty and made with love. The staff is super friendly too. Around lunch time you might have to wait a little but it's absolutely worth it!

Pros: healthy , close to main station, fresh and delicious

A (somewhat) hidden gem - Edit

Ideally located close to Zurich's main station in a side street to the popular Bahnhofstrasse, this lovely little venue is easy to miss - and what a shame that would be: The place has a clean and modern look while still being cozy, the staff is very friendly and shows great attention to detail when freshly preparing your food, and the (exclusively vegan, as far as I could tell) menu contains a well-rounded selection of sweet and savory choices no matter whether it is breakfast, lunch or just a snack you're after. Finally, the prices, while not exactly cheap (this is Zurich, after all...), are certainly fair and will allow you to satisfy your appetite for plant goodness without putting a major dent in your budget. Recommended!

Pros: Clean, friendly staff, moderate prices, good vegan

Cons: Not an overly large place, might lack seating spac

breakfast and lunch in roots :) - Edit

I was just recently in Zurich for two days and ate here both days :) had a beautiful Mediterranean sandwich and green juice the first day. It was so good I had to go back again the next morning. I had a lovely bowl of amaranth porridge with mango, passion fruit, coyo and banana :) everything is so fresh and tasty and made to order. All of the staff are extremely friendly and helpful, a definite highlight to my trip here and would highly recommend it to anyone :D

Chakotay 14 Oct 2015 - I can confirm those statements! I myself had a good first impression when I tastet "Matt's Lemonade" (apples, lemons, mint and ginger) and Chia pudding.
As I don't live in Zürich I had am not as often in Roots as I would like to. But my sister is a frequently guest and loves the new opportunity to have some tasty and healthy vegan food while shopping.


But see for yourself. Here'e the webpage with lots of colourful photos: http://rootsandfriends.com
