Great place.
Report | 9 months ago
Everything was good - shared a huge salad, husband had manicotti, one of the June entrees and loved it. I had fish tacos which were excellent and turned out to have a side salad on the plate. Great dinner, friendly people to take your order - we ordered at the counter took a number, and they bring your dinner out to you. Casual but silverware wrapped in black cloth napkins on the tables. Great place - we'll return.

Order at the counter and then they bring the food. I guess I was expecting it to be a regular restaurant setting. Have great beers on tap and the food was pretty good.

My wife and I were exceedingly pleased with the quality of their cuisine. We split two entrees - the rainbow trout and a chicken pesta dish, both of which were delectable. Additionally, I was served one of the creamiest cappuccinos I've ever tasted. We'll definitely return!

The food was good, reasonably priced and tasted very fresh. I would go there again. I really enjoy restaurants that are quaint, "chef cooked" meal, and friendly people. Good place!

From Our Editors

The culinary team at Common Roots Cafe believes that the best way to create a welcoming restaurant is to fully embrace local flavor in every sense of the word. Even the interior speaks to this mission?reclaimed barn wood makes up the dining room's floorboards and tabletops, the counter is composed of recycled cardboard, and the air is one-hundred percent Minnesotan. The overall effect is one of casual warmth, an atmosphere that makes the cafe an ideal spot for guests to chew on eclectic, yet accessible, cuisine and relax with a choice of 10 local craft beers.

The menu itself also bursts with hometown pride, highlighting local organic and sustainable ingredients. As much as half of the restaurant's food comes from farms located within 250 miles of Minneapolis, while some produce is picked right outside the door at the cafe's urban garden. And since the selection of ingredients alters with the seasons, the chefs adapt their dishes each month to showcase their fresh flavors. Previous offerings have included redfish tacos with jicama slaw, mac 'n' cheese with local cheddar, and house-made tagliatelle pasta topped with a hearty bison bolognese sauce. Bites are complemented with sips from a drink list featuring wines?many made from organic grapes?and local beers. And, in the unlikely event that diners leave any food on their plates, the scraps are carefully composted to continue the cafe's green production cycle.
