We eat here every time we are in Bloomington. It is fresh and tasty and unique. They do things with non-meat-protein that completely put me in awe. Their juices are great too. Love the atmosphere and the prices are totally reasonable.

The Thai food at Roots (on the square) is fantastic. However, their menu appears to be unfocused with many different options. Some people like this however. They also make a good smoothie. Give it a try.

Service can be inconsistent, but the the variety of vegetarian options is fantastic. Nice vibe and great smoothies and juices.

I was so surprised that Roots used to be all vegetarian/vegan. Now they do serve some meat, but there is still such an overwhelming assortment of veg options. When I first went there with a friend, they told us it would take 30 minutes to...More
