The Root Cafe [Little Rock, AR]

I’ve kinda had writer’s block…  After radio silence for a few weeks, I’ve figured out what to write about.  It all happened when we went out for brunch today at my new favorite place and I was like “duh, write about how amazing this place is”.  Thank you to the brunch Gods at The Root Cafe for the inspiration.

We came here for lunch a couple of weeks ago.  At the time I didn’t really know a lot about this place, but I am so happy this is where we decided to eat!  When I walked in, the first thing I noticed was the laid back atmosphere.  Everyone is super friendly- patrons and staff.  I tried the Spicy Bahn Mi sandwich (minus jalapeños), which I’m now referring to as “my soul mate sandwich”.


They source most of their ingredients from Arkansas farms.  You can actually see exactly where the ingredients come from!  See?  Here’s a map, right on the wall when you walk in:

The decor is so cute.  It’s super eclectic and I think those wrapped tables are the bee’s knees!



Lot’s of areas to eat outside, if you are into that sort of thing.  I’m not.


This place is bumpin’, so be prepared to wait in line for a bit.  I promise it is worth it and it goes pretty quickly.  I had the biscuits and gravy this morning and it was delicious.  My husband had an omelette and it was freakin’ good.

Hey Root Cafe, if you are reading this, can I have a barrel of whatever dressing you put on your salads?  I could seriously drink it with a straw.


We also grabbed some blueberry jam on our way out.  We just tried it on some buttered toast and it’s so yummy!  My husband is sort of a jam connoisseur and it got his stamp of approval.


All in all, it’s a great place to be.  Everyone is happy to be there, the food is fresh and delicious and it’s a fun/ laid-back atmosphere.  Go.
