We go here every once in a while for a hot date. But we also come for a great lunch with friends. The food portions can sometimes be small and sometimes big so ask when ordering so you know if you want a side. The food is so good. They offer a free meal near Thanksgiving for the public.

The other side of the building is another restaurant owned by the same woman called Heart & Soy where they make there own soy milk and tofu from scratch. That side serves food quicker and is more informal. Still amazing food and you can pick up a cupcake to go.

Vegan friendly!

I ate on the Roots side of the restaurant. The items ordered during this visit was the Hue soup, Braised Beets, and the Crispy Pita Chips. The pita chips stole the show. The dip was so savory and rich and the fried pita chips were so good. The braised beets were good but could have used some more salt. There were more potatoes than beets in the dish. The Hue soup was mostly noodles and contained a lot of cilantro along with tofu and fake ham. I would go back just to try more items on their menu. The atmosphere is peaceful but it does feel slightly fancier than Heart and Soy.
