Don't get me wrong, we enjoy the fried and the seafood as much as every other person, but after a point it just gets to you. Wild Roots gave us a break with a healthy, fresh and delicious lunch. It's a tiny place but definitely worth checking out!

We stopped here for lunch because my niece has celiac disease and finding gluten free fare in restaurants can be challenging. We ordered four sandwiches ( good), four smoothies and three scones for snack later (horrible, no one would eat them). We were surprised when our total came to $92 which is more than we spent to eat at a very nice full service restaurant down the road with a great gluten free menu (including dessert and a drink for everyone). It is great that Wild Roots provides such healthy options but due to the cost and the fact that no one would touch the scones (and we aren't that picky), I'm not sure we would eat here again, as the food was not worth the extra cost.

Bright faces. Healthy alternative oasis to the beach food drill you see almost everywhere.
Lynn, the owner, will serve you and educate you with a smile that comes from a successful inspired entrepreneur with a social environment zeal that will leave you with insight and appreciation for the careful and tedious process she takes daily to make sure you are what you eat.

This place goes to show that nutritious can also be delicious. There is a nice large menu. It is very clean. The staff is very friendly.

I can't say much that hasn't already been said. First time there today and I loved it! Looking forward to sampling everything eventually. Great to have another option at the beach and not have to decide between fried and cheese smothered. No, it isn't cheap, but the next time you eat on the beach here, look at your receipt and the huge tax they are required to collect. I think you'd find most locals usually eat off the beach, where there is less sales tax. But finding healthy food that tastes good will be worth an occasional trip to Wild Roots for me. It's less expensive than buying and cooking organic for myself.
