Terrible store and horrible customer service. Their prices are higher than Trader Joe's, Henry's, Sprouts, Whole Foods and Vitamin Shoppe. The service is rude. The customer is usually wrong. Don't complain to any of the owners or management there, because they don't care about you. My heart has been broken so many times watching the freak show that ensues when the female owner loses it with customers. She is a real piece of work. She's got a reputation for doing that and she looks a little off. The worst thing you can do is make excuses and keep going back to support this business. I decided not to go back because I get so much better service at all of the OTHER stores where the services is warm, friendly, caring, competent, professional, attentive and quick. I love how all of the other stores treat you like family and actually care about helping you. Grassroots is an emotional mine field. I don't say this lightly because I'm not too sure about the male owner of this place, but since he chooses to stay in business with the extremely sensitive emotionally rude woman there, he's obviously in collusion and probably makes excuses for her incorrigible behavior, that or he's just like her. Who knows? I have noticed that they don't care about customers and they are always willing to make the customer wrong if she gets annoyed. Stay away from this place for your own sanity. Don't bother supporting this place because they don't need your help due to their exhorbitant prices! You'll go broke shopping here and for what? Just save your money and take advantage of the wonderful customer service that you WILL receive at Trader Joe's, Henry's, Sprouts, Whole Foods or Vitamin Shoppe but AVOID, repeat, you just AVOID Grassroots. I am saying this because I care enough to inform fellow South Pasadena residents. Caveat Emptor! If anyone knows the female owner's name (I've stayed away from her for self preservation, but it's always a good freak show when she gets crazy with customers) and if you know who I'm talking about, please speak up. I can't believe this place has been in business that long with such a reactionary person. She even looks disturbed. I don't think this woman could last in a regular job as an employee without getting promptly fired for how she manages the place. That's the honest to God truth. Thank goodness there is freedom of speech and reviews on the Internet.

Grassroots: wonderful place and owner. The fire that caused damage to all the stores but they have all been rebuilt and happy to say the Golden China (erroneously referred to as the China Dragon by reviewer Micki C )the Grassroots and the others are now alive and thriving.

I can only afford to eat here every couple of weeks but I love it! Their burritos are fresh, full of flavor and HUGE! I also love that they offer vegetarian options WITHOUT soy! Finally, a cafe that understands that not every vegetarian or vegan on earth eats soy. So thank you for not putting tofu or fake meat into everything :)

Great food, great staff... a little pricey but some menu items, like burritos, are very large and could be split into two meals.

I have not been able to find any news online about the fire that seems to have gutted Grassroots and China Dragon, and done I don't know how much damage to the other stores in that wing of the Von's shopping center. My heart and prayers go out to the owners of all the businesses, and I wonder what plans Grassroots has for moving or rebuilding.

I go to Grassroots at least once or twice a week. They have these awesome fresh baked cranberry walnut and apple walnut muffins that I swear by. They fill you up with fiber and are a great meal substitute if you are on the go. They have a lunch counter with fresh natural chicken and vegan entrees.
They make a vegetarian burrito for me with brown rice and pinto beans and lots of green chilis (yum!). They have all natural farm raised turkeys for the holidays and home made tamales.
This place is a South Pasadena must visit.

PROS: Local, fresh, friendly
CONS:

Great little natural foods store with an excellent cafeteria-style restaurant inside. I've enjoyed everything I've eaten there.
