We've been going to Kind Roots since it opened, and it has only gotten better. However, the chef cooking breakfast recently seems to have an attitude problem. I ordered my eggs "over medium" because I've learned that "over easy" means half-raw. The eggs arrived hard...More

Visited the cafe in may with my wife. I recommend the black bean burger. At this time however I think you should consider whether you even want to venture to Lexington at this time. They just don’t like conservatives. If you’re a DC liberal you’ll...More

A variety of salads, burgers and sandwiches with homemade buns and all. Chef Jay created unique flavor profiles and he had food that met almost any dietary need.

I had a club, not a sandwich, but a wrap; it was tasty. We had the address of the Cafe, but the lack of outdoor signage made finding the venue difficult. Worth the hunt, however.

Recently named BEST LUNCH in the Shenandoah Valley...Also 2nd best Vegan/Vegetarian restaurant in the valley- We specialize in local product- Beef, Bacon, eggs (our own flock), ginger, produce, sausage, cheese, and more! We are a great stop just off the interstate! Please come and enjoy one of the better meals you have ever had. Located in College Square Shopping Center just off Route 11 (N Lee Hwy). Look for the big GREEN AWNING and that's us (inside of the YMCA). Landmarks INSIDE of the shopping center are Peebles and Tractor Supply. Landmarks OUTSIDE of the shopping center to look for are Suntrust and Applebees
