I used to live closer to this place, and I regret moving away. I'm not a vegan/vegetarian at all, but I love the food here. For what it is, they could easily be charging more than they do. I also get a serious sense of community here: the

OK...I like Roots. The food is good 90% of the time. Really good. Once in a while it can be a bit bland, but not often. The people behind the counter are all really nice. My only issue is that they need more than one person behind the counter. I understand that service is slowed down when only one person is handling everyone, but I also feel like sometimes the person behind the counter is just way too non-chalant and casual about serving people as other patiently wait, i.e. chatting on the cell phone and slowly ringing up people, verry slowly serving the food as if there was only one customer there, without acknowledging the rest of the folks that are waiting. It happened once before when I was a patron and vowed never to go back, but then things got better for a while with two people behind the counter, and then they went back to this same one person behind the counter...So I'm not sure I will be back and I've seen other customers walk out because they weren't acknowledged.

Pros: Mostly Yummy Food

Cons: Slowww Service That Doesn't Always Acknowledge Patrons

Used to eat here many years ago when I lived just down the street and had probably the most delicious veggie burger I had ever tasted! It was refreshing to eat a veggie burger where I could see the veggies, yet it was smooth and flavorful and served with a delicious sauce and wheat bun. Definitely not the high sodium, mass produced veggie pattie thing I recall eating elsewhere!

Nice little vegan restaurant on the outskirts of Harlem. Pastas and the tofu filets are good, as are the lima beans in coconut milk. Get the side of plantains.

Love It! I have been there more times than I can remember and I have never been disappointed. The food, juices and home-made deserts are guaranteed to convert meat eating friends into vegetarians. Healthy, tasty and cheap, the cuisine is served by the friendly, relaxed staff who have operated this Harlem mainstay for more than a decade.

Pros: Food, Staff, Cost

Cons: None

I love these folks ... they have been imitated many times but they were there first. The Original Gangstas of veggie food, back before it was cool ... You will get a bellyful of cheap excellent food and a warm reception from whoever's working there. Also they're right near the Studio Museum in Harlem which is beautiful and has free events like music & poetry.

The food here is a treat! It's not the fanciest decor in the world but the food atmosphere and service makes it all the better. It's a Jamacan paradise with a plethora of vegetarian dishes to choose from. I highly recommend it!
