Here's to another year!

Hey folks. The new year is upon us & we are excited to see what it brings for this community of music, art, family & friends at Roots cafe. We are also celebrating another year of serving all of you. As of Dec. 27th, Roots turned 3! It's crazy how time has zoomed by. It's amazing to see what a great family of friends has formed from a tiny little cafe. As cheesy as it may sound, this is how I measure success. Coffee may pay the bills (sometimes) but community is what really keeps this place alive. So thanks to everyone who really understands what we are truly about. We look forward to your continued love & support. Be well, be blessed. See you all soon.

Here's a fun video for you to enjoy! Happy New years everyone!!!!

Winter sucks!!!

We've all experienced the long, cold winters of NY! I'm sure we've all said, or at least thought to ourselves as we slip on the ice or shovel our way out of our apt....*#@*^# WINTER SUCKS!!!
However, we all know the reality is that winter in NY is a magical time to gather with friends, drink hot coco & cider & celebrate the warmth we find in community.

So...let's do just that! Please Join us for the Roots Holiday Ex-STRAW-vaganza: "WINTER SUCKS!"

An Installation comprised of re-purposed plastic straws and recycled materials.
