Root on Broadway
This small but bright and airy vegan spot is a cheery place to sit and enjoy a quick snack. Banana smoothies and watermelon and cucumber juice are the perfect hydrating pick-me-up on a hot day, while the grain bowls with sweet potatoes, raisins, and white beans are plenty hearty themselves. Their sandwiches (on the menu as “toasts“) are great, too—go with the banana almond joy, which is sweet and filled with peanut butter, bananas, coconut and cacao nibs, or the savory avocado toast topped with everything bagel seasoning and pea shoots. The owners, who you’ll always find chatting with people about what’s happening around town, also own Get the Scoop, which serves ice cream that’s churned onsite.
