Our Customers Say

"I visited Roots again, with my grandson. Roots is an inclusive warm and welcoming refuge. We had our coffee and icecream alongside many other folk of all ages. It is pitched at making everyone welcome and it succeeds. Such a lovely friendly atmosphere. And then there is the great food choices. Priced appropriately, so you can find affordable options. Roots is a special community cafe...please support it. It delivers a great big hug!"
