Once found, their menu will be in your car and in the menu drawer at home. Anytime I required to bring something to a... read more

The only part of this place that is gourmet are the outrageous prices. Hubby and I got 2 different sandwiches-they were mediocre at best. Got a carrot chick pea side order and that was yucky. The one cookie we bought, cherry something, was not good. The only good thing is the outside decor is really cute. That lured us in... More

Great food took a while for sandwiches, but they were good! A bit pricey for lunch, 40 dollars for 2 sandwiches, chips and guacamole! Still good, but I have had just as good without the wait.

Stopped here for lunch with 2 friends after reading other reviews. We were not disappointed. Two of us had the crunchy Asian chicken wrap. It was very tasty. Another diner had a salad with pork. He also liked his dish. I would return if I lived in the area.

We took a wrong turn trying to get to the Friendly's (at our young son's request) and wound up here (luckily he's young enough to switch plans and go with it). We are so glad we did! The shop is fun to look around in and the food is delicious and creative. I got the beet burger, which was really... More

This place is off in a plaza away from the Rehoboth main drag but it is worth it if you can find it. The atmosphere is really nice, there is a counter you order your food from and then when it is ready you go pick it up. My husband pointed out that they had the "chips" I like. They... More

Our intention was to eat next door they were on a one hour wait so we gave Root Gourmet a look and we are glad we did. The girl who took our order was patient and explained things off the menu. They offer gluten free to the sandwich items. I had the vegan beet burger! Delicious. Our party also had... More

The sandwiches were not amazing and the prices were premium. Service was good, but since these were purchased for a picnic, we dealt with them as there wasn't any choice!

Awesome food, flavor out of this world. Definitely have to try to the chicken curry salad!! And don't worry if you want to try everything they can give you a sample to try it all :) Highly recommend the carrot cake, for all of those people who hate raisins in their cake this is RAISIN FREE!! Everything is farm fresh... More
