It’s alright - Edit

Wasn’t amazing. Definitely could have used more seasonings.

Only 1 small complaint - Edit

Super trendy and friendly restaurant. The vegan had the Indian Bhurji with vegan eggs and the non-vegan had the Frenchie.

The flat bread was a little tough and I wasn't sure if I should eat it as a wrap or cut it with a fork and knife. I ended up doing both after trying to have it like a wrap ended up with me having sauce all over my hands. Great flavors though. Absolutely loved it.

Frenchie had amazing flavors too, good cinnamonie bites.

The coffee though..... sorry, it wasn't good.

Pros: great vegan options in Boise

Cons: everything is made fresh, so it'll take a little t

Horrible - Edit

***EDIT*** I have been to Wild Root Cafe a few times for breakfast and enjoyed my meal (The picture associated with this review is of one of the breakfast dishes that I had enjoyed. I have since changed my review to reflect my most recent experience). I came in yesterday for lunch. I got there at 10:45, which I thought would've left me plenty of time to make a Noon appointment at the VA. It was a busy morning, but it should not take 45 minutes to get a wrap. People who came in after me were being served their food also. So around 11:30, I asked for a refund, which they gave me. They also gave me my order since it had just come up. Which, at the time, I thought was nice of them to do. The owner's wife gave me some attitude about everything being cooked to order and that it takes time. I totally get that, but 45 minutes??? So, I made it to my appointment with 10 minutes to spare so I decide to try to hurry and eat my food. I took a few bites and realized that there was chicken in the wrap. I order the INDIAN “NACHOS” FLATBREAD without any meat since I am a vegetarian. I would like to thank Wild Root Cafe for completely ruining my lunch!

great vegan options - Edit

The food here is terrific and the staff is very nice. They can be really busy at lunch so I usually use their online ordering.

awesome vegan breakfast - Edit

I don't think I've ever had a better vegan breakfast! They have follow your heart vegan eggs and cashew cheese that you can sub into any of the regular menu items. I had the vegan burrito and it was phenomenal. My husband had the Indian style flat bread sandwich which he loved and he's picky! They had some vegan cookies that we grabbed to go. The lady at the counter was so nice and helpful. We don't live in the area but if we did we'd be back!

Pros: vegan options for breakfast

Great vegan food! - Edit

This is some of the best vegan food in Boise for breakfast or lunch. They even have vegan eggs...not just tofu scramble. They have a vegan banh mi, which is hard to find here. Their dinner menu is light on vegan options. It's pricey.

Pros: Menu labels vegan options. , Have vegan eggs. , Vegan banh mi.

Cons: Expensive.

Vegan Banana Foster - Edit

I love this place, it is definitely worth checking out. They not only offer multiple vegan dishes, but they also have vegan pastries and other items behind the counter. My favorite dish that I have had from them thus far is the banana foster pancakes, I just wish they offered these everyday and not just on Saturday. I have also ordered the wrapped, with a side of sweet potato hash, which was so, so oily. I would sub for a different side.

Pros: Multiple Vegan Options, including pastries, Friendly staff, Beautiful decor

Cons: Oily sweet potato hash, Pancakes only available on Saturday

Delicious Whole Foods - Edit

Really good vegan dishes. Nice that they have more than just one option. All dishes really heavy with fresh veggies. Vegan options labelled. Substitute Follow Your Heart vegan eggs and cashew cheese in their non vegan breakfast dishes.
