Foodie Finds – The Roots Cafe

My previous and always office buddy and I went out for brunch in her neighborhood a couple of weeks ago.  She’s a lover of food like me and always impresses me with the places she finds.  She asked me to meet her at The Roots Cafe and I just expected what I deem ‘normal’ cafe fare – salads, soups, sandwiches, etc.  It was so much more and then some.

The BenniPoached eggs, heirloom tomato (seasonal) and choice of protein on toasted English muffin. Topped with housemade hollandaise and served with house potatoes.

I’m a sucker for any version of Eggs Benedict presented to me on a menu, however, I almost didn’t order this beauty.  There was so much on the menu that appealed to me it was very hard to choose.  I was sold by the fact that I could choose my own protein from things like homemade sausage to vegetarian options.  So, I ordered it and it was SOOOO good.

I think I should go back at least once a week until I’ve tried everything on the menu.  Maybe next time I’ll order ‘The Peeto‘ (marinated grass-fed beef thinly sliced on baguette with horseradish avocado aioli, pepper jack cheese, sweet onions and caramelized jalapeno served with house made au-jus), or perhaps the ‘Roots Mole Taco Salad‘ (choice of grass fed beef or quinoa with house made mole seasoning, baby greens, black eyed peas, jicama, chimichurri slaw. Heirloom tomatoes, red onion, avocado and salsa fresca).  Decisions, decisions.
