First visit to Roots Cafe after hearing about it from my husband so many times over about how fantastic it is. And he was right! The kids have a little play area which is perfect for one to enjoy a relaxed meal without having a child to fuss over. The food is fantastic and the setting is lovely as well. I didn't get to go back and eat a proper meal but the sandwich was just right. And the fact that my 6 year old had two helpings means they have done a great job on taste!

The very rustic decor and the wholesome breakfast options (poha, upma) make it a fun healthy place to go to in the mornings. Sundays get very crowded if you don't reach before 10.
The prices are very reasonable and quite surprising given Gurgaon's cost of living. In the rainy season, earthworms / flies are a bit of an issue.

This small cafe takes you back to the memory lane. A simple, nice, peaceful and traditional place. It has a very limited food menu with very reasonable price. Its like visiting a place from old times when places used to be good, food used to be tasty and the minds used to be peaceful.

Was introduced to Roots by:
-----------------------------------------
Couple of Friends + Zomato

Number of visits so far:
---------------------------------
Three

Selections:
----------------
Dishes: Poha, Scrambled Egg, Cheese Grilled Sandwich, Masala Omelette, Veg Biryani Platter
Beverages: Masala Tea, Ginger Tea, Cold Coffee, French Press Coffee

Penny worthiness:
--------------------------
Optimal (by Gurgaon Standards)

Overall Atmosphere and Character:
--------------------------------------------------
Unique; Its proximity to nature in a concrete jungle like Gurgaon provides it an uncommon dimension.

Spread:
-----------
Decent; Offers limited number of options; however, one doesn't expect a 'Wazwaan' at a cafe

Taste:
---------
Basic. Not at all spicy and not much to talk about. They can do a better job in this sphere

Service:
-----------
Service is prompt, however, during peak hours, the turn around time increases as the number of attendants are minimal

Will visit again:
---------------------
Maybe Yes

Overall Verdict:
----------------------
High on character, just OK on taste, not too heavy on your wallet

Pre-winters to sit out in the open sun was the plan, but as it turned out, the rain Gods who tried to play spoil sport added to the overall glory of an open air brunch - drizzle drizzle rain with hot french-press coffee and a specially created 6 inch x 6 inch huge brownie. What a day it was.

Thankful to Vinod and his team for everything.

Maybe the choices on the menu are not elaborate but the varied cuisines was a refreshing change. Traditional Indian breakfast to continental and at prices that don't burn a hole in your pocket. Perfect place for a Sunday Brunch.

The food was cooked well and tasted good too, so no extra spices or oils, just perfect along great taste and environment. We ate to our hearts content and then a walk around the park. A day well spent.
