Roots Cafe, a new restaurant tucked away off South Boulevard in South End,  just added new items to their breakfast and lunch/dinner menus.

Owner and chef Craig Barbour is always tweaking things in the kitchen and dining room to “figure out what’s working and not working.” He’s made Roots a destination for coffee addicts, wine and beer drinkers, and foodies.

Check out their coffee subscription program: $25/mo for unlimited drip coffee and $45/mo for unlimited coffee of all types (cold brew, drip, espresso, latte, cappuccino, macchiato, etc)

At dinnertime, you’ll now notice chiller music and dimmer lights.

You can also snag a free wine flight on Tuesdays throughout December to really top off your dinner.


Things are changing on the weekends, too.

Brunch will be served Saturday and Sunday from 8 AM – 3 PM, and the restaurant will be closed for dinner.

You can expect to see a weekly brunch special and enjoy live music by local bands while you sip on mimosas.

I got a taste of new items on the lunch/dinner menu. Take a look.

Grilled Sweet Potato and Steak Bowl

Marinated grilled mid-rare grass-fed beef, grilled sweet potatoes, simmered black beans, corn and chimichurri, $12

Grilled Chicken Sandwich

Grilled chicken on an everything roll with provolone, sprouts, bacon, Dijon and honey, $9

Pastrami Reuben

Thick-cut house-cured smoked pastrami on local rye bread with tomato remoulade, sauerkraut and melted swiss, $11

Roasted Brussels and Cauliflower Gratin ($3.50 each)

Roasted Butternut and Beets ($3.70), Warm Navy Beans ($3.70), Carrot and Chick Pea Salad ($3.50)

And here’s the first peek at the new breakfast menu.
